This latest revision works with both poly balls (40+) and celluloid 40mm balls.

Improved: The new model has 22 memory spaces instead of 10, and numbers 1-10 are pre-saved exercises.

Ideal partner for those who want to train complex play sequences.

The Amicus table tennis robot from Butterfly are designed for a wide range of game experience and training. Amicus models are suitable for both amateur and professionals players.

For the ex-German national coach and current head coach of the Werner Schlager Academy, Richard Prause, can work with robot, for those who want to learn faster, be a useful addition for the training everyday:

"Working with a robot can be a means of achieving greater success for many players. The increased amount of ball contacts and exercises leads to a greater level of precision, footwork and technique."

FAQ: Are there any visual cues to indicate current spin?

Depending on which Amicus model you have there will be a combination of lights and labeled knob to set up patterns. All models can be programmed to do a mixture of spins and placements of pitches. Amicus Pro and Advance are the only models that can save programmed patterns.

FAQ: Which Amicus model is most realistic?

All models have the same realistic ball flight and bounce based on the concept of having multi shooting wheels. Amicus Pro however has an Automatic Frequency Control feature which changes time intervals based on the previously pitched ball.

FAQ: Can Amicus switch spin in the same practice pattern?

All amicus models can switch spin in a practice pattern.

FAQ: Can Amicus throw the ball to bounce on each side of the table (to simulate a table tennis service)? And can it do it with backspin or sidespin?

Yes, it can simulate a serve with different types of spin and even no spin.

FAQ: Does the robot come with a ball recycling net (aka catch net)?

Yes, it does.

Arrived in great shape. Has to be adjusted to feed the poly balls but feeds celluloid fine. Instructions could be better. Best way to get it set? Get a lot of balls, set up some barriers and let it throw shots while you experiment with arc and spin.

Review by wlambert (Verified Customer) for Butterfly Amicus Advance on May 28, 2015
I'm a novice but splurged on this training machine based on extensive internet search for reviews. How can one not improve with steady, repeatable balls coming at you? I cannot comment on spin characteristics as compared to actual play, but it is obvious the machine can produce incredible spins in all planes. The design and construction seem solid and well thought out, though the programing takes a bit of head scratching - ultimately doable, but not intuitive. I'm very, very pleased overall.
