Perfect starter bat. Has everything needed to learn the basics. A definite step up from cheap $5 bats. Decent Yuki rubber which has a bit of spin, quite light, around 1.8mm or sponge. Control biased to help you get shots in. Will be good for a fairly flat, accuracy based play - drives, pushes, smashes. Once you get to the point of topspin loops you know it'll be time to upgrade. Comes with a bat cover to keep the rubber new. Lasted me 2-3 years of casual play.

Plays very well for a budget premade bat. Puts too little effect on ball to win many points outright, but will keep you in the rally a long time. Throw angle is moderate: lower than Galaxy 9000E rubber on Sanwei M8 blade, lower than Yasaka Rakza 7 Soft on Yasaka Sweden Classic blade, higher than some Donic setups. Excellent drives, good chops and flicks, but weak blocks. Decent spin; better than some other budget Butterfly bats such as Flail. Speed is well matched to spin and control. Balanced, reliable play. Fairly light at 173g with good balance and comfy handle.
