We made the Defender paddle for players who prioritize a massive sweet spot over paddle length. The Defender offers an over-sized sweet spot making it the one of the most forgiving paddles in the game. The Defender boasts a soft 16mm poly-core and a fibreglass face for extreme power. The Defender features our Hyper-Grit™ technology which provides the maximum amount of allowable surface grit as per USA Pickleball regulations. Additionally, the paddle features Poach’s 2X Core™ which have been stresstested and lab proven to be nearly twice as strong as most competitor paddles.
