It is said that some players are so good, they could win against the opposition with a frying pan. If you aren't yet that good, you can at least try to look like you are with this unique conversation-starter of a paddle! 

 

The "bottom" of the paddle looks like the base of a modern frying pan, and the "top" contains some of our favorite breakfast items looking ready to eat! And while a frying pan isn't likely to be USA Pickleball approved any time soon, this paddle is already tournament ready with it's USA Pickleball approval "stamped" right in the bottom!

The Frying Pan paddle is based on our established Rogue2Q paddle. With its familiar "quad" shape and all the modern features of the Rogue2, the 'Q is the perfect paddle for the player who wants a wide paddle face and shorter overall length packed with the latest paddle technology.

The Rogue2 family of paddles are game-changing in more ways than one. Featuring the new and improved Second Generation Gel-Core technology, vibration-damping carbon fiber throat reinforcement, and massively increased durability, all with a price well below the competition, the Rogue2 lineup is a hit for players at all levels. 

The video below covers all of the features of the Rogue2. The Rogue2Q is the same paddle, just in a different shape.


Overview of the Rogue2 Gel-Core Paddle


The breakout hit Rogue is back! The all new Rogue2 paddle takes the already great Rogue and adds a new shape, improved Second Generation Gel-Core technology, vibration-damping carbon fiber throat reinforcement, and massively increased durability, all while keeping the cost well below the competition!

Gel-Core Second Generation Pickleball Paddle

The Second Generation Gel-Core improves the paddle in several measurable ways:

  • Larger Sweet Spot
  • Greater Paddle Stability on Ball Impact
  • Reduced Vibrations Transmitted to the Player's Hand
  • Softer Ball Impact Sound
  • Improved Durability over First Generation

We took the blueprint for the first generation Gel-Core, which was already a proven performer, and refined it further, giving it much increased durability along with improved vibration absorbing characteristics. If you aren't already familiar with the Gel-Core advantage, read all about Gel-Core, its benefits, and the test results.



Sweet Spot Mapping

At Players Pickleball, we believe that without hard evidence to back up a claim, that claim has little value. We use a bespoke testing fixture to measure the sweet spot in a way never before seen in the sport. Rather than relying on subjective test feedback, we can objectively measure the ball response at controlled locations across the paddle face. Below are the results of the Rogue2 Gel-Core sweet spot mapping tests.

Exclusive Vibration-Damping Carbon Fiber Throat Reinforcement 

Rogue2Q Vibration Damping Reinforced Throat

Unique to Players Pickleball paddles is the Rogue2's vibration damping carbon fiber throat reinforcement. This cutting edge innovation accomplishes two major performance improving enhancements:

  • Strengthening of the critical paddle face/handle junction - This is an inherent weak spot in almost all paddle designs as the thin handle portion of the paddle must manage all of the stress of countless ball impacts while remaining lightweight and small enough to accommodate the hands of all players, big and small. The addition of 6 total layers of carbon fiber at this critical junction on each side adds overall rigidity to the paddle while virtually eliminating handle breakages!
  • Vibration damping - The carbon fiber reinforcement is designed with a unique rubber-like material that is fused into the composite during layup. This material drastically improves the normally high frequency characteristics of carbon fiber and transforms it into a vibration absorbing component, isolating your hand from the impact of the ball on the paddle face. The graph below shows the drastic reduction in vibration by the Rogue2's unique throat reinforcement.

TMD - Targeted Mass Distribution

The Rogue line of paddles features "Targeted Mass Distribution". This means we can control where the paddle's mass is concentrated by moving it toward the edges of the paddle. We accomplish this through the locations of our Gel-Core infusion.
