The all-new Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle has a lot to teach you about it. The Poach Advantage, in the words of Engage Pickleball, is the “most technologically sophisticated paddle on the market” – and for good purpose. The Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle introduces the market to a new wave of paddle skin technologies.
The skin is made up of six layers, each of which has been sequenced in different angles and patterns to ensure the best possible paddle playability and ball responsiveness. The intention was to create a paddle skin that could hold the ball on the paddle for a longer time, allowing you a better feel and more chances to handle the pickleball with spin and rotation.
The Poach Advantage is the first paddle from Engage Pickleball to have Variable Release Technology, which is intended to keep the ball on the paddle for longer. The Poach Advantage’s Variable Release Technology allows it to keep the ball at slow swing speeds to improve ball rotation, while deflection and momentum are maximized when the paddle is swung quickly for hard hits.
The Engage Poach Advantage is equipped with everything Engage Pickleball has to sell, including a Cyclone Low-Profile Vinyl Edge Guard and Engage’s Ultra Perforated Grip. The Poach Advantage is not inexpensive, as it is priced at the top end of the market, but it gives you a lot of value on the court. Find out what you need to know about the Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle in our study.
Paddle Face & Edge Guard
Engage Pickleball’s exclusive Variable Release 6-Layer Fiberglad Polymer Composite skin is featured on the Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle face. Unlike other paddle faces, which are made up of 1-2 layers on the paddle face, the Poach Advantage has a 6-layer paddle face made up of 6-layers of identically thick fiberglass polymer composite.
The 6-layer architecture was created specifically to help the Poach Advantage’s ultimate goal of giving you power and playability across the board. The Poach Advantage skin will keep the ball for longer while swinging the paddle at slow speeds, enabling you to apply spin and ball rotation. When swinging the paddle at high speeds, the Poach Advantage skin will release the ball sooner, allowing you to apply spin and ball rotation.
The Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle is for pickleball paddles that are designed to control the pickleball with spin and strength. Furthermore, Engage’s latest Cyclone Low-Profile Vinyl Edge Guard protects the paddle face. This not only protects the paddle face, but also keeps the Poach Advantage smooth, aerodynamic, and simple to swing.
The center of the Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle is also new. The Engage Poach Advantage is a tool when it comes to playing power shots and offensive shots at the net, thanks to its proprietary polymer composite center that fits with the paddle face. The Engage Poach Advantage key features Engage’s Variable Release Technology, which keeps the ball on the paddle when swinging slowly.
Furthermore, the rubber in the paddle’s core has been chemically altered during the production process to improve playability. The chemical adjustment has not only made the heart of the paddle black, but it also manages to give you a soft feel when hitting the pickleball – Engage calls this technology Control Pro ‘Black’ Technology.
You’ll love the Poach Advantage if you’re looking for an elite-level pickleball paddle with excellent balance, speed, and control.
Dimensions & Weight
The Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle weighs 7.5–8.3 ounces and is a medium-weight paddle. In addition, the Poach Advantage’s paddle face is elongated, extending the paddle’s full length to 16 inches. This extra paddle length allows you more leverage and space around the net when smashing the pickleball hard.
The Poach Advantage’s paddle face is 8 inches high, providing a large hitting zone and sweet spot to help you put your shots down. The Poach Advantage has a goal softly written on the paddle face, telling you just where you need to connect with the pickleball to catch the next winner, for those of you who also want to play with a pickleball paddle that looks amazing.
Handle & Grip
The 5′′ paddle handle on the Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle is ideal for tennis converts or those who want a longer paddle for two-handed backhands. Engage’s Ultra Perforated Cushion Grip is also included with the Poach Advantage.
The perforated surface of the handle wicks moisture and sweat away from your hands during match play, while the cushioning makes you comfortable on the court. Like the rest of the Engage Poach Advantage Pickleball Paddle, the paddle grip is of the highest consistency and will not let you down.
