Christine McGrath Pickleball Paddle by Franklin

The Christine McGrath Signature Pickleball Paddle was built with a pro's input and plays with premium performance as a result. One of its most enticing features is the unique MaxGrit surface which creates better traction so pickleballs easily spin off the face. Players will love the intense control this offers along with its USAPA approval, which allows it to be used in official competitions. The even weight and thick core create a solid yet tactile feel.

The Christine McGrath Signature Pickleball Paddle spans 7.6 - 8.1 oz, making it a medium weight option that can alternate between dinks and power shots. The 8" wide face lets players make use of the oversized sweet spot. Its design reduces vibration so that you won't be thrown off your game during quick exchanges and can focus on creating opportunities.

The Christine McGrath Signature Pickleball Paddle is an ideal choice for players who want to merge their mental game with tangible techniques thanks to its intuitive feel.

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

Reviews of the Franklin Christine McGrath Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"Christine McGrath’s Franklin paddle brings a little old school back to the game. The paddle is traditional in both core thickness and paddle shape. It feels like an old friend when you pick it up. The playability is predictable, which makes for a consistent paddle. The sweet spot is in the center of the paddle face and the pop from the fiberglass face gets serves and returns deep. Because of the 8 inch wide face, I also felt comfortable at the net with my blocks. The MaxGrit texture, like the Ben John’s paddle enhances spin. The overall build of this paddle makes it an all court paddle with enough forgiveness to make me feel confident with an array of shots."
John, Sales Team (4.0 Player)

4 of 5 Great paddle - even greater purchase experience August 12, 2021
Reviewer: stephen s from Danville , CA United States  
Like anything control and power is inversely related.  the Christine McGrath sig. leans toward control so works better for finesse players.
