Although Killerspin is a relatively new table tennis brand, it has managed to win many hearts with its recreational ping pong paddles. The Jet Black Combo is one of its many creations that showcase its high-quality construction, attractive aesthetics, and reliable performance.
This Killerspin ping pong paddle is big on improving the player’s table tennis skills. The 5 layer wood provides a consistent bounce every time you hit the ball, while the rubber enhances control.
Killerspin goes all out on the Jet Black Combo as it uses a unique Nitrx 4Z rubber which is ITTF approved. This rubber is tackier than regular rubber allowing the player to make quick reflexes while delivering greater spins.
Although the blade’s multi-layer construction adds some weight to the paddle, it enhances its durability.
Coupled with the unique Nitrx rubber, this ping pong paddle can withstand rigorous play for a long time. I used this paddle for a while, and it held up several accidental table smashes pretty well.
Ease of use
The ping paddle feels heavy due to the 5 ply wood used on the blade, but the long handle makes it easy to use. Killerspin uses the classic flared handle grip on this paddle, the go-to handle for Shakehand grip players. This playing style enhances forehand play and performance.
Value for money
I found this paddle a little overpriced for its features. By comparison, ping pong paddles like JOOLA Infinity Balance are cheaper, yet it’s a choke-full of features.
However, for a player who fancies a stylish ping pong paddle, is a beginner, or looking to improve skill, it’s a pretty good buy for the price.
I was a little skeptical about buying this ping pong paddle, but I wished I had done it sooner once I bought it. The paddle delivers incredible speed and spin, and its construction makes it easy to use. I would recommend it for beginners and intermediate players.
