Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Question:  I used to play penhold table tennis racket, Japanese made, one side rubber and back was cork, as a middle school represent in competition in Korea. That was 55 years ago. As retired now, I would like to play again with good racket, cost around $150+/-.
Could you please send me your good recommendation with the selection of excellent penhold type rackets? Thank you.

Answer: Hello Martin,

Here is my suggest to you base on information you provided.  I will recommend the Cypress-S paddle which is not very fast and providing a good soft feel, couple with a Tenergy 05 rubber.

Hope you will find this recommendation suitable for his game.
