This paddle puts all other brands' pre-made paddles to shame. Control and spin are there without a doubt, speed is possible but you have to learn proper form (isn't that what "beginner" paddles are for?) I had been playing for 6 years (2 competitively) when I bought this paddle and it allowed me to develop proper strokes. The only reason I moved on to another racket is because the rubber wore out (after a year, with no cleaning) and I wanted a custom racket I could replace the rubbers on. I am the president/coach of a collegiate table tennis team and recommend this racket to every newcomer because it works for all styles and will assist in proper stroke development.
