The Spectrum Pro Paddle has a circular shape that creates an extra large sweet spot that will blow away "touch" players' expectations. This paddle has a very soft feel that can still smash winners with ease whenever you see an opening. A thick polymer core serves to increase its responsive nature while a slim edge guard allows for the maximum amount of surface area. This paddle defies the normal trade-offs you face in composite fiberglass paddles - it has an enormous sweet spot, and exceptional power attributes, making it equally appealing to players who want both a great defensive paddle and an offensive weapon.
The Spectrum Pro Paddle has a 5" long handle and can be ordered in two different weights and grip sizes in order to customize its features to best suit your needs. The broad 8-1/4" will offer plenty of room to return all manner of shots while keeping control over your volley's angle and positioning. The design uses a background composed of a combination honeycomb/jagged design overlaid by Prince's "p" logo.
The Spectrum Pro Paddle features a wonderful blend of touch and strength which will have you feeling more in control of your game than ever before. The Progressive Core technology is thicker than the industry standard polymer cores. It features a 9/16" thick core that provides a "linear progressive" feel. The more you power up your shots, the more of that power gets imparted to the ball. Normally with other fiberglass faced paddles this results in a concentrated "hot spot" in the middle of the face, but the Progressive Core" on the Prince, combined with its unique rounded shape that maximizes the sweet spot, gives you shot consistency with soft shots (like dinks), defensive volleys (where you need to take power out of a shot coming at you fast), and power put away shots. Our testers marveled at this paddle, noting it was one of the best paddles we've ever put through the test lab (see their comments below.)
