The Stiga Titan is one of many table tennis rackets made by Swedish company Stiga – one of the world’s leading table tennis brands. They have a popular range of five premade rackets that are also ITTF approved, which means they are able to be used in competitions.
At the moment, the Stiga Titan is sold on Amazon.com for $26.00. This places it on the cheaper side of premade rackets. Stiga created this bat for novice players who want to start getting serious about their game. It is a well-rounded bat with mediocre performance.
The Stiga Titan is the fourth fastest premade racket by Stiga with the Supreme, Evolution and Pro Carbon in front of it.
The Stiga Titan comes with 2mm “Stiga Stream” ITTF approved inverted rubbers coupled with a 5-ply lightweight blade. As this racket is aimed at novice players it focuses more on control and technique, rather than power.
One of the more important things in table tennis is the ability to read incoming spins and then being able to counter it according to the situation. The increased grip on the Stiga Titan allows better control of spins and is good for building the correct foundation.
The sponge on this racket is really the only downside we can see. But as it is designed for beginners and focuses on speed and spin we don’t see intermediate or expert players buying it. If smashing is a big part of your game, this might not be the racket for you.
Overall, the Stiga Titan is a decent starting racket and won’t set you back that much in cost. It would be a solid choice if not for the sponge on it. Being a beginner racket you can’t expect much from it. If you are thinking of getting serious with table tennis maybe going for the Stiga Titan isn’t a great choice as you will need a replacement racket in no time.
The Stiga Titan is a decent novice racket that will help you improve on your game. The performance rating of the racket is not the greatest but what can you expect for the price you are paying. Don’t expect to keep this racket that long though. We recommend investing a bit more for a solid beginner racket.
Instead, we recommend you invest a bit more for the Palio Expert 2. It is our favorite beginner racket and will provide you more playing time as you advance while not having to swap rackets.
