Paddletek Bantam TKO-C 14.3mm Pickleball Paddle

Adding the control of a thicker core and a Raw Carbon Fiber hitting surface to this 16.45" long paddle gives the Bantam TKO-C 14.3mm a trustworthy blend of offense and defense. The longer paddle length and higher sweet spot combine with the mid-weight 7.9-ounce design to give you pace when needed, as well as the consistency and placement you need to dominate with your short game. This balanced performance has earned the TKO-C a place in the hand of Christian Alshon, if he trusts it, imagine what it can do for your game. 


PT-700 Unidirectional RAW Carbon Fiber Hitting Surface – A raw carbon face with peel ply texture is one of the hottest hitting surfaces in the game. Getting it made in America gives you even more confidence in how long it will last.

14.3mm Bantam Polymer Honeycomb Core – The Bantam core from Paddletek has always been their power core, this model is balanced through added thickness to absorb some of the pop, helping you keep the ball in play more often.

5.3" Long Handle, Elongated Shape – Slightly longer than the 5" handle of the original Bantam Paddles, this gives you a slightly higher sweet spot and more for large hands or an overlapping two-hander.

Is This Paddle for Me?

This paddle is for players who want all court performance with a control bias. The elongated shape gives you some extra reach to aid in lunging shots and those low dinks. The Paddletek quality means you will have this paddle for a long time.
