Test Reviews of the Gamma Compass Pickleball Paddle:

"Our club, Tomahawk Area Pickleball, tested the Gamma Compass with a cross section of players: men and women with skill levels ranging from 2.5 to 4.0. Across the board, players found the Compass provided a solid punch. One 3.5 player noted he liked 'the pop off the face of the paddle.' Another was overjoyed by the large sweet spot: 'For the first time, I felt like I knew where the ball was going when I hit it.' The touch of the paddle was praised by one of our 4.0 players. She found it made her third-shot drops more consistent and was impressed by the control it offered for shot placement. The elongated face also made reaching shots easier. Our aggressive players loved the paddle's feel, noting it felt soft even when hitting hard. The short handle and smaller grip make it perfect for players with small to normal-sized hands. The square grip is great for transitions and positioning during awkward shots. Until it was mentioned after play, most players never even noticed the Compass' extra thickness. Everyone enjoyed the Compass' balance, many of whom had never used an elongated paddle before. That's a true compliment to the designers at Gamma. Overall we found the Gamma Compass a great paddle, especially for those looking to add that extra bit of touch to their net game while still craving power. The most frequent compliment I heard was the exceptional feel when striking the ball. This paddle may be what the advanced player needs for a shot-making edge, but the average player will find great comfort in the oversized sweet spot. If you ever have an opportunity to try the Gamma Compass, you won’t be disappointed."

    I love this paddle....this is my second time to purchase it after 4 years of tri weekly play. I use cleaning wipes on it after play during the Covid scares. That sorta affected the surface appearance, but not the over all performance.

    This is my 3rd gamma compass paddle and I love it! It really helps against lobbers. My only complaint is outer edge has cracked on previous two paddles.

    For me the paddle is ideal. Good grip, ball rebounds off the paddle just right for me, the extended length helps me reach most balls. Have tried about a half dozen paddles and the Compass fits my playing style the best.

    This is the best paddle I have purchased! It is lightweight and gives me great control when hitting the ball. I highly recommend this paddle.

    I like the paddle, which is not surprising as I've come from having the Needle for 2 years. It's good for control, and hits with pop, if you strike the ball in the sweet spot . But the spot is pretty small.

  • Gamma Compass is the best

    Dec 22, 2022

    This paddle is one of the best on the market, I recommend it to lots of our players & sometimes when we play there will be 4 Compass paddles being used. It is by far the most popular paddle at our Club in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand & it is popular because it is a good all round paddle. Thanks Gamma for making such a great paddle.

    I love this paddle. It's exactly the right weight and length. As someone with small hands I appreciate the smaller grip size

  • More Surface/More Power

    I bought this paddle for my husband, who has had surgery on both of his knees and is a little stiff even years later. He needs a little help with reach. He is enjoying the game even more now that he has the longer paddle. It has definitely improved his game.

    I have been playing for about a year now and been through a few paddles and seemed to land on a blade type. The shape has lent itself to enhancing my game with less balls off the neck of the paddle. Paddles do not make your game, but they sure can help.

    I can say that the my game has transformed. The switch from regular to elongated paddle was not noticeable. I am an ex racquetball player, so this paddle is helpful for me.
