GAMMA 405 Graphite PaddleThe GAMMA 405 Graphite Pickleball Paddle is an adaptable all-court paddle that truly shines up at the net. Its light-midweight and soft touch imparted from GAMMA's Sensa Polycore and supple graphite face result in a highly controllable tool. However, when called upon to delivery some power, the half-inch-thick core and long handle provide whip-action pop allowing you to put ground strokes past your opponents with surprising ease. Potent overheads, too? Check.
The GAMMA 405 weighs in at 7.4 – 7.8 oz., is 7-3/8" wide, and measures 16-3/8" in overall length. This length offers the same benefits as an "elongated" paddle shape, while reserving 5-1/4" of that length for the handle so two-handed backhands, blocks, and resets are an ever-present option. The 405's handle circumference is a small'ish 4-1/8" and arrives wrapped in GAMMA's super popular honeycomb grip.
The 405 Graphite Paddle from GAMMA Pickleball will help you maintain speed and power all throughout a match, whether you're rushing toward the kitchen or ready to pull the trigger and put points away.
Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".
Reviews of the 405 Graphite Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:
"Pardon the expression, but the 405 sits in a 'sweet spot' in the GAMMA paddle lineup. It leverages the long'ish handle and proportions of some of GAMMA's other new models like the 206, the 505, and the Havoc (for power), as well as the supple graphite face of the Shard and Compass (for control). Then GAMMA combines these elements with their trusty Sensa polymer core material used on the Needle, RZR, and other models which, at a half-inch thick, tips the scales toward the power end of the spectrum just enough to call this a graphite-faced power paddle. Normally this would be thought of as a contradiction in terms, but GAMMA flouts conventional wisdom with the 405. And then they went ahead and priced this impressive package at a downright rational MSRP of $139.99 so it sits at the unique intersection of a powerful shape and core, with a controllable face material, and superb value. This one's going to earn itself some fans, for sure."

I researched a paddle that was light weight with a small handle. This is a perfect choice. I am a decent player and appreciate the control I have using this paddle for slicing dinks and deep shots. Highly recommend. My order arrived quickly.
