Electrum Model E 16mm Graphite Paddle
The Model E Graphite Paddle maintains a fairly long handle measuring 5 1/4", making it possible to perform double-handed backhands. The grip has a large circumference (4-1/2") which provides cushioning for the handle and is wrapped with a leather grip which not only feels luxurious but resists wear and moisture better than rubber grips. The weight range is 7.9 - 8.4 oz. which is on the medium-heavy weight side, and translates to a moderate degree of added put-away power and ground stroke confidence.
The graphite Electrum Model E Pickleball Paddle creates optimal feedback and allows for versatile play by experienced players.

I purchased the paddle when I felt I went to the advanced intermediate level. Now playing advanced, its serving me well. I held back a 5 star only because this is my 1st good paddle. Are there better out there? Could be but this ones a keeper for a long while.

I like the feel of this paddle very much, but the thickness and especially the length made it difficult to weild quickly. I have made this my SINGLES paddle as the reach is great and I don't need the maneuverability and hand speed I need with doubles play. The grip it gets on the ball helps me get the spin I want on the ball. Love the carbon fiber face!

I really enjoy this paddle, it is durable, and has great control and power. The length is great for singles, but I find myself wanting it to be a little shorter and more wide for doubles hand battles at the net.

Found it heavy and unbalanced. Returned. Love that PB Central has a purchase guarantee. **Hidden -BL

Started playing PB in August. Ordered a cheaper Wilson paddle because I’m a tennis player and Wilson was the comfortable choice. What a mistake. A fellow PBer told me to hit with his Electrum model E. Night and day difference. Great feel and touch! Makes a fun sport that much funner!
