The brand new Engage Elite Pro X-Series Pickleball Paddle is the upgraded version of the Engage Elite Pro. The Elite Pro is used by top pro-players like Steve Kennedy to win National Championships. When talking about his own signature version of the Elite Pro paddle. Steve says;
“The power, crisp feel and responsiveness of the Elite Pro ‘Line of Paddle’ gives me the confidence to raise my game to the next level”.
And we have absolutely no doubt that the Elite Pro X-Series will do the same thing for you.
The Engage Elite Pro X-Series Pickleball Paddle takes the reigns from the Elite Pro as one of the most popular pickleball paddles on the market. Available in red and white colorways, the Elite Pro X-Series provides great balance on-court, as well as the maneuverability and control you need to put away winning shots. Featuring a reduced center of gravity, the Elite Pro X-Series still has the same amazing spin enhancing qualities, as well as the large sweet-spot that made the original Elite Pro Pickleball Paddle famous. On top of this, the Elite Pro 2nd Gen paddle features Engage’s Cutting-Edge Graphite Chemical Bond technology that maximizes forgiveness in the paddle face, for even more enhanced spin and control. What’s more, the Elite Pro paddle includes Engage’s ControlPro II Polymer core with Vibration Control Technology.

Paddle Face & Edge Guard
If you are someone who loves graphite pickleball paddles, then you will love the Elite Pro X-Series Pickleball Paddle. The brand new Elite Pro paddle features Engage’s new skin technology called ‘Liquid Graphite’. The Liquid Graphite skin has been chemically bonded to provide maximum forgiveness when playing shots. What’s more, the Elite Pro X-Series retains its spin enhancing qualities that were made famous by the original Engage Elite Pro paddle. Something we also love about the Elite Pro X-Series is the Vibration Control Tech that has been built into the paddle face and core. There is a noticeable increase in control when striking the pickleball, as well as smoother contact whether you are hitting fast or slow.
The Elite Pro X-Series also comes complete with a 1/4″ overlapping edge guard which has been designed to protect the Elite Pro – making it more durable and long-lasting
The Elite X-Series Pickleball Paddle features Engage’s brand new ControlPro II Polymer core. The increased thickness gives you more power and reduces shock impact when blocking hard opponent shots. The Vibration Control Technology built into the Elite Pro also helps to disseminate shock throughout the paddle, particularly when you connect with an off-center hit. The result is a much more controlled paddled that provides smoother, more consistent ball-striking qualities. The other great thing about the Elite Pro X-Series is the oversized sweet-spot. Like the original Elite Pro, the oversized sweet-spot makes the Elite Pro X-Series extremely forgiving and ready to support your game.
Dimensions & Weight
The Engage Elite Pro X-Series Pickleball Paddle is forever versatile. Not only is the Elite Pro available as a medium weight paddle, but it is also available as a lightweight paddle. The medium weight paddle weighs between 7.8 – 8.3 ounces, whereas the lightweight (LITE) paddle weighs between 7.5 – 7.8 ounces. This gives you the option to pick the Elite Pro paddle weight that suits your game. While the LITE paddle is the lighter version, it still stacks up a bit heavier than other more traditional lightweight paddles, so don’t fear that you will lose out on too much power opting for this weight. Of course, if you are a power player then opt for the medium weight Elite Pro.
The Engage Elite Pro X-Series Pickleball Paddle measures 15.5″ long and has a wide-bodied paddle face that measures 8.125″ across. This makes the Elite Pro a beautifully proportioned pickleball paddle that provides reach and plenty of space on the paddle face to connect with winning shots
Handle & Grip
The Engage Elite Pro X-Series Pickleball Paddle has a 5″ tennis-like paddle handle that is perfect for tennis converts. The grip circumference is 4 1/4″ making the paddle comfortable to hold and grip for sustained periods. Likewise, the X-Series features Engage’s Perforated Cushion grip which is perfect for drawing moisture away from your palms. The perforated surface on the grip is naturally absorbent, and the cushioning built into the grip makes the grip comfortable to hold. If you like a handle that feels like a tennis racquet handle, that provides you with reach and control then you will have no problems with the Elite Pro X-Series.
