The Ascend shape is designed especially for players coming from tennis or racquetball backgrounds who prefer an aerodynamic paddle with rapid movement and manipulation for adding more spin. Players who like to use a two-handed backhand will appreciate the extra handle length. It is also ideal as a singles paddle where power and speed are crucial. The Ascend LX is made with our new TMPR Luxe Core for added control and finesse. Honeycomb polymer core with fiberglass face.
