Tempest Wave II Graphite Paddle

Enhanced upgrade to the beloved Tempest Wave paddle featuring new Torsion Vibration Control and Grip Vibration Dampening Systems.

The Tempest Wave II Graphite Pickleball Paddle will complement your ability to read the game and keep you in control of the ball. It has a gentle, muted feel on impact thanks to the polymer core which reduces vibrations. This allows players to respond on their terms rather than forcing an unbalanced volley. The paddle's textured surface helps "grab" pickleballs to improve placement and add spin.

The Tempest Wave II Graphite Paddle has a weight range of 7.4 - 7.8 oz which makes it a great choice for speedy exchanges at the net without being so light as to lose power. The grip is 5-1/4" in length which is more generous than the average paddle, providing more room for those with larger hands or space for two-handed backhands. The grip circumference is a medium size.

The Tempest Wave II Graphite Paddle has a soft touch with the ability to respond quickly and make precise shots. Available in the following colors: blue, green, purple, red & yellow

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

    Like the feel, but at age 79 it hasn't done much for my game, nor did I expect it to.

    Very happy with my new paddle. Lightweight, comfortable grip, more control at the net. Arrived within 4 days of placing order.

    I like the paddle. Much more power. Too bad it took 10 days to arrive. Very disappointing.

    Suprised on how it was delivered. Just in an envelope no bubble wrapping.

    I like this paddle but it wasn’t made well. Frame came off in a couple of areas around paddle. I glued it back but then the n the frame cracked along the edge. I cut the loose piece ( was like a splinter) but still use the paddle. This is my only reason for not purchasing another.

    Since late 2019, I have purchased eleven Tempest Wave II paddles: for myself, friends, relatives, and to use as demos in the classes I teach. You cannot beat the quality at this price. I am getting ready to purchase additional Tempest Wave II paddles. No reason to pay more for a paddle!
