Encore Pro Composite Pickleball Paddle

The Encore Pro Composite Pickleball Paddle was developed with input from nationally ranked players and has been used by big names like Brian Staub, Marcin Rozpedski and Phil Bagley. It features several advanced qualities, such as an extra-large sweet spot and enhanced “touch” when balls hit the paddle’s face. It comes with the Encore’s famous specialized skin that pushes the limits of allowed surface roughness, making it a snap to put spin on balls. The composite and polymer material pairing makes this a fantastic paddle for control, but allows for plenty of strength behind your hits as well.

The Encore Pro Composite Pickleball Paddle shares the same dimensions as the original Encore Paddle except for the weight. The lite weight option sits between 7.5 to 7.8 ounces, while the standard weight option is 7.9 to 8.3 ounces. It has a width of 8” and an overall length of 15-1/4”. The handle measures 4-3/4” in length, with a medium grip to fit most hands.

The Encore Pro Composite Pickleball Paddle is an ideal choice for players wanting to improve their game and play with gear used by the pros.

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

Transcript of Video #1 - Louis Trombley

Okay, so we’re here at the US OPEN. Can you tell us your name? I’m Louis Trombley from Canada, from Kitchener Ontario. And Louie, what paddle do you play with? I play with the Encore Pro. Why, why that paddle? I like it. It’s got a good feel to it. It’s got a lot of pop to it, a lot of power. It’s got good control for dinking, and I generally love the design and I like the little jewel. Thank you so much!

  • Great all around paddle

    Love this paddle. It was my first "better" paddle and I still use it. I tried to replace it but the replacement, which costs about $80 more, doesn't seem any better. Great paddle all over the court -- I love the spin, power on drives, and control.


  • Bday present for my 20 year old so

    I wanted to buy a new paddle for my son as a surprise. I know paddles are personal but figured he could exchange it if necessary. He loves it. I’ve used it and like it better than mine. It absorbs the power…doesn’t go through one’s arm. He loves to slice and this paddle helps him with that. It’s light but not too light. Highly recommend especially at the price.
