The Paddletek Sweet Spot Ultra II Pickleball Paddle is produced with a composite polymer honeycomb core with fiberglass facings, and a highly dense laminate face. The Sweet Spot is an innovative design created to remove any excess baggage from the premium surface of the paddle. Essentially, it is just the sweet spot of the paddle. The round shape provides a more uniform return just about anywhere the ball strikes. The shape also provides more pop (similar to the difference between a round trampoline and one that is rectangle). The design also moves the premium playing surface of the paddle further from the handle creating more power without adding weight.
The Paddletek Ultra II series was launched in December, 2013 with a patterned laminate face and printed logo to replace the original Ultra which was solid and had a sticker logo.
Paddletek Ultra II Series
The playing surface on the Ultra II Series paddles is a highly dense laminate applied to the composite core. This dense over laminate gives the paddle more power and more pop (pop = bounce) without sacrificing control at the net.
The extra pop added to the Ultra paddle is not the trampoline effect pop of most paddles. The pop comes from the energy of the ball being transferred back to ball as it strikes something dense. This is why balls bounced off concrete will typically bounce higher than balls bounced off dirt. By increasing the pop of the paddle without increasing the "trampoline effect", players can enjoy the advantages of increased pop and control at the net.
The highly dense laminate also adds weight and power. Power = weight x velocity (paddle speed). Players who enjoy a heavier paddle will love the Ultra II Series. Currently Ultra Series paddles come in only one color: Black.
Paddletek Paddles are designed and manufactured to provide consistent, premium performance over an extended period of time. All paddles come with a one-year manufacturer's warranty and a unique five (5) year “no dead spot” guarantee. The construction of the paddle provides a larger, more consistent sweet spot with just the right amount of “pop” while not sacrificing control. The solid construction and materials help reduce vibrations and increase the paddles durability. Paddletek was the first major pickleball paddle manufacturer to produce a polymer (plastic) honeycomb core.
Currently the Sweet Spot Ultra II series is only available in black.
