The NEW Poach Advantage. The most technologically advanced paddle in the market. The first true 'next generation' paddle taking paddle design and development to new levels.
Most 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. This concept and design not only creates the softest feeling paddle in the market, but holds the ball even longer than past generation skins.
New texture! 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.
Engage took paddle development even further by creating a new core never used before in pickleball. Engage wanted a core that was specifically designed to act as one with the new skin technology. One that would behave differently at varying contact speeds. Producing a paddle that would hold the ball longer than past generation paddles when swinging slow (enabling the most control possible), but would also maximise deflection/power so you could put the ball by your opponents at will when swinging fast. We call it Variable Release Technology.
Never before has so much research and development gone into paddle development. The NEW Poach Advantage is the most advanced paddle in the market designed to take the game and you to the next level.
