I unknowingly bought the smartgrip handle version which is taking a while to get used to and wanted to return it, but since I had already opened it and obviously used it, I can’t return it. The padding is great and speed is great too! Forces you too better your technique!
I’ve just started playing table tennis and I will say I’m not nearly good enough yet, but the paddle has increased my play tenfold. The way the paddle grips the ball is crazy, putting spin on the ball is as easy as just blocking it. 10/10 I highly recommend this paddle.
love it, but wish i would of got the smart grip as I ordered, it took me to reach after a week to find out it was "sold out" so I was sent the Regular D5 so that is my only complaint.
The Impact D5 is a good balanced setup. Gives me great spin and faster smashes when done. I like the feel and weight. My game has improved already.
Overall I'm very happy with this paddle
