Paddle offers great power and exceptional control and touch. There is very little to no grit on the surface which surprised me initially but after playing with it I honestly didn’t think twice about it. I did have to have it replaced under warranty because of chipping around the edge of the face next to the guard. Vulcan support was awesome and processed the warranty exchange and sent me a new paddle. No complaints here. Would recommend solely based on Vulcan and the support they offered.
