I have been playing with this paddle for about 3 weeks now and play about 4 times per week. The Combat is on par with my other 2 favourite paddles of choice and sells for about $ 80 less than both of them. The Dagger is attractive, very well made, reinforced handle, great T700 face, nice neutral balance, about 8oz. my preferred 16x8 shape. This paddle plays quite similar to my CRBN2 and Tempest Wave Pro in balance, swing weight and control. It has maybe a little more power but still very controllable. The T700 face will bite the ball and provide easy access to spin. This is a BMW at a Chevy price. Well done Combat.
The depot let us try a few paddles before we decided on the combat dagger. So a shout out to the staff at the Vernon depot. Thanks for the help and advice.
The Dagger is slightly heavier than my old paddle it's made quite a difference. Feels great in my hand and I'm able to return shots in the court. On a more regular basis. To be honest we tried the more expensive brands and found no real difference. But that's a personal choice based on the users preferences. I would recommend this paddle for a beginner to intermediate player such as myself.
Great price for a carbon fiber paddle.
The whole experience of buying a new pickleball racket was great 👍 I loved trying out all the different paddles thanks for you patience with me and I am very happy with my new Combat Dagger
Comfortable paddle for me. I just need to get better.
Feedback on the Combat Dagger:
I have 3 favourite paddles and can move from one to the other with virtually no adjustment time. Combat Dagger does not take a back seat to either the CARB2 or the Tempest Wave Pro. The Dagger punches well above its price point and did not appear to cut corners on quality of build.
I've been playing with CRBN this last year and previously played with the Combat arrow. This Dagger is a real keeper. It plays very similar to my CRBN even though the core is 3mm thinner. Real good control, spin, build quality (especially handle) quiet and looks at a great price. Zero transition time needed from my CRBN to play with the DAGGER. I am very pleased with this paddle and your customer service. Cheers,
