Oneshot Pickleball Flipshot Paddle
The Flipshot Paddle from Oneshot Pickleball brings a whole new level of versatility to the game with its unprecedented design that uses a different material on each side of the face. Now you no longer have to choose between the power of composite fiberglass (the red side) and the control/touch of carbon fiber (the blue side), because this design allows you to switch between them! The Flipshot takes inspiration from table tennis paddles which often offer dual surfaces so players can take advantage of whichever material serves them best in the moment.
The Flipshot Pickleball Paddle weighs 7.5 - 7.9 oz., putting it in a pleasant light-midweight range. Both of its surfaces pass USA Pickleball testing, and utilize as much texturing as possible to enhance spin. The core is 14.3mm thick and manufactured from polymer honeycomb, which provides durability and a consistent feel that complements each face material. Its handle is 5.4" long, with a medium 4.25" grip circumference which cushions the hand and reduces sweat with its perforations. Finally, the 8.25" wide, rounded head results in a huge sweet spot that not only plays consistently across the vast majority of the face, but creates for you a fantastic shield for blocking your opponent's drives back at them.
The Flipshot Paddle from Oneshot is a unique "all-in-one" option for players who want the best of both worlds when it comes to paddle materials and performance.

Oneshot Flipshot Paddle
Jun 17, 2022
It took a while to get used to the paddle, but I now find it adds an extra dimension to my game. My previous paddle was a Tempest Wave Pro, which I also liked because of the way it facilitated the soft game. However I found it difficult to produce a forceful ground stroke with it mostly due to my inability to properly execute the shot. But when using the power side of the Flipshot I get much more speed and power off of my regular groundstroke. The control side seems to about the same as the Tempest. One downside is that it is more difficult to get strong spin with the Oneshot compared to the Tempest. But I think that is a suitable tradeoff for my game. I use the power side for serving and return of serve and when I try a third shot drive, otherwise I use the control side. Sometimes, if I have enough time, I will flip to the power side for an overhead shot. Overall I like the paddle and plan on using it as my regular paddle.
