2015 Cyber Monday Sale! Included the paddle, drawstring bag, and keychain/carabiner.
Weight range 7.0 to 7.5 oz. Price range $70-85. Purchased at PickleballCentral.com.
– Same core as the Bantam EX-L (bigger brother)
– Weight is lower than both the Paddletek Bantam EX-L and the Paddletek Element.
– Same handle as the bigger brother. (no red ridges/smooth)
– I like the lower weight range and more uniformed design of this paddle compared to the Element’s and the EX-L’s.
– In general I feel like all 3 paddles are pretty similar and the weight is the main factor.
***A future review/comparison between the Element and the TS-5 will be done in more detail when more testing and further use can be done.
