This is a nice racket for an all-around game. I have two of them, not realizing I already had it when I ordered. It is the Stiga Cannon. Same anatomic handle, color, rubber, WRB, Tube, and Crystal technology, selling for much less money in a national US sporting goods store.
The interesting part is that the numerical ratings are different. One has a control of 42, the other 90. But dont pay any attention to that, as they are indeed the same. I once saw the identical Joola racket in the same store, same price with two different sets of packaging and ratings.
Not trying to be contrary about the ratings. Paddle Palace is upfront when they say that the ratings for pre-assembled paddles are not comparable to speed ratings in the rubber and blade department. Likewise, ratings between manufacturers are different. Its just carried to another level when the identical racket is rated differently.
