Description Technical Specs

Bantam TS-5 Composite Pickleball Paddle

The 2019 TS-5 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 TS-5 is the same beloved paddle as the Bantam EX-L that we all know and love – it just went on a diet. It’s the same in virtually every aspect except for the weight; this paddle is just a slimmed down version of the unbelievably popular Bantam EX-L. Inside, the polymer core is responsive to your every move, making this paddle perfect for the control freak in all of us. The face is silk screened with the familiar geometric pattern that Paddletek is known for, and features swatches of matching colors against a gray square.

The Bantam TS-5 is a great blend of power and finesse. Weighing 7.0 to 7.5 ounces, its control is so great you’ll need to play with it to believe it. The medium grip size with a 5” handle length make this paddle a perfect fit for the average hand. The 7-7/8” wide face combined with a 15-1/2” overall length provide ample hitting surface for players of every level.

The Bantam TS-5 is the perfect paddle for players who want all the power of a heavier paddle without the increased weight.

Available in the following colors: yellow, blue and red.

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

Player Reviews of the Bantam TS-5 Paddle

Video #1 Transcript - Anna Waters

Hi, I'm Anna Leigh Waters and I'm from Delray Beach, Florida and I love this paddle because I feel I have control and power at the same time. I love the thickness of this paddle so I don't feel it's so cumbersome and I don't have a lot of weight to slow down the speed of the paddle so I can hit the ball harder than with a thicker paddle.

Reviewer: Theresa Rapp from Walnutport, PA United States  
Love the color and being a soft hitter this paddle works great for me. I have really good control since it is light weight. Got my paddle in 3 days, quick!!!!

5 of 5 Love this Paddle September 25, 2019
Reviewer: Steven Laneri from Heber City, UT United States  
This is my second TS-5...I love the combination of pop and quickness this paddle gives me. My first TS-5 is over 2 years old so I thought it was time for a new one. Big fan of Paddletek!

3 of 5 Wasn't what I expected. September 22, 2019
Reviewer: Jason Thurston from Nampa, ID United States  
This was a light paddle, but I was expecting more from the power. Sweet spot is not what I had hoped. Was able to make a swap easily though.

4 of 5 Bantam TS 5 Review September 14, 2019
Reviewer: FRANK YAGER from STERLING HEIGHTS, MI United States  
Light weight.  Very effective at the net for controlled volleys,  half volleys and dink’s.   Thinner and slightly less responsive than the Pro version but that is more than made up for in accuracy.
