Mid-Heavyweight/Medium Grip

ProXR Advantage Blackout Series 16 Composite Paddle

The Advantage Blackout Series 16 Pickleball Paddle from ProXR provides power, with a noticeable measure of control thanks to its thick 16mm (0.63") polymer honeycomb core. The design takes its cue from the original ProXR Advantage Composite Paddle but extends the length, narrows the width a tad, and reshapes the neck to move the sweet spot up the paddle face a bit. Players will love the controllable feel, while benefitting from the pop and consistent feedback it offers. The paddle retains the patented XR-23 angled handle, and puts its textured fiberglass face to work on your cuts and slices for exceptional spin.

The Advantage Blackout 16 Paddle is 16.5" length which makes it perfect for generating power on passing shots and dynamic serves. The sweet spot is extended throughout most of the surface area, and while you'll get the best response near the top of the paddle it will still react reliably even when you're not hitting dead center. Its weight range is 8.0 – 8.4 oz. which contributes to quick put-aways. The handle is 5.5" long to allow for double-handed backhands, and the 4.25" grip circumference has a cushioned and tacky feel. ProXR's revolutionary handle design also contributes to enhanced spin, ball exit velocity, and reload back to center thanks to its unique angled style.

The Advantage Blackout Series 16 Composite Fiberglass Paddle from ProXR will improve your precision and help you retain consistent power with less fatigue.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

    The good: Love the offset handle. Provides better reach and comfort. Surface grit provides really good spin out of the gate. The bad: Offset handle forces player to keep same side of paddle oafter 6-8 weeks of play, the paddle on your forehand. Consequently, the sweet spot on the forehand side has really worn the grit down, losing spin capability. An advanced player I showed it to also commented they thought the surface was coming off the core, as well.

  • Crazy pop and control

    This is one of the best paddles on the market. The way the ball flys off the paddle and still has control is insane
