The Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle is a top-of-the-line paddle backed by immense amounts of research. The fiberglass face provides a sturdy structure for hours of play while the Nomex honeycomb core sits inside the paddle surrounded by a Live Periphery TM Frame. This border encompasses the sides of the core, acting as a shield to protect it from developing dead spots. On top of this border lies a Flush-Fit TM Bumper, which is flat against the surface of the face to remove the possibility of mis-hitting due to the edge guard. The words “Gamma” and “ION” are found on the lower left side of the paddle’s face and are set atop of a round-celled background with a blue tint.
The average Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle weighs in lighter from 7.2 to 7.5 ounces, providing players with great touch and maneuverability. The paddle is nice and wide, measuring 8-1/8” across the face. From the top of the face to the bottom of the handle, the paddle measures 15-1/2” long and has a 5-1/8” long handle. The Unibody Handle TM molds the face with the handle into one solid piece, aiming to increase your connection with the paddle. Wrapped in a Gamma PB Contour Grip, this paddle’s grip has a smaller circumference than average.
The Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle is a great paddle for those who want a lightweight paddle with an enormous hitting area.
