TechTalk with Paddletek Pickleball

Paddletek at Pickleball Central

Paddletek has been a major force in pickleball since 2010, originally starting as a small family business. They pioneered many of the technologies that have gone on to become mainstays in pickleball manufacturing such as the honeycomb core, and their equipment can be found in many pros’ hands. Paddletek’s quality is undeniable and they have broad array of options to ensure that every player can find their perfect match in a paddle. In this interview we discuss the major benefits of each line they’ve released, what sort of qualities the pros appreciate and where they plan to innovate next.

What are some of the differences in your paddle series?   

Genesis: All-around playability. We consider the Genesis to be our Goldilocks in regards to the balance between power and control. Since the Genesis was our first honeycomb formula and the polymer honeycomb OG, its formula is widely used in the industry today. We consider it a balanced starting point for R&D. The Genesis line is priced so that beginners or budget-conscious players can play with confidence and with a championship-level paddle without breaking the bank. We also consider the Genesis line to be better for beginners to learn due to their balance.

BANTAM Series: The Bantam series is for players who want more power in their game. The added power also means players that prefer light paddles (7.5 oz or less) have the option to compensate for the power lost by using the more responsive Bantam core. 

BANTAM TS-5 by Paddletek Pickleball

TEMPEST Series: For players who want touch and control. Made with unidirectional carbon fiber, the Tempest series offers game-changing accuracy and forgiveness. Great for beginners as well if the budget allows. 

What are pros looking for in paddles now? 

Spin. This seems to be the current trend across the board. In our experience, pros eventually want more power from their paddle. This is accomplished in three ways. 

1.  Weight:  A lot of pros add weight to their paddles for increased power. 

2.  Core responsiveness (pop). See Bantam Series

3. Shape: Longer paddles have more power in the sweet spot than shorter paddles, however the sweet spot size and the player’s margin for error is reduced. 

Why has the Bantam EX-L lasted so long as a pro paddle? 

The Bantam EX-L has been described as playing more like a stringed racquet than any other paddle. Pros who come from tennis recognize the feel and can control the power. A player who can control a power paddle has an advantage over those who cannot. 

BANTAM EX-L by Paddletek Pickleball

Can you talk about your pros and their paddles of choice?  

Leigh and Anna Leigh Waters with their Signature Paddletek Paddles
  • Catherine Parenteau (Tempest Reign Pro): Gives her lots of power, helps with reach and is super soft. Coming from a tennis background, it makes her feel like she is playing tennis on a pickleball court. 
  • Irina Tereschenko (Bantam EX-L): Gives her power, precision and response for the spins. She’s been playing with it from the beginning, so she calls it the OG paddle. 
  • Anna Leigh Waters (Bantam TS-5): Started using the TS-5 because she was younger and wanted a lighter paddle. Not only does it give you the soft game, but it can give you power which is what she’s known for. With the TS-5, she is able to RIP IT. 
  • Adam Stone (Tempest Wave II): Believes it is the premier touch and feel paddle on the market. Helps him with his defense, keeping the ball in play, resetting and setting his partner up. 
  • Leigh Waters (Phoenix Genesis): All-around playability paddle. Loves it for her aggressive playing style. She likes to drive and hit very hard, and the Genesis gives her that extra pop and controllable power, helping accelerate her game. 
  • Andrea Koop (Tempest Wave Pro): Helps with her blocks, resets and redirects up at the kitchen line. The Wave Pro helps her optimize the perfect balance of control and power. 

Can you talk about the innovative technologies used in these paddles? Smart Response Technology, for example?

Smart Response Technology is a formula that allows for the control of thicker paddles without a large drop in power. Thicker paddles have been popular lately, but a lack of power seems endemic in the category. SRT allows for the touch and forgiveness of thicker paddles without a large drop in power and without having to make the paddle very thick. It can be found in all Paddletek Pro models. 

What does the process of building a paddle look like?   

Controlled chaos. 

What is next for Paddletek?  

Spin that lasts, extreme vibration control and longer paddles with more options. 


We look forward to see what exciting new releases Paddletek will imagine next. Do you have a favorite paddle from their lineup? If you have any questions you’d like them to explore next time we talk, let us know in the comments.

