It is truly amazing how well balanced this blade is. It can do everything... and everything quite well! Our testing team found real no weaknesses in any aspect of its game. Alpha Dog offers a lot of control and feeling, especially when players are blocking or looping near table. The speed is perfect for near-table offensive players. If you are a player wanting a well rounded game, Alpha Dog might be the perfect blade for you to step your game up!
It is almost impossible to beat the versatility of this All-Around (ALL) blade.
Spin Mystic is made for players that want tremendous spin without surrendering speed or control. Players that love to play with backhand and forehand pushes will find that there is no place on the table this rubber and sponge combo cannot direct their ball. Spin Mystic brilliantly uses your opponent’s spin against them when blocking. Because of its porous sponge and rubber composition, Spin Mystic excels at Looping while still providing exceptional ball placement. Players will see remarkable spin and accuracy, not only in their rallies, but also in their service game.
This rubber is for players that love spin and want loads of it!

I was pleased from packaging to product. The paddle feels good in the hand. The rubber is grippy. I would say I am an intermediate player. I also know I am far from advanced. Any concerns I have about playability of this paddle are more likely issues with my game and not the paddle. Topspin is very reliable. I might just need a hard/soft combo for my next one.

I've been a recreational ping pong player for over 30 years. Up until now, I've always played with "house paddles". You know the kind, slick rubber and no padding. The Alpha Dog is my first premium paddle, and I can't overstate how much of an improvement it is. It took me a few days to adjust, but it really provides an amazing amount of control.... and the spin, my God, is bonkers.
Anyways, it's not all rainbows. My son doesn't want to play me anymore because he thinks I've enabled "cheat codes". It looks like I've got to pick up another paddle to keep my guy from quitting on me.
If you're on the fence, just get it. You won't be sorry.
