Old-school paddle used by the great players in the 1940's. Great for control play and long rallies. Pips-out surface with no sponge layer, more commonly referred to as "hardbat". A hardbat paddle will offer sharp, crisp strokes. The pips-out surface provides a satisfactory amount of spin and helps reduce opponent's spin. Meets ITTF's red/black color rule stating one side of paddle must be black and other red.This 4-Player set includes four Cyclone paddles, three MK-1 Star balls and net set.
