u want the hasselblad series or the ranger cam series?

in other words, whats your budget?

you can go to

1) Sin Ten Sports - braddel or bishan MRT...cant remember alr
2) Bras Basah 3rd floor - Vaneco Sports

brands? u want ready made or custom made? ready made...jsut buy any 30-40 dollar one. custom made...u have a whole range of choices

1) wood? prasidha, donic, butterfly, double happiness, joola etc. price range? just for wood alone can be anywhere from 80-300 bucks
2) rubber? i like china rubbers cos they're sticky and give loads of spin. kuang2 feng1 is good. RITC is good also.
3) pimpled rubber? TSP short pimples are great

:)

I play short hand too...but am trying to practise more on the long hand.

currently my short hand bat is erm...butterfly but its a one sided rubber :D

everytime reverse and hit the ball, can't stand the sound ...."PPPPIIIIIIIAAAAAAKKKKKKK"! and i don't have control over the spin LOL

machiam like the ball going to break liao...

anywayz i still old schooled....still using previous championship 5 star balls....coz they are smaller and heavier....makes GREAT smashes....dun like the new enlarged lighter balls......very **** ....travel thru air oso like "hang" there so long LOL

:bsmilie:Yeah... the old kind is 30mm while the newer one or the one FTTA? is using now is 40mm.

I think the idea of bigger ball is to slow down the speed n spin of the ball thats why it like 'hang' in the air!:bsmilie:

As for the bat Long hand or short Butterfly is good enough just got to choose the type of rubber which suits u!

IIRC for short hand u are allowed to stick rubber at the back of the bat (meaning both side rubber) n can be use! Can be use even in tournaments...not sure abt latest ruling!

Still have the bat from my secondary school days. Back then, custom-made bats were pretty expensive with the bulk of the money going to the bat. Bought the Stiga All-Round Classic and their discontinued Syncro rubber which was very thin ;) Good for spin but I am a very defensive player :p

Will be great if can meet fellow CSers who are also into table tennis :D

Haha, that is somewhat similar to the comment I've got from a schoolmate. She said she felt as if playing against a "wall" :p

Unfortunately, can't meet tomorrow for a game (stupid OT). Definitely will like to pick up the bat again :lovegrin:
