The DHS A4006 is a pen-hold bat that emphasizes spin over power. Should you consider buying one? What does the racket excel at besides spin? In this review, we hope to clear things up for you and help you make that choice.
The DHS A4006 is a pen hold bat that features 7-ply pure wood, red pimples in and black pimples in. The front side rubber is Hurricane II and the back side is G888. It is advertised as a loop with quick-attack bat.
It is comparable to other $100+ bats. The spin you get off it, when brushing properly, is tremendous. We would recommend the DHS A4006 to beginner OR intermediate pen holders out there. But getting used to the strong spin on the ball when coming off the bat takes some getting used to.
If your game is about control or power we wouldn’t recommend getting one. The bat’s power is truly spin and that you’ll get a lot of. Speed with the DHS A4006 can only be achieved with practiced technique. It is not a very forgiving bat and will help you learn to hit your shots perfectly.
Overall we would recommend the DHS A4006 to players seeking the best value-for-money pen hold bat.
We find the DHS A4006 to be the best choice for pen holders out there. It is the best pre-made one that is widely available. You would have to buy a custom blade to get something better or different.
