ProXR Advantage Blackout Series 14 Composite PaddleThe Advantage Blackout Series 14 Pickleball Paddle from ProXR is based on the original ProXR Advantage Composite Paddle but features a 14mm (0.55") poly core, and is slightly longer and narrower. This allows players to retain the strong "pop" of a fiberglass surface, but with more forgiveness and a softer feel thanks to its thick core material. ProXR's ergonomic angled handle only multiplies the reactivity of the face, by improving reaction time and hand speed, enhancing spin on slices and cuts, and honing your accuracy on placement shots.
The Advantage Blackout 14 Paddle gives players fantastic spin potential thanks to its gritty fiberglass surface. The weight ranges from 8.0 – 8.4 oz., placing it on the heavier end of the midweight spectrum. The handle length is 5.5" which offers enough room to use two hands, and has a 4.25" circumference. Its grip has a cushioned but tacky feel to improve your hold while preventing moisture from building up. An overall 16.5" length allows players to cover the entire court and dig out those frustrating shoe-high shots.
The Advantage Blackout Series 14 Composite Fiberglass Paddle from ProXR is the best fit for players who want power on demand, but with a measure of control that won't let you down.
Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

The 14mm Fiberglass face combined with the angled grip allows me to play with a ton of power while maintaining the control advantage from the grip. If you don't miss the sweet spot very much this paddle won't let you down and should only add to your game.

This paddle has a really good sweet spot. It has a lot of pop, spin, and control. Most of the time I've struggled switching paddles, but the transition to this paddle was really easy. Within three days of playing with this paddle I won a pro silver medal at a big APP tournament which I've never done before. This paddle has been a game changer for me.

The blackout series is amazing. The amount of spin Iâ€™ve been generating with this paddle is enhancing my play. The face is similar to the electrum/CRBN/engage and the 14mm gives it that extra pop. Great all around paddle, especially if you like to hit big
