Outbreak Pickleball Paddle

The Outbreak Pickleball Paddle is a wide body offering from Onix that provides exceptional accuracy thanks to its TeXtreme Technology. This special woven carbon fiber is found in other pro-level sports equipment such as tennis rackets and helps to improve sturdiness and power without increasing weight. This allows players to precisely place their shots without losing out on speed and comfort.

The Outbreak Pickleball Paddle has a 7.8 - 8.2 oz weight range which helps impart spin and power in each swing. It has a polymer core which will work to defuse impact while still offering a solid, reactive sweet spot. The design has a black background with Onix's logo in the center with a "faceted" mix of colors that create a crystalline look. The handle is 5" long and perfect for providing just enough reach while maintaining control over your movements.

The Outbreak Pickleball Paddle has all you need to create impressive precision in your game while also bolstering your defense.

Reviews of the Onix Outbreak Pickleball Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The outbreak could be a great paddle for an intermediate player (3.0-4.0) to take their game to the next level, or a high level (4.5+ player) looking for a ball control paddle. As a soft-touch paddle with enhanced ball dwell time, the Outbreak offers enhanced ball control for placement on drops, lobs and dinks while still being substantial enough at 8 oz with a head forward balance to power the ball on drives. I like the oversize head and extra thick TeXtremeTM core combined with a wide weave graphite/carbon face because it seems to offer a fairly large sweet spot, a soft but solid feel, and enhanced vibration reduction. On first play it took some getting used to the feel of the paddle as there is less feedback feel from the ball but once accustomed to it I liked the quiet feel of the paddle on the ball. As a player who often leans toward a lighter paddle I found I was able to adapt to the play of the Outbreak and because it is not an overly long paddle I found I could still get around on the ball. I recommend this paddle for doubles players looking for enhanced touch/ball control and a softer feel. Like other thicker core paddles the grip is substantial and a bit boxy. Depending on your grip style and preference this may be a positive or negative but does offer quite a bit of feedback on paddle orientation in your hand which is nice. For me the grip size was slightly too large however I generally play with a smaller 4 1/8”-4 1/4” grip size. This would be easily converted to my size by replacing the grip with an overgrip. "
Jimmy, Product Manager (3.5 Player)

"The Outbreak is unlike any other paddle I've hit with. I prefer softer playing paddles like the Tempest Wave, Prince Spectrum, and the Engage Icon. The Outbreak fits nicely into this category of very high-end defensive (soft touch) paddles with an oversized wide face. I found that the paddle gave me the ability to control the ball in soft shot sequences (drops, dinks, and lobs), and I was able to block very effectively when someone powered a ball at me. You give up a bit of power in exchange for these attributes, so I'm recommending this paddle for people who are seeking a softer feeling (and sounding) paddle. The squared up grip was easy for me to keep registered in my hand. I love that Onix is continuing its history of innovation with this paddle!"
Peter, Head Instructor (5.0 Player)

"I am not going to lie, I was surprised by the paddle. I was told by a 5.0 player who had tried it that it was a soft paddle, great in the short game, but tough to put the ball away. Then I played with it and I found I adjusted to the softness quite quickly. It was great for blocks and dinks. And, on my serves and returns I was able to get the ball deep. With driving thirds, I was able to generate top spin, as I felt the ball held to the surface. Then came my first chance for a put away, and low and behold I won the point. I thought, they didn’t know what they were talking about. Then I remembered, I am a 3.5 and playing against 3.5. In the end, I think it will be a paddle that anyone, 2.0-5.0, who really wants to focus on the short game will enjoy. A real nice addition to the Onix line up. I look forward to a few more games with the Outbreak.
John, Sales Director (3.5 Player)

Wow - Incredible Touch February 11, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from PA  
The touch on this paddle is amazing.  I can spin and place balls so much better, with complete control.  I'm not a big fan of a long handle, as I tend to use a ping pong grip, but I've decided to deal with it to have the touch characteristics.  If you try it, you'll love it.

Reviewer: Lori from El Centro, CA United States  
I waited for my final review to compete in the 2019 Senior Games tournament.  My partner and I took home the silver medal.  The paddle is great. I love the feel. Slightly spongy when dinking softly. But packs a solid punch on slams.  I love it

Onix Outbreak February 7, 2019
Reviewer: Justin from Naples Fla USA  
This paddle gets 5+ stars...The handle grip takes a little getting use to a first, it has the feel of a tennis grip that has almost a automatic memory feel when opening and closing the face anywhere on the court...great control paddle soft and hard hits.
Thanks PBC again outstanding service...
