As I now play at the collegiate level, I no longer use this paddle. This is a good paddle for a beginner or intermediate player to develop the proper strokes. The paddle itself is very light (too light for my taste as I like a heavy setup. The rubber is quite tacky while the sponge is very soft. After playing with it for months, I found that this paddle suits a defensive minded player as it excels in pushing, service return, blocking and chopping while it has really good control. However the paddle does not suit an offensive player. While looping backspin is decent, it is hard to generate speed and power in loops away from the table, loop kills or smashes. While it’s a pretty good paddle, you’re better off ordering a custom one from an online site for the same price. That way you can order whichever blade and rubbers you want and they will assemble it for you (and when the rubber starts to lose it’s kick, you can just order a new rubber instead of ordering a whole new paddle!) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (5) Reply 54 of 58 people found the following review helpful Excellent but pricey, November 8, 2010 By Xalcard – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: STIGA Supreme Table Tennis Racket (Sports) I am a casual table tennis player who plays a few games almost every day at my college. Thus far, I have no complaints with the performance of this paddle. It gives me noticeably better spin and control, and it has a very comfortable handle. It is a great paddle, but the price is a bit steep. I looked all over and amazon’s price is an unbeatable deal, but it is still a little more than I wanted to spend. However, it is infinitely better than the cheap paddles that are usually provided for games. If you have the money and want a really good paddle I would highly recommend this one. (note that I am a casual player and cannot speak for professional players or professional use) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 15 of 15 people found the following review helpful Great, May 6, 2011 By Jason – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: STIGA Supreme Table Tennis Racket (Sports) This paddle suits my game perfectly. It seems best for spin, control and defense. The first time I played with it, I beat someone that I had never beaten before. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
