The NEW Engage Encore EX 6.0. The Encore EX 6.0 is part of Engage's new 'Thick Core' paddle lineup. The only 'Thick Core' paddles in the market with power and a large sweet spot.
The Encore 6.0 Line of Paddles are the choice of Nationals, US Open and Tournament of Champion Pro Level Medalist Jennifer Lucore, Brian Staub and Gigi LeMaster
Paddles with thicker cores have more control and a softer feel at the point of contact. But generally, as cores become thicker, the power and size of the sweet spot diminish. Engage, known for their paddle engineering and innovation, created 'Core & Skin Dimensioning' to fix that issue. Producing the only 'Thick Core' paddles with a large sweet spot and the right amount of power to put the ball away (while maintaining full control, balance and positioning). If you have to over-swing to put the ball away, you lose control and the ability to recover for the next shot.
The Engage Encore EX 6.0 features a composite paddle face and a thick polymer core. The Encore EX 6.0 is the perfect option for somebody looking to get more extremely balanced play, with power, control, and additional reach. The 16" length X 8" width gives it a slightly longer reach compared to the Encore 6.0, without sacrificing much of the sweet spot size.
This version of the Encore EX 6.0 is the middleweight model with a weight range of 7.9-8.3oz, and it works well for players looking to get a little more power with their already quick paddle speed.
