Diadem Riptide Composite Pickleball Paddle

The Riptide Composite Paddle by Diadem is a balanced, midrange option that will provide an extra boost to your abilities. Its face is made with a unique material called HMT Fiber which is a blend of hot melt glass fiber that brings more power to your game, while the added texture to the surface is useful for spin and wonderful placement. It has a fairly long and large face that contributes to a broad sweet spot and creates a responsive feel.

The Riptide Pickleball Paddle is weighs in at 7.5 - 7.7 oz., putting it on the lighter end of the mid-weight range. It features a cushioned grip in a small 4" circumference, wrapping a 5" long handle. This paddle utilizes the same 12mm-thick (0.47") high-density honeycomb core found in the high-end Diadem Icon Paddle, which translates to a strike which feels more solid and reassuring than paddles constructed with lower-density cores. Now, players of all levels will enjoy the consistency of a much more expensive paddle, mated to a powerful fiberglass face material, all in a sub-$100 package.

The Riptide Composite Pickleball Paddle from Diadem offers potent play in a classic shape that will feel like an extension of your hand.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".
