THE PROLITE DIFFERENCE
At PROLITE, we pride ourselves on being different. It’s not only part of our character, it is a goal of ours. Think about our rich history dating back to 1984. Arlen Paranto, the original creator of today’s pickleball paddle structure did not follow the other company’s lead and make wood pickleball paddles. He thought differently. He thought outside the box. His goal was to advance pickleball equipment and he did just that! He was light years ahead of the competition.
Fast forward 37 years later to the year 2021. While much of the game’s demographic and influence has changed becoming more mainstream across the world, the philosophy at PROLITE has remained constant. Be A Leader, Not A Follower. Research. Develop. Innovate. Curiosity drives us to investigate, then develop new ways of thinking. Enhance the player’s experience with pickleball paddles leading to a confident, controlled, and powerful shot selection. PROLITE continues to lead the market with innovative, technologically advanced paddles perfect for all backgrounds player’s styles.
LX SERIES – LUXURY & PERFORMANCE
A first of it’s kind in the pickleball paddle market. The Hyperweave Carbon Fiber of the LX Series utilizes a tighter cross weave interwoven with gold or silver fibers increasing uniform strength, speed, and consistency in each shot. Because it is constructed of a total of three layers of carbon fiber surrounding each side of the paddle core, it results in an overall 14 mm thickness improving feel, durability, and increased vibration dampening qualities. PROLITE’s flagship 14mm core thickness provides the optimum balance of feel and vibration absorption without sacrificing power like most thicker cored paddles.
POWERSPIN 2.0 SERIES – A PERFECT BLEND OF CONTROLLABLE POWER
We saw a need in the market. Too many fluffy names pertaining to technology. There a ton of new players coming into the game. Many backgrounds. They do not want to be overwhelmed when buying a pickleball paddle. Currently, there are so many choices and consumers are smart! Our inspiration was to utilize a new type of fiberglass that was more forgiving, felt more control and added touch, and thickened up the overall paddle resulting in increased crispness and vibration absorption. The perfect blend! Why in the world would someone buy a paddle that is the same shape, same construction, but different weight or thicker/thinner, and have a “control” paddle versus a heavier version and call it a “Power” paddle? Some companies do that. We do not. Why not have both? Well now you do with the PowerSpin 2.0 Series.
OUR INNOVATIVE HANDLE TECHNOLOGY
While most companies (even well known companies in the industry) continue to use basic balsa wood handles used for model airplanes or foam handle parts, both of which compress and eventually break down, we decided to take the proactive approach and do what we have always done since the beginning. Innovate. Create. Improve. Lead. Our new handle technology is not only different and better. It is superior.
- Superior handle design
- Engineered to perform at any level
- Made of LDPE – Low Density Polyethylene material
- Designed with Innovative Rib Technology
- Will not breakdown like foam and balsa handles (keeping shape and weight constant)
- Unlike any other handle it will give both cushioning as well as support
- More comfortable
- Allows to conform to the players hand without flat spots like balsa and foam used by many of the other paddle manufacturers
- Does not absorb moisture and sweat
- Keeps it original shape
- Made with recyclable material, a greener alternative
PROLITE’s CUSTOM PICKLEBALL BRANDED END CAPS
Made from the same materials as our innovative handle technology, we stepped up our game…again. As we analyzed our competition’s end caps, we saw many types and shapes from actual pipe fitting plugs meant for plumbing companies (crazy, we know) to tennis retread end caps made from very hard, intrusive plastics. So intrusive that it led to it digging into one’s hands while playing. Not very comfortable. However, when it comes to shape, we decided that we need to involve backgrounds from tennis, table tennis, racquetball, squash, platform tennis, and padel, BUT still putting out an authentic PROLITE feel to it.
- Hexagonal and rectangular hybrid design meant for all player backgrounds transitioning to pickleball
- Will not crack like many other end caps
- Softer feel of LDPE eliminating any digging in to one’s hand or palm
- Will form to player’s hand offering a flexible, comfortable option
- Muscle memory technology
- Embossed with the PROLITE seal of approval
