I am sending this in again because the first time I did, I think it didnt work: At first it seemed like a great buy, but theres something they dont actually tell you; the paddle is made of thin layers of plywood and is easily breakable. I bought mine on 3/7/12 and it broke last week, 5/9/12, only 2 months. Then when I called, they told me that it wasnt a defect, it was the actual paddle itself. I would also watch out with certain paddles and probably call beforehand to not make the same mistake I made and get stuck with a broken paddle that will not be replaced or given a refund for. Hopefully this helps, because although the stats look good, they still dont matter because the paddle could only last a couple of months. The paddle broke completely randomly, without me ever hitting the table or my leg, it just broke between the handle and head right after I swung for a ball, which to me, and everyone I talked to at my club, looked clearly like the paddle was defected.
