Holbrook Power Pro 16mm Carbon Fiber Paddle
As the thickest of the Power Pros, the Holbrook Power Pro 16mm Pickleball Paddle provides impressive control and exceptional performance for avid players who prioritize defense and strategy. While Holbrook's Power Pro line brings ample power to the court, it is the 16mm (0.63") thick Unibody Edgecraft Foam-Injected Polypropylene core that steals the show in this thickest iteration. This core centers and expands the sweet spot to limit power loss on mis-hits, absorbs impact vibrations to keep any joint or muscle issues from worsening, and provides a soft feel that helps players improve with every reset, drop shot, and dink.
Sure, the 16mm core of the Power Pro Paddle from Holbroook Pickleball provides ample control, but don't worry, this paddle doesn't stray too far from its core values of power and spin. In addition to the above attributes, the core is able to work with the Unibody Force-Tec Unidirectional T700 Carbon Fiber face material to return energy to the ball for sufficient pop. This 11" long x 7.5" wide hitting surface allows for control even on the most powerful shots by remaining rigid when contacting the ball, causing it to dwell just a bit longer, and allowing players to impart impressive spin on cuts and slices. The extended 5.5" long handle adds swing speed and reach, and arrives wrapped in a Specialized Comfort grip, to inspire confidence during quick exchanges.

I've been using Holbrook paddles for about 6 months now. I play about 5 days a week for roughly 3-4 hours per day. Even with all the new gear on the market, I find it hard to invasive using anything other than my Holbrooks. I started out with the 14mm which I love and still use often when I'm looking for that extra pop but don't want to sacrifice control(singles and certain doubles matches). I eventually picked up the 16mm and felt like I gained a super power. The sweet spot is easy to find on every shot. Lastly, I will mention durability. Playing as much as I do, other than a grip change here and there(I always get another Holbrook grip because they're unmatched IMO), both of my paddles look and play like the first day I got them. All around top quality product. Would highly recommend to anyone! 10 starts if it was possible.
