Engineered for maneuverability with wind resistant edgeless construction and thin core technology. As a result the paddle is lightning in your hand. Built for quickness and reflex enhancement. More importantly the paddle boasts unparalleled tip speed. With the Kinetic shock absorbing system, touch, feel, and kitchen play are all enhanced. That is to say it's bringing the best of both worlds to the Ovation Flight.
The ProKennex Kinetic Flight paddles comes in two shapes, and this Pro shape is rectangular with a traditional size and width. The sweet spot plays slightly up the face like squared up paddles. The Flight Series of Paddles are lighter weight than ProKennex’s original releases, coming in at 7.3 – 7.6 oz. Therefore players will enjoy increased speed and maneuverability, with less torque on their elbows. The handle length is 5” with a small grip. This paddle is ideal for reducing overuse injuries and “pickleball elbow” as a result of the manufacturer’s famous Kinetic System which uses tungsten-filled chambers to disperse energy evenly throughout the face. It has well-defined squared edges. In short it's for those who appreciate as much surface area as possible.

Disclaimer: Due to high-performance aerodynamic edgeless-construction, chipping and scratches occur during normal wear and tear. We advise using our training tapes that come included, wrapped with each paddle purchase.
**ProKennex's manufacturing process produces the least amount of variance in the industry. The majority of companies produce their paddles and then weigh what has been produced: Their studies have found that paddles significantly below the 8oz threshold deliver unnecessary shock to the arm, while paddles significantly above the 8oz threshold, while more arm protective, become too cumbersome to move quickly. Their weight range exists in this middle sweet spot. They have done your homework for you.
