If you liked the top-selling pickleball paddle, the GAMMA Needle, then you will love the GAMMA COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle. Built to enhance the touch, control, and power that the GAMMA NEEDLE became know for, the GAMMA COMPASS provides you with an extra inch in length, as well as an enhanced and well-balanced sweet spot. Maintaining a medium paddle weight (7.75 ounces), as well as GAMMA’s brand new NeuCore technology, the GAMMA COMPASS is built to take your pickleball game to the next level. Later in our GAMME COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle review, we will dive into the details of this epic pickleball paddle, but let’s start with some stand-out features. Firstly, the COMPASS has a 25% thicker large cell paddle core that provides a smooth, consistent touch when striking the pickleball. And on top of that, the cells built into the paddle’s core have been enlarged to provide great predictability when playing power shots from the back of the court. Not only this, but the GAMMA COMPASS features a textured graphite hitting surface, that is brilliant at applying spin and swerve to the pickleball.
Check out our detailed GAMMA COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle review to find out everything you need to know about the GAMMA COMPASS before you buy.
Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The GAMME COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle face features a textured graphite hitting surface that is built to enhance the control in your game. The graphite paddle face provides a responsive feel when striking the pickleball, ensuring that you get that feeling of paddle ‘pop’ when you attack the ball to put away a winning shot. Likewise, the textured paddle surface allows you to play with enhanced spin when you’re smashing the pickleball from the back of the court, or when you’re playing with finesse at the net. The GAMMA COMPASS is protected by a durable edge guard which also works to reduce vibration and shock in the pickleball paddle when striking the pickleball or blocking hard shots.
The GAMMA COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle features GAMMA’s brand-new NeuCore technology. GAMMA NeuCore paddles have a 25% thicker polymer core that is brilliant at adding power and control to your game. From the back of the court, the increased thickness adds more power to your shots, while it also acts great when playing defensive shots at the net. GAMMA’s NeuCore technology also features larger cells in the core of the paddle which provide greater touch and control when striking the pickleball. The objective for GAMMA was to ensure that players received a predictable response when hitting the pickleball so that you feel more confident in playing with your instinct. There is nothing worse than changing the natural rhythm of your game because you fear a varying reaction from your paddle – thankfully, GAMMA’s NeuCore technology puts an end to that worry.
Dimensions & Weight
The GAMMA COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle weighs 7.75 ounces, making it a middleweight paddle. Despite this, the GAMMA COMPASS is built with an elongated paddle shape that measures 16 5/8″ in length, and 7 1/8″ across the paddle face. This elongated design builds on the success of the GAMMA Needle, which gives you a paddle with awesome reach and leverage. Whenever you are hitting the pickleball with power from the back of the court, elongated paddle shapes give you more leverage and whip on the pickleball to produce greater power. Likewise, when playing around the net, elongated paddles have a longer reach giving you more chances to make tricky returns – the GAMMA COMPASS excels in both areas.
Handle & Grip
The GAMMA COMPASS NeuCore Pickleball Paddle has a 4.75″ grip length which is a little shorter than other elongated paddles like the Selkirk INVIKTA. However, the handle length still gives you plenty of space to play one or two-handed shots, and also free’s up more space on the paddle face for GAMMA’s large sweet-spot. On top of this, the COMPASS features GAMMA’s Honeycomb Grip that is extra tacky with a firm surface. GAMMA provides some of the best pickleball grips in the business, and the GAMMA Honeycomb grip makes no exceptions. The high tackiness of the grip helps draw moisture away from your palm, while the high amounts of traction in the grip give you more control and feedback – this really is a top benefit for anyone considering the GAMMA COMPASS.
