Designed for: Pop, Soft feel, Power and Control
What do we say about this paddle. WOW, it’s absolutely amazing! With over a year of development and testing we are blown away with not just its exceptional performance but its feel.
“The 87 has power that is reserved in the waiting for when it is needed. It is responsive and offers direction like no other paddle I have seen. It is exceptional for both deep serves, returns, ground strokes and dinking. It really is an exceptional piece of work.” LM
Our Retro 87 elongated series paddles are crafted with a natural cherry wood playing surface over a fiberglass substructure and a 12mm high-density poly core.
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 excellent 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 87 model are designed for those who don’t mind sacrificing some paddle width in exchange for increased reach and prefer to have the power and sweet spot more toward the head of the paddle
The Retro 87 paddle is an excellent all-around choice, for beginners and players up to approximately a 4.0 skill level.
If you’re looking for something truly distinctive to stand out from the crowd, the RETRO series is an excellent choice.
