I cant wait until the Heritage is approved, people are blown away with what I can do with that paddle.

In response to our post on paddle width.

I can attest to the performance. After a few sessions using the 86T I'm impressed with my speed and control. Third shot drops are more consistent and "near the top" shots are more likely to clear the net. Size matters in some things but not all things.

Hi Chris, We love our new paddles and got to try them out against each other today.  We ‘re so glad we made the trip to St. Mary’s.  It was great meeting you and we appreciate all the time you spent explaining the paddles to us, letting us try the different models out and making sure we got the paddles that would work best for us.  Thanks again

I've only seen paddles for sale made in  the %-+&$-$&+#, so it's great to see a local Ontario pickleball paddle maker. I have and love the Heritage 75 paddle (non-sponsored!) & wish you and the company all the best!

I loved the feel and grip of the Retro 65 paddle.  It is so important that I get a good quality grip and that’s not something you get with a lot of other companies.

re: Heritage 75
Used the paddle 3 times now. Like it alot.  Love the feel and soft touch it gives  me.  Thanks again for such a nice work of art and technical precision.  Had a few inquiries about where I purchased it. Hope they lead to more business

One of our customers cracked the trim on his paddle so we sent him replacement trim.
“Hi Chris,
After watching your video, it was unbelievably easy.  Looks great!  We will save the extra trim for later.  We are still enjoying our paddles. I switched back to my Pla#ers paddle one night because it was extremely damp out and I didn't want to ruin my Brick House paddle, I could not believe how much it seemed like I was playing with a piece of lumber.  I used to love that paddle before I got my Brick House.
Thank you for your awesome customer service.  Happy holidays to you and yours and all the best for 2021”

Had to sneak my Retro 85T Cherry out to play before my wife wraps it and puts under the Christmas tree.  Initial thoughts on taking it out of the box were that it is well made. Grip size was perfect and very soft. The look of the wood is beautiful.  The paddle is light and very well balanced. 
During play I was pleased with the power. I have been using a Prokennex paddle which I think has good power but the T85 is It's equal there. I did find that there was less spin than my other paddle. I still got a lot of spin with the T85 which was surprising because of the smooth face . What little I lost in spin was more than made up for in touch and feel at NVZ. I have never hit better dinks or drops than I did today. 
I'll admit I asked for the T85 for Christmas because it looked cool and it's unique but I am extremely happy that it plays as good as it looks! 
p.s. I got the lighter model intending to add lead tape to it like my other paddle. I tend to have the paddle twist in my hand on miss hits and hurt my wrist sometimes. Lead tape on my other paddles have helped but it's probably an issue with my grip. The T85 never twisted in my hand. So either I didn't miss hit any(doubtful) or the T85 does a better job absorbing miss hits.

I have played with the Brick House Paddles Retro 65 T USAPA Approved - Purple People Eater grip size 4-4.125 for the summer outside season. I have grown to appreciate the solid construction of the paddle and how it feels in my hand. When the pickleball hits the surface of the paddle the deep sounds are welcomed and very different from my former paddle that is tinny.

Due to the slightly smaller face of the paddle than my other paddle, it has improved my skills in movement on court and tracking the ball. I have built up my play and confidence and have begun to play with the advanced players.

I've tried most of the Canadian paddles now (Brick*House, Apex, Manta, and Combat). I like a few things about the Brick*House that make it stand out over the others:

- The wood is delightful and pretty, a nice change from the goofy graphics prevalent in most of the industry.
- It is narrow in shape with a generous sweet spot, it reminds me of a table tennis paddle in some ways. I find it very easy to move quickly and prefer it for my indoor games over any other paddle.
- As the face is wearing, I'm finding that the surface is getting tackier and I'm able to generate ample amounts of spin.
- The grip shape is fantastic and leaves me feeling in control.

It also feels great to brag about having a paddle manufactured in Canada -- that's not very common and for less than twice the price of something you can get at a big box store!

I look forward to future Brick*House paddle shapes.

