Diadem ICON V2 XL Elongated Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle
As the elongated and more powerful shape in the updated Icon V2 line, the Diadem Icon V2 XL Carbon Fiber Paddle works to provide you with touch and vibration dampening, in addition to power. The unique "3XL" core sandwiches a proprietary vibration dampening material between two polypropylene honeycomb layers to offer exceptional touch, a precise feel, and an uncharacteristic amount of power out of the 13.7mm (0.539") thickness. Speaking of power, the 5.5" long handle arrives wrapped in a Comfort Max grip allows you to get plenty of swing speed on this middle weight 8.25 oz. paddle.
While the shape of the Icon V2 XL may make you think of power, the 11.03" by 7.23" Japanese carbon fiber hitting surface coated in an RP2 paint offers a distinctly controlled, precise, and spin-happy feel. This hitting surface is able to provide these attributes by allowing the ball to sit on the textured face for an extended period of time, compressing the ball for a soft feel and adding reliable spin to shots of all kinds. When you are feeling a little less precise on match day, the foam injected molded edge helps you keep off-center hits in play by expanding the sweet spot, while the replaceable bumper edge guard keeps your paddle's edge protected and fresh-looking while you play with reckless abandon.
Longer and more powerful than its Icon V2 counterpart, the Icon V2 XL Carbon Fiber Paddle from Diadem Pickleball may be a great choice for you if you need a little extra reach, touch, and feel with your powerful game.
