Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle

The Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle is the first graphite paddle to come from the highly-respected paddle manufacturer, Paddletek. The graphite face is extremely responsive and provides a quicker pop off the paddle’s face, resulting in a faster game. Inside, the polymer core is the quietest core material and is awesome for the “touch” game. The combination of a graphite face with a polymer core is said to provide a better ground stroke and is certainly a “player’s paddle”. The sharp-looking face features the graphic of a wave as a nod to the paddle’s name, “Tempest”.

The Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle is a great choice for players looking for a paddle with a relatively long handle without being too heavy. The 5 1/4” long handle is perfect for ex-tennis players, while the grip is a great smaller size. The 8” wide face provides ample hitting surface, and the overall length of the paddle is a respectable 15-7/8” long. The 7.35 to 7.6 ounce weight range is light enough to give killer dink shots, yet heavy enough to have some power when need be.

The Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle is sure to be a crowd favorite.

Available in the following colors: blue, red, pink
Please note: grips sizes are approximate.

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.

Great June 22, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Alpharetta, GA United States  
I’m not sure what I can add to an already great rated paddle. Love the weight, sweet spot, grip and confidence it brings. Don’t at all regret the purchase or second guessing in favor of another paddle. It will be attached to my hand for years to come.

Excellent balance of power and control. June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Michael from Grass Valley, CA United States  
My consistnecy has improved since upgrading to this paddle, with very little loss of "pop" that I had with a previous heavier paddle.  I feel my overall game was improved almost immediately. Placement beats power any day.

Tempest Wave June 13, 2019
Reviewer: Fred Sanders from McCall, ID United States  
Enjoying new paddle. “Z” worked great for me but new Tempest Wave seems to have just as much power but with a quieter and more controllable touch. If that’s just in my head that works too.

Tempest Wave Graphite Paddle June 12, 2019
Reviewer: Susan Hoyle from Henderson, NC United States  
Very pleased with the Tempest Wave. It has a softer sound and while you may lose a tad of power, the control makes up for it. Pickleball Central was very accommodating in getting me the color and exact weight I wanted. They notified me as soon they got in what I wanted and got it to me in 3 days.
