Hello everyone, since recently I decided to change the style of play and so to pass in penhold because I find it rather nice. The problem is that I feel that this style of racket is not everywhere so I came to seek help in the hope of being able to do my internship this summer with.

So would you have sites, brands, ranges or models to advise me? i odered 302 Chinese Penhold Butterfly paddle
Thanks in advance to those who can help me (and of course those who have tried)!

Hmm... Yet another Butterfly pre-made with Yuki rubber. I suppose it might be OK, but don't believe the bit about "professional quality" - it definitely isn't! :lol: Most Butterfly (and Stiga and Schildkrot and Donic) pre-mades are heavy and slow. The DHS premade from that website would be a far better choice - at least the rubber on it will be decent.


As to how good this web site is... well, if it displays a BLUE faced bat at the top of its recommendations page:


https://www.gosportsreviews.com/best-ping-pong-paddle/

AND recommends a carbon racket as it's "Editor's Choice" (with "S6" rubber, no less), AND talks about "ping pong paddles", let's just say that serious table tennis players (most people who post on this forum) wouldn't take this web site's recommendations very seriously.. :lol: Looks like it was put together by some basement players. All the "buy" links go to Amazon.

Interesting... did you know Xiom makes premades?? (What is "Z Black Power" rubber?)

I have a nagging suspicion that 'LisaRit' is an astroturf account which simply tries to plug in the website in question. If you go to the user profile, it has this exact website associated with the user:

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=15295

Couple it together with the post of "recommend me a paddle, and oh, by the way, I just bought something at this website you never heard of before and it just happens to be mine and full of Amazon referral links".

Hmmm....

search.php?author_id=15295&sr=posts

Recent immigrant, lives in New York? Based on the above posts, she (?) doesn't seem to be shilling that web page, and based on the level of English, I don't think she set it up, either. But it does seem like advice-bait, irresistible to people like myself... :lol:
