The Flash paddle is the optimal intersection of Power, Grit, and Control. We have implemented the highest quality TORAY T700 raw Carbon Fiber and engineering to help you perform at the highest level on the pickleball court.

Using a single piece of 360-degree wrapped heat-pressed TORAY T700 carbon fiber, we provide a dominant yet sleek paddle while still maintaining a competitive price. Carbon fiber is stronger, more resistant to deformation under stress, and more resistant to fatigue and wear than fiberglass or graphite. Even through rigorous play, your Vatic Pro paddle will maintain its integrity, grit, and strength.

Vatic Pro-a terrific value

I've been using the Vatic Pro 14mm for three weeks and I'm enjoying the action I'm getting off the face of the paddle and the power from both forehand and backhand as well as the touch on my dinks and drops. I appreciate the opportunity to get such a quality paddle at such a terrific price.

Good feel for a 14mm paddle

I ordered the carbon fiber Pro in 14mm. I have always played with 16mm do to the soft feel. Most 14 mm feel like I’m hitting with a piece of plywood and hard on my elbow. But the Vatic Pro 14mm had a soft feel and I really could not tell much of a difference between a 16mm and this 14mm one. drops shots from the base lines are easy to do and even hard driven balls are handled pretty easily. I feel my hands are faster when battling at the kitchen and the 14mm moves pretty easy. I highly recommend this paddle and for such a good price. It’s worth every penny. This is my third Paddle I’ve bought from Vatic the others were Flash 16mm which family members all took from me when they saw how well Vatic paddles plays. I normally play Ronbus R1 Pulsar 16mm. I’m a 3.5+ player

Outstanding paddle at a great price

I spent probably too much time researching and trying new paddles. After all that, I decided that I enjoyed playing with the Vatic Flash 16mm the most. Excellent control, spin, and feel. The power is slightly lower than power paddles, but it's still very good. The 14mm has a little more pop and is slightly faster to move around, but there is slightly less control due to that higher pop. Both the 14mm and 16mm are great options and you cannot find a better paddle for the price!
