Engage Pursuit Ultra MX Textured Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle
The Engage Pursuit Ultra MX Carbon Fiber Paddle is the elongated option in Engage's latest line of premium paddles, the Pursuit Ultra series. Packed full of powerful features to help you outplay your opponent, the power characteristics of this paddle center around the 1/2" thick (13mm) Control Pro Black polymer honeycomb core that is reinforced with Engage's Vortex Barrier Edge technology - foam composite injected into the outer cells to broaden the sweet spot, reduce impact vibrations, and enhance paddle balance and power. This means the weight of the paddle better situates the 7.65 oz. (Lite) or 8.1 oz. (Standard) models to deliver consistent response even on off-center strikes.
To continue its claim as the most powerful paddle in the line, the Pursuit Ultra MX Carbon Fiber paddle combines a 5.75" handle length with variable flex technology. This combination adds head speed and torque to your powerful drives, while adding reach and limiting flex when you are playing a more controlled game near the net. Not to be outdone, the 10.75" x 7.5" hitting surface is a heavily textured R210 Carbon Fiber material that is purposely engineered to rebound more than other carbon surfaces for added power, and to impart ample spin that helps you rip dastardly cut shots.
As the most powerful paddle in the Pursuit Ultra line, the Pursuit Ultra MX Carbon Fiber Paddle from Engage Pickleball does well in the hands of high-speed players who like to dictate play through power and precision.
If it's a balance of power and control you seek, while retaining the reach of an elongated paddle, see the Pursuit Ultra MX 6.0 Paddle featuring a thicker, softer core.

I was looking for a new paddle with vibration control features to prevent aggravating my elbow and shoulder. I also wanted a paddle which would offer a balance of control and power to me, an intermediate player. I always purchase from PB Central because they really do let me try any paddle for 30 days. I have not had trouble getting a refund. Thank you! I have been playing with this paddle for two weeks and have decided to keep it as it has delivered on all my expectations. I am also keeping it because this paddle can still deliver as my game improves.
