Product description

Most of the paddles today, only have 1-2 layer skins. Using the latest in technology advancements Engage developed a proprietary skin made of 6-layers that is the same thickness as the existing 1-2 layer skins. After vigorous testing, Engage found the optimal angle/pattern sequence for the 6 layers to produce the desired playability and maximum ball responsiveness. A proprietary design and concept developed by Engage. This concept and design not only creates the softest feeling paddle in the market, but holds the ball even longer than past generation skins. The texture is also new. Engage developed a new texture concept that helps induce proper ball rotation making it easier to place the ball where you want. The texture runs top to bottom in a vertical alignment and hits the USAPA limits in roughness.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broke after a month
By Pickleball Addict on April 29, 2019
First off, I LOVE this paddle. I switched from my Selkirk S2 and it has the perfect amount of soft touch and has transformed my soft game. BUT, and this is a HUGE but, I've only had it for 1 month and 8 days and the trim is already coming off. I play quite a bit but not enough to have the rim falling off after a month. Unfortunately, I'm over the 30 day return time and I'm stuck with a $150 broken paddle. I guess back to my Selkirk. 😢😢

5.0 out of 5 stars Defect at $150? -Replaced
By Summer on June 17, 2018
Arrived with a large bubble. Box arrived in normal condition, although paddle was loose in oversized box, no packing materials. At this price point, hoping this isn't indicative of manufacturing standards. I hope the second paddle I just ordered is going to last me a long time.

Side note: The "standard" model is a bit heavy, but well balanced. I opted for the lite version this attempt.

Will update the review in 4-6 weeks of use.

*Update*
The light version is a much better weight for me. Kinda glad the first one was defective.

Has the biggest sweet spot coverage of any paddle I've tried, including the top end prolites. Has way more pop at the net for blocks, and yet not too much for dinks. Plenty of spin, but not as much as some. Volleys and slams feel awesome and it will just surprise you how much faster the ball travels with controlled strokes.

Only downside is that I found out the day after ordering that my friend is an Engage rep and I could've gotten a discount. I would wait until these paddles drop another $15-20. This would be the best paddle at that price range, hands down.
