The DIADEM VICE PADDLE was designed to take the game of pickleball to the next level. This revolutionary new concept paddle includes technology never seen before in a pickleball paddle. The unique RP2 Grit Coating combines grit paint with a PU coating to lock in long lasting spin production. The Vice Paddle introduces the use of EVA foam as a core material giving the user the ultimate feel combined with power and control. Players no longer have to sacrifice power for control or spin for touch. The EVA foam also provides a unique, dampened sound that players will enjoy. Additionally, those players with arm issues who are avoiding stiff paddles will benefit from the softest paddle on the market.
The Vice paddle also introduces our new Core Molding System (CMS) which allows for an edgeless look and feel. Using molded high grade carbon fiber the sides of the paddle are protected with a unique proprietary material with the layers of the carbon fiber mold that is tough enough to handle ground scraping. The game of pickleball will never be the same once you experience it with the Vice paddle. A revolutionary paddle 5 years ahead of anything on the market today.
Not meant for USAP tournament play. This concept paddle is a glimpse into the future and the foundation of Diadem's tournament paddles launching in 2023.
