Z5 Composite Paddle

The Z5 Composite Pickleball Paddle by Onix is a heavier version of the ultra-popular Graphite Z5 paddle. Virtually identical in all aspects (except for material, construction and weight), this paddle is a great choice for players who want a little extra oomph behind their hits. The solid Nomex honeycomb core provides a sturdy foundation for play on the fiberglass face. The face is covered with a graphic similar to cells, and then topped with a giant Z and a 5 in flourishing text.

The Composite Z5 paddle provides lots of power, thanks to its weight of 8.4-9.2 ounces. The paddle is 8-1/8 wide when measured from side to side, and 15-1/2 long from the top of the edge guard to the end of the handle. The handle is a good length of 5, providing just enough length for reach without seeming overly-long. It is wrapped with a black perforated cushion grip, which makes the grip circumference on this paddle a medium size.

After playing just once with this fantastic paddle, it will be evident why so many people consider the Z5 Composite paddle to be one of the best paddles produced.

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

4 of 5 Confusing purchase August 19, 2019
Reviewer: Tomas Diego from Rancho Mirage, CA United States  
I ordered what I believed to be the graphite paddle based on the picture. I have a graphite paddle already and was ordering one for a friend. The “graphite” paddle I ordered that appeared to be identical to mine actually was a composite paddle. The picture of the actual graphite paddle was not the same as mine. Long story short, my friend is happy, for the time being, with the composite paddle. So, other than the confusion with the the picture representing the graphite and composite paddles, and my error in not reading the description closely, all is well.

1 of 5 Not a Happy Pickleball Player (Seconds???) July 8, 2019
Reviewer: Carl Markert from Taylors, SC United States  
Specify the exact weight of the paddle you are ordering.  I thought my paddle would come in the weight range as advertised and specified on manufacturers web site.  However, I received a paddle outside of the specified range.  To me that is a “second”  due to it doesn’t meet manufacturers specs and isn’t what was advertised on site.  I feel I got the ole switch and bait from Pickleball Central.  When I called and questioned the paddle they started off saying it is what it is and they can’t control weights.  The gal kept making me feel like it was my fault for purchasing the composite paddle instead of the graphite model.  I got very frustrated and made a bad decision and walked away from any satisfactory resolution. Definitely need to step up some quality control instead of selling out of spec paddles to a newbie to the sport and first time customer.  Says a lot about their meeting customers expectations and locking in future orders.
