Z5 Graphite Pickleball Paddle

Graphite Z5 Pickleball Paddles are extremely popular in the pickleball world. They have a solid feel that is very attractive to pickleball players. You'll see the Z5 Graphite in the hands of players at the highest level of competition.

This superior-quality paddle has a classic pickleball shape and is well-balanced in the hand for great control and winning hits. The Graphite Z5 has a large hitting area thanks to its 8-1/8 wide face, which means the sweet spot on this paddle is big as well. This paddle weighs between 7.5 to 8.2 ounces- many players enjoy playing with paddles that fall within this range.

The giant distinctive Z on the paddle face is screen printed right onto the woven black graphite face. With a honeycomb graphic background, the Z5 pickleball paddle has a stunning design. The handle length is 5". Please note the manufacturer has changed the grip over the years, and the brand shown in our product image may not be the same as the style currently being sold.

The sheer number of glowing reviews for this paddle stands to prove that choosing the Graphite Z5 paddle is a fantastic decision youll never regret making.

Available in the following colors: yellow, purple, red, white, pink, green, blue and orange.

Hi, this is Steve Wong from Onix Pickleball. Were here at the US Open. Im here to talk about the Z5 Graphite Widebody paddle. This is a mid-weight paddle. This is great for beginner, intermediate and advanced players. This is one of the first paddles that I developed. It has the widebody face. Its a medium weight great for hitting ground strokes and nice volleys at the net. It has great power and one of the first designs that are widebody out there. It was the most popular paddle sold at PickleballCentral in 2015 and you can get yours at PickleballCentral. Thank you.

Im Steve Wong with Onix Sports. Im here at the Pickleball Central warehouse in Kent Washington. Im here to talk about to you about the Graphite Z5 and the Composite Z5. Both are great paddles. They are two of the most popular paddles at Onix Sports. The Graphite paddle is about 7 to 8 ounces. Its um, one of our medium weight paddles as well. This paddle is a great paddle for touch. It has the wide-body surface so that you have a bigger sweet spot. Its one of the most popular paddles, like I said. Many people that convert over from tennis enjoy this paddle because of the wider hitting surface. Um, this is by far one of the most popular paddles that we sell. The other paddle that I have in my hand is a Composite Z5. Its really good for singles. It has more power than the Graphite model. It weighs about 8.9 ounces, for this one, but the range is usually between 8 and 9 ounces. This paddle has a sharp design. It really stands out on the court. Like I said its really good with the power and the long strokes, especially in singles. It has that wide body feel as well that tennis players or racquet ball players love. This is one of the top paddles out there as well. So check em out. Theyre Onix Sports paddles and you can purchase them at

Hi, Im Heidi Wong with Onix Sports and today I have the Graphite Z5 paddle. The nice thing about this, is that it has a wide body, gives you a large sweet spot to hit that ball accurately. Graphite is nice because it gives you that control and touch that a lot of people really need when they play that net game in pickleball.

Thank you.

Reviewer: Allan from Camarillo, CA United States  
It's a very nice paddle. It gives me better shot control.
I bought a 7.7 ounce. The next one I buy will be a bit heavier, I need more power when I serve.
I hope this helps.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Estero, FL United States  
I haven't tried the paddle yet because I twisted my knee. Hopefully I can play soon and look forward to trying my new paddle. It was easy to use your web site to order the paddle. The price was competitive and the shipping arrived on time. I am very satisfied with the service

Reviewer: V Walters from Arizona  
I appreciated all the information on the website to help me choose the right paddle and am very pleased with my choice.  Even in the holiday rush, the paddle arrived in time and though I am definitely keeping the paddle, I appreciated the option to return it.
