Vulcan V520 Control Pickleball Paddle

The Vulcan V520 Control Pickleball Paddle is for players who want a high amount of control and need a touch-centric paddle to support their game. You'll feel more connected thanks to its balanced shape and sensitive polypropylene core. It has a sleek taper near the bottom for more speed, and the grip has enough tack so you can move quickly without losing stability.

The Vulcan V520 Control Pickleball Paddle has a medium grip and uses a fiberglass face to further improve its feel. Even shots near the edge of the face are unlikely to jostle your guard or affect the angle of your returns. The sweet spot is pleasantly reactive and will allow you to catch opponents off guard while creating openings.

The Vulcan V520 Control Pickleball Paddle lets players guide the flow of the game and ensures the ball goes where intended.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8"

    I like this paddle


  • Poor construction

    The paddle felt great and the face allowed me to put a good amount of spin on the ball. Unfortunately, the first paddle delaminated after about 5 weeks, and the replacement paddle broke just above the handle after 3 days. Customer service was great to work with.

    Been playing a couple of months and needed a bit more control. The Vulcan V520 answered the call. My strokes improved, and I can make more placements now. Confidence level is up, as well. No regrets buying this paddle.


  • Loving it!

    A nice paddle! Pickleball Central helped me out when there was a slight defect, but I am excited to see what damage I can do with this baby on the court!

    I was trying to replicate old paddle. Service rep dug for answers and finally determined they no longer make that paddle. But she then went the extra mile and asked a longer term employee for the closest comparable paddle. I purchased it and was very pleased to find almost no difference in size, weight, shape etc. Plus it was shipped immediately and arrived 2 days later!!! Excellent service, excellent shipping time.

    Love my paddle, it’s the second Vulcan paddle I’ve purchased. I have one complaint. On both paddles, on the bottle of the paddle handle there is a round Vulcan logo “glued” on. I’ve already lost the one from the first paddle and the second one I reglued myself. It was loose from day one. That’s all, so I would look into malfunction.
