I've been playing with the Vatic Pro Prism Flash for about 6 months and from the reviews it sounded like the Spartus Ballista V2 would play similar and look cooler. It does play very similar but has a softer and more plush feel while having slightly less pop and power. Control is excellent and speed at the net is fantastic. I really enjoy playing with this paddle and plan to try some lead tape at the bottom to maybe give a touch more power. I believe I saw an interview where the CEO mention a raw carbon fiber coming in the future. I'm definitely looking forward to that. Keep up the good work Spartus. The on;y real downside is the edge tends to chip a little, but that's to be expected with an edgeless paddle, and nothing a black sharpie and some electrical tape can't handle.
