The Palio Legend 2 table tennis bat is the upgrade version of Palio Legend bat. They released the bat in 2013. The Palio Legend was received overwhelming reviews from many people and therefore the Legend 2 is being constructed with the purpose to serve the players even better. It is the most expensive of the Palio X ETT series bats you can have. The other two bats are Palio Master 2 and Palio Expert 2.
When I first look of the bat, I can know it is an incredible bat for players who are looking for a bat that can offer them powerful speed and spin from their strokes.

They make the blade of harder wood, there is 5 ply wood that constructed of the blade. They designed the blade to offer players with maximum power, this made the Palio Legend 2 to become a super fast bat with all these combinations.
There is a flared handle that is very comfortable for you to hold in your hand. You can observe there is a big logo you can find at the handle. While I first hold the handle to play the game, I can sense that the grip is having a little sharp-edged, but there is no big deal as I fixed it by sanding it down a little.
The rubber that put on both side of the blade is ITTF approved Palio Hadou rubbers. It has a harder sponge make it suited for players with the all-out attack style.
The rubber is tacky which may make your gameplay a little slower but it can provide you slow loops with heavy spin.
There is a case that comes together for the Palio Legend 2 table tennis bat I bought. It’s free with the purchase of the bat. You may get impressed with the case that has the Palio logo embedded on its surface.
One of the major differences of this bat compare to other preassembled bats is that you can buy the rubber and blade separately. It’s like you can get a custom racket for the price of a preassembled one.
It performs amazingly. I played some games by using this bat and it gives me a fantastic feeling when doing loops and drives. I do a test with the multiball and the ball is hard to control in the beginning stage, but after playing some strokes and loops by adjusting my pace, I get under it and I can feel my play style is getting better and better.
The Palio Legend 2 is a lightweight bat. You can feel in right away when you first hold it in your hand. At first, I was expecting it to be a little heavy, but it is just not the case. But that’s fine with me. No big deal at all.
The selling price for this Palio Legend 2 is about $50 with a free case. This can be superb value for money for you to spend on this bat. This bat is for sale now and you can buy it from popular online sport equipment retailers or from Amazon.

Palio Legend 2 vs Palio Expert 2
The rubber of the Legend 2 is much harder than the Expert 2. You may have the slower feel when you first play with the bat but gradually you will feel faster once you get used to it.
Palio Legend 2 vs Stiga Pro Carbon
One of the differences between these 2 bats is the rubber. Legend 2 is featured with tacky Chinese rubber whilst Stiga Pro Carbon is having the mechanical European rubber.
Is there a penhold version of Legend 2 racket available?
All Palio rackets are only available in shakehand version. If you are looking for a penhold racket, it is best for you to get one that made from DHS which is one of the popular rackets you can have that will match your playing style.
