Tempest Wave Pro Graphite Pickleball Paddle by Paddletek

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 a broader and more forgiving sweet spot which translates to consistent responsiveness across the face of the paddle. In short, this is a control-oriented paddle that doesn't sacrifice the power you have become accustomed to in the venerable Tempest model line.

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".

As of February 2021, the Tempest Wave Pro is part of the Expanded Tempest Pro line. The line has expanded to create multiple shape options for the players, allowing them to use the same beloved 5-Star rated paddle technology, but giving the choice in shape to best suit their game. The Tempest Wave Pro is a traditionally shaped paddle with a wider sweet spot, and sets the industry benchmark for control. It's counterpart, the Tempest Reign Pro is a slightly longer, slightly more narrow version of the Wave Pro graphite paddle, giving more power with s longer (but slightly narrower sweet spot). The two shapes share the same core and face technology - here's how they compare:

Below are some video reviews from strong amateur and pro players describing their experience with the Tempest Pro - these videos may have been shot before the launch of the latest colors, so while the paddles may not look the same, they play the same as the current model.

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.

Video Transcription - Sarah Yates

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.

Reviewer: Tom Puzak from New Hope, MN United States  
Excellent paddle, but so far I don't see much difference between the Paddletech & 2 other top of the line paddles that I have.
