Not Impressed Jonathan Huggett Intermediate

Pros: It looks good - nothing else going for it.

Cons: Durability - it marks easily in so many places Handling - jars your hand Overall - I bought it in mid August and gave up on it this week. I play most days. Expensive mistake. Going back to my old Selkirk S2 Vanguard - thicker paddle, no gimmicks works much better

I needed more pop Chris Intermediate

Pros: Previous very good ping pong player and pretty good paddle player, I first got the CRBN2 16mm for the sweet spot and spin ability. Both were spot on/as advertised! But the reviews also said lacked a bit of pop on the drive shots- also spot on. So I looked for the power paddle that would still allow my spin - it’s my strength- and still a good sweet spot. This paddle delivers pop in abundance but the spin is SICK! I figured I’d use the CRBN for doubles but it has been Designated for Assignment as the Selkirk is a better overall fit.

Cons: You will have to adjust to the pop this paddle gives you if you’ve not been using this type of paddle.

Disappointing.. James (Jim )Wheeler Intermediate

Pros: I like the feel of the paddle having balanced it out with lead tape reducing the vibration and restored power. The cutout I like and the paddle is faster due to reduced air resistance. The control is great and although adding the lead loses a little bit of control it is worth it . Still tinkering a little with the tape but I love where it is heading. 4.0 player at least !!!

Cons: Came as an 8 ounce paddle. To thin with very little power. Handle heavy. Added lead to to balance the paddle out . now 8.61 and feels much better and power restored. First two hours of use I had a sore shoulder and upper arm , adding the lead has resolved that issue. Very pricey and expected much more for the price. A little disappointed in the reviews saying S2 Power Air was powerful . Feel like I was mis lead !! no pun . The restrictions put on returning the paddle makes it difficult to persevere with a paddle that think has promise.. Reviews need to be

Love it. Carla Weeks Intermediate

Pros: It gives me more power. I love how light it is. Great on digs and overheads.

Cons: Chips easily. I’m hoping Selkirk will replace when it gets too bad. I have a harder time placing wide angles. I hope I will get better at that with this paddle with practice. I’ve had it since Christmas. Pricey.
