The Graphite Slammer is a lightweight graphite paddle with an extended handle compared to its’ sister paddle, the Graphite Stryker
. This paddle was one of the first created by Steve Wong's company, Onix Sports, and is a proven winner. It is used by players at every level of ability, but because of the great price and smaller grip, this paddle is one of our favorites to recommend for young people. The black graphite paddle face is screen printed with a snake head about to bite into a pickleball. The graphite version of the Slammer paddle has a slightly textured face, allowing the ball to come off with fantastic spin. The cushioned grip ensures that your hand will be able to play without pain.
The Slammer Graphite paddle is the traditional pickleball paddle shape. The width of this paddle’s face is 7-5/8” and the full paddle is 15-1/2” long. This lightweight paddle weighs in between 6.3 to 6.8 ounces, making it the perfect weight for young players or those struggling with chronic shoulder, wrist or elbow joint issues. The long 5-3/8” handle gives you a longer reach, and the grip circumference is a great middle-of-the-road size.
