Description Technical Specs

Diadem Warrior Pickleball Paddle

The Warrior Carbon Fiber Paddle by Diadem is the first to utilize a 19mm (0.748") thick core, making it the thickest paddle the pickleball market has ever seen. It features a special 3-layered honeycomb utilizing hard-hitting Nomex in the center with a layer of vibration-dampening polypropylene on either side. The result is excellent power and feedback, while maintaining a sense of control which instills confidence in your ball placement and short game. These playing characteristics are amplified by the Grit Paint on the surface which enables the player to almost effortlessly add spin to slice and cut shots. Despite the imposing core thickness, this paddle does not have a large grip, as it tapers at the neck and leads to a slim 4-1/8" circumference handle.

The Warrior Pickleball Paddle weighs an average of 8.5 oz. and has a 5" long handle. The unique Taper Tech from Diadem is what allows the grip size to remain manageable in comparison to the dense core. At a 16.4" overall length, the Warrior creates an easier sense of reach and court coverage. Its face material is high-grade carbon fiber to deliver an extra reactive touch.

The Warrior Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle from Diadem brings harder-hitting swings to your game without reducing your sense of control.

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

4 of 5 April 19, 2022
Reviewer: Robert Otto from Yucaipa, CA United States  
I like the control and power, but the cons have me concerned: the surface is already speckled white after only playing with it three times. And from several reviews, manufacturing flaws also pointed out are edge guards coming loose and cracks on the face. Three other players in our club have Warriors, and they've had these issues, too, that I mentioned. And the six-month warranty concerns me. But we all agreed that the paddle plays very well.

Reviewer: Mark DeBoer from Central Point , OR United States  
Excellent blend of power and touch.  Decent spin, but on the heavier side but one of my favorites in the quiver

5 of 5 Must have paddle April 1, 2022
Reviewer: Zachary Seufert from Oregon  
This paddle cleaned up my soft game, made shots possible that with my other paddle just couldn’t be done. This paddle draws attention, color, sound of ball off paddle people turn to see. A great paddle that gives you fighting chance to be great pickleballer! My handle wrap just fell apart 2 weeks into use. And paint and paddle face isn’t holding up. I am sure this paddle won’t last like my other one. This seems to be the only down side! Wish i wasn’t passed my return, I’d exchange it for the same one. Don’t be a fool and buy the Selkirk, pick up a real tool of the trade.
