Engage Poach Infinity Pickleball Paddle

The Poach Infinity Composite Paddle from Engage Pickleball is the next generation of the beloved Poach Advantage Paddle that earned many fans over its long life. This new version features a soft feel that will be gentle on your joints yet produces enough put-away power to crush pickleballs when your opponents are unprepared. The composite skin is comprised of 6 layers of face material which result in incredible responsiveness. This unique approach to layering on the paddle face is augmented by omni-directional texturing for more control, and the ability to impart tremendous spin on your cut shots. This surface texture is applied evenly with superior bonding techniques, resulting in wonderful consistency and durability so you won't experience the texture wearing away, even after prolonged use.

The Poach Infinity Paddle is offered in two weight ranges so you can choose between an agile lightweight model, or a midweight model with more mass (and therfore more "punch"). The 5.5" long handle is wrapped in a tacky, medium-circumference grip with a perforated cushion that will absorb sweat and draw it away from the hand. The Infinity's width is a full 8" so you can enjoy the advantages of a generous sweet spot, great blocking ability, and reactive play. The core is manufactured from Engage Pickleball's proprietary Control Pro Black Polymer which, when combined with the 6-layer face material, provides a high degree of finesse and touch.

The Engage Poach Infinity Composite Paddle is a durable and reliable piece of equipment that is as easy on its handler as it is tough on the competition.

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

Reviews of the Poach Infinity Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"Engage has always been known for their power paddles. Their line has as much power as any on the market. The problem for me has always been harnessing that power. When they came out with the Poach Advantage, I loved it because I felt I could control it. The new Poach Infinity is even better!

I used to carry the Poach Advantage in my bag for the days I felt I needed a Power Paddle. The only issue I had with the Poach Advantage was that I sometimes over-hit with a direct sweet spot strike. By contrast, I find the Poach Infinity to be very consistent at the sweet spot, no more “hot hits.” I can get the extra pop AND keep the ball between the lines.

The core thickness is a traditional 1/2” (like the
Elite Pro, Elite Pro Maverick and original Encore Composite) helping provide the pop. However, due to the 6-layer composite skin on the face, this paddle plays softer (more like the Trident or the Poach Icon). The Poach Infinity comes in Lite (7.5 – 8.0 oz.) and Standard (8.0 - 8.5 oz.) weight ranges. Handle length is longer than average at 5.5” and has one grip option at 4 1/4” in circumference.

Overall, I found the net play to be consistent, but I did need a game to dial it in. Once I did, I felt the Poach Infinity helped me handle windy conditions, and feel confident in the short game. For "all court" players who like a little power, the Poach Infinity is a must try."

"The Poach Infinity is a great balance of touch, control, and put-away power. I am a huge fan of paddles with a textured surface, and the Poach Infinity's textured face excels at allowing me to put the perfect amount of spin on the ball. I am able to reset shots and cushion blocks better thanks to the soft play of the paddle. As a player who naturally generates power, I was easily able to put away balls even with the 7.6 oz lightweight version of this paddle. Engage has won this player over with the release of the new Poach Infinity; I just might have found my new go-to paddle!"
Enrique, Member of Puget Sound Pickleball Club (4.5 Player)

5 of 5 Poach Infinity Paddle September 2, 2021
Reviewer: Karen Schmidt from Seattle, WA United States  
I love my new paddle.  I was able to get the weight I wanted by requesting in the comment section at check-out. It handles well and I am adapting to it quickly.  I have good control and I like the sweet zone...it feels bigger than my old paddle.

4 of 5 It Still Just a Paddle July 22, 2021
Reviewer: Michael Singer from Port St Lucie, FL United States  
I’ll give this paddle four stars as it’s performing well. But it’s still just a paddle, so when I hit a bad shot it’s not the paddles fault. It is a nice improvement over my Onix X5. It has a nice solid sound when I strike the ball.

5 of 5 Poach Infinity June 30, 2021
Reviewer: Eric from Richwood, OH  
This is my second Engage purchase from PC. Ordered lightweight paddle and received paddle weighing just under 8 oz. Slightly heavier than previous paddle, but still feel quick in the net exchanges. Good mix of touch on dinks and power on drives and overheads. Confident in the durability as Engage offers a limited lifetime warranty if you register with them. Looking forward to using this paddle in a couple tournaments this summer and continuing to refine my game.

5 of 5 Brandi & Drew rock!!! June 20, 2021
Reviewer: Adam Wright from Monmouth, OR United States  
Holy cow USPS bungled my paddle delivery with a little help from me. Brandi and Drew worked diligently apart from each other to fix this disaster. It was made clear and apparent that I was going to be taken care of. They rushed another paddle down from WA to OR in 30 hours with UPS. Meanwhile USPS was 12 miles away sitting on my paddle for 7 strait day. I have many takeaways: Pick up the phone and call pickleball central. Spend 30 seconds getting connected right away to a real service ninja Drew or Brandi. Near immediate satisfaction and feelings of trust ensue. - Adam Wright PBCentral customer for life
