Stiga Master Series Optima Indoor Table Tennis Racket
Great racket for the price
I had purchased a more expensive racket for my son now that we have gotten much better at playing each other in ping pong. He did not like the feel of that racket at all and felt he did not have much control over the ball. I purchased this racket for him for Easter and he loves it! The grip is very comfortable and the quality of the racket is very good. The spin he gets on the ball is amazing!! I do recommend this racket.

What a difference from my old paddle. There really is a big increase in ball control and spin. I should have made the switch much sooner.

very good paddle
It's a good quality paddle, for a begginer its good to start with a good tool so the player can learn the feel correctly. so for the price and the quality it has its very good for a develpment level.

Do not know enough to be fair
I started playing table tennis about 1 month ago. I was using whatever paddle was available getting too many mixed results. I bought this basically using the "eenie, mainee, moe" method. I feel I have better control but still losing matches left and right. I took a lesson and the instructor told the rubber in the paddle is too thin and recommended me to switch I can learn better control. At this point, I will keep the stiga. Hopefully, with training, the paddle will become less of a factor.

Improves your game
My son and I each have one of these. He immediatley noticed an improvement in his game. Speed, spin and control all improved. They are solid and appear to be holding up well.

Great Paddle for the price!
This is a great step-up paddle! My friends started buying expensive paddles and they started improving while I was using cheap "house" paddles and losing most matches. I wanted a good paddle but didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. I am a defensive player that uses loop and chop shots so I wanted more control with decent speed and spin. My game greatly improved with this paddle. Now I dominate and my friends are afraid of me! No Mercy...
