Illuminate 2.0 I-Series Paddle by PROLITE

The Illuminate 2.0 I-Series Paddle has a traditional shape with exceptional surfacing that looks beautiful! The face of this paddle is made from carbon fiber, providing you a wonderful balance between "touch" and "pop," and features a UV textured surface which improves spin so that it’s easier to send pickleballs where you want them. Enjoy a sturdy feel with quiet sound thanks to the polypropylene core.

The Illuminate 2.0 I-Series Paddle has a medium weight ranging from 7.4 – 7.8 oz. It has a thin grip circumference with a 5” handle length which uses a tennis-style end cap. This helps prevent your hand from sliding off the bottom of the handle while creating a firmer hold thanks to the angled edges. The colorful graphics feature PROLITE’s logo of a pickleball and lightning strike in the center of the face and have a slim, tapered edge guard to protect it.

The Illuminate 2.0 I-Series Paddle provides comfort during play along with high performance construction.

Review of the Illuminate I-Series PROLITE Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"PROLITE continues to build reliable paddles that are accessible to many players. The Illuminate 2.0 is another success for them in the recreational paddle line up. It is a standard shape paddle that is 15 1/2" long and 7 3/4" wide. This shape provides a solid sweet spot in the middle of the paddle face. It has enough surface area to help with blocks, and enough weight, at an average 7.6 ounces, to provide some pop on ground strokes and serves.

While not as soft playing as some performance paddles, it does provide players with feedback on every hit, letting you know if you are striking the sweet spot or not. With a 4" grip circumference, the paddle will fit almost anyone. With Over Grips, you can build this up to be 4 1/8" to 4 1/4" quite easily and comfortably.

And the paddle has sharp, modern graphics, making it look good, too. For someone getting into the game, who is looking for an all around paddle that is well made and comes from a reliable manufacturer - you can't go wrong with the Illuminate 2.0."

"I played with PROLITE's new Illuminate 2.0 and right from the start it felt great in my hand – I love the feel of PROLITE's contoured tacky grip which keeps my grip firm on the paddle no matter how much my hand perspires. At 7.5 the weight was a little lighter than I normally play with but I liked how easy it was to maneuver. The paddle delivered nice touch and control, and the traditional shape gives a large well centered sweet spot. It feels well balanced and super comfortable. As an added bonus, it's also a great looking paddle and the surprisingly low price makes it an ideal choice for players looking for a quality paddle that won't break the bank."

5 of 5 Love my new Illuminate Paddle! February 4, 2022
Reviewer: Denise Downey from BAYSIDE, CA United States  
I am thrilled with this new paddle...had an older beginner Pro-Lite paddle that I cherished for the custom small grip size it had...but it got "taken" recently and I had to order a new paddle.  The Illuminate fits the bill perfectly - small grip size with the ribbing for extra grip action, and a great bouncy response that the other one did not have...gives more power on poke shots, backhand and forehand.  Yet the paddle is super-light, yet well-weighted and doesn't bother my wrist when playing lots of games in a row.  Highly recommend!

The Illuminate paddle has been a nice upgrade in weight from my beginner paddle but with a small grip which fits my small hands.
