Having played with regular wooden pickle ball rackets, these graphite paddles are a fantastic upgrade. Play is lively and we love the solid, light feel of the paddles! The 2 paddle, 3 ball set comes with its own handled carrying case. A nice touch! We had initial issues with 2 premature ball breakages, but the owner of the company immediately responded to our message, and sent us three new replacement balls, a partial reimbursement check AND a hand written note thanking us for being good customers! We love our new rackets and really respect this vendor for their extraordinary customer service. We highly recommend this company and their product!
