This upgrade includes a control box and a remote control which turn your Amicus Advance into an Amicus Professional robot. The Amicus advance is fantastic for players who want to go beyond the level of an amateur player and start playing competitively. However if you want to become a professional table tennis player you will need to go beyond the abilities of the Advance robot. You will have to train with more variation and do more types of drills than available in the Advance robot. If you have mastered the drills and different shot types the Advance robot is capable of then it is time that you upgrade to the professional robot through this control box. If you are willing to put in a commitment to table tennis you need to have the right practice equipment.
The biggest change you will notice at first is that there are now 99 memory slots for the robot compared to only 22 available in the advance version. There are 21 drills preprogrammed into the Amicus Professional upgrade. These drills have been specially designed by Butterfly head coach Richard Prause for professional level players. The drills will be tough at first for players used to the Advance robot; they offer more variation and trickier shots. If you are able to master these drills you will end up being a much more competitively successful table tennis player. The professional is meant to train serious committed professionals and easy drills are not enough to be a professional.
The remote control also allows you to focus more on your practice instead of having to move to operate the robot again and again. The remove controller allows you to pause and resume the practice as well as add variation to shot frequency for a more comfortable practice session. You also get the ability to change the frequency and spin of each shot. This is a very empowering feature as you can choose a time and spin which represents your weakness and slowly get rid of all the weaknesses in your game. The Amicus Upgrade to Professional Robot is perfect for the player looking to reach the highest level in Table Tennis.
