Released as part of the hotly anticipated NeuCore range, the GAMMA LEGEND features an 8” wide paddle face, 25% thicker polypropylene core and a composite fiberglass paddle face that combine to make the GAMMA LEGEND a great paddle to play with. The 25% thicker polypropylene core makes the LEGEND 8.1 ounces in weight which puts the paddle on the heavier side of the middleweight paddle category, while the fiberglass paddle face provides epic paddle ‘pop’ on-court.
The stand-out features of the GAMMA LEGEND pickleball paddle are the effortless combination of power and touch built into the paddle. Whether you are smashing the pickleball from the back of the court or blocking an opponent shot at the net, the paddle provides you with a consistent, smooth and confident touch. Side to this, the fiberglass paddle face allows you to quickly turn defense into attack with a super-responsive touch and feel.
We will dive deeper into the benefits of the LEGEND paddle throughout our GAMMA LEGEND NeuCore Pickleball Paddle review but if you are looking for a top-of-the-range paddle, that is well proportioned and built to provide power, touch and paddle ‘pop’ then you will love the GAMMA LEGEND.
Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The GAMMA LEGEND Pickleball Paddle face is made from textured fiberglass similar to all the other paddles in the NeuCore range. The fiberglass paddle face provides a responsive feel when striking the pickleball, but equally gives you a surface that can provide a soft and delicate touch when playing intricate shots around the net. That fact that the fiberglass paddle face combines with the LEGEND’s NeuCore technology also helps to really set the paddle apart from others in the same category. The fiberglass face gives you predictable touch when striking the pickleball from the back of the court or when smashing the pickleball overhead, while the core of the paddle gives you the power needed to put opponents away with ease.
The GAMMA LEGEND NeuCore Pickleball Paddle features GAMMA’s NeuCore paddle technology. GAMMA NeuCore is made from a thick polypropylene paddle core that is 25% thicker than previous GAMMA paddles. What’s more, the paddle cells built into the core of the paddle are thicker than other pickleball paddles, ensuring that shock, sound and other vibrations that can lead to tennis elbow are muted. What’s more, the NeuCore tech helps to create a super smooth and controlled feel when striking and blocking the pickleball. The NeuCore tech at the heart of the GAMMA LEGEND helps to really set the paddle apart.
Dimensions & Weight
The GAMMA LEGEND NeuCore Pickleball Paddle weighs 8.1 ounces which gives you plenty of weight to hit powerful, controlled shots that will win you more points. The LEGEND measures 15 7/8” long and has an 8” wide paddle face that gives you plenty of surface area on the paddle. Not only is the GAMMA LEGEND a beautifully balanced pickleball paddle, but the paddle face features an oversized sweet-spot and the thick polypropylene core ensures that off-center hits remain controlled.
Handle & Grip

What’s more, the handle is wrapped with GAMMA’s Honeycomb Grip which is widely considered to be one of the best pickleball grips on the market. The Honeycomb Grip features an extra tacky surface which gives you a firm hold over the paddle, while the cushioning and perforated surface draws moisture away from your palm while providing a comfortable hold.
