Electrum Model E Elite
The incredibly popularÂ Model E Graphite PaddleÂ is back and better than ever in the form of the Electrum Model E Elite paddle. This next-generation paddle continues the theme of the original by offering an elongated 16.5" by 7.5" shape for added leverage (for power) and reach near the kitchen, as well as an easily controllable 16mm thick core and raw carbon fiber face.
The big changes that take the Model E Elite to the next level are the Electrum FoamFit (perimeter foam injection) and thermoformed molding technology of this one-piece paddle. The injected edge foam balances the paddle and increases "twist weight" which keeps the paddle from torquing as much in the hand as a result of off-center ball strikes. Thermoforming results in increased durability and a solid feel. Combine these new features with Electrum's already well-known raw carbon fiber face material and whole-cell condensed polypropylene honeycomb core, and the result is a solid, forgiving, balanced, spin-happy, and highly durable pickleball paddle.
The 8.3 oz. average weight adds to the balanced controllable feel of the Model E Elite, while the 5.25" long and large 4.5" circumference of the ergonomic handle and leather grip limits hand cramps and lets you achieve the desired light pressure that leads to even more control. Electrum is known for the durability and performance of their paddles, and the Model E Elite builds nicely upon that legacy.
