The USA Diller Wood Pickleball Paddle is the perfect choice for those looking for a basic wooden paddle to get started with pickleball. This paddle is created from strong, seven-ply hardwood and is unbelievably sturdy. The handle is extremely long which helps players reach those almost-too-far-away balls. There is a thin rope cord threaded through a hole at the bottom of the handle which players can use to wrap around their wrists to prevent flying paddles. This is an attractive paddle as well, featuring pickleball-esque dots on the far left side of the face with the text “Classic Diller” logo filling up the space.
The Diller Wood paddle tips the scales with an average weight of 11.2 ounces, with a range of 10.8 to 12.0 ounces. This paddle has a small grip of only 3-1/2” which makes it ideal for young people's smaller hands but disadvantageous to them due to the paddle's extremely heavy weight. This paddle measures 15-1/2” from top to bottom, and its face is 7-1/2” from one side to the other.
The USA Diller truly is a great choice for people who want a paddle to learn the basics of the game without spending a fortune.
