The Bantam Sabre Pro Pickleball Paddle is the hardest-hitting paddle in the Paddletek Bantam Series. Designed in collaboration with National Champion and US Open Triple Crown Winner, Scott Moore, the Sabre Pro is built to create epic leverage and shot speed. The Bantam Sabre Pro is an ideal pickleball paddle for singles players as the paddle length sits at 16.5″ making it a long paddle that is designed for shot speed and increased power during ball-contact. Likewise, the Bantam Sabre Pro features an extra-long paddle handle that reduces space on the paddle face but gives you great leverage reach and aerodynamic qualities on-court. Like the Bantam Ex-L and the Bantam TS-5, the Sabre Pro has a velvet-textured polycarbonate paddle face and features the SRT Core that sits at the heart of the other Pro paddles in the Paddletek Bantam range.
If you are a player that often plays singles matches, with a focus on power, speed and control then you will love the Paddletek Bantam Sabre Pro pickleball paddle. Check out our complete Paddletek Bantam Sabre Pro Pickleball Paddle review to find out why so many pickleball players are shifting their focus to longer paddles.
Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The Paddletek Bantam Sabre Pro Pickleball Paddle features a Velvet-Textured Polycarbonate paddle face which helps to hold the pickleball so that you can create great emphasis with your shots. Whether you are looking to place the pickleball with spin or power, the Velvet-Textured paddle face creates optimal cushioning and ball-contact to put away your shots every time. On top of this, the polycarbonate paddle face material provides consistency during ball-striking and gives you excellent paddle ‘pop’ when you are looking to snap the pickleball away quickly.
The Bantam Sabre Pro paddle face is protected by Paddletek’s 1/8″ edged shock edge guard. The Paddletek edge guard not only helps improve the life-span of the Sabre Pro but also helps to reduce shock in the paddle when you strike the pickleball – this creates a smoother and more consistent touch in the Bantam Sabre Pro paddle.
The Paddletek Bantam Sabre Pro Pickleball Paddle core utilizes Paddletek’s Bantam SRT Core technology. Constructed from Advanced High-Grade Polymer Composite Honeycomb, the Bantam SRT provides even greater consistency and power in the Sabre Pro. Everything about the Bantam Sabre Pro paddle is designed to provide power, shot speed and leverage, and this starts with the SRT core. When striking the ball from the back of the court or overhead, you will generate significant power, while at the net, the Bantam Sabre Pro provides a soft touch and feel.
If you are looking for a paddle that is fast and controlled, it might be worth checking out the lighter Bantam TS-5 or the better all-rounder, the Bantam Ex-L. However, if you are looking for a paddle that is built for power, then the Bantam Sabre Pro is for you.
Dimensions & Weight
The Paddletek Bantam Sabre Pro Pickleball Paddle is a middleweight paddle, weighing between 7.9 – 8.4 ounces. While the Bantam Sabre Pro is slightly heavier than some other middleweight paddles, it generates more power playing ground stroked and smash shots. Likewise, the paddle measures 16.5″ long and has a 7 3/8″ wide paddle face, making it an elongated pickleball paddle. This gives you brilliant aerodynamic qualities that will benefit anyone who swings the pickleball paddle hard and fast often. In fact, the Bantam Sabre Pro paddle length sets the paddle apart as one of the best paddles in it’s class.
Handle & Grip
The Paddletek Bantam Sabre Pro Pickleball Paddle has a long paddle handle that measures 6 1/4″. This oversized paddle handle helps you achieve greater reach and leverage on-court. Whether you are diving for a ball or smashing the pickleball overhead, you will find the paddle handle a big help in greater leverage in your swing. The Sabre Pro is also available in two grip sizes, either standard or thin. The thin grip measures 4 1/8″ in circumference, while the standard grip measures 4 3/8″. Depending on your preference, you have the flexibility to pick up a paddle grip that suits you.
The Bantam Sabre Pro paddle handle is wrapped in Paddletek’s Ultra Cushion High Tack Performance Grip. The perforated surface of the grip helps to draw moisture away from your palm during gameplay, while the cushioning helps to make the grip comfortable and hard-wearing.
