Engage Pursuit MX Middleweight Blemished Graphite Pickleball Paddle

The Pursuit MX Graphite paddle (Reimagined Control, Power & Feel) is Engage's Flagship pickleball paddle and has been in development for a long time to ensure it will become one of the top-selling pickleball paddles in the sport.

Paddle Benefits

The Pursuit MX is the first graphite paddle released by Engage and is available in two different core thicknesses. The graphite face is developed specifically for the paddle to work with their black core, which is developed to be the softest core on the market. The graphite face features a rough texture that is built to last since it is a part of the paddle face/skin and not an overlaying texture. The graphite face is designed to increase friction and allow the ball to stay on the paddle longer. The combination of the black core and the graphite face give this paddle unmatched control, spin, and feel.

The MX model features a longer 5 3/4" handle length compared to the 5" handle on the EX model. This model also features the 1/2" thick core design and middleweight design, which provides similar control and feel to the 5/8" core, but you get increased power.


Engage is generous enough to offer a Limited Lifetime Manufacturer's warranty on this pickleball paddle. This warranty is for workmanship and manufacturer defects. If you get this paddle and experience any structural or performance trouble on it within a year from the purchase date, be sure and let the Paddle Experts at JustPaddles know your experience. The Paddle Experts are trained in product knowledge and will be happy to get you the information for starting a warranty claim with Engage.

Great paddle Dan Professional

Pros: Larger sweet spot than my Gearbox I was playing with. Also love the graphite textured surface which bites the ball better. I feel like I have more touch and this paddle also has some great pop. I could barely see the blemish. I'm a 4.5-5.0 player and love this paddle.

Cons: None so far
