After using the Play Nettie Pro paddle extensively, I can confidently say that this paddle is a game-changer in the world of pickleball. The pro power uses 18k twilled raw carbon fiber, while the pro control uses 3k twilled. This is the leading technology in surface materials for pickleball paddles. The high-end carbon fiber surface is the most durable around. My personal favorite is their pro power paddle which is slightly less thick but allows for greater power and pop. Overall, the design is very clean, the handle feels smooth, and the performance is equivalent to a paddle in its price range.
