Kinetic Ovation Speed Pickleball Paddle by ProKennex

The Kinetic Ovation Speed is a unique paddle with excellent vibration-dampening properties, responsiveness and touch. The Ovation's oval shape and edge-less style prevent mis-hits while greatly widening the sweet spot. Thanks to special tungsten-filled chambers, this paddle absorbs energy to prevent shock from affecting its handler. This means you can make play for longer periods of time without worrying about tenderness from "pickleball elbow."

The Kinetic Ovation Speed has a proprietary 7-layered face which offers a "spin-grab" feature so balls are more easily curved across the court. The paddle has a 7.7 - 8.0 oz weight range and its handle measures 4-7/8" with a small grip. Its design has a colored background with two stripes of white running vertically on the left side of the face. Near the top is a circular white emblem with the ProKennex logo in the center.

The Kinetic Ovation Speed is a pro quality paddle the eliminates concerns about shaky handling and fatigue, allowing players to focus on high level strategy.

Please note: Due to the edge-less design, this paddle will develop wear to the graphic overlay and small chips on the edge during play. This is normal wear and tear and is not considered a defect in the product. See Photo below. Application of the included training tape will help preserve the paddle edge.

Unlike other "edgeless" paddles, the perimeter of the paddle is an integrated carbon fiber frame with the core inset flush to the edge. This carbon fiber flush frame is designed to withstand normal play ground strike impacts, but it will show wear more easily than a typical "edged" paddle. This wear does not diminish the performance or playability of the paddle, and in our own internal testing, after hundreds of hours of play, the paddle holds up exceptionally well without any change in play. Consider these scrapes and wear marks as a badge of honor, earned by hours on the court!

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

5 of 5 Tennis elbow January 21, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This paddle was recommended by a pro who noticed I was wearing an elbow support.  It is kinetic and helps absorb shock.  I tried it and like it.  
Pickleball central worked with me, I was trying to find a lighter weight but one was not available and after several weeks of still dealing with forearm pain and weakness (but not willing to take a break from pickleball) I gave in and bought the paddle.  They honored the discount price since I was on a wait list.  I am happy with the paddle so far and think my elbow is slowly improving.

5 of 5 Great paddle! January 13, 2020
Reviewer: David Lyons from Ball Ground, Ga  
I went from a Pro-Lite Covert to the Kennex Ovation and, after some getting used to, I love the Ovation! What you loose in size for the paddle you gain in speed, control and accuracy. Still getting used to the paddle but getting better with every game. Highly recommend!

5 of 5 Love it January 8, 2020
Reviewer: Chantale Tremblay from Oliver, BC Canada  
I love it.  This is a gift you should do for your elbow and your game.  I can feel the extra power it gives to me and the control I got in any shots.   Before, I played with an Engage Poach Advantage wich is an excellent paddle for sure but I still need to wear my elbow brace when I increase my frequence of play.  With the Ovation, after 11 days in a row, I could feel a release on my elbow.  I think I'm on my way to recover.  Now I'm switching paddles back and forth because I love my Poach Advantage  as much as my Ovation.  The only modification I will do with my Ovation will be add a thicker tape on my handle to allow me to keep my hand more open.  It will help me to be more loose on my grip which will allow me to relax my muscles.

4 of 5 Very different December 20, 2019
Reviewer: robert brewington from casa grande, AZ United States  
I really wanted to like this paddle. Although it is the same weight (8 oz) as my normal paddle, it feels much lighter. It is faster to maneuver around. However, I found that balls hit in the top half of the paddle were "dead". I seem to hit a lot of balls in the top part:( See,s to have a small sweet spot compared to my normal paddle.
