What’s so great about this robot? Where do we begin! When you first receive the robot, within minutes you can have it set up and ready to play. We at Paddle Palace can literally do it in less than 60 seconds-- we timed it! There is no assembly or tools required.
The robot is extremely sturdy and reliable, and the motors are very solid, strong, and long-lasting. Unlike some robots on the market, the Paddle Palace V-989 does not jam or hesitate. Even if broken, dirty, or wrong-sized balls get thrown into the mix, they don’t get stuck; the robot keeps on running smoothly. The ball net collection and recycle system works so well that the robot runs forever-- you will tire out before the balls run out. The robot is adjustable for frequency and speed of balls, and also for topspin, underspin, and sidespin. The robot stands on its own wheels, and therefore is very easy to pull back from the table for storage, or when a friend pops in for a quick game. This feature also means you can easily place the robot in different places to simulate a human playing partner hitting from varied positions.
I mentioned the new oscillation option. There are now two basic oscillation choices. With one option you can set the robot to hit only to the two widest points in the angle range. Or with the other option you can set the robot to hit to the inner angles as well as the widest angles. So, for example, when the robot hits to just the widest points of the angle, you can hit alternately forehand, backhand, forehand, backhand. Set for all angles, the balls will land anywhere within the range, so where the balls hit will depend on your settings for frequency, speed, and angle width. With both oscillation options you choose the angle range setting. It can be set for a very wide angle range, like to the far forehand and far backhand corners, or it can be set to a smaller angle range, like more to the middle of the table. Another option, of course, is to turn the oscillation feature off so the robot shoots to just one spot, (any spot of your choice), on the table, and the ball will reliably and accurately land repeatedly on that spot.
The Paddle Palace V-989 Robot is so sturdy and easy to use that we recommend it for schools, clubs, adults, kids, and for the mechanically inept as well as adept. The robot will never tire out and is guaranteed to improve your game!
