The Killerspin Jet 600 Spin N1 is an intermediate level paddle that we really liked. It’s part of Killerspin’s Jet series of eight different rackets. It’s ITTF approved and features Nitrx-4Z rubbers with a 2.0 millimeter sponge. The Jet 600 is known for being hard to handle at first as it’s very easy to overhit the ball due to its higher speed rating. For that reason, it’s not suitable for complete beginners. Let’s take a look at some of its features in a bit more details.

Overview of the Killerspin Jet 600
The handle is a 5-ply wood, 6.0 mm lightweight thickness that is flared at the bottom and is designed for increased control. Even with the handle and the increased control, this paddle’s aggressive power style of play leads it to lack in the control aspect relative to its other attributes.
- Some have reported that the flared handle is too short and can be annoying.
- At 175 grams, the paddle is rather heavy. However this aids in the paddles increase power and requires some getting used to.
- Only a 30 day warranty
- Average control
