Engage Encore EX Composite Pickleball Paddle

The Encore EX Composite Paddle from Engage Pickleball is a potent choice that is made to enhance your precision and confidence. This design features a 1/2" core thickness, compared to the Encore EX 6.0 version, providing additional feedback and power in your strikes so you can quickly seize control of matches. It uses a proprietary FiberTek surface treatment that is chemically bonded to the fiberglass face of the paddle, rather than overlaid onto the face, creating a long-lasting texture so players enjoy consistent spin.

The Encore EX Composite Fiberglass Paddle is offered in two weight ranges, either 7.5 - 7.8 (LITE) or 7.9 - 8.3 oz. (Standard) so you can choose the ideal fit for your play style. The handle is 5" long with a medium 4-1/4" grip circumference. The core uses Control Pro technology that is designed to work in tandem with the face to enlarge the size of the sweet spot and offer a responsive feel. With an overall length of 16" this paddle provides a good amount of reach for court coverage, but still has a sizable 8" width for solid defensive capabilities.

The Encore EX Pickleball Paddle from Engage will allow you to make more intuitive decisions during play, with the power and versatility to back them up.

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

    I thought I had ordered the EX 6.0 from the website. Was disappointed when it arrived. I tried it a few times but didn’t have enough power for me. I have returned it and am waiting for my refund. ***PBC Response*** Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! We know that not every paddle will be right for every player which is why we offer our 30-day no questions asked test drive allowing you to send the paddle back within 30 days of arrival for any reason at all.

  • Encore EX - not for me

    I returned it as unsuited to my play. Too heavy, lots of pop but no finese. I ordered the EX 6.0 as a replacement and I am very happy with that. ***PBC Response*** Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! Not every paddle is for every player, so we are thrilled you utilized our 30-day test drive for a no questions asked return and found the right paddle for you! - Pickleball Central Team
