Designed for: Light weight, Agility, Pop, Soft feel, and Control
Our Retro 85 paddles are light weight and designed for agility and speed. The light weight makes it a very fast paddle and an easy paddle to play. This can be a huge bonus for those with a few aches and pains in the arm and shoulder.
The inherent beauty of cherry wood, coupled with the golden amber finish, enhances the distinctiveness of these paddles, making them as visually appealing as they are functional on the court.
The combination of cherry wood and fiberglass in this paddle delivers a supremely comfortable feel, providing ample pop for players seeking added power while maintaining good control.
The surface finish, along with the cherry wood playing surface in our Retro series, generates substantial spin without the need for added textures. While other paddles may feature applied textures for immediate spin, they often degrade quickly. Our commitment to quality prioritizes durability over temporary advantages, ensuring long-term performance.
The size and shape of the 85T is smaller than the 87 and is designed for agility and speed while maximizing the size of the sweet spot and focusing it more in the center of the paddle length.
The Retro paddle is an excellent all-around choice, for beginners and players up to approximately a 4.0 skill level looking to get to the ball faster.
