Good Training Paddle Douglas S. Intermediate

Pros: The size of the paddle face makes me have to watch the ball hit the paddle every time, otherwise I mis hit the ball on the edges of the paddle or miss the ball entirely.

Cons: I wish that this training paddle came in a standard length (15-3/4”) and an elongated length (16-1/2”). You can customize the training paddle with lead tape to customize it to the weight of paddle that you are using.

Already making a difference David Ramirez Intermediate

Pros: This training paddle really helps you focus on how you take your shots and the overall positioning of the paddle. Whether it be in the ready position, or as you swing. Personally, I think the paddle has the perfect dimensions for training purposes. Once you have your swing dialed in you can get good topspin and backspin from the paddle as well. Highly recommend it, and if you use it in an actual game you will have a lot of fun and laughs with it.

Cons: I only have two issues with the paddle. The first is the construction of the handle. The two sides of the handle feel hollow and aren't as comfortable as most modern pickleball paddles. The second "con" is more of a personal preference thing. These paddles are lighter than normal paddles, and much lighter than mine. At first, I was having a lot of issues switching between this and then going to my regular paddle for games. I ended up adding a lot of lead tape to the paddle, which has been holding up well on the edge guard, but since the paddle head is so high it makes the paddle head heavier than the balance I have with my paddle. Not a huge deal, but something to maybe make note of since adding the weight to the head makes drops a lot more difficult.

Great Training Aid that's Very Practical Dana Forseth Beginner

Pros: Can see instant results after only 1 practice session. Very comfortable grip. Swing weight and "feel" mimics that of a full size paddle. Has definitely assisted me with my control and technique. Can actually play real pickleball with it.

Cons: Would have been nice if an option for a cover was available. Maybe adding a couple different color options.

About the Brand

Franklin Sports got its start in 1946 as a regional brand of sporting goods products. Irving H. Franklin, who co-founded Franklin Sports with his brother Sydney Franklin, brought the innovative idea of centering a complete line of products on a single athlete - Joe Namath. Over the years Franklin has affiliated with the best in sports, including world-class athletes like Sugar Ray Leonard, David Robinson, and Barry Bonds.

The breakthrough for Franklin and the batting gloves came when Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt and Irving Franklin teamed up to create the basic design that is still the preferred glove of most major league hitters. Irving Franklin went to Clearwater, Florida, to meet with Schmidt during spring training in 1983. Together, they worked tirelessly to make sure that the materials and design were perfected, so collaboratively the two were the first authors. At that time, most players wore no gloves. A few wore a single golf style glove, but no company offered a product specifically designed for the needs of professional players. Franklin today is the industry leader as the premier batting glove company, and custom fits batting glove for MLB players.

In 1982, when Franklin signed Mike Schmidt, Irving Franklin asked: "How can I get the name Franklin on field at the Major League level?" Schmidt suggested putting the name on the back to maximize exposure, and then helped to design the glove for lasting success at the major league level.
