Franklin Sports Sweet Spot Pickleball Trainer

Whether you have been feeling a little off of your game lately, or simply want to continue your progression in the sport, the Franklin Sweet Spot Training Paddle could be just the tool you are looking for. This practice paddle is 15" long by 5.1" wide, placing its head exactly where the sweet spot of your favorite paddle to play games with is. And just like many regulation paddles, this training tool features a 16mm (0.63") thick polymer honeycomb core, T700 Carbon Fiber face, 7.7 oz. weight, and 4.25" handle circumference so it feels very much like your usual paddle on contact.

However, because the head is only the size of the sweet spot, over time your hand-eye coordination naturally improves and trains off-center strikes out of your pickleball game. This smaller surface area will force you to focus on contact, while the textured carbon fiber material will offer realistic spin and control so you know you are still hitting the ball where you are suposed to. Finally, the intentionally extended 7.3" long handle both provides room for two-handed shots, and situates the hitting surface (and therefore the sweet spot) a natural distance from your hand.

The carbon fiber Sweet Spot Pickleball Training Paddle from Franklin Sports feels like your go-to paddle, but offers a hitting surface only the size of the sweet spot so you learn to strike the ball more precisely.

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