Killerspin MyT-O Review

The Killerspin MyT-O is part of the Killerspin MyT series, a collection of both indoor and outdoor tables. The MyT-O is an outdoor model, and while it is not the cheapest or highest-quality you can buy, it’s a very respectable table.

In my opinion, it’s a great fit for casual players who want to play either outdoors, indoors, or both.

*Update* The Killerspin MyT-O is now discontinued. The best substitutes for this table are the Butterfly Easifold Outdoor Rollaway and the Stiga XTR. You can learn more about these tables in the “alternative options” section.

Product Features

Playing Surface

The Killerspin MyT-O outdoor table features a 1/8-inch aluminum-plastic top that uses Repeat Roller Coating (RRC) tech. The surface is coated with 16 layers of material to provide maximum protection against the outdoors.

While the tabletop is super-resilient, it doesn’t offer the best playing quality. This is because most of us are used to playing on much thicker indoor tables. Therefore you should not expect a similar bounce quality. However, I would say that the Killerspin MyT-O has a very similar playing quality to the vast majority of outdoor ping pong tables.

Build Quality

The build quality of the Killerspin MyT-O table tennis table is largely what you expect for a table of its price. The frame is made from steel and measures 1.4″ thick — this is perfectly adequate for an outdoor table.

The legs on the other hand are a little thinner at 1.25″. This again is pretty standard and is sufficiently strong. The legs also have levelers at the bottom which is a pretty essential feature for an outdoor table, so we are glad to see this included (because not all tables do).

Assembly and Storage

With just eight nuts and bolts to install the MyT-O takes just 15 minutes to assemble. You can do this by yourself or enlist the help of a friend to get the job done quicker.

In terms of storage, the table folds as most models do. You can even put one side up for solo play when you don’t have anyone to practice with. As the table uses a 2-piece design, they separate and can nest together for compact storage. This is great if you are short of space.

Maneuverability

At a weight of 150lbs, it’s a fairly light table tennis table which makes it easy to move around. But not so light that it’s a serious risk of being pushed over if you are too heavy-handed.

The wheels are 3″, which is common for a lot of tables. This will comfortably get you across most terrain without too much difficulty. However, if you’re crossing the likes of long grass or bumpy ground it might be a little challenging. Just take your time and don’t push too hard.

Alternative Products

Butterfly Easifold Outdoor Rollaway

killerspin myt-o alternative

While more expensive than the Killerspin MyT-O, the Butterfly Easifold Outdoor Rollaway is a far better buy in our opinion. This is mainly because of its superior play surface.

Made from COMPREG, it features 11 layers of wood with resin which are heavily compressed for a tabletop that is almost unbreakable and has an elite outdoor bounce. It also comes with a 3-year warranty period which is very respectable.

For these reasons, it is our favorite outdoor ping pong table to date. It’s also Butterfly’s best-selling outdoor table. They recently capitalized on this popularity by selling the same table with a melamine surface. It’s thinner, but melamine is quickly becoming the material of choice for outdoor play. You can check out the melamine version here.

Stiga XTR

killerspin myt-o alternative

If you’re looking for a budget option for the outdoors the Stiga XTR is the model we propose. It’s half the cost of the Easifold Outdoor Rollaway and offers a lot of value for money. The play surface is not quite as good — it uses a 6mm aluminum-plastic composite top. But this is comparatively pretty good in relation to most other outdoor tables.

It also supports solo playback mode, assembles in just 10 minutes, and comes with a net and post set so that you can get playing right away.

If you want to learn more about the Stiga XTR give our full review a read.

Closing Thoughts

The Killerspin MyT-O is a high-quality outdoor table. It’s far from being the best, as it doesn’t have a thick table top, and it’s a little on the expensive side, but ultimately it’s good enough for outdoor casual play.

Given its discontinuation, we recommend considering either the Butterfly Easifold Outdoor Rollaway or the Stiga XTR. Overall, we prefer the Easifold Outdoor Rollaway, but the XTR does offer far more value for money. Alternatively, if you’re in the market for an indoor table we have a guide for that too.
