Reviews of IPONG Trainer Motion w/80 balls, Pickup Net and Catch Net (27)
Love this thing. Being able to practice without someone around helps a lot. The motion adds to the training since it can come out across the table instead of only in one spot. The bundle of the back net and pickup net is great. Wish the back net was higher long the sides and long enough to reach the net so balls would not roll off. All the settings of the Trainer Motion allows you to change it up and not practice the same moves all the time. Worth the money for a great beginner/intermediate ping pong machine.
Only complaints are the number of balls it holds per time and the setup on the table. There is no “middle” mark to position it long the center of the table so it can rotate without shooting off the table. Takes several balls to setup it every time you move it on/off the table to practice/play. Not a deal breaker, but annoying.
The IPong Trainer Motion is a great training tool. I upgraded my paddle at the same time I bought the IPong and was having difficulty getting used to new paddle. The IPong Trainer Motion solved that after a 1000 or so practice balls. You can adjust direction, spin, speed so this robot should progress with you as you progress.
This product is very useful and helps me improve my skills. Some advice I would give is to make sure to use the net that comes with so it is is easier to pick up the balls. This machine is for the experienced but maybe not the pro table tennis player.
Bought with the Joola table as a bundled purchase.
Delivered on time. Package was good except one of the supplied balls was damaged in the package and balls have a powder coat and make marks in the table and the paddle. I believe it goes away after sometime.
Assembly was very straightforward and worked fine from the start. Just followed the instructions and made sure the holes are not aligned inside before dropping the balls into the holder.
The lower frequency is very reasonable for a beginner level and have to update to higher frequency for an intermediate level.
I'm happy to see this robot helps my younger son getting good practice and help him learning the game faster.
Pros: the price is much cheaper compared to other robots, easy to setup with remote controller, good for learning the game.
Easy installation and setup.
The net and the ball collector are great quality.
Cons: Have to make sure the ball feeder do not align to the hole of main body before dropping the balls. First few couple of balls wont follow the settings.
Overall the IPONG robot is worth the price. Highly recommended if you want to learn and practice the game with out the partner.
Easy to assemble. We had fun immediately after opening it. Great product. First couple days and we already feel we are getting better at table tennis. Great purchase!
Product received as described. Shipping was fast. Assembling was easy. What I like it most so far is that it is light weight and portable so I can bring it with me to my pingpong club sometimes. It has not had any problem so far. As an amateur, this robot has all the functionalities I need but not expensive. Highly recommend it.
I purchased this because it had better reviews then the ipong 300. Can't beat getting a free catch net. First motor was defective and they replaced it with immediately when I told them. Great practice machine, great for figuring out the sweet spot on the paddle. You just have to figure out placement based on top spin or bottom spin.
This was my first ball throwing robot purchase of any kind and wow was I surprised!!!
- Assembly was a snap. Took me 5 mins to get this going
- Ease of use also makes this an excellent buy. The remote allows the user to choose between Frequency of ball delivery, oscillation, topspin and backspin
- The remote is an excellent utility and helps with the ease of use.
- The included accessories in the bundle were god sent. The catch all net was easy to hook up to the table and even easier to disassemble when needed and the ball picker indeed is a blessing for old backs like mine.
- The tilt stand adds a bit of variation to the functioning of the robot allowing for some sharpened skills
Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase. I have had it for 4 months now and my skill set has improved and the fact that I do not have to wait around for friends or family to show up for a game makes this extremely convenient. The balls have not jammed on me yet. I haven't had to clean much either.
So folks, in my honest opinion...this is a great buy for the asking price. Another excellent tool towards your daily quest to stay active and have fun at the same time.
Product is great. It comes with the training robot, 80 balls and a pickup net. (I purchased the bundle with the additional Catch net, which is helpful as this reduces the number of balls that fall onto the ground). The trainer comes with a handy wireless remote that allows changing settings on the fly (frequency, oscillation, topspin and backspin). I played table tennis many years ago and never had a strong forehand stroke. So far, with daily practice, this trainer has helped me improved my stroke consistency, especially my weaker forehand. I look forward to practicing against the trainer using the more advanced settings (oscillation and spins) to improve myself further.
My new ipong trainer motion was feeding balls too quickly, (shooting a bit over 40 balls per minute at the lowest setting) so I asked Ipong's customer service. After providing them a minute video of the trainer and some time, they said that was normal and supposed to be that quick, however on their video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6kcjvHFwPg, in the description under "show more" it clearly says 12 balls to 70 balls per minute (the video description is the same as on Ipong). The half star rating isn't because I received a defective product, but rather because they told me my defective product was working normally. Being unhappy with being lied to and not having my issue addressed (mainly that I had to find evidence that the machine was too fast rather than them admitting it was a defective item). This is not a product I would recommend, solely from the customer service experience. Though the customer service rep was polite and pleasant, she had to ask the 'inventor' whether it was working properly or not. The fact that the inventor said 40-70 balls per minute was normal while their own video had claimed it being 12-70 balls per minute left a rather bad taste. If I had not provided the information that they provided, I would have been stuck with a defective product. I'm not sure why they do not know what their machine is supposed to do, or if they just wanted me to deal with it (which would suck because I got it with the intention of practicing forehand loops and against backspin,and 40 balls per minute is too quick to be continuously hitting with such a bigger stroke as a learning player).I'm sure if you received a working one, everything would be great, but I sincerely hope anyone who received any problems with their ipong trainer do not have to go through their customer support.
