Diadem Edge 18K Speed Carbon Fiber Pro Paddle

Designed to bring some extra umph to the Edge 18K line, the Diadem Edge 18K Speed Pro Paddle brings a thinner core and a distinct focus on hand speed to players who are obsessed with spin and control. That’s right, the lightweight, highly textured, long-lasting 3D 18K Carbon Fiber is back to adorn the 16.1” by 7.5” hitting surface. This hitting surface still inspires tons of confidence, spin, and strength with every strike, so that you can hit just about any shot you can think of with the familiar 8.0-ounce weight of this paddle.

Don’t let the “Pro” in the Edge 18K Speed Pro Paddle fool you, with this paddle Diadem opts for the 5.3” Comfort Max gripped handle of the standard 18K Edge. This shorter handle promotes fast reloads and quick reactions during dink offs and keeps our hand close to the center of the new 14mm polymer honeycomb core. This core is 2mm thinner than the rest of the line and features a 10mm cell sized as opposed to the rest of the lines 8mm cells. With the help of a foam perimeter this allows it to rebound more behind the ball for more pop, without sacrificing the soft feel, expansive sweet spot, and impressive linger time that we know top player’s demand.
