Bantam EX-L Pro Pickleball Paddle

The 2019 Bantam EX-L Pro models are the ones that feature a different design on the front vs the back. We expect to have a small number of the older original designs available in the next few days, so we have left those images visible for you to see.

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.

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

Reviews of the Paddletek Bantam EX-L Pro Paddle by Johnson Ranch Pickleball Club:

"I've had the chance to use the Paddletek Bantam EX-L Pro for 15-20 games now and found it to be a top notch paddle. I would say it's one of the lighter paddles I've used, so it inspired confidence in tight situations that required quick reactions. At first I found the grip to feel a bit unusual, but that feeling passed very quickly and I felt the grip was actually more comfortable than many others I've tried.
My favorite thing about the Bantam EX-L Pro is the large sweet spot. I was able to make many shots with a consistency I had not previously enjoyed."

Bantam EX-L Pro Review

"The first thing I noticed about the Bantam EX-L Pro was its soft feel. It's great for some, but it was hard for me to get used to it. After playing a little more I seemed to adjust to the paddle, but it still didn't have the pop that I prefer.
On the plus side, the sweet spot on the Paddletek Bantam EX-L Pro was more than adequate and seemed to be helpful when dropping a return over the net using its soft touch. Dinking with this paddle was great too, as the feel and control were very responsive. My serve had a lot of control and plenty of spin that I liked to use.
I would say that most players would love having the Bantam EX-L Pro in their arsenal."

5 of 5 Great Paddle September 26, 2019
Reviewer: David Olverd from Plainview, NY United States  
I was happy with my old paddle but tries this one and found it to have a little more power. I don't think I lost any control. It's all a balance and this works better for me. Mine is 8.3oz with a small handle. My old paddle was a Selkirk S2. It has a larger sweet spot and less power. It's all a matter of what you prefer.

5 of 5 Excellent Service July 12, 2019
Reviewer: Dennis Brown from Hermosa Beach, CA United States  
I was reluctant to purchase a new paddle without first trying it but the woman at PC was so helpful, knowledgeable and informative that I took a chance and ordered it over the phone. I could not be happier. The paddle is the perfect weight, size and length and fits my game perfectly.
