Z5 Composite Paddle

The Z5 Composite Pickleball Paddle by Onix is a heavier version of the ultra-popular Graphite Z5 paddle. Virtually identical in all aspects (except for material, construction and weight), this paddle is a great choice for players who want a little extra oomph behind their hits. The solid Nomex honeycomb core provides a sturdy foundation for play on the fiberglass face. The face is covered with a graphic similar to cells, and then topped with a giant “Z” and a “5” in flourishing text.

The Composite Z5 paddle provides lots of power, thanks to its weight of 8.4-9.2 ounces. The paddle is 8-1/8” wide when measured from side to side, and 15-1/2” long from the top of the edge guard to the end of the handle. The handle is a good length of 5”, providing just enough length for reach without seeming overly-long. It is wrapped with a black perforated cushion grip, which makes the grip circumference on this paddle a medium size.

After playing just once with this fantastic paddle, it will be evident why so many people consider the Z5 Composite paddle to be one of the best paddles produced.

Z5 Opinion March 10, 2018
Reviewer: Daren Griffin from Fortson, GA United States  
I chose this paddle because description stated small grip and weight of close to 8oz. The grip is large and weight was 9.3oz
causing control of ball problems. It does have a powerful pop for slams. It is also loud. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your review of the Z5 Composite paddle. We apologize for the wrong grip size on our page. It is true that the grip size is now 4 ¼”. The composite paddle is the heaviest of the Z5 paddles and has a weight range of 8.4-9.2. The Graphite Z5 has a weight range of 7.5-8.2. And any paddle with a Nomex core will be loud. Please let us know if you would like to return the paddle for refund or exchange.
Thank you PickleballCentral. I am sticking with this Z5. I want to note I have only played this game for a couple of months and for me using the same paddle brings consistency to the way the ball reacts to contact.

Z5 Composite Paddle February 13, 2018
Reviewer: J Nelson from Wyoming, MN United States  
I started with a graphite paddle and as my skill progessed I was looking for a heavier paddle with good shot control. The composite Z8 has worked well for me. More power and control comes with slightly less ability to put spin on the ball. I really like this paddle.

Ordered the paddle and received it two days later. There were no issues with the paddle's condition.

Love the weight especially for outdoor play.  Hot pink color looks great and easy to pick out.  Would buy again.