TechTalk with Oneshot Pickleball: Introducing the Flipshot

Introducing the Flipshot by Oneshot Pickleball

Why choose between touch and power when you can have it all? After years of players having to select either a fiberglass or carbon fiber paddle, Oneshot is now offering both materials in a single design. Taking inspiration from table tennis paddles which often have dual surfaces, the Flipshot provides incredible versatility and different levels of responsiveness depending on which side of the face you use. This innovative style is fully approved by USA Pickleball and ready to offer new tricks with a flip of the wrist.

Read more to hear what Oneshot has to say about this paddle’s greatest benefits.

Can you tell us what is innovative and different about the Flipshot Paddle?

In this model we incorporated two completely different materials (fiberglass & carbon fiber) on each surface of the paddle in order to create a unique feel on each side. The blue side will feel much softer, consequently providing more control, while the red side will feel solid to provide more power. 

When did the idea strike for this paddle and why?

The idea started about a year ago when we were talking about how much we like our forehand or backhand more than the other. That’s where we had that lightbulb moment and considered incorporating two different surfaces within the same paddle to compensate for a weak backhand or forehand.

There have been few attempts by others at this type of technology in the past. Why do you think pickleball is ready for it now?

Now more than ever the sport has been attracting athletes from other paddle and racquet sports. These players have different styles and consequently need products that adapt to their needs, which makes perfect sense for us. 

What type of player will enjoy this paddle?

Any player that wants to mix it up and try something unique.

Which side would you advise players to use on their forehand or backhand?

That’s the fun part about this paddle: There is no right or wrong. Just use each side to compensate for a weakness or double up on a strength!

What’s next for Oneshot in terms of technology or innovations?

We will keep that a secret for now, but we can share that we have multiple initiatives going on that will take the industry by surprise. We have models launching as early as this year and as late as 2024.

TechTalk with HEAD Pickleball: New Radical Series

HEAD has revamped their popular Radical Pickleball Paddle series with thoughtfully designed new technology and graphics, for a line-up of four new models. Featuring HEAD’s new Extended Powercore technology and increased core thickness, the new Radical paddles serve up a deliciously generous sweet spot and increased control and touch, while still delivering massive power.

Like to put spin on the ball? Look no further! HEAD’s new SpinOn texture, found on the new Radical Tour and Radical Tour CO paddles, sets you up for more spin on every shot. Along with two grip size options and stylish new graphics, the new HEAD Radical paddles provide plenty to love.

We recently chatted with HEAD about their new Radical series – read on to learn more about this next generation of solid performers.

HEAD Pickleball Releases Four New Paddles in Their Radical Series

Can you go over each paddle in the new Radical Series?

We have four new models launching in April 2022:

Radical Tour
Formerly known as the Radical Tour GR, the Radical Tour features HEAD’s graphite hitting surface for a superior soft feel and increased control for the competitive player.

Technical Specs for the HEAD Radical Tour Paddle

Radical Tour CO
The Radical Tour CO is designed with a composite hitting surface, for increased power on passing shots and put-aways.

Technical Specs for the HEAD Radical Tour CO Paddle

Radical Pro

The Radical Pro is the ultimate power paddle, but still has all the comfort needed due to the Comfort Grip System’s vibration dampening.

Radical Elite

The Radical Elite provides a great value for the beginning/intermediate player, featuring HEAD’s Ergo Grip for enhanced feel upon impact.

Technical Specs for the HEAD Radical Elite Paddle

With the Radical Performance Paddles you have introduced new core technology. What was the goal of a thicker 15mm core?

We’ve added our Extended Powercore technology to all of our Radical Paddles, and increased the core thickness from 13mm to 15 mm. This has allowed us to increase the feel of the sweet spot and enhance control and touch, while still being able to deliver massive amounts of power.

You have also added SpinOn texture. How does the texture affect durability of the paddle?

Our new SpinOn texture allows for increased spin potential on all shots and is made to last the lifetime of the paddle itself, without wearing off.  Players adept at producing both topspin and underspin will find this particularly beneficial.  The SpinOn texture can be found in our new Radical Tour and Radical Tour CO paddles. 

