Top-of-the-line materials and a unique diamond shape make the HEAD Extreme Tour Graphite Paddle a "must play" for any pickleball players who are looking to add feel and control to their game, without hurting power. The 7-7/8" wide by 16-1/16" long proportions, along with a slim 11mm (0.433") thick profile, means this paddle is engineered to deliver a fantastic balance between hand speed, control, and all-court power. The face is comprised of control-oriented graphite and coated in HEAD's SpinOn texturing, while the 7.6 oz. midweight heft and 5" long handle provide the swing weight and leverage to drive from baseline to baseline. Two grip circumferences are offered, as well. These attributes will fill you with confidence while you place serves at feet, hit spinning winners from deep, and dominate at the kitchen line.
The technology packed into the Extreme Tour Graphite Paddle doesn't stop with the state-of-the art hitting surface. Just under the surface is an Optimized Tubular Construction (OTC) polymer honeycomb core that limits vibration, adds feedback, and minimizes mishits. Further, the core features, for the first time, a foam material injected at strategic locations to balance out the weight and ensure forgiveness of mis-hits Play hard day after day and the Extreme Tour will reward you with consistent performance.

So far I'm loving this paddle. In my playgroup, I'm the only one rocking one of these. Most are playing with carbon or legacy paddles. A year ago everyone was playing with Engage paddles. I like the way this paddle feels and the way it works when I'm hitting and dinking. Soft touch. The dead spots on the edges are VERY dead and you have to be careful about hitting there. Otherwise great.
