While the original TS-5 is an amazing paddle, this new Bantam TS-5 Pro takes the performance up to a whole new level! Using Paddletek’s ground breaking 916 Pro core, this paddle creates a larger, more consistent sweet spot so that you’re ready to return any shot! The 916 Pro Core is thicker than the prior TS-5, a full 9/16” thick (vs 1/2” on the original). This increased core thickness spreads the ball impact energy out in a more consistent way, giving the paddle better play across the entire face.
Of course, this is a TS-5, so this Pro edition doesn’t give up what made the TS-5 famous to begin with. The paddle is designed for folks who want a high performance paddle that isn’t head heavy. The original TS-5 is known for exceptional touch and control, with good power, in a light-weight package, and this new TS-5 Pro maintains what was great about the original, but with a bigger, more consistent sweet spot, and increased shot making control.
Another great aspect of this Pro version, is how you can personalize the paddle specific to your liking with the option of weight ranges. The Light version averages around 7.3 ounces, with weights ranging from 7.0 to 7.5 ounces. But if you want a bit more power, while staying under 8.2 ounces, the standard weight paddle averages around 7.8 ounces, and comes in a range from 7.6 to 8.1 ounces.
This weight option accommodates a wider variety of players, so whether you want a lighter paddle for more speed or a heavier for more power you'll enjoy the best option for your needs.
This new Bantam TS-5 Pro shares a lot in common with its original TS-5 brethren. They both come with Paddletek’s limited lifetime warranty. They both are authentically made in the USA, and they most use trademark Paddletek polymer core technology. The new TS-5 Pro features a textured face fiberglass hybrid face with a UV coating to prevent breakdown and fading. The design comes with a black background which is covered with the Paddletek "P" and has a mesh-like pattern within its outline. The paddle name is displayed to the lower right.
