One of the most popular paddles on the market, the Z5 Composite packs plenty of power thanks to its slightly heavier weight. With an average weight of 8.8 ounces (249.48 grams) it creates a lot of plow through and in turn generates lots of power. The composite fibreglass hitting surface provides great feel and the Polypropylene Honeycomb core supplies a sturdy foundation. The widebody shape extends the width of the paddle face to 8 1/8" producing a large forgiving sweetspot. A great paddle for heavy hitters and those that strive to be heavy hitters.
