The Killerspin Diamond CQ Premium ping pong paddle is designed for champions. The professional quality blade is made of 7-layer composite wood and carbon fiber for greater precision and an extra touch, perfect for an aggressive playing style. But professionals play with completely different rackets - always a new rubber with a lot of grip and the ideal blades. That does make a big difference, doesn't it? If you're looking to take your table tennis game to the next level, it's important to know what the best players use.
We'll take a look at some of the top rackets used by professional players, as well as some great options for intermediate players. We'll start with German table tennis legend Timo Boll. He usually plays very offensively, now he is very close to the table and he usually shines with his outstanding backhand. He holds the racket in the form of a handshake.
Rackets for Intermediate PlayersThe Yasaka Mark V racket kicks off our first bat for intermediate level players. A staple of the table tennis world, the Yasaka Mark V rubber has helped table tennis players win many titles, including former world number 1, Ma Lin. However, despite its use at the top of the sport, it is still an excellent rubber for players who have not yet reached an advanced level. It's not as fast or as swivel as today's upper tires, which means it offers more control in lower gears. In my opinion, it's the perfect rubber for players looking to dive into personalized equipment.
The lack of a catapult effect makes it very linear to play, which is ideal for players trying to learn advanced shooting, such as loops. With an impressive combination of scores, it's easily one of the best-selling table tennis rackets among intermediate level players. Backed by many professional international table tennis players, it has achieved an astonishing coverage rate in both professional and amateur circles.
Rackets for Professional PlayersAs for the fact that it is sacred for a paddle to break or break, professionals are careful not to be too aggressive with their ping pong paddle because they know that a good one will cost them quite a bit of money. An example is a ping pong paddle that weighs around 163 g per ounce, or 660 grams in total for both sides, which will be good if you're an aggressive player, since it's heavy enough to help generate power and speed in the game, but not too heavy when you lose control.
The material a racket is made of and the way these components fit together affect both its performance ratings and its weight, the two most important considerations for someone looking for new equipment. On each side of the sheet, on top of the sponge, there is a rubber layer that is the surface that will come into contact with the ball (often called the topsheet). As a player who relies on spinning serves and powerful right loops, Rasanter is my personal choice of rubber series. In short, the Killerspin Jet 200 is a well-made shovel with good value for money that offers a good spin on the ping pong ball.
While it may be a bit expensive, the Killerspin Jet 800 is the best ping pong racket offered by this Chicago-based manufacturer and will delight intermediate-level players who play aggressively. We recommend the STIGA table tennis racket cover, it has more space to protect 1 to 2 ping pong paddles and is very durable.
