Description Technical Specs

Encore XL Composite Pickleball Paddle

The Encore XL makes reaching for long shots and using a double-handed backhand a breeze. This paddle has a super long 6-1/4 handle so you can easily hold it with two hands. Distant lobs or speedy slams near your feet are easier to deal with when you have this paddle's reach and fluid shape. If you're concerned about missing tricky shots when an opponent tosses you a spinner, that's when you can be sure this paddle will save you from having to fling your body across the court as well!

The Encore XL's 7-3/4 wide face is highly textured, allowing you to put extra spin on balls. The polymer core dampens noise while providing a high level of control, and the grip is a balanced medium size. At a 7.1 7.5 oz weight, this paddle is speedy without losing power.

The Encore XL is a great option for former tennis players or those who love lots of length in a paddle. Available in Blue Fade, Red Fade, and Purple Fade.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

Engage Encore XL September 2, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Coarsegold, CA United States  
This is a good paddle and I appreciate the longer handle for extension on the forehand and double handed backhand.  My last one of the same type developed a dead spot after 10 months or so.  I’m hoping this one has a longer life.  The control is good, some concern for its longevity.

Paddle has changed from original! Disappointed! April 1, 2019
Reviewer: GEORGE ROUGHTON from GAINESVILLE, GA United States  
In Dec 2017 I purchased an Encore XL and loved it. It was getting a bit worn so I ordered another in March 2019. I was very disappointed with the new paddle. The old version had a  full 4 and 3/8 inch grip with a large tennis type end cap. The new paddle had a 4 and 1/4 inch (actually a little less) grip and a very small end cap. The smaller grip and lack of larger end cap meant I could not use it due to big hands. Customer service at both Pickleball Central and Encore insisted nothing had changed until I sent side by side pictures. Rather than return it my local paddle shop removed the leather wrapping and built up the  inner grip with heat shrink to fit me. They also built in a larger end cap so they rackets now are about the same. But the extra work cost me $50. Note: just using traditional over wrap did not work because many layers were required and handle became mushy- building up under the leather with a hard material was the only option.

Comfortable Paddle December 31, 2018
Reviewer: Debra Dell from Athens, AL  
The slightly longer handle takes some adjusting. The larger paddle face is very helpful with shots that would normally be out of reach and with digging up shots at the kitchen line. The texture of the paddle face is smoother than I'd prefer, so still learning how to use the paddle to slice. I'm liking the paddle much more than when first got it.
