The graphite material is lightweight helping you to move quickly across the court and at the net, while the reactive surface creates added speed and pop regardless of your shot choice. In addition, the paddle face features an over-sized sweet-spot which helps ensure all of your pickleball shots connect perfectly – which is further helped by the wide-boy paddle design. The paddle face is protected by Onix’s 1/4″ overlapping edge guard which protects the paddle against miss-hits on hard court surfaces.
Like all good graphite pickleball paddles, the Onix Z5 pickleball paddle will keep your opponents guessing, especially during quick exchanges.
The core of the Onix Z5 Graphite Pickleball Paddle is a Nomex Honeycomb Core. This Nomex core ensures that the Onix Z5 packs a punch wherever you are on-court.

If you are looking for a solid feel that is consistent regardless of your pickleball shot, then the Onix Z5 is a great option.
Dimensions & Weight
