Rated 4 out of 5 by Jan Good surface but only a fare handle.
The handle is designed for people with small hands. My hands are not that large for a man but it is too small for me. I keep the paddle because I'm not sure I can find as good a surface on another paddle with a larger handle. I'm getting used to the smaller handle as I play with it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill Guality Table Tennis Racket
This my second Stiga Master Series Sabre Racket, and I have recommended one to a friend who was greatly impressed by it after trying out mine and did purchase a Sabre Racket. The paddle is light weight, great speed and super spin control. My friendly rivals are impressed by the speed the Sabre generates as well as the soft touch control it has...

I was using a 6 dollar paddle before I finally went and bought the Sabre. It took some time to get used to the extra power and spin but once I did, it brought my game to a new level I cannot even begin to describe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josh I would look carefully before opening it
Make sure that the blade doesn't come with a dent in it before you open the package. Although it doesn't make too much of a difference to me, it doesn't look good on any paddle. Also, try not to accidentally drop it because the clear tabs tend to easily pop out of the handle. Not only that, but you don't want to break the handle itself from shock as a result of a fall. Although I think it could be cheaper, it was still worth it. I like that it is light in weight, which allows me to swing and strike much faster than what I used to play with, not to mention the extra control in the spin. However, I don't like how the rubber easily dirties up, so I have to clean it often. I love ping-pong so much that I try to find free time in college to play as much as possible. DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE A "LOFTY" GRIP PLAY STYLE!!! You will easily fling it out of your hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chef "Great while it lasted."
Got this as a Christmas present and I thought "WOW". My game went to a new level right off. Fast, good spin and decent control. Very happy with the results. Three years later and the lack of rubber durability is evident. Lots of chips around the edges. That's o.k. though, I think the blade is good enough to "fix up" with new rubbers that can be purchased on-line. More advanced rubbers that can be custom assembled to my ever increasing level of play. Ever increasing thanks to my "Sabre".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Priceman Undefeated first time with new paddle
My first time using this new paddle, I ran the table with my buddies that are pretty good players. I won like 7 games in a row. I let someone else use my paddle and they won to. I can play, but never go undefeated! I highly recommend this paddle. J.P.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kevin Great while it lasted
At first this paddle was great, with excellent control and good spin. It made a significant difference for me upgrading from a "cheap" paddle to this one. I play about an hour a day, and this lasted in good shape about one-and-a-half months with regular cleaning. Now it's been three months, and I've given up on it. The rubber is no longer sticky at all and it's very difficult to get any spin on the ball. But worse, the rubber and sponge have begun to peel back and flake off around the edges on both sides. I've actually switched back to a "cheap" paddle with better results! I have ordered another brand as a replacement. I don't recommend this one unless you don't mind replacing it every couple months.
