Diadem Warrior - 3 ply core thickness and a texture that shreds the ball, welcome the Warrior.
The Diadem Warrior pickleball paddle takes control to a whole new level! This heavy-weight pickleball paddle features Diadem’s 3X Core and thick frame for a super solid and stable feel. Power generation is easy due to the mass at impact and the gritty surface helps you control the ball’s direction for super-specific shot direction. A well-defined beveled handle that measures 4-1/8″ in circumference feels great in the hand for a secure grip that is comfortable, even after hours of play.
The 3X Core refers to three different honeycomb types that are sandwiched to achieve a 19mm core thickness for an incredible solid and stable feel. The three layers include outer layers of polymer honeycomb with a layer of nomex honeycomb sandwiched in the middle. Before the Warrior this sort of thickness wasn’t achievable without an enormous grip, however, the Taper Tech molded handle has allowed the Warrior to have a comfortable and slim 4 1/8th grip size.
Add in the unique Grit Paint for excellent spin potential and the Warrior becomes the most complete paddle on the market. While the paddle is on the heavy side at 8.5 ounces the balance and comfort of the design makes it easy to wield. As with the Icon the Warrior uses the highest quality carbon fiber, Polypropylene honeycomb, and introduces the Aramid / Nomex honeycomb for power.
