I know you’re familiar with Killerspin. This company is a Chicago based which produces premium-quality table tennis equipment and other sports apparel.
One of their premium-quality table tennis equipment is the Killerspin Jet 500 table tennis paddle. This paddle is designed for those intermediate to advanced players. So, if you’re just starting out table tennis sports, better to look for the beginners quality racket like Stiga Titan.
What makes this paddle a premium racket?
1. The Blade Thickness
Its blade is made of high quality wood and ITTF approved competition rubbers. If you’re an all around player this racket is perfect for you, as this can give you a good balance speed, control and nice game spin.
The Killerspin Jet 500 is a little heavier and thicker than Killerspin Jet 600. Its blade has a thickness of 6.7mm which provides an extra power over your play and has a 5 complementary wood ply layers.
2. High-Tech Premium Rubber
No matter how good the blade is, without a premium rubber this paddle won’t perform well. The Jet 500 comes with Nitrx-4z rubber, a high tension rubber which approved by ITTF.
The top sheet of Nitrx-4z can produce an exceptional grip on the ball which gives the ball a heavy spin and not only that, with this sticky rubber you can easily counter the spinny shots of your opponent. You can also take an advantage on heavy spin serves.
3. The Ergonomic Flared Handle
There’s a tendency that when you make a hard shot the paddle will might slip onto your hand. The Killerspin Jet 500 handle can prevent that to happen, with its flared handle you can make a good grip regardless of your hand size. You can adjust your grip up or down in such a way you’re comfortable with.
