Keeping this in view, are Dunlop table tennis bats good?
Dunlop table tennis bats tend to be extremely heavy. Many of them even have random gaps and holes in their handles – some sort of desperate attempt to make them weigh a bit less. They typically cost £15-30, which is very cheap. But still, we wouldn’t suggest buying one if you can help it!

How do I choose a table tennis bat?
To get a custom made bat, you’ll need to buy from a table tennis shop. Look out for ‘All round’ blades, and rubbers with a high control rating. If in doubt give the company a call. Explain your playing style, what bat you’re currently playing with and how you want your game to develop.
Typically, a good intermediate bat will cost between £40-£80. From my experience, a ready-made intermediate bat is usually a little cheaper than a custom-made intermediate bat.
Manufacturer’s estimate the ‘lifetime’ of a rubber to be 50 – 90 playing hours, but don’t panic! Most competitive players change their reverse or long pimple rubber within 12 months. Short pimples or anti spin rubbers last longer.
