The Apex Platinum is my fourth paddle and it turns out to be my best. I have been playing with it for two weeks and it feels great. It seems to offer better control than my Nomex core paddles and is a bit quieter.
At first the glossy finish on the face had me wondering whether there would be enough friction on the ball. But in fact there is no problem putting spin on the ball with this paddle.
The paddle seems to be very well built and durable. Fortunately it seems like I still have a ways to go before playing to the potential of this paddle.
Good job Apex.
