Babolat is a French company that has been around since 1875, when Pierre Babolat created the first strings made of natural gut. In 1994, Babolat expanded beyond strings to become a total racquet sports company whose products are used by professional players in a variety of racquet sports.
Babolat currently offers three different lines of pickleball paddles: RBEL, RNGD and MNSTR. The RBEL series is for players who play a power game and want a heavier paddle both to enhance their power and to extend their paddle durability. The RNGD series nearly identical, with a fiberglass face. The MNSTR series offers a thick, lighter board than either the RBEL or the RNGD series.
Based on feedback from players who have been playtesting this paddle in our demo program, this is the best racquet Babolat is making right now — in spite of the fact that it is not their most expensive. It has a 15mm board covered by a fiberglass face. This combination is the best all around combination for paddles in the all-purpose category.
