The Poach Extreme, the most technologically advanced paddle in the market is now in a ‘Blade’ version hitting the USAPA size limits. The Poach Extreme is the first of the next generation ‘Blade’ paddle taking paddle design and development to new levels.
Most of the 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 proprietary design and concept was developed by Engage. This concept and design not only creates the softest feeling paddle in the market but holds the ball even longer than past generation skins. The texture is also new. 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. This paddle holds the ball longer than past generation paddles when swinging slow (enabling the most control possible) and also maximizes deflection/power so you can put the ball by your opponents at will when swinging fast. Engage calls this Variable Release Technology.
All the polymer cores used today are transparent in colour. The new proprietary polymer composite core is black, due to changing the chemical attributes to provide the desired playability and to make it the most advanced core in Pickleball. Engage Pickleball call it Control Pro ‘Black’ Technology.
