Not impressed with paddle. Based on reviews, I expected it to have more power for putaways. The touch is decent, but not as good as advertised. I enjoy the elongated shape and grip size is great for 2-handed backhands.
All around good paddle. Feels great in my hand and very consistent. Great customer service as well!
This paddle has improved my game. I'm an intermediate player (3.5). What I need from a paddle is a soft touch at the kitchen line and power at the base line. This paddle really delivers! I feel very confident with it. It has touch, control, power and spin. I was using a different and more expensive paddle for a few months before switching to this one. I thought that paddle was great, but I have to say the CRBN-1 is the paddle I pull out of my bag every time now. My drop shots are also a lot better now and I can't even think of a time where I mishit a ball with this paddle.
The spin and control from this paddle is insane! Resets, drops and angles were so easy, because of the spin that this paddle can generate. An added perk, was that power was not sacrificed to gain all of this control. So happy that I made this choice! Would recommend this paddle to anyone looking to boosting their game to the next level of control.
Very happy with control and power from this paddle
