Technology and innovation needs to advance in our support. The criteria limiting surface roughness and friction already exist. As long as manufacturers abide by the criteria then the paddle is acceptable. This proposal is ambiguous in wanting to prohibit paddles that are close to these limits. How close? 5%? 10%? 20%? A better proposal would be to raise the criteria limits, but I'm sure players wouldn't want that.

There are equipment standards and paddles are sent for testing/approval before they begin manufacturing them. USA Pickleball defines the standards for all pickleball equipment -- this does not belong in the rulebook.
