Obviously, you'll get what you pay for but this is in the extreme.
Pros 1. Looks fun
Cons 1. Ball is not real ping pong ball, it's some bad plastic material with a rim that ruins play. 2. Paddles (rackets) are plastic, and not wood. They bend when you hit ball 2. Rackets have padding on only one side
You really get what you pay for. Ball does not even bounce when hit with racket.
Would have given it lower score, but it wouldn't be fair because of the price.
I knew that this set was small before I bought it, judging by the picture and the dimensions. I was a bit worried that it was too small to actually use, but that isn't the case. Good for wasting time and maybe for a kid's toy.