Megaspin reply: We apologize for this. I saw that the robot was returned and you have been refunded in full. I thank you for bringing this to our attention. We had the wrong data from IPONG and our website has been corrected to read 30-70 balls per minute (this is the correct range). We are waiting for IPONG to update their YouTube video description. We will make sure our team compensates you with a discount on an alternative robot for the experience you had.
My first order was defective and Megaspin helped me get a replacement from Joola. The replacement works fine so far.
Pros: the price is much cheaper compared to other robots, easy to setup with remote controller, good for recreation players
Cons: the agitator and the rotating part to feed the ball is made of plastic which is not sturdy. This is the defective part of my first order. The IPONG robot can sometimes get jammed when the hole in the ball feeder aligns to the hole of main body,need manually move the spin part, this seems to be a design flaw. Also the speed and spin sometimes not consistent even with the same settling.
Overall the IPONG robot is worth the price. still recommended.
I have had the iPong Trainer Motion for about two week. It was very easy to assemble and get started. My daughter and I use it to warm up before we play a few games and it is definitely improving our games. It is particularly fun to have the person who is not hitting, using the remote to change the settings suddenly on the hitter. It seems to lead to a lot of laughing as the hitter tries to keep up.
I would like to see iPong update their website with current information on all of the available models so that it is easier to make a buying decision and also provide information what the recommended settings are for practicing different shots at different performance levels.
I ordered this on 2-5-19 as an early birthday present for my son and received it today. Fast shipping even with this horrible weather. This is perfect for him and he enjoys it so much. He played for 2 1/2 hours straight - between the jams. Which is why I rated it a 4/5 is because:
1. The pickup net isn’t as convenient and easy to use as they show - maybe I’m just slow too.
2. Though the setup was sooo easy, the first time I turned it on it was super loud and the balls were jammed instantly. After about 5 mins of scooping out the balls and restarting it back up, it got jammed again. After the 3rd time, it finally worked. It like vomited our 3 balls then worked. It’s jammed up another 3 times in the 2 1/2 hours. So that’s a huge bummer - but maybe with more time we can figure out how to eliminate the jamming defect.
Overal - still happy with the purchase, just a bit disappointing and frustrating that it jams so often. I still recommend it for the overall price and features of it. Just be patient I suppose.
Megaspin edit: We will get in touch with the customer to resolve the jamming issue.
The robot arrived on time. It is as good as other robots i have played with but for a cheaper price. Assembly was a 10min job and there was no ball jam. My kids loved it.
Easy to assemble and Use. It can help you with the basic drills and get you to be consistent. The oscillation is something I really like as it is randomized and makes you move and improves footwork. Does a lot more for the price.
I'm really scratching my head and wondering what a $1000 robot could offer that this one does not...
The function of it is completely customizable... speed, frequency, spin customization, oscillation... you can go from a totally tame pop fly ball every couple of seconds to absolute freaking chaos. I am a table tennis amateur. Bought a table a month ago along with this machine. I needed this as my wife and kids are not the best practice partners. A friend came over when I first got the table, and again after me practicing with this for a week. What a difference. My skills certainly improved.
Having only had it a few weeks, it's hard to judge longevity, but based on long term reviews of the V300, and the fact that this is essentially the same thing but with improved components, I'm feeling pretty confident... and if it breaks? it's so inexpensive I'll just buy another! I love this thing!
I purchased IPONG trainer motion on Dec 31, 2018. The delivery is fast. Extremely easy to assemble. But keep in mind if you would like to obtain a limited factory warranty, you will need to register it within 10 days of your purchase. However, today Jan 9 when I tried to register it on their official website ipong.net, I could not find the option to register this model. The latest model on their website is IPONG V300. Not sure if this is an official model on the current market.
Megaspin reply: This is a new model and we are the first to carry it. We will ask IPONG to adjust their website!
Customer reply: After contacting the customer service from both Megaspin and IPONG, the issue during the registration has been perfectly address. I would like to adjust my review to 5-star. Thanks.
Fantastic product. Easy to assemble and setup. Very good trainer. All members of my famiy like it. Good customer support and fast shipping Thanks!
If you have kids this thing is a life-saver....cuz they are gonna want to (and be able to) play longer than you can. When you need to tap out, just plug in your "pong-bot!" Employ the stand and use the remote to vary the controls & put them through the paces! Then when they pass out from exhaustion, save your back by scooping up the balls with your net before taking a turn to build up your endurance by hitting 80 balls. Hands down a 100% success -- the only thing that would make it better would be if this thing could procreate its own balls!
