The Paddletek Bantam is known of being a bit more lightweight than other paddles, which is ideal for quick-reacting players. That extra split second can make all the difference during a point.

Johns made the switch to upstart pickleball brand Joola in recent months after being the face of Franklin. Joola paddles are commonly known for having plenty of control and utilizing a carbon fiber frame capable of lasting for long periods.

Many professional players use Electrum paddles and Waters is probably the most known player for doing so. These paddles have long reaches which allows players to retrieve balls near The Kitchen easier than some others.

Tyson McGuffin is an extremely recognized talent on the men's pickleball tour. Selkirk and its designs offer more power than many competing products. The paddle's handle is also a bit longer and mimics that of a tennis racquet for players with bigger hands.

Gamma is becoming more of a common paddle in pickleball because of its long paddle face. It allows players to have extended reach both near The Kitchen and baseline.
