X-1000 Composite Pickleball Paddle by FranklinThe Franklin X-1000 Pickleball Paddle is a wonderfully economical choice from a big-name brand. It features an extra-wide (8.25") composite fiberglass face to maximize hittable surface area, widen the sweet spot, create a fantastic blocking tool at the kitchen line. The core is manufactured from a durable 13mm (0.51") thick polymer honeycomb, and is mated to reactive and game-ready fiberglass panels on either side. Versatility and value in one great package.
The X-1000 Paddle weighs in at 7.7 - 8.2 oz., putting it in midweight range and translating to adequate swing weight and power when called upon. It has a 5" long handle with a medium (4.25") circumference. The grip has perforations which keep sweaty palms to a minimum, while the ridges allow for comfort and a secure grasp. The X-1000 is approved by USA Pickleball and can be used recreationally or put to use at officially-sanctioned tournaments.

I bought this to have extra paddles on hand for friends and family, but it would be mean to saddle a beginner with this paddle. It has a bull-in-a-china-shop feeling. Ok-ish power but absolutely zero control.
