Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court with the net set to a height of 34 inches using a perforated plastic ball and composite or wooden paddles about twice the size of ping-pong paddles. KitchenPro Pickleball is advancing the performance capabilities of the paddles with the introduction of BRUTALE FG (fiberglass face) and BRUTALE CF (carbon fiber face) open throat paddles.
KitchenPro’s new patent pending design is a transformation of current tennis racquet design. The BRUTALE FG (fiberglass) and BRUTALE CF (carbon fiber) models both feature polypropylene honeycomb core technology within their carbon fiber frames. The honeycomb core increases the thickness of the paddle, allowing better control for the user.
The carbon fiber tubular frame features an open throat, reducing wind resistance and creating less torque, allowing a smoother swing path and quicker swing speed. The net result is more power for the player. Additional benefits of the carbon fiber frame include a larger sweet spot than most pickleball paddles and a balanced paddle, improving the feel that the paddle is an extension of the arm and hand. Pickleball paddles are often weak in the neck and handle areas, and the use of composite materials in the paddles improves the structural integrity and reliability of the equipment
The fiberglass surface of the BRUTALE FG model allows the ball to stay on the paddle longer, providing steady control over shots. For a player looking for more power in their game, the BRUTALE CF model’s carbon fiber surface delivers extra pop and spin.
