ProXR Zane Navratil Raw Carbon Control 14mm Paddle
Video review with pickleball pro Brandon Nsekpong:
The Zane Navratil Signature 14mm Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle is designed to provide you with the same match-dominating control that Zane demands. This control starts with the 10" x 7.5" Ultra Raw T700 carbon fiber face that offers minimal give and plenty of friction, causing the ball to compress and sit on the face for an extended period of time. This extended contact allows you to put excessive spin on cut shots and feel in control more often. Not to be outdone, the 14mm (0.55") thick polypropylene honeycomb core limits vibrations and enhances the sweet spot to help you put more shots exactly where you want them to go.
To complement all of the control elements found on the ProXR Zane Navratil Carbon 14mm paddle, ProXR packed it with a little bit of a punch by including an ultra-extended 6" long handle wrapped in a Performance-Tac grip, allowing you to get plenty of leverage and swing speed behind the 8.2 oz. weight. That high-speed feel will help you create power on your slams and drives, such that you can punish players you lull into believing you are all about slow, strategic play.
If you desire control and feel from all positions on the court, then the Zane Navratil Carbon 14mm paddle from ProXR Pickleball may just be the pickleball paddle for you.

Excellent racket, with good strength and control

Paddle had a nice balance to it. Definitely could generate additional spin vs Engage. Was disappointed with the quality of the grip very generic. No ribbing or tackiness.

The handle is comfortable and small in diameter. Plenty of power in this 14mm paddle. Great graphics and unique looking edge guard.

Love my new Zane paddle. I can create a ton of spin, plenty of power, and I feel much more in control of my drops and drives. When dinking or standing at the kitchen line, I’m able to reach many more balls than before and still get the pace and angles I want…most of the time lol. The weight is great and when blocking hard drives the paddle is very sturdy. Has been an excellent paddle so far and I highly recommend it. This paddle easily brought me from a 4.25 to a 4.30 lol

I bought this paddle at the launch in Mesa with MLP. Love playing with it, the longer handle also doesn't make it feel like it's 8.2 oz. I’ve own the regular Proxr and love them and with the new slim handle for eastern grip they are awesome on the volley.
