The NEW Encore 'XL' takes one of the 'best selling' paddles on the market, the ‘Encore’, and extends the grip to an amazing 6 ¼ inches long, which extends the entire paddle to 16 ¼ inches long. What does this mean? The ability to use a two-handed backhand (if you want), extra reach to hit those shots that use to be just out of reach…plus the ability to produce more Spin and Power.
The ‘XL’ takes grip length to a whole new level by making the longest grip of any paddle on the market. At the same time extending the entire paddle to 16 ¼ inches long making it one of the longest paddles on the market (just behind the Blade style paddles).
What do you have? The paddle with the maximum deflection (power) and surface roughness (spin) based on USAPA guidelines, the ability to hit a two-handed backhand if you want (with both hands completely on the paddle) and the ability to reach those shots you couldn’t before. Forgot to mention! That extra length in the paddle, based on Physics will produce even more power and spin than the legacy Encore. Let’s not stop there. The paddle flexes. Creating even more power and spin on top of that.
The Encore line of paddles have always been about 'control' and 'ball placement', and having the perfect paddle to do just that (what you want with the ball) whether you hit 'hard' or 'soft', with their proprietary ControlPro™ Technology.
