Encore 6.0 Pickleball Paddle

The Encore 6.0 Paddle was made for players who want high levels of control and smooth handling. With a low center of gravity and broad face, this paddle feels solid in the hand and maneuvers with ease. The thick polymer ControlPro core creates a large sweet spot with a great feel and generates additional power. A FiberTek skin on the face helps to grip pickleballs and provides better spin.

The Encore 6.0 Paddle ranges from 7.5 - 8.4 oz in weight so that you get a nice balance of speed and strength. The handle is 5" long and uses a high tack, cushioned grip. A target-shaped design is placed high and near the center of the paddle face while a diagonal slice of color is placed in the lower corner.

The Encore 6.0 Paddle is ideal for methodical players who want full control over every shot with dependable touch.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

    I'm still a beginner to intermediate player and needed a better paddle. This paddle is more solid, doesn't vibrate when hitting the ball. I'm noticing more control and plenty of power. I like the bigger grip for my arthritic hands. Had compliments on my level of play today, today was the first time I used my new paddle.

    Talked to a representative at Pickleball Central and told her what I was after which was a paddle that had more grit for top spin and control. I followed her recommendation and bought the Encore 6.0. I love it. Gives me exactly what I was after. Funny story (at least for me). I let my son and daughter and their spouses use the paddle for a day. They agreed that it was sooooo much better than anything they were using up to that point. My daughter and son and law said they were going to get one another the paddle as a July Christmas present.

    My other engage paddle. This is a backup paddle to my encore EX 6.0. I have had to send my old engage in for warranty work, the warranty work was done but I’m experiencing dead spots now wit the paddle. Love Engage products and doing business with pickle ball central, great outfit.

    This was more like a ping pong paddle.

    I've tried (and bought) a number of paddles and this is the second 6.0 paddle I've purchased. When I ordered I wanted a specific weight and received the 7.7oz model as requested. Great paddle and great service. Timely arrival as promised. I will continue to buy from Pickleball Central ~ they're the best!

    First the paddle was very good and if i did not find my current paddle which is an engage pro model i would have kept the 6.0 version. The difference was so insignificant that keeping it did not make sense. Working with Pickelball Central was excellent and will buy from them again, which is where i got the pro model.
