Description Technical Specs

Pursuit EX Pickleball Paddle

The Pursuit EX Paddle from Engage Pickleball offers a finely honed touch which can be used to control every shot with a high level of accuracy. Its surface is made up of a proprietary omni-directional graphite, creating a natural texture which provides friction against pickleballs. Unlike overlaid materials, this texture won't wear away with use and will continue to feel "grippy" so it can be adding spin with ease. Engage's Control Pro Black core creates a very gentle yet durable base which dampens vibration while improving reactivity.

The Pursuit EX Pickleball Paddle has a 5" long handle with a medium circumference of about 4.25". The EX is offered in three different weights to ensure its feel and balance suit to your style of play. The featherweight model weighs in at 7.1 - 7.4 oz, lite weighs 7.5 - 7.8 oz, and the standard weight range is 7.9 - 8.3 oz. The paddle's grip has a high amount of tack with perforations so that your hand stays secure even when sweating or in hot temperatures. Its core is 1/2" thick, offering more power and "pop" for your game.

The Pursuit EX Pickleball Paddle has an exceptional feel and will serve to add consistency and precision to your game.

Reviews of the Pursuit EX Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The Pursuit EX is an exciting new paddle from Engage. By taking their traditional powerful cores and adding a graphite face, they have built a paddle that allows control-oriented players to fall in love with an Engage paddle. This EX is a traditionally shaped paddle, and is designed for all-court and defensive player styles. It still delivers plenty of "pop" for your drives thanks to the 0.5-inch-thick core. It features a generous sweet spot to assist you in improving your drops and dinks, and thanks to its exposed graphite on the paddle face it has tremendous texture for wicked spin.

If you love the width of a traditionally shaped paddle, and desire even more control than this EX offers, you should try out the
Pursuit EX 6.0 which offers all of the benefits of this EX while adding an extra 1/10" to the thickness of the core. The slightly thicker core material widens the sweet spot even more, while dampening the power just a touch. Either way you go, the new Pursuit line from Engage will provide you extra confidence in your game."

5 of 5 Pursuit EX Graphite Paddle June 12, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Mattawan, MI United States  
I enjoy playing with this paddle.  I like the way the ball comes off the paddle and I like the shape of the grip.  I’m very picky about the feel of the grip.

4 of 5 Engage Pursuit EX March 15, 2022
Reviewer: Jim Malone from QCPC, Green Valley, AZ  
I have only played with elongated paddles for the past few years.
When I first looked at this paddle I was skeptical that it would work for me, being more of a traditional shaped paddle. What a nice surprise.
I find I have much better control with this paddle particularly during net play.
It does not have as much "pop" as my past paddles, however if your strength is more the soft game than the power game this paddle just might be for you.

5 of 5 Pursuit EX Paddle July 7, 2021
Reviewer: Steven Hulse from Newburgh, NY United States  
I've used the Onix graphite for over 5 years ( 12 of them total) and was very happy with it. There is some vibration in off center hits, that at 74 years old I could do without. So I tried the Pursuit EX and by the second day I order a second paddle. It works as advertised. I ordered the lite at 7.6oz 4/14 grip. The paddles fast, with good pop.
