Description Technical Specs

GAMMA Compass Graphite Pickleball Paddle

The Compass Graphite Paddle gives players a long and versatile reach paired with a top quality polymer core. The special NeuCore technology uses larger cells that and a 25% thicker core to create a paddle that feels gentle on impact but still offers power when needed. Its textured graphite face meets USAPA guidelines but makes it easier to add spin to balls. Despite its length, the Compass has an excellent sense of balance that can be used to control shots from any angle.

The Compass Graphite Paddle is a generous 16-5/8" long and weighs approximately 7-3/4 oz. It has a 4-3/4" long handle with a small grip that allows for quick changes in positioning. The face features a large image of a compass printed along the left side with the Gamma logo in the upper right corner. These designs are offset by a smooth, grey-colored background and the paddle's name on the right.

The Compass Graphite Paddle will direct you towards a higher standard of play thanks to its smooth, dynamic feel and adaptable length.

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

Test Reviews of the Gamma Compass Pickleball Paddle:

"Our club, Tomahawk Area Pickleball, tested the Gamma Compass with a cross section of players: men and women with skill levels ranging from 2.5 to 4.0. Across the board, players found the Compass provided a solid punch. One 3.5 player noted he liked 'the pop off the face of the paddle.' Another was overjoyed by the large sweet spot: 'For the first time, I felt like I knew where the ball was going when I hit it.' The touch of the paddle was praised by one of our 4.0 players. She found it made her third-shot drops more consistent and was impressed by the control it offered for shot placement. The elongated face also made reaching shots easier. Our aggressive players loved the paddle's feel, noting it felt soft even when hitting hard. The short handle and smaller grip make it perfect for players with small to normal-sized hands. The square grip is great for transitions and positioning during awkward shots. Until it was mentioned after play, most players never even noticed the Compass' extra thickness. Everyone enjoyed the Compass' balance, many of whom had never used an elongated paddle before. That's a true compliment to the designers at Gamma. Overall we found the Gamma Compass a great paddle, especially for those looking to add that extra bit of touch to their net game while still craving power. The most frequent compliment I heard was the exceptional feel when striking the ball. This paddle may be what the advanced player needs for a shot-making edge, but the average player will find great comfort in the oversized sweet spot. If you ever have an opportunity to try the Gamma Compass, you won’t be disappointed."

gamma compas September 1, 2019
Reviewer: Rick from Maryland  
O K......here it goes!  I have been playing with the Gamma needle for over a year and have been loving it.  Love the feel the shape and the control. So....why not try the compass?
I ordered a 7.7 compass because pickleball central weighs the paddles when they arrive to the store.  I received the compass and I absolutely love it.... even better than the needle.  You can hear the difference right off from the start.  The compass has far more pop and power than the needle and has the same touch and control due to the graphite hitting surface.  When it is time to put it away, the compass does the job!  
It seems like everyone who tries this paddle ends up ordering one for themselves.  It's a keeper for sure!

Compass vs. Needle August 26, 2019
Reviewer: Steve from towson, md  
I have been using the Gamma Needle for almost a year and love it.  So when I saw the new Compass from Gamma I wanted to try it. The Compass is a fine paddle - shaped exactly like the Needle but thicker. It plays a bit quieter and softer with a bit more rebound than the Needle. I liked the Compass but don't think it is better than the Needle and wouldn't switch at this point.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Orlando  
First Gamma pickleball paddle. I love the way the paddle look. Have it over a couple months and my game definitely improved.  With the extra length, help with the overhead shot.  The power is there when need it. Fun paddle to use. Thank you Gamma...
