This the Experts question was answered by Coach Jun Gao. She is the head coach at California Table Tennis in Rosemead, CA. Coach Gao’s response is as follows:
Hi Hendra,As a beginner or intermediate player, I don’t recommend that you use a racket and rubber that is too fast or too hard. This will make it difficult for you to control and make many unnecessary mistakes.If you use Hao 3 with Hurricane rubber, your paddle will be very heavy. Zhang Jike Super CS blade is not a good choice because it is even harder and faster than Hao 3.I would suggest you try the Timo Boll ALC CS blade or Taksim CS blade combined with Dignics 09C for your forehand and Roundell for your backhand. With this combination your paddle will not feel too heavy, but it will have good speed. But again, as a beginner or intermediate player you should not be looking for too fast a blade or paddle because you need to have enough control to use it.Good Luck!Coach Gao
