Try some softer rubber until you get more strenght in your strokes with these blades. Yasaka rakza soft 7 2.0 mm will be OK for start.

Hi Doanski!

For a beginner, control is essential. That means less speed. A setup for you need not cost more than EUR 50. A blade like Donic Appelgren Allplay is good. Use rubbers with less than 2.0 mm sponge, for example Friendship 729 Fx Super with 1.5 to 1.8 mm sponge thickness. Friendship gives you great value for little money.
Regards, 
Stefan B.
Best regards,
Stefan Bjorklund

What I find when beginners try to use fast, sticky, or too thick of rubbers is that everything goes long.  This is mostly because all the topspin sinks in and makes the ball pop out long.

The typical beginner will try to compensate by becoming tentative, touching it lighter and farther over the top which actually makes matters worse.  Absent a coach to tell them they have to hit harder to force the ball down, they will not improve.  So I recommend slower equipment that forces players to use their body in the stroke.

If someone has a good coach though and that coach can guide them through that, then I think you'd be ok getting a more permanent setup.

I agree with Cole. However, trying to find a good coach is oftentimes difficult depending on where one plays. Robots do help with learning the basic strokes, but it doesn't provide one with feedback. I've seen my share of beginners whose strokes were a shambles due to drilling with a robot without coaching.   Many thought that as long as they got the ball back, that they were doing good. Attempting to correct strokes like that, even with a good coach, is very difficult. If you can't find a good coach, at least try to find a reliable practice partner who has a reasonable knowledge of the game.
