One of our Pro-Lite customers sent us his review on the Rocket XL after he used it recently. "I wanted to let you know that I tried the Rocket XL today. It really is what I have been looking for!

  • "The paddle is very responsive – but controllable.
  • "It is heavy enough to absorb the shock of hard hits at the net and still be maneuverable.
  • "It’s well balanced and doesn’t seem to have any dead spots even near the edges.
  • "I like the thinner edge guard. I think there will be fewer miss hits at the edge of the paddle.
  • "I love the sound the paddle makes on impact. I should have said lack of sound because it is quiet compared to other paddles I have or have use."

Another Pro-Lite Sports Dealer offered her review on the Rocket XL:

“I usually play with the Pro-Lite Impact or my Pro-Lite Blaster 2 Alloy. The Rocket XL is a great combination of both those paddles. It has such noticeable power and control! I have not put the thing down! Everyone wants to try it out, but I need it for my game! When I return a serve, the ball seriously blasts off my paddle! This might just give me that extra confidence to enter more tournaments!”
