Easy to grip and handle!
July 19, 2016
While the handle on each paddle is not excellent, the rubber is excellent for non-professional use. It gets 5 stars because of the excellent value.
My husband (who's played ping pong much more than I have) wrote the above comments. I haven't played ping pong for at least 55 years (I'm 63) so I have no knowledge in which to base my comments - but that won't stop me from commenting! I initially thought the handles would be too short and I was surprised by the unfinished wood but I was told varnish is inappropriate and would make the handles slippery. After using the paddles and balls today, I'm thrilled! I love them! The paddles feel great, seem well padded, and are easy to handle and grip. I really like the colored balls because they were easier to see outdoors in the sun vs. the white balls.
