ProKennex Kinetic Ovation Speed II Pickleball Paddle

The Kinetic Ovation Speed II Paddle is the upgraded model of the original paddle, offering new colors and a new feature. The most innovative feature added is the new Air-O-Guard, a removeable edge guard that allows you to replace a single part rather than replacing your entire paddle if it becomes damaged. Additionally, the Ovation Speed II continues to feature a 7-layer coating on the face that creates spin and makes it easier to gain a competitive edge and control your shots.

The Kinetic Ovation Speed II Paddle has a small 4" grip circumference (actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8"), and a 4-7/8" long handle. The weight is in the medium range coming in at 7.7 - 8.0 oz for a balanced feel that offers a confidence-inspiring degree of both power and precision. The core material uses honeycomb polymer that is highly impact resistant, combined with ProKennex's Kinetic impact-dampening technology, to help prevent "pickleball elbow" while maintaining consistent touch. It also makes for a quieter sound which is less disruptive to play.

The ProKennex Ovation Speed II Paddle with Kinetic technology has a streamlined and adaptive design that will last as you improve your game.

The Ovation Speed II Paddle with Kinetic is a part of the "Speed" line of ProKennex Pickleball Paddles. This is the upgraded second generation of this paddle line, and the revisions improve upon an already high quality design to provide excellent versatility, touch, and placement. Released in December of 2020, this second generation added the innovative (and replaceable) Air-O-Guard edge protector, and offers two new colors. There are two shapes in the Speed II line - the "Ovation" Shape (oval), and the "Pro" shape (rectangular). Click here to visit the Pro Speed II paddle page.

Reviews of the Kinetic Pro Flight Ovation Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"Have you ever thought to yourself, ‘I wonder why paddle manufacturers haven’t designed a paddle that is just basically the shape of a sweet spot?’ I certainly have, and that question is answered in the Kinetic Ovation Speed 2 from ProKennex. The result? A little of what I expected, and a little of what I didn’t. Much like ProKennex’s Pro Speed model, the Ovation is a highly maneuverable paddle thanks to its slim profile, and the unique shape does indeed seem to ‘grow’ the sweet spot a bit and position it right at the center of the paddle. Think of it, to a certain degree, as replicating the predictable trampoline effect of striking a tennis racket in the dead center. This second generation Ovation retains the grippy surface texture and Kinetic vibration dampening technology that ProKennex paddles have become well-known for, while adding eye-catching new colors and an unobtrusive (not to mention replaceable!) bumper-style edge guard tacked onto the outside edge of the paddle. Because I’m no pro, the top edge of my previous ProKennex paddle took some punishment from court surfaces as I attempted to dig out low balls. This new, light, slim edge guard feature will definitely save me ‘dang its.’

This is a forgiving paddle which enhances my ability to place dinks with confidence, and the ‘Spin-Grab’ texture turns the action on my cut serves up several notches. I’d be fibbing if I didn’t say I enjoy frustrating my opponents with it! Finally, as a 6’3” tall player with larger-than-average hands and a table tennis background, I appreciate the oval shape accommodating my ‘finger-up’ grip style and the ease with which I can build up the thin 4” handle circumference with a couple rolls of overgrip to achieve that perfect thickness. All in all, I am loving this paddle and already know I’ll be reaching for it often."

5 of 5 Nice Upgrade February 14, 2021
Reviewer: EM  
Speed II seems a hair heavier, with a tad more power. If you like the Speed, you will like the II. The new integral paddle guard is slick. Looks good and works great. This paddle has a hair more power.

5 of 5 Kinetic ovation December 20, 2020
Reviewer: Lori Davis from Edmond , OK United States  
I ordered the Ovation due to having elbow tendinitis. Played with it the first time and it reduced my pain tremendously. The paddle has really good touch when playing. I am very pleased.

5 of 5 This has really helped lessen my PB elbow December 13, 2020
Reviewer: Sharon from Plano, TX United States  
I was skeptical that a paddle could make a different on my elbow, but this one has.  I can't say my pain is completely gone, but it's only been a week and the tendons in my forearm no longer hurt.  The elbow is feeling better and I’m happy to be playing again.
