There is no light without darkness. No sweet without sour. And now, there is no Blue Raspberry without its deadly counterpart: the Dark Berry. While everyone sings summery songs and downs sweet snow cones, the Dark Berry lurks in the shadows. Sometimes it feels good to be the villain.

Note: The 16mm variant of this paddle cannot be used in USAP-sanctioned tournaments. It is an experimental model optimized for maximum control.
For funky top-spin serves and nasty slice returns.
The Erne Paddle’s ExtremeGrit fiberglass measures at 32.2 Rt, one of the highest friction ratings ever recorded by USA Pickleball.
Bury high balls and pound your drives.
The 16.5" length, 13mm thickness, and honeycomb polypropylene core are all optimized for superior power.
Hit more ernes, poach more balls, and get more power.
At 16.5,” the Erne Paddle is elongated so you can fly around the court and attack any ball. The wildest pickleball players always have a few tricks up their sleeves. Greater reach makes you more unpredictable and more dangerous.
NEW SMOOTH GRIP
For better paddle control, and improved placement.
You asked for it, so we upgraded it. Our new grip tech is smooth and tacky to prevent slipping in hand. The grip’s 4.25” circumference feels snug in hand and the 5.25” extended handle allows for extra reach (and room for a two-handed backhand).
THE SWEET SPOT
The area surrounding the Erne logo is a cushion-like sweet spot, perfect for slowing down attacks and dropping a buttery third shot into the kitchen.
