As pickleball grows, so does the technology of paddle construction. The newest core to the pickleball game is polymer, a plastic blend. Polymer cores are beginning to earn the reputation of being the quietest core on the market due to being slightly less deflective than the other two cores. This also helps players with a little extra control since players have a split-second longer to manipulate the ball. After playing with a polymer core paddle, it will not be tough to determine why the popularity of this core is booming.
