This is a custom table tennis bat, hand assembled in our USA Pro Shop. We start with a hand lacquered high quality blade, and two ITTF/USATT approved rubbers. The Gambler Silver Dragon Double Carbon blade is constructed of 5 ply Limba and Ayous + 2 layers of soft Carbon. With the soft carbon used for speed and stabilization, this blade has a huge sweet spot with the extra kick only carbon can provide. The rubbers are Gambler Sevens Soft, an ITTF/USATT approved rubber that can be used in National or International events. Gambler Sevens Soft has mildly aggressive tackiness with an emphasis on controlled attack comes with 2.0mm Pro RS Sponge.

This pre-made bat feels like your typical store-bought bat from a big box store. But the blade is at least a little better. PERFORMANCE: It didn't perform as well. Even with the carbon blade and tacky rubber, it took a lot of effort/energy to generate topspin and arc for a decent FH loop. The ball wouldn't lift over the net. Even when I managed to get it over the net, the ball would not dip down to land on the table. I made adjustments with my stroke, but there was no safety with the FH loop. RUBBER: The Gambler Sevens rubber's was tacky enough to lift a ball off the table for a second, but not as tacky as DHS Neo Hurricane 3. The hardness is like the DHS NH3 (very hard). Spin generatation was difficult on the serves and strokes. REMOVING the Rubber: The Zeropong.net says that the rubber can be replaced, but the process of removing the rubber and glue is not easy. It's nothing like changing the rubber on a custom bat. The glue they use to assemble this pre-made bat is not a water-based glue. Instead, they use an aggressive glue similar to store-bought bats. While trying to remove the black rubber slowly and methodically, a small piece of plywood still came up revealing the carbon layer. Using acetone with a Q-tip helped remove the rubber, but a thick coating of glue remained. Mineral spirit and a putty knife removed the remaining glue. I've done this process on another store-bought bat before, and it took the same amount of time and effort. BLADE: The blade feels Allround even with carbon. It's not too stiff. It's got a little bit of weight to it. I the blade is better than a store-bought blade CONCLUSION: I do not recommend this product. Even for a beginner, the performance of this pre-made bat would cause the player to develop lousy stroke techniques. Invest more $$ for equipment that will take you farther and make the game enjoyable. A good beginner remade combo is the Palio Expert 2 (The rubber is easily replaceable and the blade is not bad).
