Balance and Overall Feel

The JET200 offers a high-level of control and really allows you to put the ball where you want it. Because it is a racket aimed at beginners, it has highly diminished speed. This is actually a great feature for a beginner paddle as it allows for easier ball placement and is more appropriate for someone trying to hone their skills.

The racket itself is well built, feels solid in the hand, and actually has a good amount of weight to it. It has the same feel as rackets that are twice as expensive.

The blue and black rubber on the JET200 offers a decent amount of spin, but it certainly isn't a super sticky rubber that will allow you throw a ton of top-spin into your offensive strokes. It's a beginner racket that allows players to reliably put the ball where they want it.

Summary

The Killerspin Jet 200 is a entry-level racket that is a great choice for recreational and beginner players wanting a paddle that can give them good control, and allow them to work on their ball placement.
