Get to know Diadem Pickleball
Pickleball has been rapidly gaining popularity in recent years, and with this growth comes an increase in the number of brands offering paddles. One such brand is Diadem Pickleball, which began manufacturing tennis racquets in 2015 and entered the pickleball market in 2019. With the recent introduction of the Warrior Paddle, which is considered the thickest paddle on the market at 19mm, Diadem Pickleball is a brand to keep an eye on.
One of the things that sets Diadem apart is their focus on quality control, which they bring from their experience in the tennis industry. In their Icon Paddle, you can see the same HMT carbon fiber that they use in their high-end tennis racquets. The company also offers replaceable edge protectors, which are not common in the pickleball market, but are a necessity in tennis.
Diadem's first pickleball paddle was the Icon, which has a slimmer core than your average paddle at just 12mm. Recently, the new Warrior paddle was introduced, which has a thicker core than average at 19 mm. These two paddles were designed with different types of players in mind. The Warrior's three separate core layers provide both control and power, making it the ideal choice for players looking for stability and touch. On the other hand, the thinner core of the Icon is perfect for players who want to add more power to their strokes. The Icon paddle also features a unique replaceable 3-piece edge guard that mounts flush.
While Diadem plans to offer other paddles with similar features, the molded construction required for the replaceable edge guard limits options in terms of weight. In addition, Diadem Pickleball is committed to bringing the highest quality paddles to market, pushing the boundaries of the norm while promoting this beautiful sport.
