Add a Review for IPONG V300 Bundle - with Catch Net and 100 Balls.
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.
I was so exicited about having a robot for practice because I wanted to upgrade my level. I was only able to use it for the first time this week, which took me about an hour to set up the net and position. I loaded fresh pack of ball bought from ebay and I was soon disappointed in an hour and it made me feel I am never buying a robot again. The main problem was that the robot was not throwing ball consistently - sometimes it was overthrowing the ball outside the table, sometime too close to the net, sometime too slow and sometime even didn't get over the net. I was thinking robot are more consistent. I thought might be something I am doing wrong and tried different position and moving the robot to different position on the table. But, after 2 hours my experience was so much ruined that I put the whole thing back in the box. Haven't looked back on this thing after that. I am definitely returning this along with the net. Thanks

-Excellent value robot.
-Topspin works great.
-Still trying to figure out the optimal distance and angle for backspin.
-Oscillation works great!
-Wireless remote is quite useful and easy to use.
-Great companion robot to practice.
Not so good
-If you don't ensure the slots on the ball feeder are NOT aligned, it does have a tendency to get stuck with multiple balls ending up in the chute!
-I haven't been able to get maximum backspin mode to work yet. It just flies off the table !
-It also does spit out an occasional awry ball but I want to say it's about 1 or 2 in about a 100 balls.
-If I put in 100 balls in the feeder and start it, a few balls definitely drop off from the top if it's tilted on the included stand. The top feeder section could have designed to be a little bigger.
-The motor is quite noisy but I don't know how it compares to other robots so I don't know if that's really a negative or not.
I bought to improve the game, easy to set up, with low speed some times it jams, with higher speed it works well, over all working well, I am happy with the purchase, i recoomend this model it comes with remote easy to operate.
The wireless remote is convenient to adjust the settings in-between the drill.
Good for training against various levels of backspin and topspin.
Only thing is that some of the balls go of the table or drop near to the ipong.
