Eastfield Allround Professional table tennis bat has the perfect combination of speed, spin, and control for budding table tennis aspirants. My 9-year-old daughter got the taste of being a champion by playing with this racket. Before the tournament, I asked my daughter, ‘Are you comfortable with this bat?”. She replied, “This bat is so good that I feel it as an extension of my hand”. This one word assured me that I made the right selection for her.

Overview of Eastfield Allround Professional Table Tennis Bat
Eastfield Allround Professional, a Shakehand racket consists of an Eastfield Allwood 5-ply blade and 2.1 mm thick Eastfield A-Soft rubbers. The 5-ply wooden blade and soft rubbers give you high authority on feeling and control which is evident in the ultimate control rating (10/10). Eastfield A-Soft 2.1 mm rubbers can also generate sufficient spin, especially on soft strokes but lack power which is the motto of designing this racket.
This is the area where this bat shines. Today I play a match with this racket and I witness the ultimate authority on control. My consistency has suddenly improved to a higher percentage. This bat is very good close to the table, especially blocking which is a piece of cake.
Soft rubbers are good for the generation of spin at low speeds. These Eastfield 2.1 mm thick soft rubbers can give you a good spin on soft strokes, like on your serves. Though this racket does not act as a great additive for topspin, it doesn’t matter much at the beginner’s level.
This Eastfield Allround Professional table tennis bat is not good for speed. This bat is built on the concept of low speed with supreme control. This is very beneficial for a beginner to give his/her effort which eventually helps in building techniques.
My little daughter has been playing with this bat for the last 03 months but the bat almost retains its originality. Rubbers are very much live till now. Another great thing about this bat is the precision of finishing. Today I inspect this racket very closely. Everything seems to be very caring, the pasting of rubbers, and the fixing of the side tape have been handled very neatly.
This racket has a flared handle with an enlarged portion at the end. This grip is so nice and so comfortable that yan can feel the easiness of handling this racket.
