Hi,

I've been asked to recommend a moderately priced table tennis robot for home use.  No advanced features are needed, just quality spin production.  No robot oscillation to move the ball around the table is needed.

Any recommendations?

Thanks.

Thanks for the comment.  The interest is in good, high quality spin generation from the robot, with an effort to not pay for the many sophisticated features that the product line now offers.  A reasonable amount of money is available to purchase a robot that produces good quality shots in a straightforward, non-oscillation format.

The prevailing thought is to attempt to minimize purchasing features the buyer does not have an interest in.

Thanks again.

I wonder about the paddle palace table top pro (about 450 USD). Does it have good spin? It does oscillate. I do not think any robot below that price point can give adequate spin.

Thank you for the comment.  A friend of mine who fairly recently researched this topic and concluded the Paddle Palace in this price range seemed to be the best option.  The question about the "good spin" is the correct question to be answered.

Thanks again.

If you don't mind shopping oversea and like a little of DIY when the opportunity presents itself, you may want to check out pongfox.  You would get a high-end robots for ~450 usd

IPong has good spin for intermediate players (with two wheels, it can generate realistic backspin too) but must be fed manually. That makes it useless unless there is someone you can exploit or hire.

Have you ever considered building one? A DIY table tennis robot is not hard to be built, I did myself one and the topspin is huge to deal with.
