As top U.S. player, Yiyong Fan, says, "Robo-Pong helps me very much. Every ping-pong player needs your robot to develop high level skills."
Play Ping Pong Anytime, For As Long As You Want!
Have you ever had the urge to play ping pong, but couldn't find an opponent? Are you like the Energizer Bunny and want to keep going long after your opponents give up? Robo-Pong is your answer.
This faithful servant is at your command 24/7. Improve your game at your own pace. Only have a few minutes to play? No problem. Robo-Pong is ready to go at a moment's notice. Warning though—once you start you may not want to stop!
For Family Fun & Entertainment
Want a healthy, fun alternative to TV and video games? Try Robo-Pong. Ping pong is addictive because it engages the mind and body in an inherently fun activity. Basic skills are easy to learn. It's a sport that can be enjoyed by all family members from ages 6 to 106! Unlike injury-producing sports such as football or skateboarding, ping pong is a safe sport with a very low injury rate. It's terrific for developing quick reflexes, hand-eye coordination, and balance. Best of all, you can enjoy an Olympic sport in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
Get Fit While Having Fun!
Get true aerobic conditioning doing what you love to do—playing ping pong! Robo-Pong's non-stop play will keep you swinging and moving for as long as you would normally run or walk—with the same aerobic benefits. Regular use of Robo-Pong will strengthen your cardiovascular system, increase muscular endurance and improve muscle tone. Robo-Pong's sport-specific workouts are better for your game than other aerobic activities like ski machines or stationary bikes. It's visually exciting and never boring or monotonous. So quit skiing without snow or riding to nowhere. Robo-Pong is the perfect workout for ping pong fanatics! Great for kids too.
Great Rehabilitation Tool
Ping pong is perhaps the best sport for improving hand-eye coordination. After a stroke, major surgery, or serious accident, it's imperative to get the body moving again and to reactivate the brain to muscle pathways. Robo-Pong can be adjusted to very low levels at the beginning of your rehab program and then gradually increased to make the workouts more challenging as your condition improves. Ping pong can even be played while seated in a wheelchair and it's a popular activity at rehab centers.

Reviews of Newgy Robo-Pong 540 (3)
Submit a short review about Newgy Robo-Pong 540.
I bought a Newgy 540 four months ago along with the ball bucket extender, Ipong catch net, a gross of 2 star Gambler practice balls, and a Stiga ballcatcher. I am very satisfied with all of these products and recommend them. I did, however, have some problems with the robot which I have now resolved. Perhaps relating my experiences, and the solutions, will be of assistance to others.
The first problem was that the robot was jamming. This turned out to be due to dust and dirt which transferred from balls to the rubber throw wheel. The manual recommends that you wash new practice balls 2+ times. I found that even after doing that, that a yellow placque (all the practice balls are yellow) was accumulating on the throw wheel. So, I cleaned the wheel with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips and that resolved the problem for a time but the unit kept jamming after a few buckets worth of balls. I was also having a problem with balls getting stuck in the bottom and not being fed up the retrieval tube.
Between the two types of problems I was getting frustrated. So, I decided to take the unit apart and clean it REALLY well. Fortuately the 540 easily comes apart into three main pieces the bucket, the clear outer retrieval tube, and the main unit itself. I cleaned it all with rubbing alcohol with special attention to the rubber throw wheel. And I cleaned the balls (2/3 Gambler two-star and 1/3 Newgy two-star) really well.
I also changed how I used it. I tried not filling the entire bucket to the top of the extender basket but only to the level of the original plastic bucket. And, I used only clean balls. I have this all set up in my garage, and dust and dirt on the floor is plentiful and near impossible to keep swept up. But now, any ball that hits the floor is put into a separate basket for later cleaning. Balls that stay on the table or go into the net are reused with the robot.
With this new strategy I have had near zero problems. Rarely a ball will get jammed, but I found that simply pushing it out from behind works and the unit returns to flawless throwing. I also found I can fill the basket to about 2 inches above the original plastic bucket with no problems but if I fill to the top of the extender basket the balls will sometimes (but not always) fail to be pulled up. If this happens a simple shake of the bucket usually relieves the problem.
It is possible that where I live is part of the issue. I live in the Southwest where the humidity is typically below 10%. That may be affecting the rubber throw wheel, causing it to have less traction that if the humidity were higher. I had that problem once with a laser printer which would fail to feed paper correctly in NM but worked flawlessly in a higher humidity location.
So now, having resolved these problems, I am happy with the unit. I have found, however, that the sidespin and underspin settings put WAY too much spin on the ball, far more spin than humans put on the ball. The topspin setting puts mild topspin on the ball which I find perfect for my practice sessions.
Overall, I think the Newgy 540 is a great little robot for developing and improving basic shots. For beginners, all you need is a robot which delivers the ball with the same speed, angle, and trajectory and this robot does that. I suspect I'll move to a robot with more features in a year or two, I've already begun to wish for more speed and programmable drills. Meanwhile, I like to put the robot close to the net and have it hit balls directly at me at maximum speed (70 mph). This helps develop blocks and topspin returns of very hard shots. I alternate between forehand and backhand returns which makes me move and helps with footwork.
1 wheel type robot so it doesnt make no spin ball.
but every kind of spin is available and the combos. and you can adjust the head to match the opponents blade angle.
imo this is all you need for self practice because it is easy to fix if jammed - my problem was only the cable being coiled and then straightening it out which cut the motor. more features maybe more problems.
After 6 years it is great and never broke down even when my kids threw it down...how can you learn spin without one?
the quality of spin/speed is not what you would get from a live opponent but thats why you play at the club.
$ well spent and it doesnt talk back at you:)
The only real concern is the cable connecting the robot and the control box--I think there is a fracture of some degree but if I straighten it out it runs. Also the speed knob on the box has worn out so I sometimes have to reset and twist again.
It does not jam frequently if the bucket is properly connected to the robot. In fact I haven't had a jam for a long time. When I first got it I didn't load all the balls in it so there wasn't enough for it to scoop up.
Cleaning: Haven't used it long enough yet to order the Newgy cleaner but I wash the balls.
No spin balls: none
It's great for a rec player like me and has made me a better player. 540 is basically the same as the more expensive versions just less parts to screw up, thats why I chose it.
