Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Question: Hi,
I used to have the Butterfly Derek May-AN paddle and loved it. I stopped playing for a while and would like to get back into playing. My playing style is putting a lot of backspin on my shots to set up for top spin slams. What equipment would you recommend?

Answer:  Hi Tim,

Thank your for question, glad your playing back again.

For your style I would recommend the ff equipments:

Blade – Timo Boll All

Rubbers – Tenergy 05 2.0 (both side)

I recommend this blade and rubber because it has all around effect where in you can have a great effect on your back spin and when ready and in position you can easily generate top spin balls.

I hope this help and goodluck with you table tennis.
