Excellent purchase. Easy to order on line, and the delivery was exceptional, two days. I also needed to exchange which was facilitated seamlessly. Staff was very helpful. I genuinely felt cared for.
The paddle itself Is excellent. I purchased a 7.8 oz weight which for me provides a good power to quickness ratio. It has a great balanced feel and the handle is extremely comfortable. I have a Selkirk Invikta light weight paddle which is fantastic for a nice feel at the kitchen that absorbs the ball very. Power is good too. My wife has adopted it.
The Bantam EX-L in comparison has a bit more power which I am better at controlling. I also am
more adept at the soft game than I was a year ago making the Bantam EX-L a good paddle for my evolving game. I have won tournaments at a 4.0 level. My goal is to play at 5.0 and I believe the NEW ERA Paddletek Bantam EX-L will help me improve my game.
Thank you Pickleball Depot 😊.