You provide two options for grip circumference. What guidance can you give players to help them choose the right grip size?

Selecting the right grip size (circumference) for a paddle is very important. A grip that is too small can cause players to squeeze the handle too tightly, while too large a grip makes it difficult to maneuver between different shots. To ensure the right grip size, players can perform the Index Finger Test. For reference, pick up any paddle with an Eastern grip (holding the index knuckle on the third bevel in line with the paddle face). Then with the other hand, try to fit the index finger into the gap between the ring finger and palm. If there is extra space, size down; if there is not enough space, size up.

What’s new with HEAD footwear?

HEAD has three newly designed shoe lines for 2002 as well. Correct footwear is crucial for preventing injury, and provides a better playing experience. HEAD has designed great-looking new models of their three popular court shoe lines, providing a shoe type and fit for all player preferences.

TechTalk with PROLITE Sports: The Hyperweave LXII Series

PROLITE’s new LX Series paddles set a new standard in woven carbon fiber. Dynamic performance, cutting-edge design and stunning colored carbon fiber combine with increased comfort to create a line of new paddles that deliver luxury in both feel and looks. Learn what PROLITE has to say about their exciting new LX Series.

The new LX Series uses new face materials. What’s the difference between the previous Black Diamond series and the new LX carbon fiber weave?

The one small similarity when comparing the Black Diamond Series to the LX Series is that it involves carbon fiber, but that’s about it. The LX Series is completely different. The face of the LX Series is composed of a total of three layers of carbon fiber surrounding the paddle’s core. The first two layers atop the core are Toray UD carbon fiber, which adds increased strength and rigidity to the paddle. Then, the actual carbon fiber making contact with the ball is our new proprietary Hyperweave Carbon Fiber. It is an even tighter carbon fiber cross-weave. To give it the added luxurious look, the cross-weave is interwoven with gold or silver fibers, depending on the color you choose. When striking the ball, it feels pure and flush, like hitting the perfect drive off of the tee.

These paddles don’t seem to have a lot of texture on the surface, can they still spin the ball?

The surface appears less textured to the naked eye. However, you can feel some texture with your fingertips, but it does not involve grit. It is an extremely tightly woven carbon fiber, interwoven with gold or silver fibers, enhancing the overall strength of the paddle. The dwell time is longer than with most paddles. Very controllable, but with the three-layered structure of the surface, the LX paddles deliver even more power and action than the Black Diamond Series. It’s not even close. Power, dwell time, pure at impact and woven carbon fibers all help to enhance your ability to spin and maneuver the ball. With woven carbon fiber, the hairs of the fiber continue to fray as you play, which is a good thing. This adds even more grab to the ball.

Each paddle in the lineup has a different shape. How does the shape of the paddle affect how the paddle plays?

As we see many new players coming into pickleball, we have to consider their backgrounds. Most have a background in another sport, often racquet sports. This results in different preferences for balance points, weight distribution and swing weight. This is no different from how we evaluate our paddles and the of performance characteristics they have. Each shape displays different weight locations. The Rebel Pro LX and the Supernova Pro LX both have head-weighted distribution. The Rebel Pro XLT carries more weight in the end of the paddle toward the handle, creating more whipping action. The Titan Pro is probably the most overall evenly balanced paddle in the lineup. All have exceptional precision in shot-making and can create power in different areas of the paddle.

The Rebel Pro XLT is a new shape for your lineup. What led to adding a new shape?

We decided to address the need for a longer-handled paddle in our lineup. What better way to bring a new paddle into the mix than to utilize one of our all-time top selling paddles, the Rebel. Besides, we feel that the name in itself (“Rebel”) identifies our brand. We increased the handle length to 5.25” and utilized the Rebel dimensions, but shortened the overall length of the head. We kept the tapered neck though, which is important. When hitting a two-handed backhand, many players will bring that index finger of the top hand onto the paddle face. With a tapered neck, it fits almost perfectly on the paddle face. We wanted players coming from tennis (but really any background) to have the ability to easily bring their two-handed backhand into their pickleball game. A longer handle creates more of a whipping action, bringing more speed and velocity to your shots, especially groundstrokes.

