I play once a week with friends and we're all serious but still learning players. We are all @ about the same level of play but now we are all investing into better paddles. I recently purchased the Jet 600 and I immediately improved my game. The spin it puts on my serve is much harder for my opponents to return. The speed is faster but not too much that you overshoot the table. And the control is excellent! This is a great paddle if you want to take your game to the next level. Awesome!
