Diadem Warrior Edge 16mm Pickleball Paddle

The Warrior Edge Carbon Fiber Paddle from Diadem features a 16mm (0.63") thick core, which is thicker than most paddles but slimmer than the original Diadem Warrior (which happens to be the first 19mm thick paddle ever introduced to the pickleball paddle market). This allows the Warrior Edge to retain high-performance power with more speed and maneuverability than its predecessor. With a polymer honeycomb composition, the control-oriented thick core also contributes to fewer impact vibrations so players can maintain a steady hold on their paddle during quick exchanges.

The Warrior Edge Pickleball Paddle weighs in at 7.8 – 8.2 oz., keeping it comfortably in the midweight range. It has a small 4-1/8" grip circumference, which is easily fattened up a bit with an overgrip. The handle length is 5" which provides a pleasant amount of room for most players. Its surface is composed of etched carbon fiber which aligns vertically to "bite" the ball (and won't wear down like a gritty painted surface), enabling you to utilize spin more easily on your cuts, slices and spin serves. Finally, the Aero Guard edge guard accelerates air flow across the thickness of the paddle, resulting in quicker resets and a more durable edge guard overall with valleys and ridges to absorb impact.

The Warrior Edge Carbon Fiber Paddle from Diadem mixes power with comfort so you can play hard and come back for more.

Reviews of the Warrior Edge 16mm Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The Warrior Edge from Diadem has some of the best qualities from each of their current paddles in the line-up, combined into one dynamic paddle. The 16mm one piece core echoes the Warrior with soft play. The thinner (for a Warrior) core does give the Edge more power than the original Warrior (though not quite as much as Diadem's Icon). And finally, the etched carbon surface grabs the ball and makes shaping shots easier. At an average of 8.0 oz. it is more maneuverable than it's bigger brother and makes defense at the net a little easier. Now, based on your play style, there is a Diadem pickleball paddle for you:

5 of 5 Love this Paddle/Bought 2 August 17, 2022
Reviewer: JAMES REED from Modesto, CA United States  
Was previously attached to the original Warrior, but had to try this. Absolutely love the spin and control. As a former tennis player, this made my transition to the game incredibly quick. Highly recommend if you like the power game and rely on spin! Great paddle!

5 of 5 Different & Better Than Original Warrior August 15, 2022
Reviewer: David Drake from Marietta, GA United States  
Touch and topspin are key to me. I have an eye impairment so I try to drop, reset and out-dink my opponents. Don’t get me wrong, I will drive on 3rd and drop on 5th but every one of my shots depend on the ability to roll and generate topspin and the Warrior Edge delivers exceptionally well for me. If your more of a power player or banger, I think there may be better choices for that style of play.
