We find the Slyspin Rapture to be a decent priced racket that offers great all-around play. As said above the racket is on the heavier side and can take some getting used to. The racket fits snuggly in your hand and feels as durable as rackets twice it’s price. It would, by all means, be a great choice for anyone slightly experienced.
The only downside of the Slyspin Rapture is that the rubbers on it aren’t ITTF approved. This means you can’t buy the racket and use it for competitive play. This can be a deal breaker for some people as the point of getting a pre-made racket is the ability to use it from the box for recreational or competitive play.
Overall the racket is a great choice and one that we can say is great value for money. There have been few complaints about the racket and we certainly don’t have any, except for the rubbers on it.
The Slyspin Rapture is a great overall racket and we would recommend it to any beginner or intermediate player. With great value for money, it definitely is a solid choice.
