Has anyone here used the new Newgy 1055 robot? I'm on the verge of buying but interested in any feedback ... specifically interested in the following:

1. Is the new model (1055) noticeably better than the previous models? The 1050 can be had for $200 less on tabletennis11 so I'm wondering if anyone has used both.

2. I've spent a few hours with the Newgy 2040, can I assume the 1055 (or 1050) is about the same with just more flexibility on placement? (I'm not interested in the ball recycling and already have a net)

3. I'll be upgrading from the ipong robot - specifically looking for greater emphasis on footwork and movement patterns - any thoughts from someone that has used both?

I'm a new player - started with the ipong a year ago and looking to step things up - if that matters in the advice you give...

Thanks in advance for any feedback :)

No one has answered your question yet so I'll throw in my advice.

I'd skip any robot with just 1 spin wheel. In the end it is just too limiting. The more speed the more spin. You cannot unpair them. You will never get it to give you a low spin faster ball.

Just an example: It's really frustrating to lose to a pips player who killed your spin, go home to your robot and realize you will never get that ball from the robot you paid good money for.

I used to have one of these robo pongs and upgraded to the butterfly amicus. I mostly use my robot for trouble-shooting situations where I need work. Like right now I'm working on a dead ball short to my forehand followed up by a backhand top spin. Sequences like this I can practice with my multi-wheel programmable robot.

The more expensive Robo-Pong 3050XL looks interesting to me. I like that these are made in the USA and have very good manuals on how to repair them. If given the option I might have gone with this one instead of the Butterfly.
