Paddletek Bantam Anna Leigh Waters RAW Carbon 0.50" Pickleball Paddle

Developed with significant input from world #1 female pro pickleball player, Anna Leigh Waters, to provide a high-performance blend of spin and power, the Paddletek Bantam ALW-C 12.7mm pickleball paddle thrives in the hands of offensively-minded players. The 12.7mm (0.50") thick Bantam Polymer Honeycomb makes it the thinner, more powerful iteration of Anna Leigh's signature paddles. This core returns energy to the ball quickly to help you drive it past opponents, or keep them back at the baseline playing defense and making more errors. It may feature a traditional shape at 15-5/8" long by 7-3/4" wide, but make no mistake that this is a paddle suited to attacking your opponents, as that is Anna Leigh's way.

The Bantam ALW Carbon 12.7mm paddle from Paddletek takes this reliable blend of power and feedback and packs it into a maneuverable profile, and weighing just 7.7 ounces. The 5" long handle is offered in two thicknesses, a 4-1/8" thin grip and a 4-1/4" standard grip. The PT-700 Unidirectional RAW Carbon Fiber hitting surface produces crazy spin, allowing you to hit topspin serves and drives, and frustrate your opponents with cuts and slices with amazing ease. This hitting surface uses the natural texture of carbon fiber to impart spin on the ball while it lingers against the rigid surface. Reload quickly during hands battles, poach with confidence, and crush overheads while letting the ALW-C paddle do much of the work for you.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8"
