“What is the best table tennis blade?”, and “How to select a table tennis racket?” These are the 2 common questions that every new (beginner) table tennis players ask. But I want to answer you “There is no best racket”.
“The best racket is the equipment that suite your playing style”.
Do you need a Viscaria blade, a DHS Hurricane 3 national blue sponge rubber and a Butterfly Tenergy 05 professional version to improve your table tennis? No! Choose a good blade for your playing style! Do not choose another one’s paddle. Coach EmRatThich helps you understand your table tennis equipment (racket + rubber) under the viewpoint of a Chinese coach. From now, you can choose your best table tennis combo setup including racket and rubber.
Attentions! Some website just makes a bad review of the paddle. The review is not credible because the equipment is biased to the referral subject.
How to choose the best Chinese table tennis rubber
- table tennis rubber is tacky, which can generate a lot of spin with the proper technique
- always select the hard but thin Chinese rubber (2.10mm to 2.15mm)
- always take the harder sponge version (40 to 41 degree)
- avoid fake Provincial and National rubbers
There are many myths about Chinese rubber. See the video “the truth about Chinese tacky rubber”.
