The JOOLA USA iPong Topspin Training Robot sharpens your table tennis skills without need for a training partner. It is a good machine for practice and has a wired remote control that adjusts power and spin on the ball. It comes with underspin, topspin, or heavy topspin settings and you can increase or decrease the frequency of balls per minute as you improve. This robot has 110 balls capacity with an adjustable frequency from 12 to 70 balls per minute. The iPong Robot is consistent and random at serving balls and is great for beginners. It works well and recommended for improving game especially for new players. It is fun and good for single players.

However, there are complaints of how the machine breaks and malfunctions. It isn't safe for kids and some complain of poor quality and inefficiency.

Overall, the JOOLA USA iPong Topspin Training Robot is an affordable, portable table tennis practice partner that plays with you tirelessly. It's more like a live opponent than a ball feeder. The iPong assembles in seconds with only three essential pieces to put together--no tools or equipment necessary.
