Tempest Pro Graphite Pickleball Paddle by Paddletek

The 2019 Tempest Pro models are the ones that feature a different design on the front vs the back. We expect to have a small number of the older original designs available in the next few days, so we have left those images visible for you to see.

The Tempest Pro Graphite Paddle uses Smart Response Technology to strengthen the feel and sensitivity of the original Tempest Wave. You get the same responsive touch, but with more power to take control of the game when needed. The extra power is not too overwhelming and actually adds to the forgiveness provided in the standard Tempest model.

The Tempest Pro Graphite Paddle comes with either a thin or thick grip so you can choose the style which best suits your needs. The handle is 5-1/4" long which offers enough extra space to adjust your grip for either more reach or control. The 8" wide graphite face creates a large sweet spot that will feel smooth no matter where you hit.

The Tempest Pro Graphite Paddle will take both your skill shots and slams to a new level with its high quality materials.

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

Reviews of the Tempest Pro Graphite Paddle

Video Transcription - Maggie Remynse

Hi, my name is Maggie Remynse. I am originally from Michigan but right now I live in upstate New York in Buffalo. So, I play with the Tempest Pro. I've been playing with this paddle since December when it was first released. What I really love about this paddle is, it really joins being able to play the soft game and getting some power on it. So, I used to play with the Tempest, just the regular, and I love the fact that I can get some really good dinks with it, and my 3rd's were great but I didn't get as much power as I liked, so with this paddle I get to join the power of the Bantam with the soft game of the Tempest and this is what I love about this paddle.

Hi, my name is Shari O'Quinn. I live in Gig Harbor, Washington. This is the Tempest Pro. I fell in love with this paddle the moment it was put in my hand. It has incredible balance. I think it's one of the best balanced paddles out there. I love the touch and the control that I get when I play with the Tempest Pro, love this paddle.

Hi, my name is Sarah Yates-Parker. I'm originally from Ft. Meyers, Florida but moved to North Carolina when I played soccer in college. I use the Tempest Pro made by Paddletek. I recently changed to this paddle because of the touch and feel. It's a little lighter than what I'm used to but is very helpful when in defensive mode so that's why I use the Tempest Pro.

5 of 5 My upgrade from Tempest Wave to Tempest Pro October 17, 2019
Reviewer: Greg Smith from Lititz, PA United States  
I was a long term Tempest Wave user.  I tried a demo Tempest Pro and really liked it. I have had my new Tempest Pro a few weeks now and have played several different balls, both indoor and outdoor.
Pros - greatly improved touch, the sweet spot has more power, and great graphics.
Cons - Not a good paddle for JUGS balls. I know, why would you want to play with them anyway! Other indoor balls play fine. (Where the Pro really shines is when you play Dura or Franklin outdoor balls-more control).  
Pickleball Central gets 5-Stars for customer satisfaction on service (I called to order as I was requesting a specific on paddle weight) and quick shipping time. I ordered Thursday and the paddle arrived Monday!
Now I just need to buy a back up Tempest Pro for tournaments!
In summary Paddletek has a winner with the Tempest Pro.
See you on the courts!
