Sample Buyer Review:

I am so happy with this paddle that it drove me to write my first review, ever. Some players will find the right paddle for themselves with their very first purchase. Many others, like me, are not so fortunate. In my case, it was paddle no. 5 that did the trick. I tried paddles from Gamma, Head and Selkirk. All were good paddles but just not right for me. As I found out, finding the paddle that is best for you can be very challenging. The paddle I love may very well not be to your liking at all. However, it was the Onix Z5 Mod that turned out to be the one for me. The information provided by the manufacturer states these paddles can weigh anywhere between 7.5 – 8.2 ounces.
