Love the new paddle. Glad that I could choose the weight. The 7 .1 weight allows quick movement to manoeuvre the paddle into position. I tried the big brother Bantam but it was too heavy so I'm glad they decided to make a lighter version. Also the larger sweet spot allows for better contact and less missed shots. The surface allows for maximum spin on cut shots. Due to the light weight there's less wrist fatigue from long play. The handle could be a bit longer but I have already adjusted to that after a week of play. I already had a great paddle but am glad I spent the money on this one. Ordered it on Tuesday afternoon and had it in my hand on Thursday afternoon...great service from the Depot. Very satisfied.

I love my new paddle
From the moment a friend let me try this paddle I knew I wanted to have my own. I like everything about it, its weight, balance, surface and overall feel. I am very happy with my purchase. It is, in my opinion, a very good value for the price. My wife tried it and now wants one. I must also say that I was impressed with the service, professionalism and fast delivery from PickleBall Depot.
Excellent produit et super service de PickleBall Dépot. Je n'hésite aucunement à reccommander cet achat.

It's nice and light weight. The narrow black frame ensure a larger paddle area.

My wife and I have only begun to play. We find the Light TS-5 perfect for our game. We would recommend it to any player.

I showed my new paddle to one of our teachers and he said "hey, you bought a good one, it's had good reviews".

Enjoying my new "Magic Wand"
I require a new paddle about every 8 months, I like them light, with good "steering", because let's face it you need everything going for you out on that court! This new Bantam PaddleTek seems to be helping me improve my games where necessary. Makes me look like I know what I'm doing... my husband says, honey "It's not the wand, it's the magician". And I say that it really helps to have the best Magic Wand....

I have tried many paddles including Gearbox , Riverstyks, POP as well as the more well-known makers and the Paddletek TS-5 is my everyday paddle. The weight, balance, control, power just seem to suit my game. A number of friends have also tried the TS-5 and 3 have purchased it.

Paddletek Bantam TS-5
Bought Paddle from Bryan Friday April 29th, practiced 4 times, then won my section at Kelowna Indoor Tournament May 7th. The guy that came second also used same make and model. We are both showing our paddles in the picture, but as we are both right handed the printing is upside down. Love the paddle.

Paddleteck Bantam TS-5
Excellent prompt accommodating service. Purchased several racquets from this client centred business, and will continue to do so!
Still prefer the regular bantam, over the TS-5 as it provides more control and less pop.
Appreciate the lighter weight of this paddle less strain on forearm with frequent use.
