Prolite is an OG of pickleball paddles. Started back in 1984, they were the first to evolve the game from our wooden paddle roots and into the world of composite materials. Well, things have come a very long way from 1984 and so has Prolite. This is Prolite's first thermoformed paddle and it's quite interesting. It is designed with one of the widest hitting surfaces we have ever reviewed. The unibody construction, Open Throat System, and Permatraction coating provides a ton of spin beyond what the Toray T700 carbon finer can produce on its own.
