Phoenix G6 Composite Pickleball PaddleThe Phoenix G6 Composite has a large sweet spot with high shot accuracy. This paddle boasts plenty of power with a polymer core that will prevent shaking and heavy vibrations from weakening your accuracy. It even has an additional graphite layer inside the design to improve control and create quieter play. It's a great choice for those seeking improved performance and more pop during games.
The Phoenix G6 Composite ranges from 7.8 - 8.1 oz so that it contributes a solid amount of heft with every swing. Still light enough to maneuver at the kitchen, the grip has a medium circumference with a reinforced structure so that shock is reduced even further. Players can make use of the broad surface area to work every angle of the face and return tricky hits.
The Phoenix G6 Composite is a strong hitter that puts the pressure on your opponents while providing you with a touch that's surprisingly gentle.
Available colors: Blue Riptide, Green Barium, Purple Aurora, Red Wildfire, and Yellow Horizon.
Note: The Phoenix Genesis Series of paddles feature a different design on the two sides of the paddle - one side has the brand name listed, and the other has the sharp new Paddletek "P" logo on it.
Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".
Club Reviews of the Phoenix G6 Composite Paddle
"I'm a 53-year-old male who's been playing pickleball for about two years. Most of my play is recreational and I'd consider myself a 3.0 to 3.5 player, although I haven't been to any top tournaments to verify my skill level. I used the Paddletek Phoenix G6 for many games against different players to get a true assessment. Features I really like are the grip circumference, the 5" grip length and the thick grip wrap. I had no issues with the weight and I liked its thickness for my style of game. I like a traditional paddle, and the G6 provides more control at the net and enables me to return volley shots quickly and reset for a return hit. I own a Tempest Wave and enjoy that this is another paddle in the Paddletek family. If I were recommending either of these paddles, honestly both could be good choice depending on your seriousness of play and budget. The Phoenix G6 played up to my expectations, and for the value it's an exceptional paddle for a beginner or advanced player. I had no issues serving or performing at the net. I tried quite a few touch shots and gained a lot of confidence when using this paddle. Another aspect I heard about upon receiving the Phoenix G6 was the quietness of play. I've never been bothered by pickleball noise, but I've read articles about communities and players disliking pickleball sounds. So I paid more attention to my hits and could tell a difference in the softer noise of this paddle. I hope this review helps anyone who is interested in purchasing a Phoenix G6. If you are new to pickleball then give PickleballCentral a call as they have trained staff who can assist in finding a paddle right for your style of play, and don’t forget about their 30-day test period on paddle purchases."

"I’ve been playing pickleball for about a year and a half and am a recreational player. I haven’t tried many different paddles, but when I played with the Phoenix G6 Composite by Paddletek, the first thing I noticed was the handle and grip. The paddle fit my hand much better than other paddles I've played with and has a balanced feel to it. The G6 was comfortable and gave me control and power in my shots. I was able to generate significant spin on the ball while also placing dinks where I wanted them. The weight of the paddle was a little heavier than what I’ve used in the past, but it was still easy to maneuver when in long, close up rallies at the net. I liked the weight of the paddle when serving as it provided plenty of power and touch along with the control I enjoy. I had no issues with the baseline play of this paddle but most of my play is at the net. The price of the paddle also makes it an excellent value."

"I've been playing pickleball for over two years after playing tennis for over forty. I played with the Paddletek Phoenix G6 and found it to be very responsive, but the grip was probably better suited for someone with a larger hand. When talking to some of the other women in our club, they liked everything about the paddle except the thickness of the grip. The paddle was otherwise excellent for all aspects of the game: serving, dinks, both forehand and backhand shots and volleys at the net. I noticed that I could generate more spin with this paddle. The sound of the ball hitting the paddle was less noisy than my current paddle, which is a Paddletek Tempest Wave. The thing I liked most was the 'feel' I had hitting the ball, especially putting spin on it. The Phoenix G6 has both power and touch. I would highly recommend it to a beginner or a beginner seeking to upgrade to a mid-range paddle as I think it's an excellent choice for the price. Not only does it play well but the graphics and five color selections add great value. Paddletek has a wide selection of paddles and the Phoenix G6 is definitely an excellent mid-range selection."

Phoenix G6 paddle

I got this paddle because it was a bit lighter than my previous paddle. I thought it might be easier on my shoulder that has a rotator cuff tear. But it doesn't have the ping and power that I was hoping for, and I find I have to hit harder. But I feel like I have pretty good control with it. It's pretty. :)

I have now ordered 2 of these paddles, one for me and one for a friend. I love my purple paddle! I appreciated the speedy delivery and the personal note. I have yet to see my game improve but that has nothing to do with the paddle :)
