Killerspin MyT-O Review
Ping Pong table Review: 4.4 stars out of 5
The Killerspin MyT-O Outdoor Indoor ping pong table is a durable, attractive outdoor ping pong table that built to withstand the elements and provide a playing experience that is good enough for the indoors or out. The MyT-O has the following features:
- Extremely easy 15-minute initial setup ( only eight nuts and bolts involved )
- Specialized weatherproof aluminum-plastic blend playing surface
- Extremely durable 3-inch casters with high-quality wheels and individual locks for smooth rolling on any terrain
- Includes premium weatherproof clip-on net and post system
- Made up of 2 table halves that fold separately for easy storage and individual playback position for solo play
- Comes with 1-year limited warranty
The MyT-O is manufactured by Killerspin, a Chicago-based company that is most well known for producing high-quality paddles but has, in recent years, got a much better reputation for building quality table tennis tables.
The Killerspin MyT-O features a 1/8-inch top that is made with a special 16-layer weatherproof aluminum-plastic blend that is meant to withstand the elements and prevent warping while still providing a good, consistent bounce across the playing surface.
The legs are constructed from heavy-duty hardened steel and are height-adjustable so that you can adjust the table to be level even on uneven surfaces. This is especially important outdoors when trying to get a level playing surface on patios and decks.
Weighing in at 145 pounds, the MyT-O is heavy enough to not feel flimsy or unstable, but light enough to be able to store and set up easily before playing. The frame itself is built out of heavy duty steel and while the table isn't exceeding heavy, you can tell that this table is durable and rigid - unlike many of the entry-level outdoor tables that feel flimsy and light. It rolls around extremely well on 3-inch (75 mm) wheels with casters that can handle any terrain. Each wheel can lock individually so that the table stays in place during play.
The table is made up of two individually folding halves that can be stored separately giving you more storage options. When fully folded up, the two table halves can interlock to even further reduce the storage size. The Killerspin MyT-O can be stored in space that is 64 inches tall, 36 inches deep but with a width of only 2 feet! This means this table can be stored in many places other tables can't.
The MyT-O also comes with a weatherproof net and post set built out of hard plastic and nylon so that the net will stand up to harsh weather just as well as the table does. Also, as an extra added convenience, you do not have to remove the net every time you fold the table up for storage.
The playing experience of the Killerspin MyT-O is on par with most other middle-tier outdoor tables. The one issue with these types of tables is that the bounce is negatively affected by the weatherproof material used to prevent the top from warping. This means that this table will not have the same quality bounce as a similarly priced indoor-only table. However, this is standard among all but the very most expensive outdoor tables.
The Killerspin MyT-O is a well-built, attractive outdoor table that is built with high-quality materials and assembled into an affordable package that can be easily stored and set up pretty much anywhere. It has a sturdy, stable playing surface that will stand up to harsh weather and last a very long time. As a far as outdoor tables go, the Killerspin MyT-O is a great value and good purchase for most people.
