Champion Aluminum Core Pickleball Paddle

You SAVE $25 Off MSRP of $74.99

The New and Improved Champion Aluminum Core Pickleball Paddle is the same great paddle as the popular Graphite Champion, except filled by an aluminum core instead of Nomex and topped with a fiberglass face rather than graphite. This aluminum core offers players more touch and connectedness to their paddle, while the fiberglass face improves control without sacrificing power. The aluminum core is fabricated in a honeycomb pattern and then layered with smooth pieces of fiberglass to create an incredibly responsive paddle that will react to every slight move.

The Composite Aluminum Champion paddle has an extremely wide face; when measured from one side to the other, it is 8 1/8” wide. It is 15-3/4” long from top to bottom and has an average length grip at 4 7/8”. The cushion grip measures smaller than average. The weight is universally well-liked, beginning at 7.3 ounces and hitting 8.0 ounces at the heaviest.

The Champion Aluminum Core Pickleball Paddle has undergone a makeover and now features a screen printed grid-like pattern overlapping the classic fiberglass-colored face. The Pickleball Inc. logo is located at the top, just above “CHAMPION SERIES”. The type of paddle is noted at the bottom left, with text reading “ALUMINUM”. The cushion grip combined with an oversized face makes this paddle a real winner. The Champion Aluminum Core Pickleball Paddle is a power-packed paddle sure to bring home the gold.

Available in the following colors: Riptide and Ultraviolet

Skill to Next Level July 10, 2018
Reviewer: Stanley Smee from Jackson, MO United States  
Male with medium hands.  Previously used a lightweight Graphite paddle that had been preforming satisfactorily.  Had added about a half ounce of magnetic tape on the edge to bring the weight up to about 7.8 oz.

New champion paddle has aluminum core with fiberglass surface with just a "tad" of drag on the surface.  For me, it allows for a better defense of the "paddleball/tennis" folks that use a significant amount of spin on their Strikes.  

Weighs 7.8 oz

It also gives a significant increase in Placement strikes when defending.

Great Value for the Cost!

Great paddle, great service! May 10, 2018
Reviewer: David Lytle from San Antonio, TX United States  
My wife and I really like the control and response of these old model aluminum paddles and were happy to get two more on sale!  I hope they'll still be in stock when I need another renewal!
Delivery was very prompt and paddles are performing as expected.
Thanks PBCentral!
