GAMMA 505 Graphite Paddle

The 505 Graphite Paddle is an elongated offering with a generous handle length to provide enhanced follow-through and power. It combines GAMMA’s textured graphite face, with their NeuCore polymer honeycomb which results in a 5/8" thick core that creates a muted, responsive feel that is aptly described as "controllable power."

The 505 Graphite Paddle's weight range is from 7.5 – 7.7 oz., keeping it at a manageable weight despite its extended shape. It has a textured graphite surface which lends itself to spin and ball control, while the 5-1/4" long handle allows for two-handed backhands. The 505 arrives wrapped in GAMMA's famed "honeycomb" cushioned and perforated grip for a moisture-resistant, tacky feel around a thin 4-1/8" handle circumference.

The 505 Graphite Pickleball Paddle by GAMMA is a responsive option that makes it easier to work on finesse shots while maintaining fantastic control.

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

Reviews of the 505 Graphite Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The new GAMMA 505 was introduced at the 2021 Margaritaville USA Pickleball Nationals Championships Presented by Pickleball Central. I got to play the paddle one night for rec play and I really like how this paddle performs. It uses the same core (GAMMA's NeuCore) and face material (graphite) as the GAMMA Shard model, but with a different shape. The handle is longer, and the paddle is slightly longer and narrower overall. The sweet spot moved a little higher on the paddle face and the extra length makes it slightly more powerful.

The feel of the paddle is soft (less feedback) and makes for a very consistent short game. With the shape, I could also feel a little more pop on the drives and overheads. This makes for a good all court paddle. Any player who is a fan of the Shard,
Compass, or Hellbender models from GAMMA should check this bad boy out. It borrows a little bit from the best aspects of all those paddles, and puts them together in a very attractive package.

The shape was inspired by GAMMA Pro Players, Lindsey and Riley Newman. Their paddles (Lindsey's Havoc model, and Riley's 206 model are both forthcoming) feature a fiberglass face, so will surely arrive with a bit more pop."
