7 Reasons Why Players Love the Wickle Elite I
1. A Face Grittier Than a Man's Scruff
We're talking about those faces that feel like sandpaper. The Elite I's multi-layer raw carbon fiber face was meticulously engineered to push the limits of USAPA surface roughness compliance so you can achieve the maximum spin possible while still having a paddle that is USAPA approved.
2. Balanced Weighting like an Olympic Gymnast
We mean a gold medal gymnast that doesn't fall off the balance beam or stumble on dismounts. Weighing in at 7.9oz, the Elite I's balanced weight distribution spread evenly across the paddle prevents excessive concentration in the head or handle, allowing for confident play whether driving, dropping, or volleying the ball. This allows you to achieve the ideal balance between power, agility, and consistency, ensuring exceptional performance.
3. Long Handle for a Good Grip
Size matters. Most people don't enjoy a short handle. The Elite I's elongated 5.5-inch handle allows you to unleash potent one- or two-handed backhand returns without sacrificing the paddle's face size. Ideal for tennis players transitioning to pickleball, this design ensures both power and precision in every shot.
4. A Core That Gets Attention
With a core like the Elite I, others take notice. The high-quality polypropylene honeycomb core utilizes compressed 8mm cells to reduce vibration and enhance the Elite I's sweet spot. This combined with the multi-layer raw carbon fiber face offers unparalleled feel, feedback, and control which enables precise ball placement and predictability off the face without any unexpected dead spots.
5. Attractive and Sporty
Like those celebrities you fantasize about. The Elite I marries cutting-edge performance with striking design, creating an exceptional paddle that's both visually captivating and functionally superior. Elevate your game with a paddle that leaves a lasting impression.
6. High Class Paddle, Middle Class Pricing
The Elite I is like that friend who is sharp and sophisticated and somehow does it all while spending less. While competitors often charge $180-$300 for performance paddles, we offer premium quality, design, and performance at a reasonable price point. With Wickle, you can trust that you're getting a paddle engineered to be the best, as we're dedicated to delivering excellence through one meticulously crafted paddle, driven by our extensive research into what players need and demand in a performance paddle.
