Middleweight/Medium Grip

Paddletek Bantam TKO-CX 14.3mm Pickleball Paddle

The challenge of playing with a thin core, 16.5-inch paddle with a 5.8-inch handle is mitigated by the Bantam TKO-CX ‘s 14.3mm cushioned and controllable core. Add the high spin potential of the Raw Carbon Fiber Face and you can see your way to harnessing those passing shots and keeping your dinks low. And while the long handle takes away from sweet spot size, it does lead to exceptional consistency.


PT-700 Unidirectional RAW Carbon Fiber Hitting Surface – Paddletek was not going to put out a Raw Carbon Fiber paddle until they could source it in the US. The quality and consistency of the paddle surface is extraordinary to boost linger time and impart spin.

14.3mm Bantam Polymer Honeycomb Core – At .5.63-inches thick, the core absorbs more of the balls impact, allowing longer linger time and more consistent placement of your shots.

5.8" Long Handle, Elongated Shape – Adding plenty of room for two-handed shots with the handle, the paddle also allows you to extend your reach with an elongated shape.

Is This Paddle for Me?

If you are a player that has good control and asks your paddle to provide some additional pop, you will love the recipe of the TKO-CX 14.3mm. The carbon fiber hitting surface and thick cushioned core add to your consistency and the long handle and elongated shape give you the power you need.

Think you want even a little more control from your paddle? – Take a moment to review the Tempest TKO-C. Or you feel you can handle even more power? See the Bantam TKO-CX 12.7mm Paddle.
