Description Technical Specs

Bantam EX-L Pro Pickleball Paddle

The Bantam EX-L Pro takes the regular Bantam EX-L's control and power to a new level thanks to Paddletek's new, advanced core. This updated polymer core is thicker than before and creates additional touch and pop during play. It also has a 1/4" longer surface so players have a slightly larger face to utilize. The stylish design also shows off the quality that's gone into improving this popular competitive paddle.

The Bantam EX-L Pro weighs 8.2 - 8.8 oz and has a 7-7/8" width. The handle length is 4-3/4" long and can be ordered in either a small or large grip size. It has a composite surface with Paddletek's signature "P" decorating the center of the face. Different patterns are inlaid within the letter and the paddle's background, while the Bantam EX-L Pro name is located in the lower right.

The Bantam EX-L Pro will bring just the right amount of balance to your game so you can be a master of the soft game while still having the capacity to put away shots.

Paddle review December 10, 2018
Reviewer: Robert Bartlett from Oak Grove, MO United States  
I like the paddle very much, the only downside so far is the handle is shorter than what I amused to using. Only used it about 5-7 times but I am getting to like it better than my old paddle.

Great new paddle August 15, 2018
Reviewer: Cody Stone from Greenwood, IN United States  
Had the Bantam EX-L, the pro has a better grip for me. Adds a little bit more weight to help finish shots. I am already playing much better. I am a solid 4.0 but I hope the pro will bring me to the next level.

August 9, 2018
Reviewer: Sean P from Sugar Hill, GA United States  
I was a bit disappointed at first with the new EX-L PRO for 2 main reasons.  

1- Being that the paddle face/surface still had the vinyl face & not a textured fiberglass face.  The new paddles with a more textured surface helps with adding spin, which is an important part of your game.  
2- Was that the new EXL-PRO had a much shorter handle, and didn't quite fit in my hand well, or comfortable for my style of play.

I decided to try to customize the paddle a bit, & built the handle up to a medium size, & also extended the grip by nearly a 1/2 inch.  The paddle now measures right at 16" long, & with my customizations, I LOVE IT!

I hope Paddletek considers making the handle longer, and dropping the size back down to 8.0 oz without having to customize. I'd say the new thicker core really adds tons of pop and better touch/feel, but if someone wants a lighter version, they may want to try the TS-5 Pro.

Oops! July 30, 2018
Reviewer: James P Reider from Cameron Park, CA United States  
Returned the EX-L Pro for a TS-5 because the EX-L was too heavy. The TS-5 is outstanding, great feel and huge sweet spot. The customer service was excellent in dealing with the exchange. Everyone is so helpful that is why I keep coming back. Thanks!
