It feels like it's taken Paddletek a very long time to get into the raw carbon fiber game, but they have finally made the leap. And it was worth the wait, especially because the wait was warranted. They sourced raw carbon fiber that is made in America! And not only that, they found a way to enhance the T700 raw carbon fiber to have optimum power while maintaining all the grit and control of the carbon fiber. This new concoction is referred to as PT700 and it's pretty darn good. Let us know what you think and if you would want to play with this paddle.
