A man of your accomplishments in not usually labeled “good with his hands,” but in this case you might let the cliché slide. The Ping-Pong Blades ($79.00) by Broadmann, consist of two paddle faces with a gap in between, so you can insert your hand and wear it like a glove. This intuitive approach provides a sensory advantage because you can feel exactly where and how the ball hits the paddle. All this adds up to better ball control, a faster, easier game, and a superior backhand. Plus these innovative paddles will be a sweet addition to your Puma Chalk Ping Pong Table. But take note: the Broadmann Blades are not yet approved for international competition, so keep them stowed when you visit North Korea.
