Prince Pickleball Response Pro Paddle
The Response Pro paddle is an innovation in the world of pickleball because of its rounded shape. This design provides players with a large sweet spot with a soft touch, allowing a firm grip on the paddle. Players can generate a lot of power in every swing while maintaining control of direction and speed thanks to the thick polymer core. Prince pro Simone Jardim used the Response Pro during her historic run at the 2018 US Open in Naples, FL. She won four gold medals and collected the "Triple Crown" by taking the top spot in Open Pro Women's Doubles, Mixed Doubles, and Women's Singles.
The Response Pro Paddle is 8.25" wide with a slim edge guard. This gives players the largest possible usable space. Player testers have remarked that the performance feels consistent from side to side, neck to tip. This is thanks to what many say is the largest sweet spot they've experienced. The handle length is 5.5" which allows for plenty of room for a two- handed backhand (like Simone) and an extended reach across the court. The Response Pro is available in either 4 1/8" or 4 3/8" grip size as well as several weights to best suit playing style. The paddle graphic features the Prince "P" over a zigzag pattern.
The broad face of the Response Pro paddle allows players the chance to return any shot that comes their way with plenty of speed, control, and pop. It is available in light (7.2 - 7.6 oz) or standard weight (7.7 - 8.3 oz). Also available with small or large grip size. Chose from blue, green, purple, or orange. Note: red and blue paddles feature Simone Jardim's signature in the graphic, orange and purple do not.
