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 Worth the Price February 14, 2020
Reviewer: Syed from Long Grove, IL United States  
I was originally a little annoyed with the price of this paddle. But after having played with the paddle for a few hours, I was definitely *not* disappointed.

It lives up to its claims of being easy on the elbows. I’m also able to control hard shots at the net much better now (though I previously used a wooden paddle). I wholeheartedly recommend this paddle.

5 of 5 Comfortable paddle February 6, 2020
Reviewer: diane walker from La Crosse, WI United States  
Deciding on a paddle is difficult. I tried this paddle twice before Finally deciding to buy. My decision was based on the soft feel on impact and comfortable grip.  I’m still able to spin the ball, hit hard or soft and bang if I want.

4 of 5 Great weight and grip size. February 5, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Tulsa, OK United States  
The paddle is great with one exception.  With very little use the edge of the paddle chipped off.  I expected that would happen after awhile, but this was way too soon after I got it.  I was extremely disappointed because it was so new.  But you folks at Pickleball Central were extremely nice, and after seeing pictures of the paddle agreed to exchange it for a new one.  I so appreciate the way you do business and handled my concern.  I have recommended you to several of the people with whom I play Pickleball.  Thank you.

5 of 5 Standing Ovation for Pickleball Central January 25, 2020
Reviewer: Brad Otto from Blaine, WA United States  
Just purchased the Ovation. Shipped super fast and the extra goodies were a surprise.  (Cover and tape) completely fell in love with the paddle. Great feel, no power loss and the kinetic technology is real. My elbow pain seems to have disappeared! 10 stars to Pickleball Central for excellent customer service and 10 stars for the paddle.

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.
