Pursuit EX 6.0 Pickleball Paddle

The Pursuit EX 6.0 Paddle from Engage Pickleball offers a pro-level combination of control and responsiveness. Its impressive performance stands the test of time thanks to a textured, omni-directional surface which is attributed to the graphite itself rather than a textured overlay material. This prevents the texture from wearing down and creates a consistent feel across the entire face. You will find it is easier to add spin to your cut shots, in addition to the surface "gripping" pickleballs for longer periods so you can carefully place your shots.

The Pursuit EX 6.0 Pickleball Paddle features a core that is 0.6" thick, so it provides a higher degree of control and shock dampening than standard half-inch-thick paddles. The Pursuit EX 6.0 delivers a soft touch, but is still highly durable due to the Control Pro Black proprietary core material. The face is broad, at 8" across, and its handle is 5" long with a medium-to-large 4-3/8" circumference. The paddle comes in three weight ranges: lite at 7.5 - 7.9 oz, and standard weight at 8.0 - 8.4 oz. The grip is perforated and features a tacky feel so that you will feel confident in your grasp even during heated games.

The Pursuit EX 6.0 Pickleball Paddle will keep you in top form throughout intense games, and has a precision-based, reliable design.

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

  • Face deteriorates

    I bought the EX Pursuit for my wife (3 rating player), she plays 3-4 times a week. In a month and a half the face is showing bold spots (smooth instead of the original texture). I’ve reached out to PC for warranty.

    I am a 78 year old probably 3.0 rec player playing 4-5 times a week. The things I like about the Engage Pursuit Ex 6.0 are 1) It has a fairly large sweet spot which is good for an intermediate rec player. The longer version allows for a few more gets but the larger sweet spot and better control I think is better for for us rec players 2) It has more grit for more spin Probably not the most spin available but decent spin. 3) The thicker version of the paddle also gives better control although a little less power. Things I like less 1) handle is a little thicker than most but still OK 2) It is a little head heavy. I tried out both the mid weight and lightweight paddles. I normally get midweight paddles but like the lightweight version of the Engage Pursuit Ex 6.0 because of the weight balance. I can add lead tape later if I want. I think this is an excellent pallet for an intermediate rec player at a reasonable price especially when it is on sale like presently.

  • Engage Pursuit Ex 6.0

    I am a 78 year old rec player 4-5 times a week. I have not been rated but most likely am a decent 3.0 player. I have tried number of other paddles but like this one better than the others I have tried. The Engage Pursuit Ex 6.0 had a large sweet spot with is great for us older mid level players. That gives it excellent control for the touch shots. It has enough power for put away shots. The only drawbacks I have found are 1) it is head heavy. That did not bother me on serves and drives but seemed to make it a little less maneuverable. I am currently using the mid weight paddle but am going to try the light weight, and 2) the standard grip is 4 3/8 vs most other paddles at 4 1/4. I don't have large hands and it did not bother me but I have seen some other reviews where it did. There is a newer version of this paddle called the Ultra Engage Pursuit. I have not played it but the reviews of it say the two main updates are the weight has moved more to the handle so it i less head heavy and supposed to have more spin. However the price of the Engage Pursuit has been discounted quite a bit and the Ultra price has gone up so the difference in pricing is not quite $100. So I think the Engage Pursuit Ex 6.0 is a great paddle at a reasonable price for us mid level players.

    Great "all court" paddle. I own two of this model. Truly has power and control. Spin capability is very good. Resets are easy and dropping hard shots at the net come easy. A bit softer than carbon fiber, which is a plus for me.

    This is my best paddle that I have owned. It is light weight, the grip just fit my hand. I play better too. Now that’s a plus. Glad this paddle was chosen. Excited about taking it to the court today and tomorrow.

  • Great service! Poor paddle

    Jun 14, 2023

    Pickleball Central is great. I ordered this paddle late Friday of the Memorial Day week and had the paddle on Tuesday. It weighed what I had requested as well. However, the paddle core started showing through the skin after only two sessions of play. Engage did honor their warranty. I have another Engage with a surface that has worn well, however.

  • Awesome Paddle and Pickleball Central company

    Apr 23, 2023

    Wow! I know I am a great customer but 2 day delivery is above and beyond service, exceeding my expectations. I ordered this Engage Pursuit EX 6.0 with a small grip and light weight. The weight is 7.83oz and the grip is still about 4 3/8 inches in diameter. Glad I choose the small grip because it feels big. The paddle does give me better control compared to my solid paddles smooth surface that I Regularly use. It also has a nice rough graphite surface that I now can use with my slice and corkscrew serve. This also provides some ball grip for forehand and backhand rolls. I like the pop sound it makes when I drive the ball yet I still can reset into the NVZ easily. This was a good choice and nice addition to my paddle collection!

  • What is review subject; paddle, male, service?

    Jan 3, 2023

    Stop looking, BUY. It's not easy saying I'll spend 2-3 times what I have spent on a paddle, but I did (Merry Christmas). The surface is nor glued on and my others are and wearing. The weight and balance are good for me and my wife. Do you know what it feels like to play with a balanced paddle? It feels like an extension of your hand. Look for sales and then smile at your game.

  • This is a paddle that has a good amount of control. I play with a lot of slammers and I am able to control my returnf without as much effort with my other paddle. The weight is a perfect weight for me and I am happy with it's performance

    Pickleball Central always makes a great effort to provide me with the paddle weight that I reauest. Their customer service is above and beyond and I appreicate that they are willing to accommodate the weight request. I may have to wait a day or two longer but always get the weight I want.
