The Kronos Raw from AMA Sport leans more towards being a power paddle and is very stable when resetting at the kitchen.
Paddle Reviews for Casual & Recreational Players
Pickleball players want a good paddle at a reasonable price. A paddle that will deliver the most dinks per dollar. Find your next favorite paddle at Gen X Dinks.
The Joola Heleus performs well in the cold and is worth the price if you play outside year-round.
The Selkirk Pro S1 pickleball has a 38-hole design and a 1-year no-crack warranty. It plays very well in cold weather but can lose its shape when played on hard surfaces in warmer conditions.
The Core Reaction Pro MX-1000 is a good all-around paddle, however, it needs a new handle. I struggled to play more than two back-to-back games with it.
The Pursuer from Bond Pickleball surprised me with its performance, pop & power.
I've heard a lot of hype around the Six Zero Double Black Diamond and after playing with it I think it deserves all the hype it's received.
