We can't wait to get our hands on Steve Wong's latest creation, the ZEN Pickleball Paddle. The ZEN has an aluminum core and a high-end Gamma Contour Cushion grip. According to the technical specs, the ZEN weighs between 7.3 - 7.5 ounces. Steve says the paddle is one of his quieter models.
We love the design with the Chinese character Zen. The paddle colors are supposed to be brilliant. The pictures sure look good.
We've ordered a bunch of the ZEN paddles and they are supposed to ship to us next week. We'll post on Facebook when our shipment arrives and the paddles are available for sale at the best place to buy pickleball paddles, PickleballCentral.com.
There are lots of definitions for the word Zen. I think the definition found in the Urban Dictionary best fits a great game of pickleball:
One way to think of zen is this: a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen is a way of being. It also is a state of mind. Zen involves dropping illusion and seeing things without distortion created by your own thoughts. 'Sun is warm, grass is green.'
