The Poach Advantage is Engage’s most technologically advanced paddle. Most of the paddles on the market today have a skin surface consisting of 1-2 layers, Engage has developed a 6 layered surface with the same thickness as the paddles with 1-2 layers. This design creates one of the softest feeling paddles on the market and massively increases the dwell time for total ball control. This paddle also hits the limits of surface roughness to help produce more spin and control on the ball. The core in the Poach Advantage paddle has been redesigned as well. Engage wanted the core materials to behave differently depending on how hard the ball was struck, producing a paddle that had increased dwell time and maneuverability for the soft finesse game but would also maximize deflection/power so you could put the ball away when needed. Polymer cores used today are transparent in color, but Engage’s polymer core is black due to the changing chemical attributes to provide the desired playability, also known as “Control Pro Black” technology. Take your game to the next level with Engage’s Poach Advantage Paddle. This paddle is available in two weight ranges; Poach Advantage & Poach Advantage Lite.
