Engage Poach Infinity LX Blade Composite PaddleThe Poach Infinity LX Composite Paddle marks the return of a "blade" shaped paddle from Engage, the company that coined the term. It features a long face and slightly-longer-than-average handle for players who want supreme reach and coverage on the courts. The blade design is ideal for powerful serves, reliable follow-through, and adding whip-action spin to your volleys. In addition to this paddle's power, it features a six-layered vibration-dampening face with omni-directional texture to both mitigate aggravation of elbow and muscle issues, while imparting a frustrating degree of spin on your cut shots. Engage's proprietary ControlPro Black Polymer Honeycomb core lives at the center of this dangerous paddle, which softens the feel and increases confidence in your shot placement.
The Poach Infinity LX Composite Paddle measures a USA Pickleball-maximum of 17.0" in total length, by 7.0" in width, with a 5.25" handle length and medium (4.25") handle circumference. The grip is Engage's ultra-perforated cushion grip that prevents sweat from accumulating against the skin and offers a noticeable degree of tackiness. The Infinity LX is engineered with variable flex technology, which results in a forgiving touch of softer shots, while unleashing all the power you can handle on ground strokes and overheads. The LX is offered in two weight ranges: a LITE model at 7.5 - 7.8 oz., and a Standard model at 7.9 - 8.3 oz.
The Poach Infinity LX Composite Paddle by Engage Pickleball is a formidable weapon in the right hands, and is built for durability over the long haul.
Reviews of the Poach Infinity LX Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:
"It has been a while since I hit with a true blade shaped paddle – 17 inches long by 7 inches wide. This one reminded me how much fun they can be! The Engage Poach Infinity LX hits the spot for the power you expect from this shape. The sweet spot sits further away from your hand, creating more speed at the sweet spot when you make contact, and the ball flies. However, the Poach core and the 6-layer face temper that power with enough control to keep the ball in the court.
I found that I was able to dig low shots with the paddle that I might otherwise miss. Once I dialed in the power of the paddle, I found it consistent for my short game, as well. But mostly when I went to put a ball away it felt so good – and the ball stayed put away!
If you can control your strokes and find consistency in the sweet spot, the power of a blade is fun to feel. And the Poach Infinity LX delivers."

Being and older player and with short reach I have enjoyed the longer paddles. My new paddle meets my needs for more reach and at 7.9oz it is perfect for me. I also have quicker reaction to the balls hit in my direction.

I have an older version of this blade paddle that was discontinued a few years ago. I'm glad they came back the same, newer version of it. These are my most favorite paddles.
