Diadem Warrior 19mm Pickleball Paddle

The Warrior Carbon Fiber Paddle by Diadem is the first to utilize a 19mm (0.748") thick core, making it the thickest paddle the pickleball market has ever seen. It features a special 3-layered honeycomb utilizing hard-hitting Nomex in the center with a layer of vibration-dampening polypropylene on either side. The result is excellent power and feedback, while maintaining a sense of control which instills confidence in your ball placement and short game. These playing characteristics are amplified by the Grit Paint on the surface which enables the player to almost effortlessly add spin to slice and cut shots. Despite the imposing core thickness, this paddle does not have a large grip, as it tapers at the neck and leads to a slim 4-1/8" circumference handle.

The Warrior Pickleball Paddle weighs an average of 8.5 oz. and has a 5" long handle. The unique Taper Tech from Diadem is what allows the grip size to remain manageable in comparison to the dense core. At a 16.4" overall length, the Warrior creates an easier sense of reach and court coverage. Its face material is high-grade carbon fiber to deliver an extra reactive touch.

The Warrior Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle from Diadem brings harder-hitting swings to your game without reducing your sense of control.

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

    My initial reaction to this paddle was very positive. Amazing control adding spin and placement without any noticeable lose of power. The 5” grip and weight gave this paddle the feel of my old tennis racquet which turned out to be a surprising help with my performance on the court.

    I was excited when the Orange Warrior was offered, I sold my Teal Warrior and immediately ordered one. I was impressed with how quickly I received my order. Well handled. And I love playing with my Diadem ORANGE Warrior! Don't know if I will EVER order a different paddle!
