VERDICT

The Killerspin MyT5 indoor ping pong table saves you time with its fast, easy setup, as compared to other models. However it is a step above the basic table in terms of price so it might not fit comfortably into your budget. Overall, this table's quality features, including a safety locking system, as well as its strong construction, make it a great choice for your man cave, in our opinion.

Features:

  • Size: 107.8in L x 60in W x 29.9in H
  • Weight: 196lbs
  • 3/5in MDF top with Repeat Roller Coating
  • Black or blue top
  • 4/5in x 2in square metal frame
  • Individual leg levellers
  • Eight 3in castor wheels
  • Safety locking system
  • Two halves
  • Net included

Rollaway Design

The obvious benefit of a rollaway design of ping pong table is that you can easily roll it away into storage when you aren't using it. The table has a two-halves design too, so taking it down and wheeling it away on its 3in wheels is a cinch (with the exception of the net storage issue that we discuss later).

Easy, Fast Setup

Some indoor ping pong tables can take four or five hours to put together but this is not the case with the MyT5 model. From box to set up, this table can be put together within 15-30 minutes, as confirmed by user reviews online. The instructions are straightforward for the table that only has eight nuts and bolts.

Strong Construction

The Killerspin table has a heavy-gauge metal frame and legs. The top is built of durable MDF, and the table comes with a premium steel net and post system. The frame and wheels are larger than the MyT4, and the playing surface is larger than the other model too. The strong construction makes the table can easily accommodate your aggressive gameplay!

Individual Leg Levelers

This amazing feature enables you to adjust each leg individually to create a level playing surface even when the floor of your man cave is not even. There's nothing worse than a wobbly ping pong table (well, except maybe a cheater!).

Safety Locking System

Lock the 3in castor wheels into place and you won't have to worry about the table moving during your match, even when it gets fast and furious. If you play as a family or your kids use the table without you, the safety feature is beneficial. You can use the safety system when placing the table into storage too if you worry about your kids exploring around the table without your permission.

Top has Repeat Roller Coating

The MDF top, available in blue or black, features a specially engineered Repeat Roller Coating (RRC). During manufacturing, 16 layers of finish were applied to the Kingspin table. The RRC coating, which is found on professional table tennis tables, encourages ball bounce and keeps the table looking its best. RRC also protects the table's top.

Unfortunately, no product is perfect. Here are a few downsides of the MyT5 ping pong table:

Playback Mode Issues

While playback mode or lifting one side of the table to play solo, helps improve your ping pong skills, it's not easy to do with this table. Users online report that they find it difficult to create the playback environment with this particular table because of its design, particularly when only one person is adjusting the table.

Storage Issue with Net

While the MyT5 ping pong table includes a net, removing the net must be done before the table is folded away. If this step is omitted, the net can be stretched and lose its shape during the dismantling process.

Price

Whether this table is too much money or not depends on how much money you have to spend. It is not overpriced considering the many features. However, if you don't want to spend beyond the lower level price for a full-size table, which is about $400, then you probably will have a problem with the price tag of slightly over $650.
