Killerspin’s JET 800 Speed N2 is the paddle with the most speed in Killerspin’s array of pre-made bats. This is a shakehand style paddle and would make a great choice for advanced recreational players looking to add speed and spin to their strokes.

The JET 800 is a heavier paddle, weighing in at around 190 grams. This makes the paddle ideal for offensive-style players. The blade is constructed with 7 plies, including 5 wood layers and 2 carbon layers – giving the paddle a large sweet, as well as reduced vibration where contact is made.

The Nitrx-4Z rubber is used for the JET 800, which has a tacky top sheet, as well as a nullifying effect on incoming shots with high spin. The JET 800 has a sponge thickness of 2.1mm, which is ideal for an offensive paddle – this thickness will give added spring to shots, as well as better spin.

The Speed N2 is a newer version of the original Killerspin JET 800 and has a more stylish, classy design.

JOOLA’s Carbon Pro has become one of their most popular pre-made bats. The shakehand style paddle is suited to intermediate to advanced players who are looking to boost their all-around performance.

A 7 ply blade consisting of 5 wooden layers and 2 carbon layers gives the Carbon Pro a solid and explosive base. The carbon layers help with reducing vibrations as well as enlarging the sweet spot of the paddle. The Carbon Pro is lighter compared to others in its class, weighing in at 170 grams. This helps benefit the all-around attributes of the racket, as a lighter paddle helps with precise control.

JOOLA’s 4 You rubber is used in the racket, which is slightly slower than other JOOLA rubbers, but still has impressive spin and good control. A sponge thickness of 1.9mm also benefits the control aspect of the paddle, while giving decent spring.

Overall, this is a high-quality all-around paddle and will definitely boost your play in all areas. This paddle is built for precision rather than all-out power, and we highly recommend this paddle to mid-level plays looking to develop their shot-making.

The 7 ply blade with 5 real wood and 2 carbon layers give the paddle a solid strike throughout the face while having a durable base. This is a slightly heavier blade, giving the paddle natural speed.

STIGA’s S5 rubber is used as the rubber for the Raptor. This rubber has a harder sponge which gives the rubber a good pace as well as decent spin.

Our rating9/10
  • Great paddle for advanced players looking to add some speed and spin to their strokes
  • 5 ply blade
  • Solid, but lightweight blade
  • Mark V rubbers provide immense speed and spin
  • 2mm sponge – good for offensive play
  • Ideal racket for attacking players
  • Flared handle
  • Fast paced paddle – hard to control for inexperienced players
  • Lightweight paddle – some offensive players may not enjoy this

Yasaka’s Mark V Racket is one of their most successful and popular pre-made bats. The paddle is built for a lightweight feel but provides great attributes when it comes to offensive play. The paddle specializes in speed and spin and will require a solid technique in order to control your shots with it.

The 5 ply blade gives the paddle consistent power throughout while giving the paddle a solid and durable base. This blade is lighter than others in its class, helping players with their transition to different strokes.

Yasaka’s Mark V rubber provides a medium-hard sponge as well as reasonable tackiness, giving the paddle a solid pace and spin number. A sponge thickness of 2mm also contributes to the offensive style of the racket. This rubber is known to be extremely durable as well, which is definitely something to consider when looking at a racket.

Overall, a high-quality pre-made bat from a lesser-known brand. Yasaka is a European brand that has a great reputation for their high-quality blades and rubbers, and they have built a seriously quality paddle here.


These are some of the best pre-made paddles you can get in this price range, and they all have the ability to improve all aspects of your game. However, these are slightly more advanced paddles and will require a decent amount of technique in order see the true benefits of each.

If you’re looking for paddles at an even lower price range or a different style of paddle – we’ve reviewed plenty of other options here.
