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.

Raket review January 19, 2017
Reviewer: Chris Malone from Felton, DE United States  
OK racket, not great. It works well for lobs and finesse shots but lacks power for overheads.

Great Paddle January 1, 2017
Reviewer: Kenny Groshart from Memphis, TN United States  
Good mix between touch and power. The Polymer honeycomb core is softer than the Nomex Core in other Paddles. So if you want something with more pop get a Nomex Core paddle.

I Was trying to make the decision between a Graphite Nomex or Polymer honeycomb (Blaster or Tempest). I played with a Onix Z5 after playing with a Composite Face Polymer honeycomb core. Z5 way better for me. Really struggled with getting Nomex or no Nomex.

I ended up with the Tempest and I get more control and spin with hard strokes and cut strokes but also got the pop I wanted. Tempest is a great paddle and I love it.
