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.

Great shopping experience December 14, 2017
Reviewer: Steve M. from Cochranville, PA United States  
Experience could not have been better. Ordered 4 paddles, returned 3 after ~3 weeks.  Chose Paddletek Wave as it had best feel for me.  Return process very easy and received personal email from Marla confirming credit back on CC.

Not Sure November 27, 2017
Reviewer: Don from HENDERSON, NV United States  
I'm not certain I like this paddle.  I will try it for a couple more days and then decide.  I think the weight is about right (just a bit heavier than my old paddle), but it just doesn't have the 'feel' I'm looking for.
Pickleball Central is GREAT!   If I decide I don't like it, I can return it (and will get another).

Tempest Wave November 3, 2017
Reviewer: Frank Creamer from Berlin, MD United States  
Switched from Tempest to Tempest Wave. Same great paddle with a little more “pop”. Paddle creates a little more spin than my previous paddle. Easy change over from my Tempest.
