The Poach Icon pickleball paddle debuted at the 2018 Nationals tournament. This Engage pickleball racket combines the advanced black polymer core of the Poach Advantage with the proprietary chemically bonded skin of the Elite Pro. By combining these two aspects in the same paddle, you get a pickleball paddle that is extremely soft and provides utlimate control with a more firm solid hitting surface and a really large sweet spot. The chemically bonded skin from the Elite Pro has the roughest hitting surface of any paddle giving you extreme ability to affect spin on the ball.
The Poach Icon is the paddle choice for Brian Staub, one of the top Senior men players in the world.
This paddle is the perfect combination of soft feel with a solid hitting surface and texture. Both a Mid-weight and now light-weight version is available. The Poach Icon is the same size as the Poach Advantage and the Elite Pro, 16 inches long, by 8 inches wide, with a 5 inch grip length, and comes in 3 great colors.
