The Killerspin MyT Street Edition weighs in at 154 pounds, mostly due to the 20mm x 50mm (3/4-inch x 2-inch) heavy gauge metal edge banding and 35mm (1.5-inch) square steel frame that supports to the table top. The white frame contrasts well with the black scratch-proof painted playing surface that is coated with a Repeat Roller Coating. The black table top has a unique look that sets it apart from other models in this price range.
The top itself is made from a weatherproof blend of aluminum and plastic and is layered to a thickness of 4mm (1/8-inch). This is relatively thin (even for an outdoor table) but it is built this way to avoid warping due to moisture and temperature changes. The Killerspin MyT Street Edition is comprised of two free-standing table halves that join together to form the complete playing surface. This allows you to store each table have separately or even use each free-standing table half for other purposes.
The frame itself rides on 75mm (3-inch) wheels for ease of mobility even over outdoor surfaces. The large 3-inch wheels are each fitted with individual wheel locks to make sure the table doesn't move around during storage or during play.
The Killerspin MyT Street provides a decent outdoor playing experience. The frame is heavy and solid and doesn't feel flimsy or too flexible during play. The table top itself is definitely on the thin side though this is common for outdoor tables. More experienced players may notice that the bounce of this table is certainly not tournament quality. The thin top tends to deaden the bounce and does not provide a consistent bounce through the entire playing surface.
This is mostly due to the aluminum-plastic composite material that will make the surface harder around the edges (where edge banding is) and thus, make the ball bounce higher in these areas than the center of the table. This is acceptable for an outdoor table because the use of materials like MDF don't make sense when moisture and large temperature swings happen. You should not expect this table to be 100% free of dead spots or irregular bounces here and there, but most outdoor players are not expecting a tournament quality playing experience.
The assembly process for the Killerspin MyT Street Edition is one of the simplest out there. Each table half ships almost entirely pre-assembled. After simply attaching the wheels and few other bolts and you should be fully assembled in under 15 minutes.
The Killerspin MyT Street Edition is a solid, inexpensive outdoor table that is constructed with quality materials. This table is definitely not for super competitive players but for someone looking for a good outdoor table that won't fall apart, rust or warp this is a great value purchase. There are outdoor tables that provide more of a tournament quality playing experience but they cost twice as much.
