I love this paddle! I had a Z5 and happened to play with this one one day. With the smaller grip and lighter weight (7 oz vs 8.2ozs), I find I can get backhand returns over the net much more of the time. It feels light and easy to play with. I love it! It has made my game much better.
It is perfect for the game of Pickle Ball. The handle is perfect for my small hand and the ball bounces perfectly.
I brought a blue Champion Paddle earlier after I was hooked in Pickleball. It was much better than the wood or Aluminum paddles provided by the club and it improved my game greatly. I had tried some other more expensive paddles from other players but I think my Champion paddle is just as good. Now I get my wife interested in Pickleball so I got her a red one and she love it.
