Description Technical Specs

Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle

The Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle is the first graphite paddle to come from the highly-respected paddle manufacturer, Paddletek. The graphite face is extremely responsive and provides a quicker pop off the paddle’s face, resulting in a faster game. Inside, the polymer core is the quietest core material and is awesome for the “touch” game. The combination of a graphite face with a polymer core is said to provide a better ground stroke and is certainly a “player’s paddle”. The sharp-looking face features the graphic of a wave as a nod to the paddle’s name, “Tempest”.

The Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle is a great choice for players looking for a paddle with a relatively long handle without being too heavy. The 5 1/4” long handle is perfect for ex-tennis players, while the grip is a great smaller size. The 8” wide face provides ample hitting surface, and the overall length of the paddle is a respectable 15-7/8” long. The 7.35 to 7.6 ounce weight range is light enough to give killer dink shots, yet heavy enough to have some power when need be.

The Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle is sure to be a crowd favorite.

Available in the following colors: blue, red, pink

Please note: grips sizes are approximate

Here's a transcript of the video: Hey, it’s Jennifer Lucore, and I play with the Tempest. I like it the best because it has some really great feel. The weight I like is about 7.5 ounces and it has really great touch so get yourself a Tempest.

My first paddle April 16, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Santa Cruz, CA United States  
I'm not an expert, but so far, so good. This is, I'm told, a "control" paddle—which is what I need. (Power isn't a problem for me.)

My only beef was the significant ridges on the handle grip. Personally, I don't like that feel. But since I was applying an overgrip anyway, it didn't affect me much.

Great paddle! April 4, 2017
Reviewer: TB from Clifton Park, NY  
This paddle is truly awesome. I had tried a few that were a bit too heavy and not quick enough in fast-paced exchanges at net. Then a few that were just too light and I started to get shoulder pain. The Tempest Wave wa just right for me. I highly recommend anyone with a big stroke looking for the perfect blend of power, control and spin give it a try.

Tempest / quick gift order February 27, 2017
Reviewer: Wade Zimostrad from Buckeye, AZ United States  
Your customer service team rocks !! Needed a Valentines day gift for my wife (new paddle for her since she cracked the previous one), called on the 13 th and with c/s help, selected a replacement,  and it arrived on Valentines day (albeit in the evening due to snafu with ups)  but it was a solid experience,  and I know right where to go next time we need paddleball gear !  Thanks so much.
