Diadem Edge 18K Standard


The Diadem Edge 18K Standard Pickleball Paddle enhances the original and highly sought-after Edge 18K with increased power and reach, catering to players who thrive on dominating their opponents with aggressive drives. Addressing the demands of such players, the paddle incorporates thermo-formed construction, positioning carbon fiber around the paddle’s edges beneath the Rib Edge Guard. This construction method ensures a uniform response across the surface, producing heightened power.

Renowned for its effectiveness, the 3D 18K Carbon Fiber hitting surface wraps around the edge, providing a hitting area measuring 10.7″ in length and 7.5″ in width. This surface amplifies power by imparting energy onto the ball and enhances control by compressing the ball and facilitating comfortable spin in any direction.
