The Edge 18k Speed Pro features a revolutionary design, including a 14mm thickness and a 10mm US-sourced, cell size core. It also features the first paddle with a molded handle in the Diadem lineup. This unique configuration maximizes speed, power and responsiveness, while the 18K surface creates maximum spin, allowing players to unleash their best shot, every time.
