300A-XL by Selkirk Sport

Wide hitting surface with an aluminum honeycomb core and a graphite face.  It is one of the quieter paddles on the market as it is topped with a layer of premium vinyl. This quieter hitting surface is ideal for communities with noise regulations. Chic design with an extra low profile edge guard. Finished with a 4 ½" Gamma Pro Lite Grip and a large hex end cap for a secure hold on the paddle.

Rocket XL by Pro-Lite Sports

http://www.pickleballcellar.com/Rocket-XL-PPF-PL-RocketXL.htm
Released at Nationals 2014: The huge trampoline effect has the ball flying off of this paddle! This has the highest trampoline effect of any paddle in the Pro-Lite line. Player Type: Any player that wants a lot of pop to accelerate their shots. Great for players that like a heavier paddle that will do much of the work for them due to the high trampoline.
