CRBN-3X Power Series Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle
As a logical continuation of the "Power Series," the CRBN-3X Power Series Pickleball Paddle is a freshened take on the CRBN-1X, that now boasts a larger face (more surface area) and a massive sweet spot for all-over response. The 3X is the same overall length and width as the 1X, but offers a shorter 5.25" handle and elongated 11.25" x 7.5" T700 Toray Carbon Fiber hitting surface to help you control the ball from all over the court. The raw texture of the carbon fiber teams up with the rigid design to offer impressive ball "dwell time" that further helps you place precise dinks and put spin on cut shots that keep your opponent off balance.
When play is getting fast and tricky around the net, the polypropylene honeycomb core reinforced with foam injected edge walls provides you with even more control. This combination of materials provides ample feedback and a virtual edge-to-edge sweet spot that bails you out on miss hits so that you can battle with confidence. Both the powerful 14mm thickness option, and the control-oriented 16mm thickness option, weigh in at 8.0-ounces for quick control and powerful swing speed. An underrated aspect of this paddle is the reinforced unibody construction and fortified handle that eliminate weak points often found in other paddles, limit vibrations, and increase paddle speed.
Whether you need help playing near the non-volley zone or want to further highlight your prowess in that area, the 3X Power Series Paddle from CRBN Pickleball will provide you with the lingering control and crazy spin potential that you appreciate.

CRBN has more control than the 1, nice hybrid combination power, spin and control

This paddle has good power and better control than I expected for a 14mm. I also have the CRBN 2X 16mm and they are similar in performance with the 14mm having a little more power. You can’t go wrong with either one and PB Central is the place to buy them.

16mm - Power and spin is similar to the 1x. The main advantage is the bigger paddle surface improved my dinking and volleying. Even mishits around the edges get over the net. It’s worth upgrading from the 1x.

I like the the way the paddle feels and reacts however it is losing the black color on the face of the paddle

Such a great all around paddle the 16mm is. The 14mm is a rocket and a little harder to control.

I am very much a beginner. That being said, this has been a great upgrade for me and has added a lot of confidence in my playing. I love the larger sweet spot and the spin I get is far better than my first paddle. I do not regret this purchase for a second.

Having played the Gama Compass, Selkirk Amped S2, Head Gravity, Onix Z5, and CRBN 2X, this is my favorite paddle for power and control. PBC is our go to supplier and offers competitive pricing, fast shipment, outstanding customer service, and excellent warranty support.

This paddle has been a game changer for me. It provides unparalleled control along with that extra push of power. The Joola Vision has been my paddle of choice, but I think I have been converted.
