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.

Love my new paddle! February 8, 2019
Reviewer: WILLIAM BROWNE from GEORGETOWN, TX United States  
I ordered a Paddletek Tempest Wave and I love the paddle. I am new to Pickleball and wanted at least an intermediate to advanced level paddle. I hit pretty hard and needed a paddle that had good control and this one seems to work fine. I wish it had a larger grip but I can regrip this too.  Good paddle for the money. Excellent service and the paddle arrived pretty fast.

Tempest Wave and Service January 18, 2019
Reviewer: R Glen RENNIE from Chame, PANAMA Panama  
My wife's rating: The paddle has better control than previous and more "pop". My control and dinking has improved with this paddle and that was what I was looking for. I am a 3 - 3.5 player and I find play to be easier than my previous $70- paddle (that was the same as my husband's previous paddle).  My husband said that if I am looking for something pickleball that I must look on Pickleball Central first.
