Description Technical Specs

ProKennex Kinetic Pro Flight Paddle

The Kinetic Pro Flight Pickleball Paddle brings fresh innovations to the ProKennex line with an emphasis on speed, placement and improved durability. It uses a new Cloud Cell core which is made to reduce the paddle’s weight due to wider spacing in the honeycomb design. A proprietary Diamond Frost coating on the surface produces tons of spin while resisting wear. Finally, the original Air-O-Guard system provides a fully replaceable edge guard, allowing players to swap out a single part rather than tossing the entire paddle if it gets scuffed.

The ProKennex Kinetic Flight paddles comes in two shapes, and this Pro shape is rectangular with a traditional size and width. The sweet spot plays slightly up the face like squared up paddles. The Flight Series of Paddles are lighter weight than ProKennex’s original releases, coming in at 7.3 – 7.6 oz. Players will enjoy increased speed and maneuverability, with less torque on their elbows. The handle length is 5” with a small grip. This paddle is ideal for reducing overuse injuries and “pickleball elbow” thanks to the manufacturer’s famous Kinetic System which uses tungsten-filled chambers to disperse energy evenly throughout the face. It has well-defined, squared edges for those who appreciate as much surface area as possible.

Kinetic Pro Flight Pickleball Paddle is an innovative piece of equipment that offers excellent control with less chance of injury.

Note: Actual grip circumference may vary up to 1/8".

Reviews of the Kinetic Pro Flight Speed Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"ProKennex continues to drive performance with technology. The ProKennex Pro Speed Flight paddle has the same energy absorption technology of the original paddle, to help prevent injuries. This technology is famous in the tennis world, and set a new standard for paddle technology when introduced for pickleball paddles. ProKennex has added new core and face technologies that take the performance of this paddle to a new level. The core is lighter and yet more powerful – an impressive feat to pull off. That means the put away shots were jumping off my paddle. To go with more pop, the paddle now has a new face texture, so enhanced spin has been added to the ProKennex Flight paddle performance. My cut shots really skipped and gave my opponents fits. The Sweet Spot remains a little higher up the paddle on the rectangular shaped Speed version, great for people wanting a more traditionally shaped paddle. The consistency shot to shot made my kitchen game feel totally in control. The changes to this paddle make it more accessible for players who like a solid light/middleweight paddle."

"As someone who has battled intense 'tennis elbow' problems, I fell in love with the first generation Prokennex Pro Speed paddle. I had three (very) minor complaints with that original model, and this new Flight version addressed all three of my desires. First, it's lighter. My test model was 7.4 oz (vs. the 8.0 ounce first generation version.) Lighter paddles put less strain on your elbow, and give you faster hand speed in kitchen volley exchanges.

Second, I wanted an edge protector for the amazing carbon fiber perimeter frame on the paddle. The Generation 1 version used 'training tape' to protect the edges, but this new Flight version uses something called the 'Air-O-Guard' which is a molded plastic bumper that does not interfere with the face. It's super cool looking, but most importantly it protects the carbon fiber frame. Picking balls close to the ground is incredibly easy with this thin core paddle that doesn't have a traditional bulky edge-guard.

Finally, the paddle generates a ton of power. I didn't like having to move up to an 8.0 ounce paddle to get the power and sweet spot consistency I like in a paddle, but wow, this Pro Speed Flight generates a ton of power for a lighter paddle. The sweet spot is generous, and I felt totally in control on all shot types (drops, dinks, blocks, drives, etc.)

This face texture on this paddle is astounding - the highest level of grit I've ever perceived on a paddle. Hitting cuts and topspin were very easy. This one is going in my bag and may end up my daily player!"

1 of 5 great paddle for two weeks February 23, 2021
Reviewer: Cindy Boyd from Edgewater, FL United States  
I was so excited when I started playing with this paddle, loved it. Then after a few days I noticed that it had a couple of chips which didn't make sense as I hadn't dropped it, don't paddle bump, and it is stored in a bag. After two weeks of playing it had now developed four chips of decent size. I reached out to ProKennex to let them know that there was a problem and after a week they responded that it was normal wear and tear. You have been warned that this paddle is not built for being used, no paddle should show this much damage in two weeks of use. I do not recommend spending $180 on a paddle that is going to start looking worse then paddles that have been used for two years after just two weeks. Find a better company that produces a better product, I will be.

5 of 5 All the Speed You Need February 9, 2021
Reviewer: Carol from Charleston, SC United States  
I had studied this paddle for some time and found that it was the only one I could find thatis designed to help a player with various arm injuries  (pickleball elbow being one). My only concerns before my purchase were effectiveness with injury, power generation and pricetag.

This paddle hits the mark on all accounts. Even with the vibration absorption and lighter weight, this paddle performs with speed and control at the kitchen. I recommend it for all players with or without injuries. It is well worth the investment.

5 of 5 Up your game w/Kinetic Pro Flight Paddle February 8, 2021
Reviewer: Corie Hayes from Fruit Hrights, UT United States  
Just practiced with my new paddle and I beat my husband. The ball reacts quickly with spin when I hit it and the ball trajectory is much lower than normal. So I ask myself did I don anything differently? Absolutely not. Good equipment delivers good results!

5 of 5 Tennis elbow February 4, 2021
Reviewer: Thom from Fort Collins, CO United States  
I am a 68 year old, six months in to this sport.  Never had elbow issues until I played pickleball.  This racket dramatically reduced the pain and swelling to my elbow.  And, it seems to have a large sweet spot.

5 of 5 January 20, 2021
Reviewer: Nancy Bada from Voorhees, NJ United States  
I was having pain in my shoulder. I read reviews about this paddle absorbing some shock form the ball. After using it a week the shoulder feels better.  The paddle is light and therefore I don’t see the ball flying as easily as my other paddle. But it will take some getting used to.  Paddle was delivered on time , great service.
