My New Paddle Henry Intermediate

Pros: This paddle has been excellent since I started playing with it. It has great power and very adequate touch around the net. The surface provides excellent traction on the ball and helps with maneuverability on my shots.

Cons: I wish it was just slightly longer, but I am getting used to it dropping down from a 16.5" long paddle.

I hate this paddle (*read to see why) Paul Cole Intermediate

Pros: It was a 22nd anniversary present for my wife. She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES it! It has given her buckets of confidence at the NVZ. That means quicker hands and more control - uggggg.

Cons: I had previously been able to hit hard drives at her at the NVZ with GREAT success, Now after the 5.5, I have no hope - she returns everything. The last round-robin, I was paired with another slammer and we both worked drives right at her, with NO success for us - ugggggg. Finally we switched to dinks and with the longer handle, she reached those as well. My partner and I lost and I'm pouting. HOWEVER, the paddle is awesome and I'm soooooo happy I was able to get it for her!! 5 stars for the paddle and 5 stars for justpaddles for the great service!!
