Questions & Answers
How do I know which paddle is right for me?
We’ll try to keep this as short and sweet as possible without confusing anyone!
Wooden paddles: As wood is heavier than composite materials such as carbon fibre, their handles and body are made a bit smaller in order to offer the best match between weight and ease of play. Traditional paddles are wooden and are a GREAT entry point for any new or recreational player.
Glass Fibre Paddles: These offer the most ‘pop’ or strength as glass fiber is a very hard surface. It’s lightweight allows you to play with strength for long periods of time without experiencing too much fatigue.
Carbon Fiber Paddles: Carbon fibre allows the impact of the ball to be well distributed throughout the paddle head. This means that the ‘sweat spot’ on your racket is much larger and allows you to make hard shots with more ease. It’s textured surface also allows for better ball control and spin for experienced players.
In short….. picking a paddle will depend on your budget, skill level and general preference !
