Margaritaville 'Island Reserve' Hybrid Pickleball Paddle

The 'Island Reserve' Margaritaville Pickleball Paddle is a tropical dream come true for power/control balanced players. This paddle is a re-skinned version of HEAD's venerable Gravity paddle, which means it features a large sweet spot with a grippy textured surface that combines the best traits of graphite and composite fiberglass materials. The result is a surface that adds spin to your strikes with ease, and improves placement ability. HEAD Pickleball's unique Sweetspot Power Core creates a forgiving feel during impact, while simultaneously imparting more power to your ground strokes.

The Margaritaville 'Island Reserve' Pickleball Paddle weighs approximately 8.1 oz., allowing it to build plenty of put-away momentum, but isn't so heavy that it drags down hand speed. It uses a handle stabilizer to better provide a solid paddle-to-handle connection while dampening vibrations so you can focus on planning your next move rather than running damage control. The grip circumference is a small 4 1/8", with a 4 3/4" length.

The Margaritaville 'Island Reserve' Paddle by HEAD Pickleball uses high quality design and materials to offer an excellent feel in the hand while generating impressive results on the court.

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

    This was a huge upgrade from my last paddle. I don’t expect to be changing any time soon.

    Purchased this paddle as a Father's Day gift. It arrived speedy, quick and in perfect condition! Husband has enjoyed playing with his new paddle and was even partnered with a player using the identical paddle! Great purchase!
