Hi Alois and Jeff,

First of all, A great work by you people for educating the world on Table Tennis secrets.

I wanted to know about one thing. It looks funny to ask but "What do you mean by a FAST bat"

I mean you can play faster shots with an entry level bat too. Does the "FAST" implies that you can generate more spin and speed with less effort?

Hi Mehul,

A fast bat means the ball bounce off it quicker.  So when you play a stronger shot the ball will go even faster.

Thanks for the feedback about the site.  It is always nice to hear it is helping.

Thanks for your quick reply Alois.

I got my answer. Also I checked out the bats available at pingskills. I was confused about whether to go for rook or touch. I am playing for three years now and considering to switch to a faster bat. As I was using a local bat, I am not sure how fast the rook is. 

Can you please make a comparision video between the two?

Hi Mehul,

If you have been playing for 3 years then you can probably go for the Touch with Mark V.
