The Poach Advantage is the first paddle to have a surface skin (or face) made up of an astounding 6 layers. While most paddles only use one or two layers, this proprietary "Variable Release" surface created by Engage creates incredible ball responsiveness and power while maintaining a very soft feel in touch shots. The texture of this paddle has been refined to provide exceptional spin while still meeting USAPA guidelines. Leveraging a unique unidirectional texture, the paddle gives players that use a top spin or backspin exceptional ability to "work" a ball.
Engage's Poach Advantage also brings innovation to the core under the surface layer. While the face of the paddle interacts with the ball and enables its to "work" a ball by helping add or reduce spin, the way the face interacts with the core determines if a paddle is a "power paddle" returning energy quickly to a ball or a "control paddle" absorbing energy and giving a softer touch. Engage's approach was to create a core that would behave differently under different swing speeds - their lead engineer calls it "Variable Release Technology". Our experience when testing it with our in-house pro validated this behavior giving power when you needed it, and soft touch when you worked on blocks and dinks. Unlike other cores that are "white" from the polypropylene, the chemistry used in this "poly core" renders the core black. Engage calls this the "Control Pro Black" core. The result is that they feel that the paddle is able to give a player the ability to almost "hold" (their words, not ours) pickleballs in place during slower shots for optimal placement.
The paddle is so exciting that almost all of the top Team Engage Pros have switched over to this new paddle. Players the likes of USAPA Nationals Gold Medalists Ben Johns and Corrine Carr have made the switch to the Poach Advantage.
The Poach Advantage comes in two weights, choose from "Lite" (7.5-7.8 oz.) or "Standard" (7.9-8.3 oz.) so you can choose to enjoy a balance between speed and power, or something with a touch more strength in its swing. It has a medium grip with a 5” handle length. The face width is 8” to provide a generous surface area and sweet spot. The design features a background with an overlaid target pattern. The paddle name is displayed on a strip of color near the lower third of the face.
The Poach Advantage is a highly innovative paddle that will allow players to improve their play through smooth handling and its reactive surface.
The 'Precision' paddle is a true bargain. Made with the same premium trim and grips found on $150 paddles. Most other paddles in the same price range have plastic trims with thin over-grip type grips. Not the 'Precision'. The NEW textured skin Engage designed for this paddle will help control the ball and place it where you want. The paddle has power too, not too much though, but enough to help you put the ball by your opponent.

The Trident debuts Engage's new 5-layer GripTEK skin. Optimized for ultimate feel, control, ball placement and spin. An extremely solid feeling paddle with a larger 'sweet spot' than other paddles.
The NEW GripTEK skin is an innovation created and designed by Engage. The skin hits the USAPA limits on roughness and won't wear away over time. It's evenly distributed across the entire paddle face for an even and balanced reaction to your point of contact with the ball.
The 5-layer skin works together with the 'Control Pro 3' core, designed so the 'skin' and 'core' act as one for the control you need to place the ball by your opponent. The paddle has plenty of power to put the ball away too when needed, but control, feel and spin are the main focus of the paddle with being extremely balanced for quick reaction and maneuverability.
The engineering of the Trident maximizes the amount of time the ball stays on the paddle (a concept originally developed by Engage), enabling the soft feel to command the soft (net) game.
The 'Trident' is the only paddle with GripTek™ Technology.
Innovation. Creativity. Ingenuity. Exclusively by EngagePickleball.

The Elite Pro Composite Paddle has an impressive legacy that few other paddles can match. During the 2017 US Open, nine pro players used the Elite Pro for the first time during their matches. And they all won! There aren't many better endorsements than real success on the courts, though of course the players using it account for something. This paddle was created with many 5.0 players' input and that reflects in the quality of its craftsmanship and play.
The Elite Pro Composite Paddle is, somewhat ironically, ideal for graphite lovers. Engage has taken to calling the chemically-bonded skin on the face "liquid graphite" in honor of its tough composition and super reactive feel. The ControlPro core balances this out by using polymer that will give you a quiet, consistent and gentle touch that can still put away winners.This paddle has a medium grip with a Standard Weight Range: 7.9-8.3 oz and now available in LITE Weight Range: 7.5-7.8oz. LITE models have a slightly different appearance, with a solid color on the corner of the paddle face.
The Elite Pro may not make you into a perfect player, but its attention to detail and quality design will put you on the fast track to pickleball domination.
