The Barricade has a shape and size similar to the Classic, but has a completely different feel. Having the largest possible hitting surface, competitors can play without fear of a miss-hit caused by a thick edge guard. This edgeless paddle, with a sportier look is much lighter and quieter than the classic pickleball paddle. It is capable of hitting the ball hard but it excels at the soft "touch shots" that can make the difference between winning and losing a game! Its light weight allows players to enjoy the sport for longer periods of time.
I purchased this paddle because it didn't have a trim on it and it was the same size as the wooden paddle that i started with.
alot lighter and have to adjust for the weight differencea.
It stated in the information that if you hit a object with the paddle it will brake;,(ground,net other than the ball.) Hadn't read that in the info on the page on product info.
so far it seem to be a good product.

Had a problem with the edge banding and Pickle Pro wasted no time in replacing it. A product is only as good as the company that stands behind it. That's why I'm a Pickle Pro customer for life! Herb Brown on 11th May 2015
I'm very happy with the PicklePro Barricade paddle! It's nice and light, but has plenty of hitting power. The edgeless feature is a plus, and is very well designed.
I plan on using this paddle for a long time!
I also should mention that Shipping was very fast. Great service PickelPro! Brett on 4th May 2015
I'm a new player to the Pickle Ball scene. My choice of a Pickle Pro paddle was primarily based on the ease of reviewing paddles on their web site. All the information I was seeking was readily available.
I am pleased with the performance of the paddle I'm hoping to rise to the level if will produce Larry Butler on 21st Mar 2015
My paddle which I purchased in April, 2014 broke just above the handle.
Sent a e-mail, concerning a design fault, 3 hrs later Picklepro ask where to send the new paddle.
3days later a new paddle without charge.This what I call excelent customer service.
I love the paddle

I have played with it for a month(2-3 times a week) and I really like it and my friends have tried it and it is hard to get it back from them. Ed Beran on 30th Nov 2014
I love the lightweight feel but, also feel that more weight in the center and head of the paddle face would provide sharper and faster returns.
Responsiveness and punctuality of the order was exemplary! RMc on 17th Jun 2014
I really like your firm's pickleball paddle. The soft sound and feel are the best features. Black on Black is very sexy.
Only complaint is that it could be a little heavier at the end for more power shots. Angy on 26th Dec 2013
I just want to let you know I received your new paddles, the Barricade in record time.
You are wonderful, the kind of company I like to deal with.
The Barricade is the best light paddle I have ever seen.
Keep up the good work.
I can't wait for your new products please let me know A.S.P. when a new product is made . Mike Manser on 8th Nov 2013
