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.

Improved Pickleball Play June 24, 2018
Reviewer: Bill Crow  
This PaddleTec paddle clearly improved my play with fewer unforced errors, better touch and control, without sacrificing power when needed. I would definitley recommend this paddle to a friend as well as the great service and breadth of information  provided by Pickleball Central.

Perfect weight balance and power! June 22, 2018
Reviewer: Ralph Brinley from Bonita Springs, FL United States  
Thanks Pickleball Central for getting my order to me quickly!  The Paddletek Tempest Wave is a great paddle.  Lightweight at 7.7 oz, slightly oversized, longer handle and nicely balanced.  Easy to control firm volleys and ball flight while dink shots softly drop in by releasing grip pressure. Net play is easier since you can choke up on paddle.  A great choice!!
