A friend had me try his Mach6 and usually I just hand a paddle back after 1 game. I played 2, and found myself wishing I could play a few more with it which isn't like me. Bought one and love it. It has moved my game forward overall, which is the sign of a good paddle to me (it shouldn't give me one great shot). My drops and dinks are better and I get plenty of power. It also absorbs a lot of vibration which my elbow appreciates.
I do need overgrip to get the feel I like.
My only complaint is they don't have something in purple tones! I have tried Amped series before and just never liked them, the Vanguard Mach was a game changer to me. So now for more color options!!
