Cheetah Predion E20 Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle



The Cheetah® Predion E20 is for the player seeking maximum control, stable power, durability and spin.



Super Thick Core > Maximum Control

The 20 milimeter core of the paddle provides maximum feel and touch, allowing for effortless drop shots, soft dink battles, blocks and resets. And with its 3K carbon fiber facing, textured surface and increased ball dwell time, the Predion E20 allows you to induce ball spin, shape and place your shots with tactical precision.

The 5.25 inch long handle and 4.125 inch grip circumference of the Predion E20 allows you to roll your wrist and easily manipulate the paddle face, thereby adjusting your swing path and relative angle of the paddle face to deliver directional forces on the ball and spin.

Encased Core > Formidable Power

The paddle’s carbon fiber sidewalls are fused with it’s carbon fiber facings under heat and pressure, completely encasing the polypropylene honeycomb core and maximizing surface tension for crisp, powerful shots. The open throat also pushes the sweetspot toward the paddle tip, allowing more effective use of the fastest part of your swing path and power generation.

Perimeter Weighted > Maximum Stability

Perimeter weighting and thicker core increases the moment of inertia, which is a measure of the paddle’s resistance to having its speed of rotation about an axis altered by the application of a turning force. This allows the paddle to resist twisting and increases the sweet spot with less energy being lost on off center hits.

Well Balanced > Stable Power

At an 8.5 ounce static weight, the 16.5 inch paddle has its balance point at 57% of the paddle length, making it a well balanced paddle. However, it’s at the upper end of the well balanced paddle range.

And because the balance point of the Predion E20 is more toward the tip of the paddle, it allows for a greater plow through rate and the ability to drive the ball easier with serves, ground strokes and overhead slams.

And, the open throat and edgeless design reduces air drag, making the paddle more aerodynamic and allows for greater hand speed.

Lifetime Warranty

Cheetah® stands behind the build quality of it’s paddles.

The Predion E20 is covered under our lifetime warranty, which includes delamination (defined as when the paddle face becomes separated from the paddle core), core crush (defined as when the paddle core is compromised), and paddle breakage (defined as when the paddle breaks at the handle). Please see our Limited Lifetime Warranty policy for details.

Direct to Consumer Savings

Cheetah® Pickleball doesn’t sell to retailers and doesn’t have to set higher prices in order to guarantee a 40% profit margin for them.

We only sell direct to you.

This also gives you the advantage of dealing directly with the manufacturer, in case return issues arise.


When you buy a Cheetah® Predion 20, you’ll receive 3 FREE strips of Cheetah® Edge Protective Tape. We recommend you place one on the top of your paddle to prevent any scratches or chips that can occur when you scrape your paddle on an outdoor surface. If you only play indoors on a wood floor, there’s no need for the tape.

We’ll also include a FREE pair of Jorestech Protective Eyeware. These glasses are ANSI Z87+ Certified and provide UV (UVA and UVB radiation) protection. Plus, they have yellow tinted lenses that block blue light. And as you may know, blue light, with its shorter wavelength, scatters easier than other colors and makes focusing on objects difficult. Removing blue light improves sharpness, enhances contrast, improves depth perception and even reduces eye fatigue.

You’ll also receive 3 Cheetah® M45 pickleballs.

The Cheetah® M45 pickleball provides one-piece performance with a mid-compression feel. The M45 is a one-piece, mid-compression pickleball, designed to perform on outdoor surfaces and in outdoor conditions.

It meets all USA Pickleball requirements and is approved for tournament play.

The Cheetah® M45 uses a rotation molding process that achieves seamless and even wall thickness. The M45s play fast, fly straight and have predictable bounces off the court and hits off your paddle.

They perform as well as the other tournament-style pickleballs but have an improved feel and are more comfortable to play with.
