Hi,

Our son just started playing table tennis and we wanted to buy a simple robot so he can practice at home regularly. Which of the following robots would be recommended that can be good for first 1-2 years of practice or if there is any other that can be helpful.

https://www.newgy.com/p-189-robo-pong-540.aspx
https://www.newgy.com/p-188-robo-pong-1040.aspx
https://www.megaspin.net/store/default.asp?pid=yt-b-3

Also we found good reviews on super master t288-5 but do can't find any retailer in US

Regards

A problem the newgy has it only has one wheel, so faster balls will always be spinnier. The super master is a two wheel version of the newgy but not as good build quality. I would pick the b3 of those, it's ok quality but cheap price and has all the basic features.

The V981 is much heavier pro build quality like y&t high end models, but has less features (similar features to newgy 540). I think the b3 is pretty good for beginners.

I'm looking at getting a robot, probably either the Newgy 1040 or the Y & T B3. I'm not too worried about one wheel with the Newgy as you can set it to bounce twice thereby reducing the spin on backspin. Also I think parts would be easier to get in case of a breakdown or future changes. It has various oscillation options and head adjustments. I'm familiar with the 2040 and am comfortable with most of it. The thing that I'm not sold on of the 1040 is the head height. The head seems to be fairly high and if the robot is sitting on the table if trying to practice 3rd or 5th ball attack I'm not sure its going to be that realistic. I could always put in on an adjustable chair or stool away from the table but I was looking at using a catch net which would be impossible if the robot was off the table.

The B3 seems to sit lower and perhaps a bit more realistic however I read reviews saying that the adjustments are tricky and I'm not sure how good the oscillation is or if the head can be angled downward to simulate serves. I'm also not sure how robust this model is, though I've heard some others are really good but this one is the entry level. Newgy is generally good quality though ball feeding can be an issue at times.

Wondering if anyone has compared the two?
