Elite Pro Composite Pickleball Paddle
The EngagePickleball Elite Pro Pickleball Paddle was created with direct input from top pickleball players to give players even more power, spin, reach and feel. It was introduced right before the 2017 US Open where 9 players used it for the first time and all of them won their matches! The fact that these pros could adapt to the new paddle so quickly and all come out on top speaks volumes about the quality of this paddle.
Despite its fiberglass face, the Elite Pro plays much like a graphite paddle thanks to its unique chemically bonded skin that they've termed "liquid graphite". It is available in both a standard weight (7.8-8.3 oz) and "lite" weight (7.5-7.8 oz) version. We can't guarantee you'll win with this paddle, but its track record is impressive and it can't hurt!

Paddle does not hit well, poor control and it's very loud. The older elite pro paddles are way better; these new paddles do not feel, hit or sound the same---I def would not recommend these clear paddles(the ruby reds etc..with the target sign). They seem to be cheaply made---please go back to the older models that you have posted on your site. If you do not carry the older models then please take down the pics because they are misleading and false advertising. I did not get the red and black elite pro that I ordered, instead I was sent this clunking junk of a paddle.
I really like the weight, handle and grip and the texture on the surface I do wish it had a larger sweet spot in the middle as the response of the ball is sometimes inconsistent during repetitive light shots that just clear the net but over all i'm very pleased and the people that i play pickle ball with seemed impressed with it's feel and look
