ProKennex Kinetic Black Ace LG Pickleball Paddle
Designed for, and with the help of, ProKennex pro pickleball player (and world #1 ranked racquet ball player) Daniel de la Rosa, the Kinetic Black Ace LG paddle adds a long-handled option to the super popular Black Ace Pro paddle. The pink and white color scheme, as Daniel's professional colors, look pretty great, too. To earn the "LG" in the name (long grip), this paddle offers a super-extended 5.87" handle wrapped in a high-tack thin grip that adds leverage to overhead put-aways and encourages two-handed backhands. The "long" theme continues into the elongated 10.5" by 7.3" Toray Carbon Fiber hitting surface. This surface offers impressive stiffness and texture that grabs pickleballs and imparts dastardly spin on technical shots.
The long handle and 16.4" overall length of the Black Ace LG teams up with the 11mm (0.43") thin polypropylene honeycomb core for impressive power. The patented Kinetic technology absorbs and disperses impact vibrations, making ProKennex the only paddle brand on the market specifically working to mitigate arm and join injuries using materials science. Additionally, the Air-O-Guard flush-mounted edge guard system protects the paddles edges while improving aerodynamics, and is completely replaceable. Finally, the 7.9 ounce static weight allows players to reload quickly, and achieve higher swing speeds to put shots away with minimal effort.
The Kinetic Black Ace LG Paddle from ProKennex Pickleball is a distinctly powerful paddle for players who seek extra reach, wield two-handed ground strokes, and pride themselves in punishing high dinks.

I’m in love with this paddle! I’m a 57 yo woman who needs the extra power this paddle adds. Balls fly off its face, and there is no dead spot. This is my second Black Ace. I also own the XF. The kinetic technology keeps my elbow from hurting. Can’t imagine ever using another paddle!
