Nakama P-1 Penhold Racket (JP)
Our Most Popular Rubber Of All Time With Carbon Fiber Power
Butterfly Nakama P1 Japanese Penhold Table Tennis Racket - Our Most Popular Rubber Of All Time With Carbon Fiber Power - Nakama Series - Includes 2 40+ Balls - Recommended For Advanced Level Players
The Butterfly Nakama P1 Japanese Penhold Table Tennis Racket is a hybrid of wood and carbon fiber layers. The wooden surface outer plies are followed by a thin layer of carbon fiber. The addition of the carbon fiber will make the blade lighter, stronger and stiffer. This provides a larger sweet spot than an all-wood blade and will therefore be more consistent. Sriver is an excellent all-around attacking rubber, good spin and even better speed. Sriver was the dominant rubber for more than 25 years. The backside of the blade is painted black as traditional Japanese penhold rackets are constructed with rubber on only one side of the blade surface. Both forehand and backhand shots are executed using the same side of the paddle.

PLEASE NOTE: Like most recreational rackets, this racket is assembled with a glue that is intended to keep the rubber permanently attached to the wood for the life of the racket. If you prefer to have the ability to upgrade the rubber when it becomes worn, please check out our Pro-Line Series.
