The speed of the paddle does not necessarily correspond with the weight of the bat. Try relaxing your arm and let it swing through faster to get a faster stroke. Then it is a matter of getting the timing right. At first you may miss the ball, but with concentrated practice you will start to get this right as well.
Watch the ball carefully and let your body adjust to the stroke and the weight of the bat. You will soon find improvement.
Hitting the ball flatter does get you more spin but it also loses you some accuracy.
