I definitely play at a higher level with this paddle. What really sets this paddle apart is control and spin. My ability to precisely dink is dramatically improved, and I’ve left people shocked at how the ball bounces away at a right angle when I give it a ton of spin.


Whether you’re a casual player or a serious competitor, this pickleball paddle delivers on every front – value, durability, and design. I can confidently recommend it to anyone looking to elevate their pickleball experience.


Amazing paddle, pop is great, spin is great, power is great!


I’ve used the Ben Johns Joola Pro paddle before, and decided to give the Dark Horse paddle a try based on a recommendation from a friend. It’s excellent! I Great balance of power and control. I liked the Joola, but LOVE this paddle! Best paddle I’ve used.  What a great price also!!
