Engage Encore EX 6.0 BLEMISHED Middleweight Composite Pickleball Paddle

This model is a blemished version of the Encore EX 6.0. These pickleball paddles contain minor cosmetic blemishes, but they have been inspected and tested to ensure they are in good playing condition. The EX series of paddles feature an industry-standard shape for a great balance between reach, power, and control.

Paddle Benefits

The Engage Encore EX 6.0 Blemished features a composite paddle face and a thick polymer core. The Engage Encore EX 6.0 is one of 3 pickleball paddles available in the Engage Encore 6.0 line of paddles, and 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.

Fantastic paddle at a good price Steve H Intermediate

Pros: I had been playing with a borrowed Engage Elite Pro and bought this one to have as my own. I've been super happy with it. It came quickly, I suppose there's a slight blemish to the screenprinting but it doesn't hurt playability at all and it really isn't noticeable. The touch of the paddle is fantastic, the paddle surface allows me to get the spin I want and the sweet spot seems good to me. Overall great purchase!

Cons: None

Great Paddle at a Great Price Steve B Intermediate

Pros: I think this paddle hits hard for the swing. I find myself not swinging as hard but still generating good power. I also like the weight. Like lots of players, I have tennis elbow and switching to this paddle has helped me personally.

Cons: Surface is reasonably grippy but if you are looking to generate maximum spin, you might consider other choices. Personally, I like the spin this paddle gives on both ground strokes and dinks.

When I ordered online it said a cover was to be shipped with paddle at no charge. Did not receive cover, just received paddle today.
Checking on the listing for the Engage Encore EX 6.0 BLEM Middleweight Composite Pickleball Paddle, we do not show anything pertaining to a cover.
Do you have blemished Engage Encore EX 6.0 in lightweight
Marilyn Harvey
We do not have the Engage Encore EX 6.0 Blemished in lightweight. We do however have the Engage Encore MX 6.0 Blemished in lightweight
Are the blemished paddles new or are they previously owned/ tried paddles? Thank you
Janine carter
The blemishes on the paddle are from a manufacturing error. They are still in brand new condition. I cannot exactly identify the blemish, but usually its just a misprint or smudge from manufacturing.
