adidas DRIVE Pickleball PaddleThe adidas DRIVE composite fiberglass paddle is great to start your pickleball career. This very maneuverable paddle is slightly shorter and wider than the rest of the adidas line, accommodating common mis-hits from newer players. It features a fiberglass face and a thicker-than-average polymer honeycomb core for a comfortable feel. The low density core will enable the ball to jump off your paddle and over the net with less effort than you might expect. The light blue color and fun design will look good in your bag, as well.
The adidas DRIVE paddle arrives in a weight range of 7.7-8.2 oz., with a very comfortable 4-1/8" grip circumference on the 4-3/4" long handle. The overall measurements of the paddle are 15-1/2" long by 8-1/8" wide, resulting in a centrally located, and generously-sized sweet spot for a paddle in the "all players" category. Finally, adidas' Spin Blade surface tech helps ball control, and the carbon reinforcement in the perimeter of the paddle improves durability so you know your paddle will last.
