    Affordable bats for a table-tennis club

    Hi,

    I'm starting up a table-tennis club for my University and will need to buy a number of bats for new-comers to the sport to use for practicing. I need to purchase maybe 10-15 bats to start with... they need to be decent but very reasonably priced.

    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Go to eacheng.net or colestt.com and get a shitload of Galaxy 896 or Matrix blades and a pile of XP 2008 rubberz.

    That is the best information you are going to get.
    Setup 1: Blade by Nate: Vortex Spin Machine, FH Evolution MX-K, BH Evolution FX-P
    Setup 2: OSP Virtuoso Plus, FH Rasanter R 48, BH Rasanter R 48

    I agree with Der_Echte

    I import KTL into South Africa - Instinct blade + Pro XP rubbers. This is so good compared to the price and those premads in the retails.

    So, don't let the price fool you, they are really good and perfect for your requirements

    Thanks for your replies,

    Dawei DW2 + Rubbers Combo
    Blade: (Dawei DW2), Blade Handle: (Flared),
    Black Rubber: (Dawei 2008XP), Black Rubber Thickness: (1.8),
    Red Rubber: (Dawei 2008XP), Red Rubber Thickness: (1.8),


    As this is a new club and we need members I don't want to scare people off by having a high joining fee - so I'd like to keep it below £20.I was looking on Colestt.com and this was the cheapest combo. This would sub-total at $280 (£175) for 10 lots of this combo. I've emailed Cole and I'm hoping I can get a delivery quote to the UK of no more than $25 (£15) which would make the total cost per bat $30(£19). This combo comes with a basic bat case too but is the blade okay? It's not one you recommended.

    Your cost for shipping would be the package, and he can fit a lot of bats into one package. I bet you a banana your cost per bat should be around $30 a bat if you are getting a good number of them, $35 a bat if you are getting a half dozen, but Cole will tell you what the deal is.

    I have played with those ALL+, OFF, and OFF blades Cole and eacheng sell, both Dawei and Galaxy stuff. In fact, I used one of those ALL+ blades for 5 months while waiting for my sponsor to release an expensive blade I now use. Those 5 months I played with that ALL+ blade I played my current level, no problem for using that all wood ALL+ or OFF- to OFF blade. They will all work just fine. Ask Cole to seal the blade, he prolly will anyway. He will give you edge tape and either a Dawei 1-Bat full case or a semi-case that covers the bat. Either are fine.

    The Matrix and another Dawei balde (cant remember) still do service at my old Kokean TT club along with 6 each Galaxy 896 blades I bought from Cole and eacheng.net ...

    As for the rubber, XP 2008, I use it on BH on most of my setups and it lasts a month or two longer than my FH rubbers. After I change it out at the 3 month mark or so, my friend at my old club would use it another 6 months.

    Don't worry, XP 2008 will last you long enough, even if it will oxidize some.

    Yeah, that setup should be perfect.

    Why don't you make 2 x member rates - one with bring your own bat, and one with using club bats?

    Thanks again for your replies,

    Cole came back and estimated $35 - 50 to ship airmail first class. That's okay I suppose even at the upper end of that estimate the cost per bat comes out at around £20.70($33) which is acceptable.

    Yep, I'd thought of that - some people may have their own bat and therefore wouldn't need to pay for use of a club bat. Having said that, I am expecting the majority of people not to have their own equipment.

    You did well. You are getting a bat That I (minus one of the rubbers) used at a decent amature level for months.... and all for the price of less than one regular rubber.
