The Killerspin Revolution is a truly extraordinary table with great looks and high quality construction. Let’s take a deeper look and see if it justifies it’s US$2,500 price-tag.

Killerspin Revolution – Table Features
First, the stats. The table has a 22mm high density fiberboard top, weighs in at a hefty 410 lbs, and has a set of four wheels in its stationary design to make moving it around easier. It measures 107.8″ x 60″ x 29.9″ – the ideal size for competitions, and comes in blue with a red base. The playing surface also has a special glare reducing coating.
With a two piece design, setting it up is a breeze, and its good looks are sure to turn heads wherever you use it. The design serves more than an aesthetic function: it actually offers more stability and durability than a normal table.
The playing surface also offers optimum bounce, spin and speed, and is ideal for high level tournaments. Incidentally, the Killerspin Revolution is the official table of the popular Killerspin Extreme and Spinvitational Tournaments.
This table comes in another flavor: the Killerspin Revolution SVR and SVR-B. While the SVRs have similar stats as the Revolution, they feature a better finish, and a $500 – $1000 increase in price. The SVR-B with its black finish looks particularly stunning and wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi movie.
Killerspin has built up a reputation as a passionate supporter of the sport over the past decade or so. Few companies have done more to promote table tennis in the United States (where the sport has surprisingly low penetration as compared to Europe or Asia) than Killerspin. With various nationally telecast tournaments, sponsorship deals, etc. Killerspin has enhanced the cause of table tennis in a big way. The radical design of its equipment, particularly the tables, has also gone a long way in attracting new players to the sport.
