When played with hardbats, the game of table tennis is significantly different than when played with the modern "sponge rubber." Since a hardbat can only generate a moderate amount on spin on the ball, much of the deception of the modern sponge-rubber game is removed, and the opponent's control of the return shot is enhanced. The advantage to the server is diminished considerably without the high amounts of spin. The classic hardbat game therefore tends to have longer rallies, and so is considered by many to be more interesting to watch to the average spectator. It is also easier to begin learning since novice players cannot as easily be deceived by tricky spin serves and strange ball bounces off of the table (also due to excessive spin).
Supporters of classic hardbat table tennis generally think that the hardbat game is more fun!
