Paddletek Tempest Wave Pro V3 ICED Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle

A venerable favorite receives an impressive update as the Paddletek Tempest Wave Pro V3 paddle comes at you with a new ICED carbon fiber face promising to spin your cuts and slices like no Paddletek has ever been able to achieve. The legacy of this now legendary paddle is kept intact by retaining the accessible, traditional 16" x 8" shape and trusted Smart Response technology, in combination with the trusted 9/16" (14.3mm) thick polypropylene core. The augmented hitting surface offers the dwell time and spin you would expect from a textured carbon fiber surface, with the added benefit of impressive longevity and durability.

When you think "Tempest Wave Pro," you think control without sacrificing power, and the Wave Pro V3 continues this legacy with a 14.3mm Polymer Honeycomb core backed up by Smart Response Technology. This combination broadens the sweet spot nearly from edge to edge, while adding a dash of power via the easy-to-control ICED Carbon Fiber hitting surface. Finally, the 5.25" long handle comes in two thickness options to help you achieve your desired feel on the court for added confidence.

The Tempest Wave Pro V3 Paddle from Paddletek Pickleball continues its legacy of balancing control, spin, and just the right degree of power to help you play a complete game.

    Love it!

  • I love the paddle when it is new.

    I have had 2 or 3 others like it, and I find that after about a year, the top rim separates from the paddle, creating a dead feeling for balls hit on the top part of the paddle, which is often. So I need a new paddle every year.

    Solid paddle, but I have had previous Paddletek paddles develop dead spots in the top "corners"

  • Great paddle for medium and smaller hands. End-cap digs in to heel of larger hands; end cap is not smooth and seamless transition with grip. Otherwise, great paddle.

    Loved this paddle from the get go. Nice spin upgrade to my Wave Pro. Now need to get another one for backup for my tournament play. Also several players in my regular group hit with it and are now in the process of getting one themselves. I’m a Paddletek guy all the way!

    Love it. Replaced a 3 year old ProKennex with the new graphite Wave 3 Pro. Slight change in weight, shape and grip but it is really helping with power especially my backhand!
