Old-school racket 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 racket 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 racket must be black and other red.
