Franklin Signature Carbon STK Paddle

The Signature Carbon STK Paddle from Franklin Pickleball offers exceptional control and power that situates it at the top of the Franklin collection of paddles. The premium Toray T700 Carbon Fiber surface is at the heart of this paddle's exceptional balance of control and power. The naturally textured finish lasts game after game so you can confidently hit cut and slice shots, while placing controlled drops and resets from mid-court, and strategic dinks from the kitchen line. The durable construction is backed up by a thick polymer honeycomb that offers remarkable response, and the elongated shape lends itself to ground-stroke and overhead power for when you need to end a rally with authority.

To cater specifically to your game, Franklin offers the Signature Carbon STK Paddle in both 14.5mm (0.57") and 17mm (0.67") thicknesses. Whether you are using the 14.5mm to layer some power into your game, or the 17mm because you need maximum control, the 16.5" by 7.5" inch proportions will ensure you can hit the shots you mean to, when you want to. Meanwhile the 5.6" inch elongated handle and cushioned grip will help you reach tricky shots and limit vibrations that cause fatigue and discomfort.

The Signature Carbon STK Pickleball Paddle from Franklin is the thicker, more control-oriented carbon fiber version of the ever-popular Signature Pickleball Paddle. Its premium nitro-infused carbon fiber face enables the paddle to balance control and power better than ever before so that you can win points and matches consistently.

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

Reviews of the Signature Carbon STK Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"I've always loved carbon fiber paddles with thick cores, and the Franklin Signature Carbon STK is no exception. Overhead slams felt like they left the court a bit quicker with the 14.5mm model, but nonetheless, my drives and serves with the 17mm model still felt incredibly powerful thanks to the leverage achieved with the long handle and 16.5" overall length. I found the Franklin STK paddle to deliver a very soft and consistent touch at the kitchen line, too, and it certainly did not take long to get used to. The carbon fiber surface's ability to bend the ball on serve returns with backspin felt to be on par with the other well-constructed carbon and graphite paddles on the market. I think aggressive and finesse-oriented players alike will gravitate toward this paddle for their own reasons. Whether you are attacking down the line or creating pop-ups with your spin, the Signature Carbon STK has you covered. "
