Top 10 Best Table Tennis Racket in India 2020 | Reviews & Buying Guide

How to choose your Table Tennis Blade: A Perfect Guide
First of all, there are three primary components in a racket:
1. The Blade which is the wood part
2. Different types of Rubbers
3. Handle/ Grip
In the Blade, there are two different 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. It is 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 – It’s just straight up and down and used by the 10-15% people.
Speed of the Racket:
Probably the 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 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 starting the sport, you don’t 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) it’s 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 starting, for most players who are beginning 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 around 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 use a weight that’s 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 don’t want the whole overall racket to be too heavy don’t 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, it’s not 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 don’t recommend it to the beginners
4. Anti rubber is smooth on the outside, but it doesn’t grip the ball and mainly gives the 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.

  7. 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,

  8. 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

  9. 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.
