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 7-7/8Ē wide face provides a good amount of room on the face, while the 5 1/8Ē long handle is long enough for reach but not overly-extended. This paddle measures 15-5/8Ē from the top of the paddle to the bottom. The small-sized grip is padded, keeping a playerís comfort in mind.

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

Available in the following colors: red, blue, purple, pink

Please note: grips sizes are approximate.

Transcript of Video #3 - Curtis


This is Curtis with Paddletek. This is the Bantam XL, a very popular seller for us. What makes the Bantam special, itís around 8 ounces and it has more pop in the sweet spot. So if youíre looking for a little more power when you hit the sweet spot, this is the paddle for you.

Transcript of Video #4 - Linda Einseidler


Hi, Iím Linda Einsiedler from Maine. Iím an Ambassador, Maine, Freeport Brunswick area. (This is) my first time here. I love Paddletek rackets. I have this, the Bantam and I have the Power Play Pro and I when this is my favorite, absolute favorite racket ever.

What do you like about it?
Itís got a lot of pop and I like that the surface is very durable. Iíve played with other rackets where the surface breaks down in about three to five months. So, this has been with me for, ever since for three or four months of hard play, and there is no sign of wear. Plus it has the warranty on the surface for the surface.

Paddletek Bantam PB Paddle June 5, 2019
Reviewer: Jay Weaver from San Tan Valley, AZ United States  
Initial opinion is that I am not sure this is the paddle for me. Most recent paddle was from Head. It had more 'pop's than the Paddletek Bantam. Also, the Bantam seems smaller than other paddles I have. Still using the Bantam and hoping it grows on me.

New paddletek April 12, 2019
Reviewer: Jay Hildreth from Little River, SC United States  
The process of ordering and then receiving the paddle was a breeze.  Unfortunately the overall performance is disappointing.  I want to return/exchange for a paddle with a larger "sweet" spot.  How do I proceed ?
