I really like this paddle, it has great touch for the soft game, yet drives and serves come off nice as well. Wish there were some different color options (other than teal or red). Thanks.
indeed The DIADEM WARRIOR Paddle is a revolution of the pickleball paddle. Designed with multiple new technologies developed by Diadem that enhance the playability of the modern paddle. for more info visit https://trizonsports.com/
Great spinner. Still trying to get the feel of the soft impact to get better control of my dinking
This paddle offers great balance, control and power all in one! With its hefty 8.5 oz weight I thought it would be difficult to quickly move the paddle for that defense or offensive moves. I was totally surprised how the paddle seemed so light and agile like my 7.8 paddles. You guys did it! Forever a fan. Respectfully CB
First impression out of box was a superior grip but a bit heavy (coming from a lightweight Selkirk Invicta with a bit of lead tape).
Fell in love with paddle within the first few strokes. Excellent control & very forgiving, yet ample power when called for. I find it has at least 90% of the Selkirk copious control but twice the power. That’s exactly what I had been looking for after my Selkirk seemed to always sap too much pop off my put-away shots.
While somewhat hefty, the Diadem Warrior is nicely balanced and I don’t find it to be a liability at the net during firefights.
While many consider Selkirk to be the most forgiving paddle, I prefer the Warrior. Again its balanced heft allows it to stay composed when hitting balls off-center. This with a large sweet spot gives me more consistency than ever I had before. Furthermore, the phenomenal handle has a strongly defined hexagonal shape that communicates paddle face direction & rubbery wrap provides a secure grip, even when hands get sweaty.
I’ve tested every extended length paddle on the market, including the new Joola Ben Johns CFS, CRBN, Engage MX 6.0, & Tempest Wave Pro but the Diadem Warrior beats them all (and it’s not even close in my book.)
I’ve been nipping at 4.0 play for over a year but never invited into the 4.0+ courts until recently. Several 4.0 & 4.5 players have taken notice of my game since using the Warrior. Two different 4.0/4.5 private groups just invited me in. It’s not a coincidence it happened after switching to the Diadem Warrior.
Great touch and spin control. Thanks for having the demo program. It closed the deal for me - as i decided to buy one
I did enjoy playing with this paddle. It hit good and the weight was great. But for 140.00 dollars for a paddle that has a few dents and visible wear and tear was a bit expensive for me. It played well though and I did enjoy it.
Love this paddle, definitely helping my game.
Great equipment and terrific customer support
Great paddle...control with power 🏓
I had the opportunity to demo the Warrior Edge and the Warrior. I really liked the Warrior and ended up going with that paddle over the Edge. The primary reason was the "pop" that I felt the Edge had. I seemed to overshoot my targets and consistently land outside the lines. I felt I had much more control over the Warrior. I am a 4.5 and have extensive experience. I had a few buddies try the Edge who were older and they liked it a lot because they did not have to swing as hard.
We loved the demos
We finally beat our rivals . Ordering a set for my wife and I
Such an easy program...ended up buying both paddles sent!!
I play with the Warrior which I love. I’m in the process of trying the Edge whic I alon like. I will probably keep one of each in my bag.
This paddle with its 16mm thickness provides lots of control but not much power. It surprisingly felt light in the hand and gives a soft touch. But I like the Diadem Icon better because I am more of a all-court player. Seem well built. Don't know if the edge guard design is more aerodynamic but it does give it a special look.
I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.
Loved it so much recommended to a friend who also bought!
This paddle is capable of making off center hits still controllable instead of them being completely dead or way off. I lost no power and it was night and day difference between this amazing paddle and my old “inferior” paddle.
4.5 player loves this paddle. Lots of comments from my opponents on the increased spin. Great graphics too!
Thanks for supporting the TTT Foundation. This paddle should be a hit worldwide!
