Diadem Hero Composite Pickleball PaddleThe Hero Composite Paddle by Diadem provides excellent value to beginners looking for a balanced, forgiving design that will support their growth as players. The Hero uses a specially-developed material called HMT fiber for its face, which is composed of hot melt glass fibers that create a reactive feel, with texturing that lends itself to spin and accurate ball placement. It features a slightly thicker than average core that softens impact and offers consistency across the surface.
The Hero Pickleball Paddle weighs 7.5 - 7.7 oz., which is an ideal weight range for maintaining speed at the kitchen line while retaining enough power to whip out powerful volleys when needed. A solid edge guard protects the paddle from bumps or nicks that would otherwise compromise its functionality, and offers lasting durability. The Comfort Max grip has a small circumference with a moisture-resistant design that pulls sweat away from the hand.
The Hero Composite Fiberglass Pickleball Paddle from Diadem is a value-loaded choice that brings more consistency and control in every swing.

I like the paddle, though it's hard for me to tell if it's definitely a small grip.
