I normally play with a PaddleTek Sabre Pro but decided I prefer using it in singles games primarily. I wanted to give something lightweight with great control a try. I wasn't expecting what I got from this paddle... It has a gritty surface, and the POP was impressive for such a light paddle(NO Dead Spots). Luckily I have found a doubles paddle for quick hands and put-away POP. I am a 3.75 player and consider this a great option, ignore the beginner tag. If you like control and consistency off the face this is a great price point to get both.
I’ve tried multiple paddle brands, the PB Pro Ultra Lite is by far the best performer in my hand! The hitting surface has a the perfect balance between sticky for spin shots and a firm core for power. The grip design on this paddle is also amazing with or without a grip wrap, I prefer without.