 I am impressed with both its looks and I
noticed a difference in the short game. Dinking has been one of my
weaker points, though I have many, and the paddle seems to work better
for me with the dinking. Do not know why. I would rate myself as a 3
to 3.5 level player, I do not have the skill or talent to distinguish
the difference between my previous paddle or the Bad Ash with the
longer shots. The handle does feel really good with good gripping
power when needed. I am proud to use a paddle with some real wood in
its construction.
Keep up the good work'

I've been playing with my Retro 85T for a few months now and I quite like it. I'm around a 4.0 player and had been using a Paddletek Helo. I thought I'd try a shorter paddle and force myself to find a little extra quickness and accuracy at the net. My game does feel better and I'm, also, happy with the power of the Retro 85T. Of course, everyone comments on the beauty of the paddle, so that's a plus too.

From what I have seen I believe the Brick House Retro 65 paddle quality and build is first rate and I am sure it is on the 85 model as well. There is a good story to sell it with, wood and truly Canadian made. Plus the paddle plays solid and sets itself apart from a lot of the other paddles.

My old paddle was pretty beat up so needed a new one. I wanted something manufactured in Canada. I found Brickhouse in a search. I decided on the Retro 85T. It was the weight I wanted and the look of the paddle is great. So we stopped in St. Mary’s on one of our road trips and fortunately Chris had one available.
I’ve played with it now several times. The weight is right on for me. You can tell from the deep thunk and the feel when contact is made with the ball that the construction is superb. Several of the people I play with have tried it out and all are as impressed as I am with it.
I’m pretty hard on my paddles. They get pretty chewed up after about a year. When I do that to this 85T I can guarantee I’ll be going back for another one.

Our Tuesday morning play was rained out and the guys suggested we play Thursday. So yesterday I put the Retro 85T to the test. I am going to be using one of the 85T’s as the demo paddle for folks to try.
OMG!!...I am very excited about this 85T paddle. An all around great paddle for feel,touch and “pop” when needed. I must say you are on to something here. I will be tying it again this coming Tuesday when the guys come again. I will give you more feedback then.
Right now thou it has become my paddle of choice.
Thanks for getting me onboard with you guys, can’t wait to get out and around so others can be introduced to your paddles.

The paddle has a very solid sweet spot and the ball pops off of it with great strength.  I noticed that the vibrations of the ball hitting the paddle face is dampened - there are players who like this dampened feel and others who appreciate that extra connection of the paddle to the hand. As for the balance of the paddle during singles I found the balance provides a very satisfactory swing speed. My ground strokes were clean and accurate.

I LOVE my purple paddle! It really improved my game! The paddle weight and medium grip (I opted for this) works really well for me. My husband has a blue paddle and requested it to be a little more on the heavier side for all of the outdoor play that we have been doing during the pandemic. He loves it so much and ordered a cherry one with a lighter weight for indoor play. These are quality hand made paddles yet carefully crafted to meet regulation requirements. Buy one–you will not be disappointed!

I love my Awesome Orange Retro 65T paddle. Very solid feel, good control, power and touch. Looks amazing too. Great job Brick House Paddles and the website is great.

I absolutely love my Brickhouse paddle. The colour is perfect. I would highly recommend this paddle for both beginners and experienced players. The weight makes it easy to handle, yet it’s heavy enough to make those hard shots when necessary. Every pickleball player should have one of these paddles in their collection. 
Barb N St Marys, On

Received paddle yesterday. Very impressed with appearance, even better than pictures. Seems to play well. Nice weight. Don’t think I will be the only one on our court with one of these for long.

Couldn’t be happier. When I first got my paddle I found the grip was to large. A week later the folks at Brickhouse followed up on my paddle and I mentioned the grip. They asked me to send it back, modified the grip for me no charge, and sent it back. Now that’s service. Paddle is great too

I have 2 of these babies, “one for each hand” I have become unbeatable”🤣. Seriously, I have noticed a marked improvement in the control of my shots particularly with the long shot. I recommend these paddles.

I saw your face book page and thought I would try out your Retro 65 T paddle this week. I am currently using a Selkirk Invikta Mid Weight. I am a 3.5- 4.0 player playing both recreational and tournament play. I played for 3 hours with the 65 T that I picked up at Courtside sports in Victoria to demo.
I liked the idea it was made in Canada and also the wood face. This paddle felt very solid and along with a soft touch at the net during dinking. It take take me a little time to adjust to the power when hitting deep shots but you could feel the wood played a factor in that, once it I did it felt great.
The only wish would be if you could develop a longer version like the Invikta , I find the extra length does give an advantage in Singles and Tournament play.
With the quality and price point of of the 65T I would recommend it to all recreational players for sure
