The Rhino Pickleball ION elongated paddle lets you track down every ball and experience superior pop off the paddle face with impressive control. The ION's longer 16.5" blade-style paddle design and shorter handle offer an unbeatable combination of extra reach, a larger sweet spot, and easy maneuverability so you can always pick your shot. The graphite/fiberglass composite paddle face delivers power on demand and a 6 mm polypropylene core provides unmatched control on delicate drops and dinks. An ideal paddle for intermediate and advanced pickleball players, the shorter 4.5 inch handle allows for a larger hitting surface that translates into more control and ball striking power. The ION is a great paddle choice for table tennis players transitioning to pickleball.
