Since 2001 we've been perfecting the original Rio de Janeiro inspired Birch wood paddle. Using a proprietary marine-grade honeycomb structured wood enabled us to develop a paddle that is very light yet extremely durable. It also offers the largest sweet spot for fun play. A frescobol paddle, like a tennis racquet, like a baseball or cricket bat, has a sweet spot. When the rubber frescobol ball impacts the sweet spot, the force transmitted to the hand is reduced and the ball projects at greater accuracy.
Birch, Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany and new for 2017 our wood supplier engineered one in real Indonesian Teak. No wood holds up better to hot, humid and wet conditions like teak. It's exotic and my personal favorite! Check it out.
