Excellent, with a catch

Love the design and control of this paddle. Exactly what I was looking for, but with a bit of a catch.

My first experience with the paddle was when I pulled it out of the box and went straight into a tournament without any practice. I noticed that I was able to defend really well - play controlled dinks and add a tremendous amount of spin (much more than what I was used to). However, I consistently hit the ball short on drives. I was missing the pop/power of my old basic SLK (14 mm) paddle. I got pretty frustrated and thought about returning the Ballista.

I ended up buying lead tape off Amazon and added about 2 x 5 in (1 g/in) strips on each bottom corner; starting about a half inch from the throat and wrapping around the bottom corner. I also added 1 x 5 in strips at the top corners. I finished the process by wrapping the edge with black hockey grip tape, trimmed to tightly fit around the edge of the paddle, to cover the lead strips. This modification really changed the playability of the paddle by giving me the power I wanted AND the control I originally bought the Ballista for. Now I absolutely love the Ballista.

Terrific Paddle

Light and speedy yet able to spin and put the ball where it needs to go.

Thought I would try the Spartus

Put the paddle to the test this morning. Overall I love it. I don’t have anything negative to say about the paddle. What I don’t like is the 3” day return policy. In order to return it the paddle has to be brand new so there is no test driving the paddle. There is one item that should be improved on and that is have a protective edge. Not a frame but some type of protective edge. My kennix pro spin is frameless but has a protective edge for when the paddle meets the court surface going for those digs.

Bought my second as my wife took my first

My wife borrowed my Ballista V2 and never gave it back. She enjoyed the hand speed at the NVZ. I agree with her, the paddle is great at the kitchen. I bought another one for myself. Besides the hand speed, it has a great balance of power and control. I'll by it again if anyone takes it from me.
