Excellent ,Very happy with the purchase .
I practice everyday for at least an hour. I have had it for a month now . No complaints. I use 40 mm training balls , easily 100 at one time .
I do use ipong carbon net ball catch.
Do recommend watching online training instructional videos on YouTube .
All in all excellent value for regular practice for beginners/ intermediate plays
After solving some technical issues (see detailed below), the product worked as advertised. I got a good variation of spin, placement and speed, but it does take some time to get used to fiddling with the settings.
Overall, it's a good product for its price. I gave it 4 stars because the product itself is not bad, but the factory settings were off, and it took me a while to get ahold of iPong's support.
I'm writing the troubleshooting steps here in case anyone is having the same problem, so that they can enjoy the product without much hassle.
Thoughts on the product:
- Topspin: I can get a good practice against iPong's topspin, and can set it to feed me low to medium spin balls. These are good for warm up and regular practice; the only con is that I wasn't able to simulate a very heavy topspin for me to block.
- Backspin: The iPong generates a good amount of backspin. In higher settings, it generates much spin, but you can just avoid using those.
- Frequency: You can adjust how short is the interval between balls, and the range from lowest to highest setting covers all scenarios I need.
- Oscillation: If you're used to multiball, it feels awkward because the ball position becomes a bit random -- but then again it can be a good practice since it's hard to anticipate the trajectory.
On delivery and Megaspin.net's customer support:
The product arrived soon after I placed the order, and Megaspin.net's staff was very helpful throughout the process of solving my technical issues. They did a superb job following up with me and with iPong costumer support.
On iPong customer support:
It was hard to contact them, and they didn't return after I left a voice message. Once I managed to get ahold of them, I was able to solve the problem quickly.
About the technical issues and how they were solved:
The problems that I had were:
(1) the lowest backspin setting produced too much spin;
(2) whenever I set both topspin and backspin motors together, I could not get the ball not to fly off the table; and
(3) the highest topspin setting did not have enough speed.
I was able to solve (1) and (2) with the troubleshooting steps below, and partially solve (3).
These steps adjust the voltage settings for top and bottom motors -- which means it changes the amount of spin. They only work for iPong V300 "C" models (the serial number starts with a "C").
1- First plug the AC adapter into the rear of the unit.
2- While the unit is off, enter the adjustment mode by using the frequency button combinations: F-, F+, F-, F+
3- The display may show default values of: 1 5 2 5 (note the flashing numbers of the 2nd and 4th position).
4- The 2nd position is the default setting of the top motor.
5- The 4th position is the default setting of the bottom motor.
6- Press the topspin "-" button 3 times (to reduce the default voltage of the top motor to the lowest value).
7- Press the backspin "-" button 3 times (to reduce the default voltage of the bottom motor to the lowest value).
8- The display should now show 1 2 2 2.
9- Now exit the adjustment mode by pressing using the frequency button combinations: F-, F+, F-, F+
10- Then press the power-on button to begin using the unit. You should notice a change in the ball shooting.
Change steps (6) and (7) accordingly to what best works for you.
Very easy to set up and use. Great way to practice. Only negative is that the motors don't seem to be strong enough to work without stalling if oscillation or frequency are set below 3 or 4, but otherwise works great. Good value for the price.
Great product. Very easy to assemble and use. Great way to practice and improve the game.
Excellent value for the price. Easy to assemble. Only problem noted so far is that the agitator gets jammed when fully loaded with 100 balls even though the capacity is stated to be up to 100 balls. Overall, for the price, this is highly recommended product.
For the last two weeks, I have been using the iPong. It was part of a bundle when I bought the Joola 2500 Table Tennis. My backhand and forehand drive already improved enough to be noticed by my friends at work. I'm practicing for about an hour each night.
Setting up the net and the iPong was very easy. I definitely recommend it to those who want to improve their game and to do exercise (not more boring elliptical!).
I purchased this Ipong v300 bundle and so far has been pretty happy with the purchase. It is easy to setup, the wireless remote is a life saver, and the topspin speed allows you to place the Ipong anywhere on the table to simulate various shots (i.e. place it near the net and set topspin at 1 or 2 to emulate drop shot). I have been using this regularly for few times a week and it has definitely improved my game.
Few things to note:
- The oscillation function works great (make sure to let it oscillate while pausing and adjust so that it will oscillate evenly from left to right)
- Backspin setting is too strong (at least on the machine that I received) to the point that the ball will shoot way over the table on any backspin setting 2 or 3. I found the best setting to be 1 or 2 for backspin and 5 or 6 on topspin
- Initially, when you have maximum or near maximum amount of balls loaded (100 or 90), it tends to jam. I typically pause it and restart it and it works again most of the time. Or, by loading about 70 balls instead of the maximum, it typically works without jamming.
- The motor is a bit noisy, but it does not bother me that much.
Overall, this is a good value and definitely helps to improve my game.
It is a very good Ping Pong Robot, and I play with it almost every day, I am enjoy to play with it. Our families are glad with it. As a beginner, I learn how to compete with my families by using this robot. I recommend any Ping pong lovers buy it!
This is a great performance/value proposition robot. Configuration options are great and wireless remote really makes a difference. I highly recommend this robot.
I received the Feb 2017 model a few days ago and am writing to say that I am very happy with my purchase. My expectations were borne out a competitive desire to improve. I joined a TT club recently, but can only get there 2-3 times a week. I have used and enjoyed expensive robots and hoped that the IPONG would help me work on weaknesses. Its fun and addictive, for sure.
But first, I want to give megaspin 5 stars for their end of the deal. Shipping was prompt and customer service was very helpful in answering a few questions.
Second, I purchased the bundle. No qualms about the balls and the catch net works just fine. It is not a great design and takes more time that I would like to set up. But in my case, I can leave it up for long periods, so no problem. If you have to set up daily, I would consider buying a more expensive net. Also, I had to engineer a solution to allow the balls to feed automatically into a box underneath the catch net. Not a big deal, but creativity is helpful.
On to the IPONG, it seems that the company has worked hard to improve the unit with each release. Assembly was a snap (literally). It holds about 125 balls and in every batch so far, 100% of the balls have been fed. I don't find it to be noisy..yes you can hear it, but it's not what I would consider loud or annoying.
There is some random variation in ball placement, but I think this is mostly a good thing. Certainly hasn't been a problem. I suppose it would be if you were trying to have it hit within 6in of the edge.
I don't think that I have had a single jam yet.
So far, I have have found the topspin to be realistic and comparable to the shots that my training partners hit. Realistic underspin has been more challenging to recreate. I was able to recreate a deeper underspin serve by placing the ipong a foot behind the table (using a cantilevered board) and by propping up the back if the ipong with a 3" box). This feeds balls directly into the table and then over the net.
Was able to add some sidespin by using the little plastic prop to raise the side of the ipong. The prop is very useful, BTW. I use it on just about every setting.
So far, my two biggest suggestions for improvement are: 1) an oscillation setting that allows for a tighter range at the lowest level and 2) the ability to fire a softer, but spinnier ball...its very hard to get the ball to bounce twice (as in a good push or serve).
Patience and experimentation is required and will be rewarded. I will admit that the first hour or two were frustrating as I didn't have a good feel for the settings or how to create a realistic training ball. Everything fell into place soon enough.
