Champion Aluminum Core Pickleball Paddle

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

An upgrade on the first generation Champion Alumin January 3, 2017
Reviewer: Keith James from Gig Harbor, WA United States  
I played with a Champion Aluminum paddle for two years and then switched to a Legacy.  Both paddles are excellent: the Legacy fiberglass hard and hard plastic honeycomb has pop and lively power to burn but the paddle requires a player's touch--the ChampionAluminum is soft with excellent control, but one has to provide the power with good technique and quick hands.  This new Champion Aluminum brides the gap between my two favorite paddles.  It is now my go-to paddle.  Plenty of tough and lots of pop, more than the original--the absolute best of both worlds.

Reviewer: Michael Vincent from Black Hawk, CO United States  
I thought I would try a paddle with an aluminum core and I like it.  It takes a bit of getting used to however.

Beginner PB player September 26, 2016
Reviewer: MF from Bend, OR United States  
This is the paddle that was recommended for me as a beginner player & I am very satisfied with it.  Might not be the lightest as I handle others , but I feel I am able to control the ball with it.
