Our staff are unanimous in picking the Onix Evoke Premier Heavy Weight as the best pickleball paddle we have ever had the pleasure to play with. It is, in our opinion, an excellent tool for experienced experienced players who know how to use it. It is enormously powerful on serves and drives, yet consistent from edge to edge on touch shots like drops, dinks, lobs and volleys. It is also impressively thick, which we believe is essential for players who want to compete at an advanced level. We believe that this paddle (and paddles like it) are the future of pickleball and strongly encourage all players to make the transition from thin/light paddles to thick paddles over 8 oz. if they want to improve their game.
Co-developed by Pickleball National Champions Matt Wright and Lucy Kovalova, the Evoke Premier paddle brings power and precision to your game like never before. The Evoke Premier uses the new Atomic13 Edge Technology, an edge guard specifically designed to disperse shock while increasing power and swing-speed to the paddle. The DF Composite face provides a consistent minimal coating on the surface to soften the ball without losing any spin or pop off the composite face. The precision cut polypropylene core delivers incredible touch to the heavy weight paddle (8.0-8.5 oz.). The Impact Paddle shape (16” x 8”) is perfect for slightly increasing your reach and maximizing your baseline power, making the Evoke Premier the most powerful and solid paddle in the ONIX Pickleball lineup.

Pickleball Paddle Disclaimer
There are now so many organizations claiming to have the authority to make rules regarding pickleball paddles, that it has become impossible for us to track them all. As a result, Racquet Network no longer tracks which paddles are considered “legal” and which are considered “illegal”. If this issue is important to you, please contact your club before making your purchasing decisions. Racquet Network does not issue refunds for paddles on the basis of their acceptance or lack thereof by any club or organization. In our opinion, all paddles should be “legal” and all players should be welcome.
