ProKennex Kinetic Black Ace Pro Pickleball Paddle

The ProKennex Black Ace Pro Pickleball Paddle with Kinetic technology offers one attribute above all else, as compared to the rest of the ProKennex line, and that attribute is power. This sleek, aerodynamic paddle amplifies your power game while maintaining the level of control ProKennex paddles are known for. Its edgeless, molded, one-piece Toray carbon fiber design is one of a few new innovations from ProKennex. This advanced technology means the Black Ace paddles are incredibly durable. The textured Toray carbon fiber face material is also spin-friendly, much like other popular carbon fiber-faced paddles available today.

Unlike its Black Ace Ovation counterpart, the Black Ace Pro offers a classic paddle shape with approachable 15.8" by 7.6" overall dimensions that feel familiar. The power-boosting 11mm (0.43") thick polymer honeycomb core is augmented by the well-known Kinetic shock and vibration mitigation system inherent to all ProKennex pickleball paddles. A second innovation is the use of this Kinetic system, for the first time, inside of the 5.3" long handle that most effectively reduces vibrations from impacting a players joints or leading to muscle fatigue.

The Kinetic Black Ace Pro Pickleball Paddle from ProKennex adds an unexpected degree of power to your game, while offering a highly-reactive feel that is sure to help you win more points and play more aggressively than you ever have before.

  • Great Paddle!

    I received my new paddle a week ago and already love it! I'm a petite woman, therefore I requested the slightest weight paddle & Pickleball Central accommodated my request! The paddle has nice power & it didn't take long to find the sweet spot on the paddle. I believe it will help me raise the level of my game against hard hitting opponents. I highly recommend this paddle.

    Bought it to help my tennis elbow. It did really help it and I love this paddle. Power and really good control.

  • Durability

    I played with the original Black Ace and noticed it developed a rattle after a month of play. I was issued a replacement paddle and have used it several times and so far it seems to have maintained its pop and no rattle. Hopefully this was an isolated incident. I own a few ProKennex paddles and have been satisfied with all of them. Other than the concern about durability I would recommend the Black Ace for an advanced player.

    Powerful. Good control. Takes some getting used to if your used to thicker paddles that absorb impact.

    This paddle really elevated my game. I have only used it a few times, but I love it. I need to use better form with my top spin drives to keep it in, but with a lighter hit than usual, it still pops. And it’s very quick at the kitchen. I’m still learning how to put spin on the ball with this paddle. A big improvement over my last pro Kennex

    I had tried this paddle when a fellow. club member came with it one day. Loved it after one game. About four months later I finally got around to buying it, and I can’t get used to it. I will try adding led tape, but as of now, not the pop or spin I remember.

    5 stars for power, 4.5 stars for control, 3.0 stars for spin. Small not medium grip improved my play with this paddle. I am male, 5' 10" tall, 160 lb, overall medium sized person. Quicker slams and blocks. Drinking did not require swinging paddle to make shots. Arm lifting to return a dink was easy due to ball popping off the paddle. My game is improved.
