Diadem Edge 18K Power Pro 3D Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle
The Diadem Edge 18K Power Pro Pickleball Paddle adds even more power and reach to the original and incredibly popular Edge 18K, answering the calls of players who like to dominate their opponents with drives and aggressive play. The added power comes from the thermo-formed construction which situates carbon fiber around the edges of the paddle, under the Rib Edge Guard, resulting in more consistent response across the entire face. The surface that is wrapped around the edge is the now-famous 3D 18K Carbon Fiber hitting surface. This 10.7" long by 7.5" wide hitting surface not only adds power by returning energy to the ball, but adds control by compressing the ball and allowing you to spin it comfortably in any direction. The added reach comes via the 5.7" long handle (up from 5.3" with the original Edge 18K) wrapped in a Comfort Max grip.
While hitting surfaces often get the most glory and attention, we simply cannot ignore the performance of the 16mm (0.63") polymer honeycomb core found in the Diadem Edge 18K Power Pro paddle. Boasting 8mm diameter cells (this is small, so there's more of them), this core is able to expand the sweet spot to help players survive off-center strikes and limit impact vibrations that travel up the arm and cause fatigue. It also backs up the hitting surface by helping it rebound quickly, popping your power shots past your opponents with increasing pace.
The Edge 18K Power Pro Paddle from Diadem Pickleball provides players with power, reach, and spin that will help you play an aggressive game that keeps opponents off balance.
