The Encore XL polymer pickleball paddle has the longest grip of any pickleball paddle on the market. At 16 3/4 inches long, it is one of the longest pickleball racquets on the market just shorter than the Blade style paddles.
These features give the Encore XL maximum power and spin allowed by USAPA guildelines. For former tennis players who are used to hitting a two-handed backhand, converting to pickleball and keeping that two-handed backhand is possible with this paddle. The handle length is an extended 6.25 inches long!
The extra length of the paddle, based on physics, will produce even more power and spin than the legacy Encore. And if that wasn't enough, the paddle flexes creating even more power and spin.
The Encore line of paddles has always been about control and ball placement. This new addition to the Encore family is no exception.
