Just a power paddle with good spin Stephen Intermediate

Pros: Quick, somewhat more powerful, and nice grip shape and tackiness. Loud enough to scare people on smashes. Easy power for painting the baseline thanks to that super grit face. Easy to generate topspin, yet, it doesn't feel like there is any dwell time of the ball on the face. If you lack drop shots and dinking skills, or just prefer plowing balls into your opponents then check this thing out. If looks could kill...

Cons: Loud, not much touch or feel to it, lacks control for drop shots and dinking to me, and the v slot doesn't seem to contribute anything but wild flyers occasionally. There is a definite sweet spot so more critical to use it or you may find the net more often. The price point doesn't justify its short comings for me. I'll stick with using my omni vanguard 2.0 and use this for times I feel like playing beater ball from the baseline for fun with the bashing fanatics.