Shop Rebel Pro XLT

Rebel Pro XLT by PROLITE Sports

The core of the Rebel XLT paddle is 14mm, whereas many paddles are either 13mm or 16mm. What’s the advantage of 14mm?

For starters, we embrace being different. Both 13mm and 16mm paddles have been made for years, including by us. After analyzing test results of both, we noticed a few things; 13mm paddles had a solid feel, but noticeable unnecessary vibration. 16mm paddles were highly absorbent of vibration and the ball, but lost power. With a 14mm core, we accomplished an overall thickness that brings the world of power and control together into one series, not multiple series across a line. After thorough play testing and analysis by numerous players on our team and staff, we found that our 14mm core provides the ultimate sweet spot in paddle thickness. We brought this thickness first to the pickleball paddle industry when we launched the PowerSpin 2.0 Series. Players don’t want to have to buy one paddle for control and another for power; understandably they want it all in one.

Why did you decide to come out with PROLITE Edge Tape Armor?

There are many reasons we decided to develop our Edge Tape Armor.  However, to keep it straight forward, we notice that most players develop wear and tear on their edge guards as well as their edgeless paddles.  Edge guards protect the integrity of the structure and if your paddle has no edge guard, almost all of them develop chips and scratches.

We saw some players buy colored electrical tape to run it along the edge, but that did not really protect it as much as it could.  So we developed our own Edge Tape Armor strips that come branded with PROLITE and even made some that do not.  Why?….because not everyone swings a PROLITE and we understand that.  They still may want to have edge tape on their paddle, and who could blame them.  Edge tape contrasts nicely with the graphics of a paddle.  Makes it look sharp!  It makes it their own, individual paddle!

PROLITE Edge Tape Armor

Anything else you’d like to tell us about PROLITE?

The world of pickleball is growing rapidly and we could not be happier watching it grow among all ages. As it grows, we do as well. We’re looking at many avenues for bringing new technology to the sport of pickleball. This includes not only paddles, but many other products that we feel can be improved upon to create the ultimate experience for pickleball players at their local courts, tournaments, and family gatherings. Studying, researching, testing, and always evolving… gotta’ love this game!

TechTalk with Engage Pickleball: New 2022 Poach Infinity Paddles

Engage Pickleball is a US pickleball company well known for their top-of-the-line paddles, developed with science and performance in mind. Engage uses applied physics, extensive prototype testing and only the best materials to create an extensive line of paddles that deliver excellent feel and power. We recently chatted with Engage about their new Infinity paddles which we’re excited to be launching this week.

Shop Engage Pickleball Paddles

How does the Infinity differ from the Pursuit and Encore paddles?

We designed the Infinity paddle for players that have an issue (or tendency) to have tennis elbow or arm fatigue issues. The Infinity is also a great choice for players who love soft-feeling control paddles that can easily generate lots of spin, along with the ability to provide power when they want it.

New Pickleball Paddles from Engage Pickleball

What changes have you made with the Infinity over the Poach Advantage paddle?

The Infinity leverages several technological innovations that help to mitigate tennis elbow and arm injuries:

  • Vibration Dampening Skin – Eliminates vibration at the point of contact (not lower within the paddle or through other materials placed inside the paddle that only stops vibration from traveling to the hand).
  • Variable Release Technology – Engage’s proprietary 6-layer skin produces more power the faster you swing, when you want it.
  • Counterweight Technology – Lowers the center of mass (balance point) closer to your hand, which helps to prevent tennis elbow by making the paddle more balanced (not head heavy, which is one of the main reasons tennis elbow develops) and by increasing maneuverability (hand speed).

The Infinity paddle also uses technologies developed to enhance control, spin and power:

  • Omni-directional Friction-based Texture – The rough surface texture spreads out in all directions to create more spin with friction that hits the upper limits allowed. In addition, the extra soft skin helps to hold the ball longer, a major factor for putting more spin on your shots.
  • Proprietary ControlPro ‘Black’ Polymer Core – This core creates the softest hitting paddle, ideal for players that like soft feeling paddles or have a tendency for tennis elbow.
  • Variable Flex Technology – Designed to flex at the point of contact for more foregiveness with shot-making.

