Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Newgy Robo-Pong 2040 Review

Review by Marco Borrillo (published with permission):

I spent a lot of time 2 years ago with Chetan and a Newgy 2040.  It did a lot good stuff and both Chetan and I really liked it.  It was light and cheap (US$600, though they went up in price now to $700) and easy to set up and easy to use.  Just attach the robot to the table (it slides on instantly, nothing to tighten), Velcro 2 straps to the table's net, and plug it in.  Done. 

The Newgy made a good amount of spin even on short balls.  The head height of the Newgy was fairly low to the table, so serves seemed "real".  The head was able to be adjusted up or down easily, so you can get a "line drive" or a "looping topspin."  You can rotate the head INSTANTLY  to produce ANY spin you want 360 degrees around the head. 

Ball frequency was excellent, with almost 2 full seconds of delay at the lowest setting, and the fastest setting going much faster than most humans can handle. 

Speed and spin was excellent at highest power setting.  It was very adequate at the lower slower settings.  Put the Newgy at the slowest speed setting and 100% sidespin, hold your paddle perpendicular to the incoming ball, and you'll see the ball jump violently to the left or right (depending on the spin) and easily go 3-4 feet off the table to the side.  That's a lot of spin, even for a slow setting. 

The bad thing about the Newgy is that it can't make a dead ball.  So everything is always lots of spin.  And of course it's not programmable.  Can only do 1 type of a ball at a time. 

However, all things considered, dollar for dollar, the Newgy 2040 is the best robot on the market today. For only $700 brand new (and you can find them used very easily for $400 or less) this is a robot that you can definitely do a lot with.

So sure there are better robots, and sure there are robots with more capability. But dollar for dollar, all things considered such as ease of use, quickness of setup and take down, and # of different types of balls it makes (nearly everything, except no spin or super spin slow...) this robot is great.

If I had limited funds this would be a no-brainer. You can't go wrong with the Newgy.
