    Third Head Paddle I've Owned
    09/09/2022
    Having used Head racquets for racquetball and squash I've used Head paddles since I started pickleball some 3 years ago (radical pro) and have found them to be a very good all purpose paddle. They have a textured surface that produces a good spin and a large enough sweet spot for overheads and net rallies. I bought the max for a bit of additional weight (about 0.4 ounces greater) to give me a bit more control and, at first, it felt almost too heavy. But by the third day of use it was if I've always played with it. For the advanced intermediate player (I'm 3.5/4.0 depending upon who you ask ) it is all I need. I know I could buy a paddle that costs 2 or more times as much, be lighter, have different core, etc. but unless you are a true tournament player this Head paddle (and similar ones) is all you need. I believe that vast majority of PB players in my age group (70+) won't play any better with an expensive paddle as athletic ability is more important. But they may want a lighter paddle if they have arm/shoulder issues.
