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.

    Loved it immediately. Kept my power and the touch was little better. Made the grip bigger with wraps to prevent tennis elbow of course.

    I initially loved it, but after a few sessions, I realized I was making more unforced errors. I think the extra length & power contributed to this. I'm returning and going with Pro Flight and my old Pro Speed II. Hoping the Pro Flight will give me a little extra power over the Speed II but not as much as The Black Ace. I'm a 3.5 + player.

    Great paddle. Love the power but still has great feel for the soft game.

    Outstanding right out of the box. Definitely a power paddle, but control is much better than some reviews I’ve read about this paddle. Light with ability to reposition quickly after striking the ball. Not as loud as it’s reputation said it was.
