In series 1, we will talk about what racquet you should buy, Pre-Assembled Racquet or the Customized Racquet?
Racquets are made up of two distinct material: Blades (with the handle incorporated in it) and Rubbers (affixed on both sides of the blade).
PRE-ASSEMBLED RACQUETS are ready to use racquets. They have the rubber already pasted on the blade. So, if you are a beginner or you play the game just for fun with friends and family, then you should go with these racquets. Because you don't require a highly professional product at the basic level of the game. Plus you wouldn't want to put extra effort into pasting the rubber over the blade.
You can find the pre-assembled racquets online easily. Just make sure the product you buy is recently manufactured and packed because table tennis racquet rubber deteriorates with age and exposure to light even if they have been kept in sealed packets. Buy your racquet from some recognised brand like Stiga to assure the quality.
