Killerspin MyT7 Storm Outdoor Table:
Killerspin released 3 new outdoor ping pong tables in the Summer of 2016. The Killerspin MyT7 Storm is one of them. The table is definitely eye catching and worth a look if you want to play table tennis outdoors. The MyT7 Storm is all black, was designed specifically for outdoor play, and is priced at under $1000. With the Killerspin ease of assembly, this table will definitely be the perfect fit for most families. The no-warping surface means you can leave the table outdoors year round, although we do suggest a cover. Weatherproof ping pong tables have evolved quite a bit in the last decade and now you see them in resorts, backyards, and schoolyards across the world. No longer is ping pong just an indoor sport. The Killerspin MyT7 Storm is identical to the MyT7 Breeze from Killerspin. The only difference is the that the tabletop is blue on the Breeze. Other models that compare to the Storm are the Cornilleau 250S and the Kettler Champ 5.0.
Frame/Design – Elegant yet sturdy is how we describe their frames and designs. Killerspin is always pushing the limits between functionality and stylishness. When you bring your ping pong table outdoors, you want your neighbors and friends to admire your purchase. The Killerspin MyT7 Storm will do just that at neighborhood parties or family get togethers. We’ve even seen these beauties in company game rooms and in schools. The sturdy steel design is also what makes these so easy to install and assemble. Not sure why other table tennis manufacturers aren’t copying some of these frame designs. Solid, durable, and good looking – just a few words that come to mind when describing Killerspin tables. The MyT7 Black Storm is built to last outdoors.
Playability – The MyT7 Storm has a 4mm tabletop designed with an aluminum plastic mixture. This provides quality ball bounce and a weatherproof playing surface. The MyT10 BlackStorm offers up a 6mm thick tabletop, so bounce will be slightly superior on that table compared to the MyT7. You still get outstanding performance on this table and your neighbors will be jealous when they see you playing outdoors year round. The Killerspin MyT7 Storm is priced under $1000 and built to withstand all weather conditions that indoor tables just can’t hold up to.
Assembly – There is no other brand of table tennis table that lets you install and assemble their tables as quickly as Killerspin does. You can literally be up and running in 15 minutes with these tables. Try comparing that to 2 hours + with many other manufacturers in this same category. As a parent, we appreciate the assembly ease. No stressing out on Christmas Eve as you struggle to put together a tedious ping pong table. Killerspin is here to alleviate those worries. The only other brand that can match Killerspin in terms of fast assembly is JOOLA with a few of their models.
Advantages – As noted above, assemble time is fast. The color and looks of this table are also amazing. Killerspin is recognized in the industry for state of the art design and coloring to their tables. They like to call them ‘urban’ and we agree with that. The racket holders and ping pong ball storage area are nice features added to this generation of tables. The cost is under $1000 and the table plays excellent outdoors. What more can you ask for.

Disadvantages – Ok, we hate this part in our reviews, but it has to be done. The 4mm aluminum plastic tabletop could definitely be thicker for a superior bounce. We still feel like the bounce is adequate, but tables like the Cornilleau 250S Crossover for $1000 offer a 5mm top for about the same price. Essentially your purchase comes down to styling too. We like the Cornilleau design a touch better, although the all black table from Killerspin definitely stands out. It’s a close call between the Killerspin MyT7 Storm and Cornilleau 250S. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
