ProKennex Ovation-Spin Lightweight Hybrid Pickleball Paddle
From one of the most forward-thinking brands in pickleball, ProKennex, the Kinetic Ovation Spin Paddle takes cues from other racquet sports alike with the addition of "strings." Although it doesn't look like strings on tennis or badminton racquets, the Ovation-Spin was born from these concepts. You can feel the full-length ridges in the paddle that combine with a textured surface known as Webspun to boost your potential to hit spinning shots of all kinds. Add spin to your game with Prokennex ridges also bolster dwell time and ProKennex's Kinetic vibration-dampening system which mitigates impact vibrations from traveling up your arm. The result is a paddle that offers both grit tac for cut shots that catch your opponents off guard.
With the Kinetic Ovation Spin Paddle, ProKennex tweaked their popular oval shape for even more performance. This reengineered shape eliminates the tip of the oval, freeing up some length to be added to the handle, resulting in a tennis-player-friendly 5 3/10" handle length and 16.14" overall length. The width remains 7 3/5" while the core thickness is a trim, aerodynamic 11mm (0.43"). The result is a higher sweet spot that boosts power and maintains feel, so you can play to your full potential in big tournaments and casual games alike.
As the Ovation Spin is a tech-heavy ProKennex paddle, it retains the reliable Kinetic System that you have come to expect. This technology uses tungsten beads in the core to limit vibrations and further disperse impact so you can get out and play comfortably day in and day out, and recover faster. This paddle also boasts the fully replaceable Air-O-Guard edge guard (coming soon for this model), and comfortable ProKennex cushion grip wrapped around the 4" circumference handle.
ProKennex is kind enough to extend a one-year manufacturer's limited warranty period on this paddle. This warranty is for manufacturer defects.
