Description Technical Specs

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.

My new paddle Tempest Wave US open 2017 April 11, 2019
Reviewer: Daniel Jordan from Lancaster, SC United States  
It was a pleasure doing business again with PBC. As always very helpful in letting you know what they have and the weight of the paddle you want. I was using a Selkirk paddle prior to putting this Paddletek to use. This paddle is far superior to my Selkirk and I love it.

Tempest wave 2017 us open edition April 1, 2019
Reviewer: Chase Prewett from Wichita, KS United States  
This paddle is awesome! The shipping was scary fast. In fact my friend bought his paddle from amazon the same day as me but a couple hours before, and mine got here before his did.  Ordered paddle at 11 pm saturday and it showed up at my house at 9 am Monday.

Tempest Wave March 7, 2019
Reviewer: Ed Robertson from Petoskey, MI United States  
I have used the Tempest Wave 4 times since my purchase. The paddle arrived on time and in perfect condition. I have used the paddle 5 times thus far and I have enjoyed this paddle.  I previously owned a Z5 that I used for 2 years. Although I had no complaints about the Z5 I wanted to adjust to a softer more controlef game attempting to reach a 4.0 level of play. I’m finding that my dink game has more control and my volleys are crisp as the paddle has a light feel and minimal vibration.  The paddle also is quiet  As far as power I do not feel a drop off from the Z5 and I still can hit hard ground strokes when needed. I think this paddle will assist me reach my Pickleball goals.

Temp test Wave Graphite Paddle March 4, 2019
Reviewer: Joan Griep from Des Moines, IA United States  
Used it for the first time today. I played better with it than my old paddle 😀. The grip is just the right size and length and felt good in my hand. The paddle itself is a perfect weight for me. I look forward to many fun and challenging games with my new paddle. Thank you!
