Paddles with thicker cores have more control and a softer feel at the point of contact. But as cores get thicker, the power and size of the sweet spot diminishes. Engage, who is known for their paddle engineering and innovation, created 'Core & Skin Dimensioning' to fix that issue. Producing the only 'Thick Core' paddle 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 loose control and ability to recover for the next shot.
The Encore 6.0 Paddle was made for players who want high levels of control and smooth handling. With a low center of gravity and broad face, this paddle feels solid in the hand and maneuvers with ease. The thick polymer ControlPro core creates a large sweet spot with a great feel and generates additional power. A FiberTek skin on the face helps to grip pickleballs and provides better spin.
The Encore 6.0 Paddle ranges from 7.5-7.8oz (lightweight) and 7.9-8.3oz (mid-weight) in weight so that you get a nice balance of speed and strength. The handle is 5" long and uses a high tack, cushioned grip which comes in a small or standard circumference. A target-shaped design is placed high and near the center of the paddle face while a diagonal slice of color is placed in the lower corner.
The Encore 6.0 Paddle is ideal for methodical players who want full control over every shot with dependable touch.
