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.

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."

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.

Bantam EX-L Pro May 8, 2019
Reviewer: Bob Schneider from Palm Beach Gardens, FL United States  
I recently transitioned from tennis to PickleBall.  My first paddle was a Wilson purchased from Costco.  After 1 month I realized the Wilson wasn't going to cut for me.  After speaking with the pro at my club, he suggested I try his Paddletek paddle, I immediately saw the difference, and knew I had to upgrade if I wanted to improve my game.  Now that I purchased the Bantam EX-L Pro I am experiencing a lot of improvements in my game.  The weight is 8.5, which I needed as I didn't like any of the lighter paddles I tried.  The balance and the sweet spot is designed for a lot of mistakes I sometimes make.  Since showing it to some of my fellow players they have purchased this paddle.  Also I would like to give a shoutout to the staff at PickleBall Central. They are very knowledgeable, helpful in selection, courteous, and very patient.

Buy your paddles from Pickleball Central! May 7, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Mission Viejo, CA United States  
I love the Paddletek Bantam EXL Pro.  It has great touch at the net and nice power from the baseline - just what I was looking for.

I’m so glad I ordered my paddle from Pickleball Central.  Their customer service was amazing. They answered the phone right away and guided me through the online order process - just put the requested paddle weight in the comments section when placing the order.  They sent me the exact weight I requested.

Learning to use it March 19, 2019
Reviewer: Brent Barrowcliff from Siloam Springs, AR United States  
Bantam EX-L Pro model is a great paddle.   I am learning how to use it.  I am gaining confidence with it on my soft shoots and my mashes.   I really like the larger handle on the rack.

I love this paddle.  It has a lot of power with less effort than my Bantam EX-L.  Nice, big sweet spot.  It has raised my game a level.
