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 5.5" handle length that is octagonally-shaped. 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, yet has power when needed. Its core is made of honeycomb polymer with graphics printed on a fiberglass face for the maximum texture allowed for USA Pickleball approval. Features TMPR vibration dampening technology.
