Diadem Edge 18K Textured Carbon Fiber Pickleball PaddleFull video review of the Diadem 18K Textured Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle!
From the moment we set eyes on the Diadem Edge 18K Carbon Fiber Paddle, one thing jumped out at us...the 3D 18K Carbon Fiber face material. Spanning the entire 11.1" x 7.5" face, this carbon hitting surface uses Triaxial carbon fiber to create a confidence-inspiring geometric visual, unparalleled grit for spin, and a stiffer, stronger, and longer lasting performance than other carbon fiber hitting surfaces. This technology is highlighted and protected by the Edge Shield Pro edge guard that further inspires confidence in the hand, while enhancing longevity on the court.
While the 3D 18K hitting surface is stronger and able to add spin regardless of launch angle, it is also lighter. This allows Diadem to better control the 8-ounce average weight of the Edge 18K paddle. A 16mm (0.63") thick honeycomb polymer core backs up the impressive hitting surface with an expansive sweet spot, dampened sound, and plenty of feedback. Meanwhile, the compact 5" long handle allows you to reload quickly near the kitchen, and strike everything from passing shots to overhead put-aways smack dab in the middle of the generous sweet spot.
