Hello, Alois and Jeff.
I practice a lot with a robot, and do not want to wear out my fairly expensive playing paddle. I am looking for a durable lightweight paddle but do not want something that is totally different than my 'real' paddle.
Someone suggested that speed is much less important while practicing strokes, and that getting something with a lot of spin would allow me to learn strokes that would be very similar to those I could perform with my good paddle.
Does that sound right to you? you have a suggestion about an inexpensive rubber that fits that description?
Unfortunately the rubber is a real cost of playing. However it is important to use the same rubber for your training and matches. The differences and adjustments will be difficult if you are constantly changing rackets. When making an error you won’t know where it is your technique or the adjustment to the different racket.
