The Ascend XT is a medium weight power paddle. It was designed especially for players coming from tennis or racquetball backgrounds who value the aerodynamic shape, making it easier to rapidly move the paddle and add spin to the ball. Players who like to occasionally use a two-handed backhand will appreciate the extra length of the handle. It is also ideal as a singles paddle where power and speed are crucial. The Ascend XT features a honeycomb polymer with graphics printed directly on a fiberglass face for the maximum allowed texture allowed for USA Pickleball approval. Features TMPR vibration dampening technology.
