The Stiga Pro Carbon Racket is a premium racket design for the advance to expert players. If you’re a beginner player then I would recommend you to use other cheaper racket because you don’t need this advance racket so early.
I play table tennis occasionally and consider myself an intermediate player. And I believe that the type of racket you use would definitely affect the way you play table tennis. If you’re just learning how to play table tennis, this paddle would not a good choice for you.
The handle of this paddle is comfortable to grip, has also a shock tube. You can use either handshake or penholder style of gripping on this paddle. The head is a bit thicker and the rubber surface stickiness is tacky makes the ball spin faster when made contact.
This paddle produces a less bounce on the ball if you are just holding the racket, so you need to hit the ball bit harder to reflect a hard shot. If you’re a more defensive player this paddle is good for you. With the stickiness of the rubber, you can control and enhance the spin of the ball.
