Volair Mach 1 Carbon Fiber Signature Pickleball Paddle
Devloped under the watchful eye of company co-founder and pro player Julian "Andiamo!" Arnold, the Volair Mach 1 Carbon Fiber Paddle is designed to help you control the match by dominating play near the kitchen. The 11" by 7.5" T700 Raw Carbon Fiber face offers a textured hitting surface that causes the ball to linger, allowing you to impart spin and place dinks precisely. The 14mm (0.55") and 16mm (0.63") thicknesses allow you to back up this distinct control with extra feel (16mm) or a smidge more power (14mm). No matter which thickness better suits your game, the 5.5" handle allows you to use different grips throughout a match, including two handed backhands for big drives. Further, leverage, and therefore swing weight and power, are delivered courtesy of the 16.5" overall length of the Mach 1.
When deciding which thickness of the Mach 1 Carbon Fiber Paddle works best for you, it is important to look at the weight difference. The 14mm weighs in at a maneuverable 7.5 oz., while the 7.9 oz. weight of the 16mm paddle further encourages confidence in your control game. Both thicknesses boast a polypropylene honeycomb core that dampens vibrations and mutes sounds to mitigate injuries and keep you focused. With keen attention to detail, the Mach 1 features a secure edge guard that adds durability, and a cushion performance grip that wicks sweat while you dominate hands-battles near the kitchen.

I used to play with a Vision 14m and really liked it. Then tried the Volair 14m and love the consistency across the face of the paddle. All around very solid paddle. Power/feel combo is excellent. Very gritty too.
