As a fairly new pickleball player but long-time tennis player, I was looking for a paddle that could match my playstyle in tennis: ball placement and control. After trying a few paddles from friends (CRBN 1 , Joola Hyperion) I came to the conclusion that pickleball paddles should not cost more than $100... let alone $200.
First of all… the packaging. Wow. It made me way more excited to open the box. In the past I’ve ordered some Joola paddles, and they never come in such nice packaging. You’d think spending over $200 on a paddle would get you kind of protective packaging but it had a flimsy little paper covering the face and that was it. So, the Nicol paddle made a great first impression. I also really liked the handle length when I first picked it up!

Great balance of power and control: The Nicol Pickleball Paddle has a perfect balance of power and control. It is lightweight and easy to swing, but it still provides enough power to hit the ball hard and deep. The paddle also has a large sweet spot, which gives me more confidence in my shots. As someone who likes to spin, the woven grit on the paddle is excellent to help to provide spin.
