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 Best paddle ever. December 7, 2019
Reviewer: James Spiegel from ROMOLAND, CA United States  
Not only does the Ovation have a huge sweet spot the placement control is excellent. The biggest factor in my excellent rating is the relief I have gotten for my pickleball elbow and shoulder pain. Pro Kinetic got it right in designing a paddle that takes a big share of the shock and not your arm.

5 of 5 Softer Player December 4, 2019
Reviewer: John from Fulton, IL United States  
The shape of the Ovation is similar to tennis and ping-pong, which is my history, so I feel more familiar with where the surface edges are. The Kinetic response is as advertised; it was easy to notice when I first used the paddle, but the significance of the effect was impressive in comparison to a non-kinetic paddle after using the Ovation for several games. There is a power loss with this paddle, and a dink-game adjustment; I have to hold the paddle tighter during my dink game or the ball lands in the net.  Great for reseting pace at the line. Spin is easy to generate (no difference for me here). My adjustment to the Ovation required 15 games. I was drawn to the Ovation because I have arthritis. My Ovation is 8.0oz, with a 4 1/8" circumference handle. My hand size is 4 1/2", but the smaller handle feels good. The edgeless design is nice.

5 of 5 Quickly Comfortable December 3, 2019
Reviewer: Wess Adams from Shelbyville Tennessee  
The very first day my paddle arrived, my wife brought it to the rec center where I was already playing. We were nearing the end of three hours of play, and our last game was in progress 4-5-1. I grabbed my new Kinetic Ovation Speed Pickleball Paddle, anxious to try it out. I have only had one paddle since I began 2 years ago, a Paddletek. As soon as I got the wrapping off the handle and served my first ball with it, I was comfortable. Simply amazed at how quickly I became confident of this wonderful paddle. I noticed the touch on my third shot drop had a confident feel. I felt the paddle move through the air easily and contacting the returning ball was so precise. I made an excellent choice!

Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Just bought my new paddle and I love it.  It is very light and well balanced.  About  two weeks after receiving it, I noticed that the surface was bubbled up near the one edge.  Customer service at Pickle Ball Central was fabulous.  They shipped me a new paddle immediately and let me continue to use the damaged paddle while the new one was in transit.  I was so impressed that I bought a new pair of shoes as well.  You have all my pickle ball business.  Keep up the good work.
