Here's a transcript of the video: Hey everyone, Sarah Ansboury. I am your US OPEN 2016 Women’s Champion as well as Mixed Champion. I’m here to tell you about this fantastic new paddle that I am personally playing with right now. I am absolutely in love with it. This right here is the HEAD Xtreme Tour. What I love, love, love about this is this amazing diamond control shape. With this diamond shape, you actually get a little bit more space near the ground which is really, really cool. It’s got a carbon graphite surface. It’s amazing the grab this paddle has, and I’ve never felt anything like it. The spin you get without even trying is ridiculous. One of my favorite things about this paddle is that we have a single piece. A lot of paddles are made in multiple pieces. This is one single piece. What that means is it’s going to be much more stable paddle overall. You can definitely feel the difference when you pick this up. Please try this paddle out. It’s absolutely fantastic. We’ve got a great price point. PickleballCentral has a lot of options for demos, so take advantage.
"This is the paddle I currently use. I told HEAD I wanted something with power that also had good control. I love the way the Xtreme Tour grabs the ball, making it great when I need to block or add spin. The interesting shape feels more maneuverable for me which helps at the net when I need to be fast.
It’s also a great choice for players who are making the jump from tennis to pickleball. This has a similar shape to a racquet, and the graphite surface gives it a nice feel."
