Welcome to TableTennisRatings.com

This is an innovative website that lets you find reviews and ratings of table tennis equipment, where we can rely on contributions by the community, rather than the table tennis manufacturing companies, for unbiased information. Normally when looking for information on a particular piece of equipment on other forum websites, you need to use the forum search function. On TableTennisRatings.com, the discussions are located with the equipment pages themselves. And, for the first time on the Internet, you can compare across brands and across different criteria.

To locate an item of equipment, either select a category from the menu, or use one of the search options.

We hope you find this site useful. Please contribute to it if you can, because you will be helping the community.

The software used to develop this website is continually being upgraded. For some of the criteria, a lower rating does not necessarily mean "worse", thus they are now excluded from the overall rating. The criteria that are excluded are the following: speed, sponge hardness, topsheet hardness, high throw angle, spin reversal effect, confusion factor, weight, reglue effect, hardness.

ITTF - North America Championships, Mississauga, Canada, Apr 3 2011

I was fortunate to attend the ITTF - North America Championships in Mississauga, Canada, on April 3.  Here are some of the images I was able to capture:

 
Please help Sandra Paovic

Sandra Paovic

Croatia’s Sandra Paovic was seriously injured in a car accident in Paris on Friday 30th January 2009. She suffered a severe cervical-spinal injury; at the moment Sandra cannot move her legs and can barely move her arms. According to French and German doctors, there is little hope for her full recovery.

She will need nine months of rehabilitation at a special clinic that will cost around 300,000 Euros. Unfortunately Sandra cannot expect financial support from her family; her mother recently suffered a stroke and her father is unemployed.

The European Table Tennis Union has established a special Solidarity Fund.  Here is the article on the ITTF website.

As of July 2010, 100% of the revenue generated through TableTennisRatings.com will be donated to this Solidarity Fund.  You too can help, by ordering any equipment that you normally buy from one of the retailers listed on the Price Comparison page, through the link on that page.

Evolution FX-P A good countertype to Tenergy 05FX. For an intermediate player, it may be even an improved version of T05FX. It is more controllable/forgiving, it is better in short game (this rubber is absolutely wonderful in short game, which is not what you may expect from a soft rubber with strong catapult) and it does not tend to generate too high arc as T05FX often does and opponents like so much.
The element I like most with this rubber is counterlooping: pinpoint precise - simply amazing. And (at least, for an intermediate player) you have enough power.
Blocking is surprisingly good, although it may take some time to get used to (switching from Tenergy / Acuda / Xiom Omega and other rubbers of this type). With serve I have some mixed feelings: spin is OK, but I do not have "enough feel" with serve.
In any case, at least, great value for money.

Temper Tech Off- If anybody is playing with Butterfly Timo Boll Off-, and wants just a slightly faster and a little bit harder version, this is the solution. Performs great with soft rubbers.

Omega IV Elite My favorite BH rubber. Excellent control, good spin. You can do everything with this rubber. A feature I especially like is the ease of counterlooping a long downspin serve. A serious topspin-oriented player may feel too long trajectory, different e.g. from Tenergy/Acuda series - therefore I doubt it could suit for many people as a FH rubber.
But the most amazing feature of this rubber is its extreme durability: I had changed four FH rubbers already while my BH Omega IV Elite is still OK, without any visible deterioration in performance.
A thing one must be careful about is when you bring this from outside during cold winter you must wait until it completely recovers, and it may take considerable time: before that it has hard feeling and no control at all. I think most rubbers have this property, but with Omega IV Elite it is most pronounced.

Narucross EX Soft Excellent rubber. I used it for FH and (earlier) for BH. Feeling is quite similar to Tenergy 05FX, although it is slower. But it has much more control, more forgiving and thus very suitable for a "not top-class" player as FH rubber. Especially I like amazing control in topspins from mid-long distance. Spin is excellent. Blocking is good. It is quite tricky to return serves as it is quite bouncy in short game / chop, but nothing too critical. Serving is good: I feel I could generate more spin than with Acuda S2 but slightly less than with T05FX.
Overall, an interesting solution for a spin/control oriented player.
I would never think of switching to any other rubber if it was more durable. Unfortunately, it is the least durable rubber I had ever played with. I feel that it would be a cheaper solution to use Tenergy taking into account the rubber change rate :-(
