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!"

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.

Still getting used to it. The grip feels a little large. It is not a small grip. Not sure about it yet.

5 of 5 Pro Kennex Kinetic Pro paddle January 19, 2021
Reviewer: Jeff Janosik from San Jose , CA United States  
Love this paddle. Light weight for quick reflex shots. The kinetic system is an arm saver reducing the wear and tear of your arm and specifically your elbow. It seams to have a large and forgiving sweet spot for those occasional miss hits. The paddle has a replaceable edge guard which is nice to know. I won’t be replacing this paddle any time soon.

5 of 5 Pro Flight paddle January 12, 2021
Reviewer: Douglas Loftus from KISSIMMEE, FL United States  
After using the paddle 3 times I knew that the shock absorbing technology was actually helping. I had almostno arm and shoulder soreness, whereas it was a big issue prior to using this paddle.

5 of 5 Amazing Paddle January 7, 2021
Reviewer: Matthew from Folsom , CA United States  
If you prefer a thinner paddle you must give the ProKennex a try.  At first glance, the paddle may look a little small but I was amazed at the size of the sweet spot.  It seems like contact anywhere on the paddle feels good, there are no "deadspots" and shots hit off center, toward the top or bottom of the paddle feel great.  The paddle has good spin, excellent feel, and enough power to perform well all around the court.  Anyone with arm issues or who prefers the thinner paddle really needs to try the Kinetic Pro Flight.
