From the Pros

Matty Klein

"I absolutely love love love the AMPED S2 Midweight. The heavier, the better. Control, power, and confidence is what this paddle has given me and my wife, Coach Meishen. Our students enjoy all the models, Lightweight and Midweight, and they love dinking due to the control of the AMPED, as well. Thank you for the quality paddles, great service, and support."

Helle Sparre

"The AMPED S2 Midweight is my fave. It gives me the ability to soften the bullets coming at me with confidence, has the power when I need it, and eats the spin up on both slice and topspin. So fun to play with this paddle."

Dominic Catalano

"Being a player that is very particular about what I use, the AMPED S2 Midweight is my paddle of choice. It is the perfect combination of feel and power! My game is all about control, and the AMPED S2 gives me that control at the kitchen line to put the ball where ever I want to. I would recommend any of the AMPED Series paddles to any player, from beginner to pro, because of each paddle's combination of feel and power!"

Joseph Johnson

"My AMPED S2 has given me the touch, power, and spin that compliments my all-court style of play. It has provided the ability to hit that deep return, allowing me ample time to get to the kitchen line for a power smash or a feathery soft drop shot. If you are a player with the ability to hit the specialty shots, you would love the AMPED S2!"

Marla White McGowan

"Love my AMPED S2 Midweight! I've always liked heavier paddles, but now with the thin grip, I can hold my paddle with a lighter grasp, allowing me to have a softer touch on the ball. I also really like the way the AMPED allows me to take the hard hits from the guys (the paddle absorbs so much, my body doesn't feel it) and allows me to respond with some control."

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).
