Can feel too powerful if you're not used to playing with 2.0 mm sponge.
Lightweight for its speed -- still heavier than most premade bats at 165grams.
Medium Rubber - Forgiving for beginners, but the maximum spin and speed is limited once you become good at the sport.
The rubber can be replaced though.
- Beginners who can do fh/bh drives
- Recreational players with tennis background.
- Anyone who doesn't want to invest in a custom setup
- Absolute beginners (Might be a bit too fast. Get Stiga Titan/Evolution for slower setup).
- Choppers (Why would you be looking for an offensive paddle?)
- If you already know how to loop, this is too beginner-oriented for you. Get a custom setup
The blade is a little heavier than most premade bats. However, this blade is considerably lighter when compared to other offensive blades.
I would say that the weight of this bat is just right for people who are starting to develop offensive playstyle. The blade can be pretty fast despite its light weight and it doesn't vibrate too much.
The rubber is Stiga S5, which is a beginner rubber with very little speed and spin. (Very good control)
The topsheet is not very grippy and so while table tennis basics can be performed relatively well, the rubber doesn't quite allow you to do advanced strokes. The rubber doesn't really react to spin and so it is good at blocking/driving/flat hitting.
The rubber does lose its tackiness quickly. Since it comes with a not-so-tacky rubber, it will be very hard to generate spin after some period of playing. I've been using this paddle for two months. I play in a college club 4 hours a week + a few more hours with a friend. Right now it's time I change the rubber. I will keep the blade though, it is pretty good.
If you are a complete beginner(You can't do forehand drive & backhand top spins comfortably), consider Stiga Titan or Stiga Evolution. Most other premade bat comes with 1.5-1.7 mm. sponge thickness. This paddle comes with 2.0 mm thickness and it is faster than your average paddle! If you play a lot you probably will be fine though.
If you are not used to playing with thick sponges, it will take some time to adjust. Once you are familiar with it, this paddle is pretty good for its price. You can upgrade the rubber (or purchase a custom racket) when you are better at offensive shots and you start to feel that this paddle is too slow(At first, this paddle was too fast for me but when your skill improves you will feel that it is very easy to control.)
If you are a beginner who can already do spin-intensive shots(i.e. loop) or an intermediate player, don't get a pre-assembled bat. The Stiga S5 rubber is insanely good at flat hitting/smashing but it is designed for beginners.
Comments on each shot:
Smash/Flat hit: This paddle is insanely good. The rubber is not sensitive to incoming spin.
You can smash a chop/lob comfortably since the non-grippy top-sheet is not very reactive to the opponent's spin.
Drive: The paddle is good at driving. The spin is ok.
Loop: You can loop strongly with proper technique and a lot of energy. You should change the rubber to something better if you want to play the looping game.
Push: The paddle can push okay. The S5 rubber offers a lot of control, but it will be hard to load up backspin on long pushes.
Lob/fish: The speed of the blade allows you to lob comfortably without putting in a lot of effort.
Block: The lightweight blade allows you to quickly block. The rubber offers a lot of control. Pretty good at blocking for an offensive blade.
Serve: The rubber can do most serves comfortably, especially long serves. Some spinny short serves(Ghost serve, backspin reverse pendulum) is still hard to perform with the non-tacky top sheet.
Chop: As typical of an offensive blade, the 2.0 mm is a little too thick for chopping. It can be hard but still doable.
I now have a $125 Avalox bat. obviously, this isn't as good, but...let me tell you, it's pretty darn good!
I've also tried a couple of the killerspin bats, the one that's all black with the case, and the ones that come in Blue and Lime Green. Both of those bats feel "dead"direct versus this one.
And what's the difference going up to the Avalox? The Avalox has a bit more "responsiveness", an almost "brighter" feel than this one. It's a subtle, but noticeable difference when you're playing more and more.
Aside from highly recommending this bat, my suggestion to you is, always keep your bat clean with the cleaner you can buy here on Amazon. Keeping the surfaces clean, regardless of your choice, makes a world of difference.
I have requested a replacement, and once I receive it, I will update the rating as well as the review.
EDIT: I got the replacement and it's all good now. I would rate this racket highly for beginner to intermediate players. If you are below 1200 rated, you will be ok with this. Anything beyond that, you will need to invest in a custom-made solution.

Apart from the features, the parcel was delivered very nicely and with all the protection layers to the product. No internal damage could be observed.
That said, this thing really whacks the ball. When I decide to go for a power shot, it adds a lot of pace to the ball that I normally wouldn't have gotten with my Prius. It feels oddly satisfying with the increased reverberations I feel through the racquet, which makes playing with it more enjoyable.
All in all, this racquet is really for an offensive minded player who plays hard and relatively flat, and not for a finesse or defensive player. It took me some time to get used to it, but now that I'm used to it, I can't go back to my $40 racquet as it just feels so flimsy and powerless.
Not sure if it was a good purchase considering I can no longer use any other racquet without feeling weak, but I guess it'll have to do until my buddies break it by accident
De muy buena calidad y acabados.
Lo mejor es la tabla que contiene 2 placas de carbono.
Los hules, son de mediana calidad. Les falta spin.
En general buena opción si buscas mejorar tu nivel de juego.
Por lo demás está bien, el peso es muy cómodo, al igual que el agarre en el mango de la raqueta. Luce bastante bien el diseño.
But besides that it is a really good paddle. The spin is amazing. The weight is really nice and the handle feels comfortable. Not as comfortable as my Kenji but not a bad replacement. The power this paddle produces is crazy. Be weary of the light taps that you're use to.
It will take a few hours of play to adjust to the rackets, but dont let this discourage you, becahse once you are used to tbe racket you will dominate your friends!
