The Element Pickleball Paddle is one of the most popular paddles produced by Paddletek. Quite similar to the
Phoenix Pro in terms of size, this lighter paddle will allow players to impart spin on their hits without losing any vital power. When the oversized hitting area is combined with the lightest possible weight, players achieve maximum maneuverability and quickness. This paddle features a polymer core specifically developed by the manufacturer for pickleball. Over the top of the core lies a fiberglass face, which is then finished by screenprinted graphics. The geometric design on the face of this paddle features the letter “P” in contrasting colors, as well as the words “element” and “paddletek”.
The Element paddle weighs 7.5 to 7.8 ounces, which classifies it as a middleweight paddle. Middleweight paddles tend to provide the best combination of weight and control. The 7-3/4” wide face gives players a respectable amount of hitting surface. The paddle has a total length of 15-5/8”, 5” of which is comprised of the handle. The grip has a smaller circumference and is slightly cushioned. The Paddletek paddles have the smallest edge guard of any paddle manufacturer, it overlapping only 1/8” of the face.
Just one hit with the Element Paddle and there will be no question as to why this is such a well-loved paddle.
Available in the following colors: blue, red, yellow and pink (raspberry).
Please note: grips sizes are approximate

Hey, it’s Jennifer Lucore and I’m in Naples, Florida and I’m loving my Element. I actually play with two paddles. This would be a 2nd one I have as an option, and it has a bit more power for me so I like it in singles. The weight I like best is 7.5 ounces because you want to keep your arm happy so don’t get it too heavy. Have fun with the Element.

Hi, this is Curtis with Paddletek, introducing the Element, which is our biggest seller. It is a 7 ½ ounce paddle, polypropylene fiberglass composite. What makes it special is that it has a large sweet spot, but is very forgiving outside the sweet spot. So if you do miss your sweet spot, you probably won’t even know. It’s a great paddle, give it a try.

Hi, my name is Glen with PickleballCentral. Two of our favorite paddles here at PickleballCentral are the Paddletek Stratus and the Paddletek Element. The difference between the two paddles is the shape and the weight. These are fantastic paddles, both for beginners (because of the price) and for experts. Three things that I absolutely love about the Element and the Stratus paddles... The first is half-inch thick poly-carbonate. When I picked up this paddle for the first time at Nationals less than a year ago, I was amazed at the control as well as the power and the sound of the paddle. The sweet spot is very broad because of this half-inch thick poly-carbonate core. The core is covered by a fiberglass face and then with a vinyl surface top. The second thing I really like about this paddle is the weight. The Element weighs 7.5 ounces; the Stratus weighs about 7 ounces. That weight is ideal for maneuverability and speed at the net, while also providing balance and weight sufficient for great groundstrokes. The third thing that's nice about these paddles is that Paddletek guarantees this poly-carbonate core to last for at least five years. As I said, these paddles are great for beginners, great overall play, great control and power, both for indoor and outdoor use, as well as for experts. Jennifer Lucore, Dave Winebach, and Phil Bagley are all presently using the Element paddle. Thanks for visiting.
