The Vatic Pro Flash paddle series has been creating a buzz in the pickleball market, and for good reason. Known for its formidable performance, quality, and competitive pricing, it’s a burgeoning contender in the industry. After spending ample time with both variants of this paddle, it’s clear that Vatic brings a novel approach to the table, appealing to both beginners and seasoned players like myself.

2 Versions

The Vatic Pro Flash paddle series comes in two variants: the 16mm and 14mm. The 16mm version, which I found perfect for aggressive, hard-hitting gameplay, delivers superior power. On the other hand, the 14mm version presents a judicious balance of power and control, appealing to those players who, like me, appreciate a more measured, finesse-driven style of play.

Specifications and Features

Both the 16mm and 14mm Vatic Pro Flash paddle variants share several common features. These include a polymer core crafted from optimized C7 polymers and a high-performance honeycomb, a T700 raw carbon fiber face, and a unique hybrid shape. The paddles measure 16.25 inches in length, including a 5.4-inch handle that is elongated for 2-hand backhands. Having a grip circumference of 4.25 inches and a weight ranging from 7.9 to 8.3 ounces depending on the version, I found them comfortable to handle during play.

Notably, the integration of foam injection thermal forming and thermoformed edges enhances both performance and durability. Each paddle is constructed from a single piece of 360-degree wrapped heat-pressed TORAY T700 carbon fiber, known for its superior strength and resistance to deformation and wear, even under the rigorous stress of play.

An aspect of the Vatic Pro Flash paddles that caught my eye was the differential carbon fiber weaves employed. The 16mm paddle utilizes a thicker style peel ply, while the 14mm paddle adopts a smaller weave pattern seen in newer thermal form paddles. These distinct weave patterns contribute to the unique playing characteristics of each paddle.

Despite their impressive performance, a relatively shorter warranty period of 90 days may raise concerns for potential buyers, especially given the longer warranty periods offered by other companies.


I found the Vatic Pro Flash 16mm version’s forte to be its power, allowing me to generate remarkable ball speed and deliver forceful shots with relative ease. However, it may demand some adjustment from players seeking superior control, as the immense power could sometimes lead to overshooting.

Conversely, the 14mm variant offers a slightly stiffer feel, affording better control than its thicker counterpart. This version facilitated precise shot execution and maintained a consistent play, offering an optimal blend of power and control that appeals to a wide spectrum of players.

Both versions of the Vatic Pro Flash paddles demonstrated excellent spin performance, thanks to the slightly textured raw carbon fiber face. While they may not attain the spin levels of higher-tier paddles, they sufficed for most of my spinning needs, providing ample spin for various shots.


In conclusion, the Vatic Pro Flash paddle series is an enticing option for players seeking high-quality paddles at an affordable price. The 16mm version is designed for those seeking maximum power, while the 14mm version provides a balanced blend of power and control. Despite the limited warranty period, the Vatic Pro Flash paddles’ overall performance, superior build quality, and competitive pricing make them an attractive choice for both newcomers and experienced players. In my experience, they indeed offer substantial value for money, backed by solid performance and durability.
