Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle

This is a limited-time resurrection of the venerable Tempest Wave Graphite Pickleball Paddle, and a throwback to the first graphite paddle to come from the highly-respected manufacturer, Paddletek. The textured graphite face has the same great control of the original Tempest Wave. Inside, the half-inch-thick Tempest PolyCore dampens vibrations and is awesome for the "touch" game at the net. The combination of a graphite face with a polymer core is said to provides fantastic placement on ground strokes, and is certainly considered by many to be a "player's paddle." The sharp-looking face features the graphic of a huge wave as a nod to the "Tempest" paddle line, meaning "a violent windstorm."

The Tempest Wave is a great choice for players looking for a paddle with a relatively long handle without being too heavy. The 5-1/8" long handle is good for ex-tennis players, while the grip is a usable medium 4-1/4" in circumference. The 8" wide face provides ample hitting surface and a broad sweet spot, while the overall length of the paddle provides fair reach at 15-7/8". The 7.4 to 7.8 ounce weight range is light enough to promote great hand speed during quick exchanges, yet heavy enough to deliver some power when called upon.

The Tempest Wave was a breakout hit for Paddletek back in the day, and is back only for a very limited time so grab it while you can and enjoy this classic!

Transcript of Video #3 - Jennifer Lucore

Hey, it’s Jennifer Lucore, and I play with the Tempest. I like it the best because it has some really great feel. The weight I like is about 7.5 ounces and it has really great touch so get yourself a Tempest.

5 of 5 This was a great choice. May 26, 2022
Reviewer: Pilan from greenbrier, AR United States  
Anastasia, Scott and the person that took my order,  all helpful. I ended up with this paddle because it had just been added to your  paddle list. Great choice. It's helping to have one paddle to use rather than a student paddle.  I love the way your product details are displayed to compare.

5 of 5 Best Paddle for Me April 28, 2022
Reviewer: Kathy R. from Reading, MA United States  
I've gone through many Pickleball paddles.  This paddle tech Tempest have been one of the best.  Good weight, good grip length & grip size.  It has helped improve my game immensely.  I still hit shots into the net, but not that many.  I can't blame it on the paddle😂