The new Infinity paddles offer a diverse range, with four different shapes to fit any playing style:

The new Gen 3 Poach Infinity Pickleball Paddle like by Engage Pickleball

The Poach Infinity EX, and its predecessor the Poach Advantage, are more traditional shapes. What are the characteristics and advantages of the new Infinity MX, LX and SX paddle shapes?

Poach Infinity MX:
Extra reach, plus a longer grip, which enables the paddle to not flex at the net but to flex when you need it (when you are in the transition zone or baseline), and giving you more power and spin.

Poach Infinity LX:
The same characteristics as the MX, but even more of both (extra reach plus longer grip).

Poach Infinity SX:
Designed with a shorter handle for those that choke up and hold directly under the paddle face.  Usually the negative with most other paddles when you do that is you lose reach, but the SX was extended longer than the standard paddle to give you extra reach.  So by choking up, you don’t have to compromise.

You do a lot of research into the effect of handle length and how a paddle plays. Can you break that down for players and what they can expect from handle length?

Engineering of paddles is one of the main strengths of Engage. Our engineering and testing process takes into account how the length of the handle affects how each paddle plays.  We make varying handle lengths to create paddles that play differently based on individual playing styles.  A longer handle will make the paddle flex the faster you swing (but you have to get it right or it will flex too much).  You don’t want that same paddle to flex when you are at the net, or you lose control. We excel at getting this right.

Players that choke up (because they feel they have more control or they come from a table tennis background) don’t want to give up reach.  So with the Poach Infinity SX we shortened the handle but extended the overall length of the paddle to give them more reach.  Why?  Because the closer to the balance point your hand is, the further you can stretch the paddle to create the ideal balance. 

Engage paddles are considered some of the most powerful on the market. How do you get so much pop off your paddles?

Engage designs paddles for every playing style.  We are known for some of the most powerful paddles, but we also make some of the best control paddles, such as the Encore 6.0 line.

We design every model for specific players.  Engage’s owner Rob Elliot is a pro-level medalist and one of the top instructors in the game, so he understands what players need.  Some players can more easily generate their own power, so need a more control-based paddle.  Others need a little more help generating power to help them stay in control (by not swinging faster than they need) and to put the right ball away.  Engage designs all paddles with this in mind.  Whether it’s control or power, we have the right paddle for every player style and preference.

New Poach Infinity Paddles by Engage Pickleball

Anything else you would like to share about Engage?

There’s a lot going on in the industry, such as which paddles are made in the US or overseas and whether pickleball companies make their own paddles or outsource the fabrication.  We are proud that all of our paddles are entirely American-made.

Poach Infinity fun facts (this applies to all Engage paddles):

  • 100% made with material (core and skin) fabricated in the USA
  • 100% made by Americans in the United States
  • 100% made by Engage employees in Engage factories

TechTalk with ProXR Pickleball and Their Game-Changing Handle Technology

ProXR have established themselves as innovators in other sports like the NHL and MLB, and they are bringing the same creativity and technology to the sport of pickleball with the first ergonomically designed handles to give you more spin, greater control and quicker reloads on every shot. The angled handle keeps your hand in the proper grip and finger placement, leading to more powerful shots. ProXR Pickleball launched 3 paddles in 2021: Signature, Tour and Advantage, sold exclusively at PickleballCentral.

The first ergonomically designed pickleball paddle

ProXR has performed well in other sports; how did the knowledge learned in baseball and hockey translate to pickleball?

The knowledge we gained while designing products for our other sports gave us great insight into how to approach the design process for pickleball. We were able to use the experience and feedback gained in those sports, as well as the advice and feedback of many high level pickleball players, to create revolutionary technology for the sport of pickleball!

With over fifteen years of research and development in technology for both baseball and hockey, we have gained extensive knowledge about the connection between an athlete’s hands and their bat and/or stick. When we began studying the relationship between pickleball players’ hand and wrist movement with their paddles, we quickly saw many similarities to baseball and hockey.

