Prokennex Kinetic Ovation Speed Pickleball Paddle

(14 reviews) Write a Review

We are shapeshifting the science of better performance with the OVATION SPEED.

With the new Ovation Speed, Pro Kennex engineers have applied the physics of shape design to elevate paddle performance with an expanded sweet spot and a more efficient energy transfer. The new modified oval shape creates one of nature's strongest designs, bringing a higher percentage of paddle mass along the center axis. Players looking for a competitive advantage in their equipment will immediately notice an increase in paddle maneuverability and speed.

At the foundation of this high performance package is our new Opti-Cell Core construction, which is indispensable to high performance level achieved in the new Ovation Shape design. Integrated together, they deliver an exceedingly plush ball strike, allowing you to maneuver your shot with confidence.

To finish off this masterful performance package is our proprietary 7 Layer, Complex Carbon face with its Spin-Grab outer layer surface.

And, of course, our world famous Kinetic technology which is integrated into the perimeter of the paddle for unparalleled arm protection and extended dwell time. All verified by independent labs and Koln University, in Germany.

    So far so good! I have only had the paddle for a couple of days. It response very well and gives me the peer I need without hurting my shoulder.

    I have extreme elbow issues. Already used the ProKennex paddle, but when I saw this new rounded head size, had to have it.! It improved my game 12-15%. Seriously. Same awesome reduced impact...can't play without it.

    I have had the paddle for 1 week. It is everything that it purports to be... I like it.

    Ovation is perfection

    Incredible paddle. Perfect for the soft game and more than enough punch to put it away. Reset balls are much easier and blocking is great.

    Ovation Speed

    Don't like small grip, really have to hit it in the sweet spot so not so effective for me dinking on the net. I must be on the low end of the weight range, I play with a 8.1 oz and this seems nowhere near close. Sorry I spent so much on this paddle, used for 3 hours and it has a permanent place in my bag. Just doesn't have "the feel" for me. Obviously I should have found one and tried it first, hopefully can sell it.

    Feel the integrated micro beads!

    Posted by Andy on Aug 13th 2019

    To feel the shift in the matrix inside the paddle is immediately convincing of the hidden internal technology!

    Love it!

    I have been suffering from "pickleball elbow" since I started playing (about a year now). This paddle has really helped relieve my tendon pain when I play (and after). The touch and feel that you get with this paddle is amazing- my placement and accuracy has markedly improved.
