Guardian II Widebody Composite Pickleball Paddle

Ground-breaking "Chemically Bonded Textured Skin" Delivers Control with Power

The Guardian II Widebody Paddle proves that asking for more size doesn’t mean you’re stuck with less finesse. The Guardian II features a complete new combination of an advanced "Core" with the industry's first "chemically bonded textured skin" to create a paddle that is like no other on the market. The goal of the paddle in testing was to create a combination of face and core that could essentially allow you to 'feel' the ball on the face, giving you unheard of control in shot placement, without sacrificing power. This paddle was developed with the maximum amount of surface area allowed by the USAPA while still providing a perfectly controlled experience. Using a soft polymer core and aerodynamic shape, pickleballs stay against this paddle’s face for a longer period of time so you can set up dangerously accurate shots.

The Guardian II Widebody Paddle is exactly what you need if you’re tired of slammers beating their way through a game. The wide face gives you a spacious sweet spot and plenty of room to deflect and defuse fast hits, with just the right amount of texture to counter with spin. This paddle is a broad 8-1/2” wide with a 5” handle length, and features a medium sized ultra comfortable 4-1/4" grip. It ranges from 7.8 – 8.2 oz in weight so that it gives you “pop” when needed.

The Guardian II Widebody Paddle is certain to protect you from savage slams while pushing your precision to a higher level.

Available in the following colors: blue, pink, purple, green, metallic and red.

Superb customer service January 27, 2017
Reviewer: Clarence Rainwater from Palm Bay, FL United States  
I bought this paddle and tried it out for several sessions on both indoor and outdoor courts. I already own an Engage Encore Lite and the Guardian II is both heavier and wider. Though it was satisfactory it was not the paddle for me so I called customer service and arranged to return it and ordered in its place an Engage Encore Composite Pro. The transaction was incredibly smooth and hassle free and I'm looking forward to reviewing my new Encore Pro as soon as I am provided with a link. Pickleball Central is the best place to purchase your pickleball equipment and accessories. Thank you!

New feel good paddle! November 9, 2016
Reviewer: Dougie Loftus from Pt. St. Lucie, FL United States  
This paddle has a bit more feel then the Encore and a little less pop. I use it outdoors with the dura fast ball and use the Encore indoors.

Guardian ll Widebody Composite Pickleball Paddle October 9, 2016
Reviewer: Ray Setzke from Wimauma, FL United States  
Best paddle ever.  Textured surface leads to better control of all shots.  Hard surface helps rebound effect on hits.  My backhand speed has increased  by 20%.

A Light Wide Body October 7, 2016
Reviewer: Side Out Sam from Mid-Atlantic  
Wide body means bigger sweet spot. Light means faster setups to hit the ball, but more demanding accuracy. My heavy wide body is slower to swing, but puts the ball where I want it. I'm hoping a stronger shoulder will get optimum use of the Guardian II. As far as spin, I get a little more, nothing dramatic.

Guardian II Widebody Composite paddle October 6, 2016
Reviewer: BILL N from ANAHEIM, CA United States  
Paddle lacked the POP that I was hoping for when I purchased it. It is a good paddle for dinking, but  for longer hits farther back in the court I need to hit the ball with a lot of force if I am trying  to hit a passing shot to the back of the court of my opponent.
