GKI Industries manufacture Table Tennis Equipments in India for beginners to professional table tennis players. GKI Industries is a registered company in India and they also manufacture Table Tennis Rubbers and Blades. In this review, we will discuss about premade rackets from GKI.
The quality of GKI equipments for the price is very good for the price and are suitable for all levels of players. You can get a GKI equipment in a range of INR 500 to INR 5500. GKI rackets are quite durable and generally last a long time. These rackets provide a very good learning curve for beginners players and the rackets in higher range allow people to correct their form and techniques.
One of the best things about GKI rackets is that they usually provide a case/cover with their rackets at such pricing which is a remarkable thing. For higher end rackets, they provide a full high quality cover.
GKI has a variety of rackets but we recommend only below rackets based on your skill level.

Color: In above list, all are the rackets are Red and black color rackets except one. GKI Green Hunt is the ONLY racket to have a green and black rubber combination from GKI. If you are looking for a new style and color, then you will probably love GKI Green Hunt.
GKI has a variety of rackets, most of them are TTFI approved (Table Tennis Federation of India) and some of them are ITTF(International Table Tennis Federation) approved. Below is a List of GKI rackets approved by ITTF :-
My personal preference is either GKI Euro V or GKI Euro XX because these two rackets are highly durable and you can do all sort of strokes you want. I would recommend you to change your racket to a new one when you feel the speed of your strokes has improved and you need more power.
If you are playing at a professional level, then definitely you will need to discuss about professional rackets with a state/national level coach as they will customize rubbers and blade based on your playing style.
