SuperNova Pro - Black Diamond Series

This stunning paddle includes all the best, highly sought after qualities coveted by advanced and professional players. From its beautiful, 100% woven carbon fiber surface - perfect for finesse shots and enhanced spin, to the top grade high performance polymer, honeycomb core - resulting in longer life and a ton of power – the SuperNova is set to be a dominating tool that will enhance player's skills on any pickleball court.

Perfect for tennis players transitioning to pickleball, the SuperNova is slightly heavier than the average pickleball paddle and balanced similarly to a tennis racquet. Many that have used the SuperNova have said it is as if you are playing with the strings of a tennis racquet. Made of the same material as the Titan Pro, the SuperNova’s playability is scientifically proven. The one-of-a-kind, woven carbon fibers of the surface “grab” the ball, despite its glossy smooth surface. Heat, direction of the fibers, pressure, velocity and impact all affect ball control resulting in a superior user experience.

    Paddle is comfortable in weight and grip. Would recommend this product to friends up to pro level.

    It’s tad heavier than titan pro but larger and sweet spot is bigger most notable during hard volleys. So the motto bigger is better applies

    The SuperNova is either the best or 2nd best paddle on the market in my opinion. Depends on your style of play but you're looking at the SuperNova or Titan as your best tournament paddle.

    I've fallen in love with the sound the ball makes coming off of the graphite fiber face. I don't ever want to play with any other surface or face.

    If you are coming with a tennis background I think you'll prefer the SuperNova over any paddle.

    If you have a ping pong background you'll also prefer the SuperNova.

    Best touch on my 3rd shot of any paddle I've tried.

    I started playing pickleball with a mid price range paddle. A few broke and a few just didn't hold up well. I tried several different brands and styles at a higher price range, when the supernova showed up that was the last paddle I demoed. It has held up well and I've been playing with it hard for a year and half. I have rewrapped the handle several times. The face is showing some wear but not excessive. The edge guard is loosening a little bit, but these are tools for a game, and all tools wear with use. Very happy with the durability/playability of the supernova.

    The first day, I played 3 hours with the paddle. I was pleasantly surprised that the grip shape felt very comfortable. I love the feel and touch of the carbon fiber, plus the large sweet spot of this paddle. It’s given me more control at the NVZ in both dinking and blocking banger shots, the extra spin and power it can produce when I need it is a huge bonus. After 3 weeks of play, this paddle has definitely improved my game and I will be recommending it to other players in our club. I’m looking forward to my first spring tournament.

    Supernova Review

    Posted by Theodore Wyshyvanuk on Dec 13th 2018

    Just received the Supernova paddle a few days ago, and I'm totally impressed both with the its quality and its "playability". Excellent ball control and a sweet spot the size of Rhode Island. My girlfriend tried it for a few games, and has asked (demanded) one for a Christmas present. Thanks, again!!!

    Love this paddle. Luckily the great staff was able to find me a paddle on the lighter side. Really feel like this paddle "absorbs" the hard shots and provides all the power I need w/o losing quickness at net!

    I have found this to be a great paddle. It does a lot of the work for you the way it is designed. It doesn't take much to get the ball back over the net. It does take a little bit of getting used to as you have to soften up your shot a little bit since the paddle does a good bit of the work. It provides good power for a drive shot, great for blocking drive shots, yet still gives you control for the short game.

    Love this paddle. I learned on a Selkirk and really had my heart set on another one. The Selkirk paddle I was using was discontinued when a friend let me use the Pro lite. The sweet spot the control I had was amazing. It is heavier then I'm used to but really it has not been an issue at all. People care coming up to me asking about this paddle. Totally #10 for me! And adding the sweat grip!!! Perfect!
