Description Technical Specs

GAMMA Jester Graphite Pickleball Paddle

The GAMMA Jester Graphite Paddle is an agile yet sturdy piece of equipment with an excellent feel. It features GAMMA's NeuCore technology which is composed of 25% thicker cells to provide quiet, consistent and reactive play. The face has a slight texture which enhances control and makes it easier to add spin to your shots.

The GAMMA Jester Graphite Paddle is light weight at a 7.5 oz average. The small grip circumference makes it easy to handle and it has a 4-3/4" handle length which provides a nice balance between the paddle's surface area and space for your hand. Its design is composed of a red and black jester's cap with the paddle's name and GAMMA logo printed over a white background.

The GAMMA Jester Graphite Paddle has the speed and touch needed to let you leap ahead of the competition just like it's quick-witted namesake.

Reviews of the Gamma Jester Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

The Jester Paddle is no Joke. I know that’s a bad pun, but I couldn’t resist after playing with this paddle. This paddle was designed for people looking for a lighter, super high-performance graphite paddle. Because this paddle is slightly smaller than other graphite faced Gamma models (15.625" long by 7.5" wide = 23.125",a bit under the maximum 24” combined length+width allowed), I expected it to play like an intermediate level paddle. Boy was I wrong. The play reminds me of the exceptionally well regarded Gamma Shard, another top quality thick core, graphite faced paddle. I had great control on both short and long shots and there was no problem getting balls deep (even playing into the wind). That makes the Jester perfect for anyone looking for a lighter performance paddle. The average weight for the Jester is 7.5 oz. (A Shard averages 8.3 oz.) To get the advantages of the Gamma performance core, a graphite face and a light weight makes this a very intriguing paddle!

I totally agree with John. It plays very much like other thick core, graphite faced paddles; soft, supple, controllable but with predictable power when needed. I look at the reduced surface area of the smaller face as forcing a player to focus, but it pays off as being solid but light. But even when you mis-hit, the responsiveness is even nearly all the way across the face left-to-right, but loses some pop (like most traditionally shaped paddles) once you get much below the vertical midpoint. It’s a heck of a value, and plays very much like paddles which retail for a LOT more.

3 of 5 Not for me July 22, 2021
Reviewer: M Woods from Loveland, CO United States  
I was quite surprised that it seemed to play heavy even though the face is a little smaller than average and its weight is supposedly 7.4 - 7.6 oz. Actually a preprinted note on the packaging said it weighed 7.75 oz. In any case, I quickly determined to send it back.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Caldwell, ID United States  
Top notch gear and top notch folks to deal with, too.  Whenever I've placed an order, it seems like the package shows up on the porch almost before I've logged off the computer.

Reviewer: James Kammerzelt from San Benito , TX United States  
The paddle works well for me.  Like the grip (not round).  Paddle has a nice soft touch with plenty of power when needed.  Will see how it holds up under constant play as I play 5x a week.

5 of 5 Love this paddle September 5, 2020
Reviewer: Sherry from Lincoln , CA United States  
It took only a few days for this to become my favorite paddle.  I really like the light weight, it gives me more control.   The grip is perfect for smaller hands.
