The Element Pickleball Paddle is one of the most popular paddles produced by Paddletek. Quite similar to the Phoenix Pro in terms of size, this lighter paddle will allow players to impart spin on their hits without losing any vital power. When the oversized hitting area is combined with the lightest possible weight, players achieve maximum maneuverability and quickness. This paddle features a polymer core specifically developed by the manufacturer for pickleball. Over the top of the core lies a fiberglass face, which is then finished by screenprinted graphics. The geometric design on the face of this paddle features the letter “P” in contrasting colors, as well as the words “element” and “paddletek”.
The Element paddle weighs 7.5 to 7.8 ounces, which classifies it as a middleweight paddle. Middleweight paddles tend to provide the best combination of weight and control. The 7-3/4” wide face gives players a respectable amount of hitting surface. The paddle has a total length of 15-5/8”, 5-1/8” of which is comprised of the handle. The grip has a smaller circumference and is slightly cushioned. The Paddletek paddles have the smallest edge guard of any paddle manufacturer, it overlapping only 1/8” of the face.
