I purchased the Tempest Wave Graphite paddle for the weight and control. The weight is 7.5 oz which is light enough for long tournament play, yet heavy enough for that power shot when needed. The surface of the paddle is awesome, proving great control and spin on net volleys and dinking.
I would highly recommend this paddle for intermediate to advanced players that want to improve their game.
I tried out a variety of paddles and chose this paddle. It allows me to put plenty of spin on the ball. The weight distribution is good. It gives me power on the serve but it is light enough at the net for the dinks and quick volleys at the net. The grip is perfect. I tried other paddles with a smaller grip but they just didn't feel right.
Great paddle - lots of control - most popular paddle at our club. Even our pro has one. Worth the $.
I am new to Pickleball and only played with one or two other paddles before buying this one, but after a week or so of playing with the tempest I really like it. I selected it because of the weight (@7.6 ounces), the slightly longer handle, the size, and what it's made of.
Love low impact and soft feel honeycomb contact. Good weight distribution and comfy grip.
