DIADEM WARRIOR EDGE PICKLEBALL PADDLE
Diadem Warrior Edge 16mm Pickleball PaddleThe Warrior Edge Carbon Fiber Paddle from Diadem features a 16mm (0.63") thick core, which is thicker than most paddles but slimmer than the original Diadem Warrior (which happens to be the first 19mm thick paddle ever introduced to the pickleball paddle market). This allows the Warrior Edge to retain high-performance power with more speed and maneuverability than its predecessor. With a polymer honeycomb composition, the control-oriented thick core also contributes to fewer impact vibrations so players can maintain a steady hold on their paddle during quick exchanges.
The Warrior Edge Pickleball Paddle weighs in at 7.8 – 8.2 oz., keeping it comfortably in the midweight range. It has a small 4-1/8" grip circumference, which is easily fattened up a bit with an overgrip. The handle length is 5" which provides a pleasant amount of room for most players. Its surface is composed of etched carbon fiber which aligns vertically to "bite" the ball (and won't wear down like a gritty painted surface), enabling you to utilize spin more easily on your cuts, slices and spin serves. Finally, the Aero Guard edge guard accelerates air flow across the thickness of the paddle, resulting in quicker resets and a more durable edge guard overall with valleys and ridges to absorb impact.
