Although the Onix Outbreak is exceptionally one of the best pickleball paddles in the market as of now. But, I have identified some of the areas in which the paddle is lacking and needs improvement.

One thing that bothered me the most while playing with the Outbreak is the shape of the handle. The paddle has an unusual structure of the handle. When I was holding the paddle in the palm of my hands. I could feel that the structure of the handle is similar to that of a rectangle. This unorthodox construction gave the handle a more “edgy” feel. Secondly, the thing that threw me off balance while experimenting with the paddle was the weight of the paddle. The Outbreak is heavier near the top of the paddle. And last but not the least, the Outbreak lacks power because it is more of a “control-oriented” pickleball paddle.

What’s My Take?

I think the Onix Outbreak is ideal for someone who looks to have additional control over their dinks and spins. Because the paddle greatly emphasizes controlled shots, rather than smashing the ball right at your opponent. Other than that, I reckon that Onix has done quite a remarkable job in manufacturing the Outbreak

Onix Outbreak Pickleball Paddle |Extensive Analysis|

If you’re wondering whether you should invest in the Onix Outbreak or not, hang on just a moment. I recommend you to go through this Onix Outbreak Pickleball Paddle Review once in order to comprehend and take in each and every feature of the pickleball paddle.

Paddle Face:

One of the most prominent elements that make the Onix Outbreak stand out is that the face of the paddle is made up of Graphite. The graphite face solidifies the paddle. Not only that but the paddle face is further reinforced with the help of Onix’s very own TeXtreme Technology (What a mouthful!). Providing the pickleball players with an opportunity to improve their control and touch game. 

So what the heck is this TeXtreme Technology and what difference does it make to your performance?

Well, TeXtreme is basically a spread tow carbon fiber woven fabric. In simpler terms, it is the practice of converting fiber into a compact, thin reinforcing materials that can be used for strengthening several different surfaces.

This modern innovation really helps in reinforcing the paddle up to a great extent, making the paddle’s face rigid and durable without adding any additional or extra weight to it. HOW AMAZING IS THAT?

Edge Guard:

The Onix Outbreak comes in a low-profile vinyl edge guard that assists in protecting from any external damage to the paddle. While at the same time, enhancing other factors of the paddle such as maneuverability and wielding ability. In addition to that, it can be said that the life span of the paddle is increased by incorporating the edge guard. Which results in a more durable and firm pickleball paddle.

Paddle Core:

Onix has proved why the company is on the top of its game by featuring Onix Outbreak with an incredible Polypropylene Honeycomb Core. This introduction of the modern innovation to the paddle plays a significant role in the better performance of the paddle. The thickness of the paddle is also a very important factor to consider. As it helps in refining and revamping the control, power, and touch on the ball. Adding TeXtreme Technology to the mix and you will get a beast of a paddle to pull off amazing shots. Including dinks as well as complete control to curve the ball and make it swing.

Paddle core

One interesting thing that surprised me the most while I was experimenting with the paddle is the thicker core. This core packs a serious punch. Because the paddle is really compatible with fast-paced as well as slow shots. It offers just the right control that you desire in a pickleball paddle.

Paddle Dimensions:

Just like most of the other pickleball paddles, the Onix Outbreak comes in a standard length of 15 ½  inches. Whereas, the height of the paddle measures up to 1 ⅜ inch. However, one thing to look out for is the broad construction of the paddle which is 8 ⅛ inches wide. Offering a greater width than most of the paddles where the width is only 8 inches. Which makes the Outbreak an ideal pick. Along with that, the spacious design of the paddle gives an oversized area of the sweet spot. Meaning it becomes pretty uncomplicated to smash the ball winging into the opposition’s side of the net. Plus, the wider sweet spot also comes in quite handy in further improving the control on the ball to place your next game-winning shot.


Another factor that makes the Outbreak unique is that it is a suitable pickleball paddle for all types of players. Due to its medium weight which ranges from 7.8 ounces to 8.2 ounces. The medium weight of the paddle makes it quite easy for pickleball players to roam freely on the court. And at the same time swing the paddle with much comfort and ease. Furthermore, the Outbreak is also available in many different variations in terms of weight. So one can go for the paddle that is well-suited and easy to carry around for them.

Grip & Handling:

If you are a player who likes to hold the paddle in both of your hands then the Onix Outbreak is just made for you. The paddle features a stretched-out and extended handle that measures 5 inches which is identical to that of the Onix Z5. Another side to consider is that the long handle also complements players that play tennis as well because the long handle of the paddle imitates the handle design of a tennis racquet.

The Onix Outbreak features its proprietary Perforated Cushioned Grip on its wooden handle that measures 4 ⅜ inches in terms of grip circumference which helps in holding the paddle more comfortably and simultaneously absorbs any moisture and sweat from the palm of your hands so that the paddle may not slip from the hands during intense, action-packed pickleball matches.
