Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle

The Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle is a top-of-the-line paddle backed by immense amounts of research. The fiberglass face provides a sturdy structure for hours of play while the Nomex honeycomb core sits inside the paddle surrounded by a Live Periphery TM Frame. This border encompasses the sides of the core, acting as a shield to protect it from developing dead spots. On top of this border lies a Flush-Fit TM Bumper, which is flat against the surface of the face to remove the possibility of mis-hitting due to the edge guard. The words “Gamma” and “ION” are found on the lower left side of the paddle’s face and are set atop of a round-celled background with a blue tint.

The average Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle weighs in lighter from 7.2 to 7.5 ounces, providing players with great touch and maneuverability. The paddle is nice and wide, measuring 8-1/8” across the face. From the top of the face to the bottom of the handle, the paddle measures 15-1/2” long and has a 5-1/8” long handle. The Unibody Handle TM molds the face with the handle into one solid piece, aiming to increase your connection with the paddle. Wrapped in a Gamma PB Contour Grip, this paddle’s grip has a smaller circumference than average.

The Gamma Ion Pickleball Paddle is a great paddle for those who want a lightweight paddle with an enormous hitting area.

Here's a transcript of the video: Hi, I’m Chuck Vietmeier with Gamma Pickleball. Today I’d like to talk to you about the Ion paddle. The Ion paddle is a lightweight paddle that’s ideal for the recreational player. Coming in at 7 ounces, it is a very maneuverable paddle, great play at the net and a lot of dinking. This paddle has two key features that we’ve brought into the pickleball world, and that is the Live Periphery Frame that goes around the outer egde of the paddle, along with the Unibody handle. Both give you a nice stable, light, maneuverable feel. This paddle has a fiberglass face with a Nomex core. It is rimless, ideal for indoor play or outdoor play. Please give the Ion a try.

Here's a transcript of the video: Can you tell us your name? I’m Rick Potter. Where you from, Rick? I’m from Ashland, Kentucky. Great. What paddle do you play with? Right now I’m playing with the Gamma Ion, and I just switched over to it not too long ago. What is it about the Ion that you like? Well, it’s light and I feel like it makes me a little quicker. And it’s still got touch, and it still got power with it. That’s great. Thank you so much.

Review of gammaIon Paddle November 21, 2016
Reviewer: James Beraduce from Middleboro, MA United States  
Paddle was average-a little to light in weight and the handle length was a bit to long for me. So far the Z5 Graphite follow by the Encore Composite are my paddles of choice.

Rimless Paddle September 24, 2016
Reviewer: Pkoz from Ellicott City , MD United States  
I have been playing pickleball for about 5 months and have been using the wooden rimless paddles provided by the center.  Trying to decide what paddle to purchase has taken longer than expected.   I have practiced using a variety of paddles from other players.  After using multiple paddles and talking to numerous people, I decided that I wanted to go with a lighter weight rimless paddle.  Everyone suggest making the purchase from Pickleball Central.  Jenny was quite helpful in finding the correct paddle.  While it took some time getting used to the lighter weight paddle, I am glad that I chose the Gamma Ion Composite Paddle.  I love the rimless
feature and would definitely recommend this paddle.

Nice paddle August 11, 2016
Reviewer: SNick from SoCal  
This paddle has a lot of "pop". It's lighter than the one I've been using, so I find I need to push and use more muscle to power the ball, but think I will get used to this in time.
The paddle arrived in a couple days as promised.
