Description Technical Specs

Bantam TS-5 Composite Pickleball Paddle

The 2020 TS-5 models feature a different design on the front vs the back. Yellow only available in previous model.

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.

4 of 5 Good Handling Paddle December 13, 2019
Reviewer: James White from Lawrence, MA United States  
I like the Bantam TS-5 paddle for its quickness due to being only 7.5 ounces. It does seem to sacrifice some power but is fine for control and spin and vibration control is fair. The Grip is fine with good feel, comfort, and non-slip. I must admit, however, that my Rally Graphite Power 5.0 is a superior paddle in every way, including vibration control and quietness with the exception of weight where it comes in at 8.2 oz. The Rally hits harder with equal or more control and spin and costs much less. The Bantam is nice but it really is over priced when compared to my Rally Graphite.

4 of 5 Nice paddle November 21, 2019
Reviewer: John P. from Santa Cruz, CA United States  
Got this paddle for my 3.25 wife.   She likes it.  Light weight, consistent hits.   Maybe I'll even get to try it one of these days.

5 of 5 Back to Light Weight November 13, 2019
Reviewer: Bob from Worthington MN  
After my first paddle went soft I purchased a new one. I went 4 oz. to heavy trying to generate more power. I lost my touch, arm speed, reaction speed at the net, and spin. I resolved to get back what I lost and found it in the Paddletek TS-5. Love the instant return success. I’m tempted to buy another as a back-up for tournament play. The staff were really great to find exactly the weight I was looking for. This is a great paddle and trusted source for your Pickleball needs.

Great paddle...as always Paddletek is right on the mark as far as quality is concerned. It's a little lighter in weight but that's something that I will to get use to. Nice graphics too!
