Power Rating - Power refers to the driving force behind a paddle's hits. Paddles with added power tend to be heavier and feature more dynamic sweet spots. They deliver impressive serves and returns, sending the ball across the court with speed and strength.
Control Rating - Also known as touch, control refers to the accuracy of a paddle’s aim. Paddles with a high control rating—such as those with graphite surfaces—are ideal for players who already have powerful swings and want to increase the strategic placement of their shots.
Forgiveness Rating - Forgiveness refers to the size of a paddle's sweet spot. The larger the sweet spot, the more forgiving the paddle. Sometimes called "player's paddles", forgiving paddles tend to be crowd favorites due to their versatility and playability - light enough for dinks, yet heavy enough to add power.
