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 540 / Robo-Pong 540 review:

Your first step to seeing how Table Tennis Robot practice can revolutionize your game. This model is ideal for recreational players and the budget-minded. Lower speed and frequency ranges and static delivery accommodate untrained strokes. Set on top of table and twist base to desired trajectory. Improved bucket design ensures reliable ball feed.

 Newgy Robo-Pong 540 Review

Review:

The 540 model is virtually identical to the 1040/2040, apart from the ball container, recycling net and no oscillation control. The robots and controls are virtually the same, so the review of the Newgy 2040 very much applies to the 540 as well.

The controller allows you to adjust the frequency and the speed of the ball... the more speed the more spin.

The head can be tilted, allowing you to get different angles at which the ball are projected. By rotating the head, you can achieve the different spins (ie topspin, sidespin (both) and backspin).

The fact that you can place the unit anywhere, either on any position on the table, or even a position next to the table, actually offers you a lot of flexibility that fixed units don't have. For example you can place the unit close to the net to give faster balls, or well behind the table for long range balls. People commonly put the unit onto to a chair with height adjustment behind the table, offering even more options and balls. It's really up to you and your imagination on how you can use this unit.

It is a simple robot, but very easy to setup and use and has proven to be quite reliable. It does have some limitations, but that's to be expected with the cheap pricetag, but also it's flexibility as mentioned above, that many people may not have considered. The unit is highly portable... you simple put it anywhere, plug it in, and away you go!

It makes a very handy and cheap training tool for practicing certain strokes or drills.

A seperate catching net can be purchased from some retailers, which help collect the balls. Otherwise one of those pipes that pick up the balls would come in very handy.
