From the Pros

Enrique Ruiz

"From day one with the AMPED paddle, I have been very impressed with its ability to diffuse an opponent's spin and absorb power shots. With over 20 years of tournament experience, I can honestly say that the Epic AMPED is the best paddle I have ever played with!"

Randy Coleman

"I am a former college tennis player and instructor, and I am very picky about my equipment. The AMPED Epic Midweight is my choice for Singles for the shear serve and groundstroke power, and a larger sweet spot for volley power. The AMPED series feels soft and smooth when the ball comes off the paddle - easier and with less effort than you realize. You can choose from a variety of paddles to fit your game and escalate your shot consistency."

Letha Rodrigues

"I love my AMPED Epic 7.9 paddle - I can feel the touch better and it absorbs the hard hits exceptionally well. Thanks for THIS paddle!!!"

Weight Guide Overview

Lightweight ~ Quicker Hand Speed

A Lightweight paddle gives you quicker hands increasing your control and speed at the net.

Midweight ~ More Power

A midweight paddle generates more power making it perfect for hard drives and blocking shots.

Singles vs Doubles Paddles

Doubles is most often played at the net which means a lightweight paddles’ quickness will give you an advantage. Whereas using a midnight paddle for singles is advantageous because of its extra power.

Choosing by Comfort

In the end, choose the weight that feels best to you. If you don't know which weight is most comfortable, go with the lightweight version. Unless you are a Tennis player with a power game, the lightweight version is preferred by most players.

Why do paddles have a weight range?

The very slightest elements can affect the weight, a little more adhesive used on this paddle, a little less grip length on this one. It’s nearly impossible to make paddles to a very specific weight every time. And 0.1oz is really not much of a change as described below.

How much is 0.1oz?

A penny weighs about 0.1oz. And a 0.1oz weight difference in a paddle does not affect the performance or feel of a paddle, even for top Pickleball athletes.

How much does a difference in weight matter?

Some people tend to think they need a very specific weight or the paddle won't play right. This simply is not true. Even top Pros are not very picky about their paddle weight because they know slight weight differences do not affect the performance of a paddle.

Guaranteed Weight Range

Even though slight differences in weight do not affect most players game, we do recommend that advanced and pro players take advantage of our guaranteed weight range option. You can select a guaranteed weight range to receive a paddle within a 0.2oz difference (e.g. 7.4-7.6oz).
