Bantam EX-L Composite Pickleball Paddle

The Bantam EX-L Composite Pickleball Paddle by Paddletek is one of our most popular paddles. This paddle has a specialized, polymer core which was specifically made for pickleball playing. This core was designed to provide greater power, more control and hits that are strong yet quieter than Nomex core paddles. Paddletek created the Bantam to be a winner at a lighter weight. The abstract, geometric vinyl decal is laid on top of the high tech fiberglass face. Inside, the strong polymer core provides a sturdy basis for lots of pickleball play.

The Bantam EX-L paddle is in the sweet zone for many players, weighing 7.7 to 8.4 ounces. At this weight, players still have natural power from the paddle but can also impart spin and control. The 7-7/8” wide face provides a good amount of room on the face, while the 5 1/8” long handle is long enough for reach but not overly-extended. This paddle measures 15-5/8” from the top of the paddle to the bottom. The small-sized grip is padded, keeping a player’s comfort in mind.

The new 2020 model of the EX-L Pro features Torsional Vibration Control that helps improve the size of the sweet spot side to side and help you have successful shots on off-center mis-hits.

Choosing to play with the Bantam EX-L is a decision that no player will ever look back on with regret.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

Transcript of Video - Kyle Yates

I'm Kyle Yates. I'm from Fort Myers, Florida. I use the Paddletek Bantam EX-L. I've been playing with this paddle for about five years now. I fell in love with it right away. As soon as I hit the ball it felt so powerful, I felt like I had so much control and I haven't been able to play with anything else since.

Transcript of Video - Irina Tereschenko

My name is Irina Tereschenko. I'm originally from Russia and currently reside in sunny, Tucson, Arizona. I chose Bantam EX-L because I was looking for a paddle that gives me consistent performance on different surfaces and different conditions; windy, humid, it doesn't matter, Bantam EX-L can bring my game to the next level.

Transcript of Video - Ben Larson

My name is Ben Larson. I play with the Alaska Pickleball Club, and my paddle of choice is the Bantam EX-L. So, I like this paddle for a lot of reasons. I'm a tennis player, so I like the paddle to have a little bit of weight and this paddle is a little bit on the heavier side, which is nice. It gives me a lot of feel on the harder shots. It's a really solid paddle. Every time you hit the ball, especially on those volleys, it comes off with a lot of pop. It feels really nice hitting through the ball, and this paddle just offers a lot of flexibility. What I mean by that is basically every kind of shot that you want to hit; touch, spin, power, serve, whatever you want this one can do it and it feels really nice.

Hey all you pickleball players, I'm Alex Hamner, Professional Pickleball Player. I've been playing about eight years, and today I'm at Pickleball Central's Pickleball Station, their fantastic four indoor courts and that's why I don't have my hat on or my big old visor maybe you've seen me play in. This is the real me! I'm here to talk to you about the Bantam EX-L paddles by Paddletek. It's been my paddle of choice for well over a year. Love playing with it. It gives a lot of power, whereas I don't have to swing really hard. The weight is evenly weighted. It gives a nice swing, plenty of pop, but I also have pretty good control with it. My drop shots, I love that shot. Dinks are good. Lobs have plenty of control, so it's great because I get the power and the control. Helps you win medals at those tournaments.

5 of 5 Excellent customer service August 19, 2021
Reviewer: Satisfied customer from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
I did a bit of research before deciding which pickle-ball paddle I wanted to buy.  It seemed like the more I looked at the various specks, the more confused I became.  I finally called customer service and within 10 minutes, of answering several questions, I was on my way to owning a new paddle.  It came in within a week, as promised an so far, I am happy with my purchase.

5 of 5 Nice control July 16, 2021
Reviewer: Keith from Highland Lakes , NJ United States  
I’m not the most technically sound player but I have been playing for over a decade. This paddle is everything I wanted. It’s lighter than my older paddle, grips the ball better for creating spin and is still pretty powerful. I’m able to control the ball slightly better than before. So really a great purchase.

Reviewer: Bones from Muncie, IN United States  
I placed my order then realized I wanted a specific weight.  I emailed cs and made my request.  CS got back to me w/in minutes and made it happen. Couldn’t be more satisfied with the service I received.
