Like most, due to COVID unable to try out the racket at this time but the feel is good and comfortable. Wish I could give it a 5 but I will updater my review once I get to try it.
This paddle is a very well crafted solid choice at a price well below it's value. I have owned 3 top rated paddles from Selkirk, Paddle Tech, and Prolite all of which I extensively researched before buying. I enjoyed all of them but this Combat Arrow does not take a back seat to them. It is very well dampend and quite quiet. It offers all the power I need but in a very control oriented paddle. The balance is good and a great looking edge guard tape is also a nice touch. Also interesting graphics that so far seem durable. The Pickleball Depot staff are knowledgeable and great to deal with as well. A positive experience all the way around.
Friendly, efficient and helpful.
As a Canadian, I was very curious as to the quality and performance that a Canadian made paddle would have to offer. At first I was surprised at the price. I am like a lot of us out there, thinking how good could these paddles really be? The Arrow paddle weighed in at 8.0 which was a bit heavier than I was used to playing. However, the weight distribution of this paddle is slightly handle heavy, so the soft or touch game is light and sensitive but the added weight is still there when you need to create a solid firm shot. These paddles are perfectly balanced for tough competitive play yet offer great control for both the beginner and the pro. The carbon fibre face is highly responsive and durable, it will preserve the good looks of your paddle for years to come. With a large sweet spot putting away winners is much more successful. I now play Combat Arrow Graphic now and I’ve played them all!
I have used many other high-end popular paddle companies and always ran into the same problem. With every new paddle I played with I would break it in the handle within 2-3 months because of how hard I would hit the ball. Then I was introduced to combat paddle company and was impressed immediately, the feel of the paddle was amazing, the touch of the paddle was outstanding, but it did not sacrifice power at all. I won quite a few tournaments with the paddle and loved it. It took almost 9 months for me to even crack one of these paddles and when I did, I let the company know and they took amazing care of me getting me a new paddle asap. Overall this company is amazing the gear, paddles, and the owner so I can’t explain how excited I was when they announced the new carbon fiber paddle, I knew I needed one immediately and it took my game to a whole new level.
