Advanced design innovations have made the Engage Poach Advantage Paddle a true game changer. Engage developed a hitting surface made up of six layers that is the same thickness as one or two layer surfaces. These six layers, inlaid at the optimum angle and sequence, produced the desired playability and ball responsiveness that Engage was shooting for. Vertical-alignment surface texturing enhances spin and meets the USAPA limit for surface roughness.
Engage took paddle development even further by changing the chemical attributes of the core. This resulted in a new black-colored polymer core that behaves differently at varying contact speeds, pocketing the ball longer when swinging slow for the most control, but maximizing deflection and power when you need to speed the ball past your opponents. With all the research and development Engage put into developing the Poach Advantage, it's no surprise that it became an instant player favorite.
