Spin

Spin is one of the best attributes of this paddle. The incredible spin combined with the already big, sweet spot makes for some of the best control you can get with an elongated paddle. 

Power

The power is average for a thermoformed paddle and is enough to put the ball away consistently.  There isn’t a lot of pop on this paddle which makes it even better for control. 

Control/Feel

If you like to drop a lot you will love this paddle as the touch and feel on softer shots is great.  Dropping or doing a hybrid drop/drive with this paddle feels easy to place.  Driving isn’t bad either but if you really want to rip the ball then there are more powerful paddles that will do the job.  Resetting the ball with this is a breeze.  The 16mm thickness helps absorb the pace and lets you drop the ball back in the kitchen with ease.

Who’s This Paddle For?

This paddle is great for someone looking for reach, elite spin, great control, average power, and a good sweet spot.  This paddle lacks pop and above average power if that is what you are looking for.  If you are a person that needs the reach of an elongated paddle, amazing spin, and likes their control/soft game then this paddle is a great one to try.

There’s a lot of clutter and garbage on the internet, so why would you trust us? 

Well, because we don’t sell paddles. We get paid a small cut when you use our discount code, so it’s a win-win, and we can be unbiased in our recommendations. 

Furthermore, we only recommend paddles that we have personally tested. We use each paddle for a minimum of 3 weeks and try to collect and present the most objective review possible. 

Sure…we give our thoughts, but we also want to give you, the reader, all the information to form your own opinion.
