Hey pingskills, 

When I watch your videos, I notice that your paddle doesn't have side tape, but that's not what i'm wondering about.

What I AM wondering about is the fact that your paddle is thicker than others, the only other time I have seen that was in the japanese movie ping pong, as well as paper thin rubber. Are you just not using a sponge? weirds me out....

Hi David,

Thanks for the question. From my experience our bats are a fairly standard thickness. The cheap bats you can get from K-mart can be very thin but these bats are no good for improving your Table Tennis because they cannot generate any spin.

We now have some great PingSkills bats available in our online store. We have the PingSkills Rook which is a great bat for your first real Table Tennis bat. If you are used to using a really thin bat that does not have inverted rubber then this would be a great bat to get you on started with some good equipment. Both Alois and I are using the PingSkills Touch with Xiom Vega Pro which is a really fast combination and only suitable once you have developed great control.

Thanks for the reply,

Actually though, I am currently using the Dhs x4002 paddle and have been doing so since September. I like it a lot.

Hi David,

It is great that you have found a bat that you like. You should definitely stick with it. Now you can put all your focus on improving your skills :)

That sounds like a reasonable set up.  We would recommend the PingSkills Touch as well with Yasaka Pryde or Mark V. Check out our Custom Table Tennis Bats
