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. 

Please note: we work to accommodate all custom weight requests. However, due to increased demand and limited inventory, exact weights are not guaranteed.

Flash Carbon Fiber (14mm)

My best paddle so far, its power is very good and it spins very well

Not a bad paddle

I bought this paddle and also own a 16mm Prism Flash. I thought this one would give me more power and, to be honest, I feel that I get more power and control from my Prism Flash. Maybe I needed to get the Flash Carbon 16mm instead, but for now I like my Prism Flash (and would give it 5 stars) more than my Flash Carbon and wish that my 14mm Flash Carbon was a 16mm. :(

My new go to!

I enjoyed the V7 for about 6mo’s because it was the body style I was used to. But when I tried the FLASH 14mm, I was blown away. I didn’t feel like I lost any length, but I definitely got more feedback, control and power. How can it improve on everything?!!! What I like the most is the swing weight. It just carves through the air. Very fast, just like it’s name. FLASH!!!!

Sweet spot is big , I put this paddle up there with my selkiirks and joolas

Very Happy!

14mm...only played with it 3x, but so far it's great. Seems to have great control, power is adequate for me, spin control very good. Tried Joola Vision - like this better and the price! I'm a 3.5 - 4.0 player, 69 yrs old.
