If any of you purchased a Black Tempest Paddletek Paddle please see the recall notice by clicking on the following.. Tempest Recall If you have one of these and do not play in tournaments, then you do not need to be concerned with said recall. However, if you do play in sanctioned tournaments you should read the story and take appropriate action. I assume that since Mike Rains is a distributor, he can also provide information and assistance. It is so nice to see a vendor stand behind their products. Play well, have fun, and be safe.
