Top 5 Best Table Tennis Racket Under ₹2500 in India 2020

How to choose your Table Tennis Blade: A Perfect Guide

First of all, there are two primary components in a racket:

1. The Blade which is the wood part
2. Different types of Rubbers

In the Blade, there are two differnt kinds of styles:

1. Shake hand style - 90% players around the world use this the shake hand style, you hold it like you are shaking hands with it and you choose both sides of the racket.

2. Penhold style - This style is more popular in Asia than it is in the western world but even in Aisa shake hand is becoming popular, so in penhold, you hold the racket a pen or chopsticks, and you are using just one side of the racket.

There are three types of handle style:

So when you are choosing your racket salesman will ask you what handle size you want and you are going to go what's that?

1. Flared - The flair comes in the middle and flares out the end and this probably used by over 80% of the people around the world

2. Anatomic - An anatomic handle, it bulges out a little bit on in the middle and then flares out a little bit at the end and near around 5-10% people around the world

3. Straight - Basically its just straight up and down and used by the 10-15% people.

Speed of the Racket:

Probably the most essential variable that you are going to choose is the speed of your Blade and the blade range in speed from very fast which would be an offensive plus rating to offensive minus, all-round and all the way down to the defensive minus which will be the slowest Blade and all the blades have a number speed rating so you can compare all the blades for how fast they are.

Why is the speed important?

Well if you are just starting in the sport you dont want a blade that is too fast, if the Blade is too fast what is going to happen is the ball is going to fly off the end of the table, you are not going to have any control.

What the speed of the Blade means is that the same amount of force the ball will go farther, with a defensive blade (if its slow speed) its not going to go far with the same amount of force as an offensive, so you not going to want one that is flying around too fast.

If you are just starting for most players who are beginning intermediate I would recommend an all-around speed and if you are living dangerously maybe offensive minus

Another choice to make is how heavy your Blade is?

Most blades range in weight from about 70 grams to 100 grams with average being about 87 grams.

Weight is a personal preference, some players think that if its heavier Blade they are going to get more power, some players feel with a lighter blade they are going to get more quickness but my feeling is you should just use a weight thats comfortable for you.

But keep in mind that you are using thick rubber the rubber can add a lot of weight to your Blade so if you dont want the whole overall racket to be too heavy dont choose a heavy blade.

Now let's talk about rubber there are four main types of rubber in Table tennis:

1. Smooth - the smooth rubber is the most popular for the modern game because you can get lots of speed and spin with the soft inverted rubber it is a flat surface with pips going toward the inside and a layer of sponge.

2. Short pips - the short pips rubber is still pretty popular but not nearly as popular as the sponge, its not a spinny because the ball doesn't grip it as much, but the pips are facing the outside there is a layer of sponge

3. Long pips - It has a spin reversal and mostly used by a defensive player and I dont recommend it to the beginners

4. Anti rubber is smooth on the outside but it doesn't grip the ball and mainly gives no spin shot

The decision you will need to make is what sponge thickness you will use, the rule of thumb is the thicker, the quicker, the thicker the sponge, the faster it will be and the thinner the sponge, the slower it will be and more control you can get with a thinner sponge

    Am looking at a bat with rubber which provides exceptional spin grip for any direction of bat movement. With hard outers. Looking at something which is Fast, has good spin & counterattack speed.

    Am open to buy from amazon/usa.


    1. According to ur description Stag Ninja Fire is best for u in Under ₹2500 price mark. And If u can tell me ur budget then I can tell u more suitable bats.

  12. Hello can you please refer me a racket around 1000 with the priority as follow

    Similar to that of ninja attack. Or it is the best?

  13. Hi Sunil,

    For an intermediate, I am looking for the best racket within 7-8k. Would be great if you could suggest something.


    1. Hi Akash, I would suggest you to go with GKI Euro Jumbo.


  14. Hi Sunil,

    Might need your advice for my TT bat.
    I play almost daily in office for about an hour.
    You can say we are NOT beginners now.
    I am more of a defensive player than offensive.

    My friends have the following bats and my opinion after playing these:
    GKI Offensive XX (around 700) - Too heavy for my taste.
    Ninja Fire (around 1400) - Very good weight but I felt it was poor in control.
    Wakaba 1000 (around 1100) - Felt way too light weight. Didn't like it. Didn't like the shots it generated as well.

    So, based on the above, would it be possible to recommend a bat for me?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Hey Kasi,

      Your mentions:
      1) GKI XX (All round bat, speed-92, spin-92, control-96 and weight 89g)
      2) Ninja Fire (Offensive bat , speed-92, spin-92, control-72 and weight 73g)
      3) Wakaba 1000 (Offensive bat, speed-85, spin-75, control-75 and weight 82g)
      So according to these u can go for:
      1) GKI Euro XX
      2) GKI Euro V

    2. Hi Sunil,

      Purchased the GKI Euro V bat from flipkart and received it this Monday. My observations so far:
      1. Lighter but not to the point I would like it. Would have preferred even lighter.
      2. Control is very good.
      3. The Red-rubber side seems to generate decent spin.
      4. The Black-rubber side is neither generating the desired spin nor any speed.

      I have mixed feelings after playing with that bat for 2-3 hours. Not sure if I should return it back.

  15. Hi. Is wakaba 3000 better than ninja fire? I'm getting wakaba 3000 at a lesser price than ninja fire. Should I go for it?

  16. Hi i play table tennis for about 1-2 hours a day. And i love to play chops also i am a defensive player. I played with kunfu dx once i liked.
    But what do you suggest

  17. Hai...I will play daily 1-2 hours table tennis, I would like to have best bat in which i can chop (Best Spin) and play shots as well, suggest best bat. Also please suggest Which bat is best whether Butterfly or GKI

  18. Hi, I purchased ninja fire recently. Is there any differences between red and black rubber in this one. If yes, then which one should be used when. Another thing I want to buy one more racket for my wife similar to ninja fire but not ninja( as wanted to try another racket). Please recommend.

    1. Hey Alok,
      Go for GKI Euro V or GKI Euro XX .
      In some rubbers there are differences between the black and red versions, and in others there are virtually none. Typically the red will be faster and a bit less spinny, if there is a difference at all.

    2. Thanks Sunil, I would probably go for Euro V. Just curious what is the major difference between Offensive xx and Euro V as they look similar in terms of speed/spin/control.

  19. Hi sunil.I am playing since 1 year in my college and I am going to play in my college sports meet next month.I don't have a racquet.please suggest me one with good power speed and control and anti spin.I like heavy bats and with broad grip
