The new and improved Palio Master 2 is the perfect bat for players that are looking to take their game to the next level and need a bat that will give them a high level of spin and power without losing control. It is recommended to players that have mastered the basic strokes and are now looking to add power, learn more advanced strokes and test their skills in competitions. The ITTF approved Palio CJ8000 rubbers are well known for their ability to generate spin while maintaining a good level of control and feeling due to their softer sponge. The tacky rubbers will help you produce topspin, backspin and sidespin with ease. The all wood Palio x ETT Master 2 blade has been completely redesigned to improve quality and feeling. It features a flared handled that is very comfortable to hold and it provides the perfect combination between power and control. The Palio Master 2 is a terrific allround table tennis bat. A free Palio bat case is also included to help you protect the bat and keep the rubbers clean.

Overall the racket has a nice crisp response and pretty good speed. It's a little bit faster than the average racket and has good control. The feedback (feel) from the blade is good and I haven't noticed any dead spots when striking the ball.
The interesting thing about this racket is that the rubbers are designed to peel off easily so that they can be replaced. (Almost all premade rackets have non-removable rubber) A lot of Amazon customers seem to be complaining about the rubbers coming loose. ITS SUPPOSED TO PEEL OFF EASILY! If it's a little loose on the edge just glue it. I plan to eventually peel off the forehand rubber and replace it with something more aggressive when I get better at looping.
The only complaint I have is that the wood finish on the handle is a little rough. Some people like that, but I prefer a smoother grip.
I have played ping pong for years, but only recreational until about 6 months ago. I have used plenty of cheap colorful paddles that suited my leisurely play style up until then. I decided to get more serious and began my search for a mid-level non-custom paddle to complement my power and spin, without sacrificing precision. I looked at Killerspin JET paddles, STIGA Pro, and STIGA Evolution paddles. After trying the STIGA Pro Carbon, I knew that I wanted to have a bit more weight. That’s when I came across Palio’s paddles. It was a random find, to be honest, and the descriptions for their paddles were….non-existent? I considered both the Master 2 and Legend 2. Not having much to go on, I took a chance on the Palio Master 2 and figured it would be worth the price to see what it could do.
Upon receiving the paddle, I noticed that it was considerably heavier than anything I had tested. It is a few ounces heavier than the Pro Carbon. I also realized that the rubbers were unlike anything I had played with before. They were very tacky, and the foam was thicker than any I had played with before. The change was so drastic that it was a good few days of hitting balls everywhere but on the table before I had dialed my accuracy in. The heavy weight of the paddle adds power that you have to get used to and the grip feels like it just doesn’t want to let go off the ball! However, it was only a few weeks before I was hitting shots harder and faster than any I had in the past. The rubber is high quality and needs to be kept clean (a first for me) but it is absolutely worth the TLC. The front and rear rubbers play identically, so you won’t have to worry about adapting your shot style to each side.
I would absolutely recommend this paddle to anyone that enjoys hitting heavy shots, whether spin or power. The weight becomes very comfortable in the hand over time, and it now feels like an extension of my arm instead of a nimble blade in the hand. That being said, it took time and commitment to grow accustom to the weight and grip from this paddle. I give it 3/5 stars “for beginners” for that reason alone. It feels very durable and gives of a very unique/satisfying “smack” sound on perfect shots. I have used the paddle 2-3 times a week for a few months and there has been no loss of durability (you do have to clean the rubbers though). I very much enjoy playing with this paddle, and would recommend to anyone looking to/playing at the intermediate level who likes a bit of weight in their swing.
If you have been playing since you were a child, you will not regret this purchase.
Equally impressive, is the customer service of TT Trading Company US. Before even receiving the racket, an email arrived from one of the racket's creators. In addition to a thank you for purchase, it included an invitation to contact him with any questions or issues, as well as helpful tips for racket care and use. I sent multiple questions that were responded to immediately. One of them was about the company's Legend 2 racket, which I was interested in for myself. It was out of stock (sold out, but available again last I checked), and the company got one to me immediately.
The Legend 2 is awesome. It feels like powerful returns and opponent-confounding spins naturally fly off the racket. It's definitely taken my offensive game to the next level. These are fantastic products from a first-rate company that truly understands customer satisfaction and couldn't be more responsive or easier to deal with. Enjoy!

To conclude, offensive players should be happy with this bat, but defensive players should look elsewhere.
I did a bit of reading on various sites in order to get a good bat for around £30 - £40. This bat was mentioned frequently and can say it was a good choice.