The most important take-away we gained from the research was the need to design a handle that is extremely versatile so a player can make all types of shots. In pickleball, not all shots are made the same way. A player needs a handle that is equally beneficial for serves, groundstrokes and dinks. We have designed a handle that is advantageous to players in all three of these critical areas.

Shop ProXR Pickleball Paddles

Can you tell us about the tests you put the paddle through?

We believe in the importance of getting as much feedback as possible from professional and amatuer players alike. In our manufacturing facility, we created over one hundred prototypes of different faces, cores, shapes, sizes and weights. We then put our different paddles into the hands of players and listened carefully to all of their feedback. Through many rounds of revisions based on this feedback, we were able to design three very different, high-performing paddles, each with distinct features and benefits. Once we compiled the feedback and settled on designs, we submitted them to USA Pickleball to ensure that they are legal for tournament and recreational play. USA Pickball certified them all.

While we are happy with our current offerings, we never feel like we are over the finish line. We are dedicated to creating the perfect paddle for every type of player, which is why you will see some exciting new product launches coming in the next few months!

ProXR Signature Paddle

Is there anything that surprised you about how the technology performs in pickleball?

When we entered the pickleball market, we suspected that those who have enjoyed our ergonomic handles in other sports would be immediately attracted to our pickleball paddles. It was incredible how quickly the rest of the pickleball community recognized the advantages of our technology and became excited to try our new designs.

Even more exciting was the enthusiasm surrounding innovation in general within the pickle community. Our goal is to always lead through innovation; being part of a market that recognizes and values innovation is awesome.

We believe that an absolutely critical part of innovation is open and honest feedback from the community. We have received a lot of input so far and will continue to create a comfortable environment in which players can share their feedback and ideas for continued improvement.

ProXR Tour Pickleball Paddle

Can you talk us through the three models you have currently and what types of players would like them?

We currently offer three paddle models- Advantage, Tour and Signature. There are unique features and benefits to each one. All three have our patented ergonomic handle design and a polypropylene honeycomb core interior.

Advantage – Our Advantage paddle is manufactured using a fiberglass face, which is what many of the professionals use. When fiberglass makes contact with the ball, it releases energy, giving you more POWER when you hit it perfectly on the sweet spot. Shop Advantage Paddle!

Tour – Our Tour paddle is manufactured with a carbon fiber face, which is great for TOUCH and CONTROL players. Unlike glass fiber, carbon fiber absorbs energy, giving you maximum control over your shots and a larger sweet spot. Shop Tour Paddle!

Signature – Our Signature paddle was designed to be a ‘best of both worlds’ solution for players who want both power and control. We found that by cutting our carbon fiber into strips and weaving it together, players get the advantage of the huge sweet spot from the carbon fiber, while also being able to generate power thanks to the strength of the weave. We proudly believe this paddle, with our handle technology, is the best performing paddle in the market today. Shop Signature Paddle!

ProXR Pickleball Paddles

What is next for ProXR in Pickleball?

Without giving away too many secrets, ProXR is poised to have a HUGE year in 2022!

Now that we’ve seen success with our first-generation models, we are excited to continue expanding and refining our product offerings. We will be releasing new paddles to more precisely fit each and every player interested in improving their game with pickleball’s most innovative technology.

ProXR Pickleball is not just a “handle” company – we are an innovation and technology company. We did not set out to just improve your grip on your paddle; we set out to change the way you play pickleball. The handle is just the beginning!

We understand that as an innovation and technology company we will have eager early adopters who will quickly support our new innovations.  We also know that others will want to take some time to try them before becoming comfortable with our paddle designs.

In our first six months of business we have been very fortunate to gain many fans of our pickleball technology with an unexpected number of players adopting our new paddles.  We have also run into a handful of skeptics along the way. We appreciate everyone’s feedback and understand that sometimes new technology can be unsettling to some.

Much like Apple, Tesla, Uber, Grubhub, and other disruptive concepts, it might take some time to fully appreciate the benefits of our innovations. But similar to those game-changing technologies, once you become comfortable with them, it will be hard to imagine a life without them!
