Made in Japan, Yonex pickleball paddles are built to the same exacting standards as Yonex's tennis racquets. Using high-grade carbon fiber over a poly-carbonate honeycomb core, both the Ezone and Vcore models provide excellent power and feel. Unlike other brands, Yonex's unique layup in a multi-layer carbon face ensures there are no dead spots on the hitting surface. In addition, Yonex pickleball paddles provide huge spin effect through the use of a sticky surface coating designed specifically to stick the plastic used in pickleball balls. This is the state-of-the-art.
