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."

5 of 5 Great Paddle - Can’t beat a classic. April 1, 2021
Reviewer: Scott from Paso Robles, CA United States  
As a long-time Paddletek user, I had no desire to look elsewhere when upgrading. The Bantam EX-L Pro has the weight I prefer, and the mildly textured surface provides just enough ‘grab’ to help my spin game. Will be a favorite paddle for a long time.

4 of 5 Bantam EX-L March 29, 2021
Reviewer: Walt Huryk from Clayton, NC United States  
Good quality paddle but still a bit overpriced even with the sale. Still getting used to it, but it does seem to fit the bill. I ordered the large grip and its diameter is fine; was surprised to find its length a bit short for my taste. I have relatively large hands and will pay more careful attention in the future to all dimensions as grip "feel" is very important to me.

5 of 5 Pickleball Central Purchase March 26, 2021
Reviewer: Dennis from Ft Myers, FL United States  
My purchase of the Bantam EX-L Pro Paddle through Pickleball Central was Excellent.  A good friend loaned me his earlier version of this paddle to try.  I was happy with the paddle so decided to order the EX-L Pro.  My new paddle arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Pickleball Central's 30 return policy was comforting in the event that I could have decided the paddle was not for me after using it.  

The paddle is excellent and will not be returned.
