    • This Paddle delivers so much power and speed that will leave you amazed. The ball will fly at insane speeds, allowing you to hit the ball from a greater distance, effortlessly.
    • For offensive players, it is an excellent delight because it is not a light paddle. At 190g it is one of the heaviest ones out there with plenty of speed
    • It is incredibly fast
    • Simple wide handle style which is very flexible for many users.

- cons

  • High cost- its price is entirely on the top, and less committed players would find it a challenge. Much more, beginners will find it expensive.
  • The Jet 800 is a fast paddle, no doubt about it. But with the high speed also comes a decreased control. If you are have been used to a slower paddle, adjusting to its power may not be easy.
  • For players who play defensively, this paddle may not be precisely suitable. And due to its heaviness, some users may get easily fatigued after using the paddle.
  • Not everyone may find its original shape appealing.
