The Elite I is the result of our efforts to blend striking design with exceptional performance, resulting in a paddle that's practically a Swiss Army knife on the court.

Featuring a forgiving, controllable, yet powerful feel from the polypropylene core and spin from the raw carbon fiber face that makes physics jealous, we’ve incorporated all the performance features an Elite player demands in an Elite paddle. Oh, and we also didn’t compromise on features players value, such as a grip long enough for two-handed backhands and well-balanced weighting that won't make you feel like you're training for an arm-wrestling contest between serves.

With the Wickle Elite I, 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.

Attractive & Sporty without being High Maintenance

A Scruffy Face


Akin to a man's scruff, the Elite I's gritty face utilizes precisely engineered multi-layer raw carbon fiber. It pushes USAPA surface roughness limits, ensuring maximum spin within approved standards.

Long Handle for Good Handling


Size matters and the Elite I's above average 5.5-inch length lets you grip with two hands. This allows for potent backhand returns and ensures both power and precision in every shot.

Built Like a Tank


Designed to withstand those acts of frustration after a bad shot. The Elite I boasts a durable unibody construction, which integrates the core and face throughout the entire paddle as one piece.

A Controlling Core


Play with a core that takes control of games. The Elite I's polypropylene core and carbon fiber face combination reduces vibration and offers unparalleled control, ensuring no unexpected dead spots during play.

Balanced Weight Like a Gymnast


Just like a gymnast on the balance beam, the Elite I's even weight distribution prevents excessive concentration in the head or handle, ensuring confident play whether driving, dropping, or volleying.

Attractive and Sporty


You no longer have to settle for the lesser of two choices. The Elite I marries cutting-edge performance with striking design, creating a paddle that's both visually captivating and functionally superior.

High Class Paddle, Middle Class Pricing

Be sharp, sophisticated, and dominate the courts 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.

Low Quality Has Left the Chat

The only time we cut corners is when hitting an ATP. We pride ourselves on manufacturing the highest quality paddle possible. We are able to do this by utilizing high quality equipment such as CNC Cutters and Laser Printers combined with high quality materials such as our polypropylene honeycomb core and multi-layer T700 raw carbon fiber face. This all means we can provide you with an exceptional paddle of exceptional quality every time.

Great paddle

Gritty As Promised!

I was a little skeptical about this paddle at first, but once it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The paddle face is gritty as they claimed it to be. The first time I used it was in a two hour long official DUPR session. All my drops and dinks were consistent and they felt great coming off the paddle. Love the longer handle as well. I usually play with a Revolin Pure Control 16mm paddle. Compared to that, the WICKLE paddle seemed to be much more forgiving when I missed the sweet spot. Only thing I dont understand is why paddle companies put their company logo graphic smack dab in the center. Idk how much it actually affects the spin of the ball, but especially with a gritty face like this paddle, I feel like the logo hinders the maximum amount of spin. But maybe that’s just me being OCD 🤷🏻‍♂️. Overall, very happy with this paddle. Definitely worth it for the $75 promo. Now I just hope it lasts! If it proves to be a durable paddle as well, I will 100% be a repeat customer. Great customer service/engagement as well!

Adam, appreciate the review and glad you are loving the spin and control of the paddle! We designed our paddle with high quality materials/construction methods to be durable, but if something does happen, please do not hesitate to reach out to us :)

Weight

I wish it was a little healthier. I am a big man and the overall weight just seems light.

That's completely understandable... we designed the paddle to feel lighter in the hands and thus the swingweight is lower than comparable paddles. If you prefer a heavier paddle, we would suggest adding some lead tape to the edges which will help it feel heavier in the hands.
