Killerspin MyT10 BlackStorm Outdoor Table:
The new lineup of Killerspin outdoor ping pong tables are a formidable bunch. The Killerspin MyT10 Blackstorm is the best of the group. We feel like the MyT10 BlackStorm is a step up from the Killerspin MyT Wild (previous generation table). Killerspin has always been on the cutting edge of design and functionality. They produce tables that not only look great indoors or outdoors, the tables are easy to put together. Who wants to spend 2 hours assembling a complicated table tennis table when you can be done in 15 minutes with all the Killerspin models. The Killerspin MyT10 BlackStorm outdoor ping pong table is no different and we will go into all the features that set this table apart from the competition. The one big drawback is the warranty – you get a 1 year warranty on the Killerspin vs a 10 year warranty on the Cornilleau Black Code. SEE THE NEW CORNILLEAU BLACK CODE HERE
Frame/Design – The first thing that you notice is the all black frame and tabletop. The 1 2/5-inch powder-coated steel frame is sturdy and durable enough to last outdoors year round. The 6mm black Aluminum-Plastic top is completely weatherproof and looks incredible in any outdoor location (just view some of the images we have on this page). Outdoor ping pong is becoming quite popular at resorts, schools, and backyards. For comparison, the Cornilleau Black Code is priced about the same and offers a superior playing surface and better ball bounce but not quite the same assembly ease.
Playability – The Killerspin outdoor tables are designed to look great and provide entertainment at outdoor parties. The MyT10 BlackStorm will do just that with adjustable feet so you can always get that level playing surface no matter where you are at. The feet are easy to adjust so raise or lower the table on pavement, but not as easy to do on grass. The 3 inch caster wheels are standard on Killerspin tables and with individual locks you can set the table in place on any surface. Rolling the table around pavement or decks couldn’t be easier. We do like the sturdier (larger) wheels found on the Cornilleau models, but Killerspin wheels work just fine on most surfaces. Each tabletop half will fold up so you can go into playback mode safely and easily.
Assembly – This is where the Killerspin tables shine compared to Cornilleau, Kettler and Butterfly outdoor ping pong tables. The Killerspin tables (both outdoor and indoor) are considered the easiest in the industry to put together and get up and running. JOOLA is really the only other manufacturer that has tables that can be assembled in 20 minutes or less. Think about Christmas Eve as a parent and trying to put together a ping pong table. You want it to get done quickly. The drawback to the ease of assembly is down the road. Unfortunately the design of Killerspin tables makes it so that the net has to be removed each time you put it into storage or into playback mode. The net holds the table together. That is not the case on Cornilleau or Kettler tables where the net stay in place no matter the position of the table.
Advantages – The first advantage is ease of assembly. The second feature we really like are the paddle and ball holders that are conveniently located on the ends of the table. These are new additions to the latest Killerspin tables. Storage is really compact with these Killerspin tables too – the two halves secure into small areas.
Disadvantages – There are several. The wheels could be larger and designed for all terrain use. The ball bounce could definitely be better on the Killerspin tables. They don’t really compare to the rebound and bounce on the Cornilleau 250S and Black Code. Throw in the 1 year warranty which is not sufficient, and I think there are better options out there for the $$. Check out the Cornilleau Black Code or 250S which offer superior ball bounce and 10 year warranties on their tabletops.
