The 7 Best GKI Table Tennis Rackets in 2024

The article “Best GKI Table Tennis Racket” reminds me of the very early days of my life. I can still remember the first table tennis racket that I ordered online. That was GKI Kung Fu Dx. Being a low-priced bat, I found it a good performer. And Kung Fu DX did not disappoint me at all. My next bat was also from GKI, which was Offensive XX.

The good thing about GKI rackets is that they are not too hard or too soft. They offer nice control, which is the main focus of a beginner. At the same time, these rackets help you produce a decent spin. Some rackets are also good for intermediate players.

But why are they so popular in India? Yes, they are very budget-friendly. They offer great value for money.

Let’s see the top 7 GKI table tennis bats considering both aspects, performance, and price.

Euro XX9999999.8
Euro V9493959.6
Offensive XX9292969.4
Kung Fu DX9191979.3
Kung Fu9191979.1
Green Hunt9290969.1

Here I am giving a very brief idea for selecting a racket. The concept of the selection is based on the fundamentals, i.e. control is the dominant factor for beginners, and for next-level offensive players, speed matters a lot. 

First, check the racket rating on the three attributes, i.e., speed, spin, and control. If you are a beginner, concentrate more on control, and for intermediate players, it should be according to their preference. Offensive players need speed while defenders rely on control.

  1.  As hard rubbers are good for speed, beginners should look for soft rubbers.
  2. The thickness of rubber varies from 1.0 mm to 2.3 mm. Thicker rubber means more speed and spin and thin rubbers are good for control. For a beginner, a medium-thick rubber is good (1.5 mm – 1.9 mm).
  3. The number of veneers of wood in the blade is also an important factor in the selection of a table tennis bat. A 7-ply blade gives you more speed than a 3-ply blade.
  4. Out of the three grips, flared, straight, and anatomic, the flared grip is the most popular and convenient for a beginner.

The following are the 7 best GKI tt bats in India.

GKI Euro V, the best table tennis bat under 2000 in India
  • Euro All-wood ply
  • Euro V tensor rubber
  • Speed: 94
  • Spin: 93
  • Control: 95

GKI Euro V is a good choice for intermediate players who want to build their game on power-looping. Euro V is one level higher than GKI’s 1000 price segment rackets. It is better in speed and spin which makes it easier for topspin play.

The racket is made with specially designed Euro ply and Euro V rubbers. The Euro V rubber is incorporated with micropores that enhance the elasticity of this rubber. Moreover, Euro v is a tensor rubber, which means the top sheet is stretched before gluing on the sponge during the manufacturing process. Due to this tensor top sheet and elastic sponge, after impact, the ball bounces more and springs off with a higher trajectory. This nature of Euro V rubber is perfect for looping.

GKI Euro V comes with an ergonomically designed handle for better grip. The handle is designed in such a way that it minimizes the vibration at the time of impact which effectively increases the control of your strokes.

As the name suggests, GKI Offensive XX is designed mainly for offensive players. This racket is good for power-hitting with decent speed and spin. GKI Offensive XX consists of a 3-ply blade and medium-thick rubbers. There is no information available about the thickness of rubber. But when I had removed the side tape of the bat, I found nearly 2.0 mm thick rubber with an orange-colored sponge.

The rubber feels soft which helps you for good control over your strokes. The Offensive XX has a nice flared handle. This ergonomic grip gives you comfort in delivering power shots with ease.

This racket feels lightweight (Around 150 grams). The good thing is that this bat is approved by TTFI (Table Tennis Federation of India). That means you are eligible to play with this racket in any type of competition in India, it may be a state-level or national-level tournament.
