Babolat ™ XPLR Power Pickleball Paddle
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 MNSTR series is their premium line for players that want a highly quality board that is lightweight. This paddle, the XPLR, is not part of a series. It is a stand-alone starter paddle designed and priced for players who are new to the game.
This is a top quality starter paddle. It is balanced all around so it will grow with players as they develop from novice to intermediate. The face of this paddle is 100% fiberglass, which is really the best surface for pickleball players, regardless of their level.
