The GAMMA SHARD NeuCore Pickleball Paddle is the shorter, but just as punchy brother paddle to the GAMMA COMPASS. The GAMMA SHARD features GAMMA’s NeuCore pickleball paddle core that is 25% thicker than previous GAMMA paddle cores and built for consistent touch and power on-court. What’s more, the SHARD paddle face is constructed from graphite and features a textured hitting surface that enhances spin and ball-roll when striking the pickleball from the back of the court. The GAMMA SHARD NeuCore Pickleball Paddle is available in two epic colors, pink and yellow and also features GAMMA’s top-of-the-range Honeycomb Cushion Grip which many regard as one of the best pickleball grips out there. Side to this, the GAMMA ShARD paddle dimensions match up to some of the best paddles in the game, like the AMPED S2 and the Onix Z5. The SHARD measures 15 7/8″ long and has a wide 8″ paddle face that includes an oversized sweet-spot. Not only does this further enhance your control when playing with the GAMMA SHARD, but the paddle produces extremely consistent ball-striking ability, alongside touch and feel out on-court.
Check out our GAMMA SHARD NeuCore Pickleball Paddle review to find out everything you need to know about the GAMMA SHARD before you buy. One thing is for sure, if you are looking for a brilliant all-round paddle that is powerful and controlled, you will love the GAMMA SHARD.
Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The GAMMA SHARD NeuCore Pickleball Paddle has a textured graphite paddle surface that is built to give you paddle ‘pop’ and control. The textured paddle surface effortlessly applies spin and ball-roll when playing topspin shots, while the graphite paddle surface pings balls back at your opponent at lighting speeds. Available in two epic color schemes, the GAMMA SHARD looks great in either yellow or pink, and the graphite paddle face is protected by GAMMA‘s low-profile edge guard. Not only does the edge guard keep the SHARD protected against miss-hits, but it is aerodynamic, ensuring you can swing fast from the back of the court.
The GAMMA SHARD NeuCore Pickleball Paddle core features GAMMA’s all-new NeuCore technology. The NueCore tech from GAMMA features a 25% thicker polymer which gives you more power on-court, while the core cells have also been enlarged to give better vibration control properties. In fact, the GAMMA NeuCore tech gives you more power, and better ability to disperse shock throughout the paddle to create a much more consistent feel when striking the pickleball. Not only this but the reduced shock in the paddle ensures that the paddle naturally fights the effects of tennis elbow providing a much smoother all-round game.
Dimensions & Weight
The GAMMA SHARD NeuCore Pickleball Paddle weighs 7.75 ounces, making the SHARD a heavier middleweight pickleball paddle. The SHARD measures 15 7/8″ long making it a nicely proportioned paddle, while the 8″ wide paddle face gives you a nice wide-bodied hitting surface that is great at controlling any type of pickleball shot thrown at you. If you are someone who prefers a well proportioned and balanced paddle then you will love the paddle dimensions on the GAMMA SHARD. In addition, the slightly increased paddle weight gives you the power you need to hit winners anywhere on-court.
Handle & Grip
The GAMMA SHARD Pickleball Paddle handle measures 4.75″ long and has a grip circumference of 4 1/8″ – making the SHARD a comfortable pickleball paddle to handle on-court. The grip is slightly shorter than other pickleball paddles in the same category (most measured 5″) but the change is not drastic enough for it to be that noticeable. What’s more, if you are someone who likes to place a finger or thumb on the pickleball paddle surface, then the shorter grip allows you to do this better than other paddles with a 5″ handle. The GAMMA SHARD handle is wrapped in GAMMA’s Honeycomb Grip which is renowned for being one of the best pickleball grips on the market. The grip provides maximum traction for a firm hold, and provides loads of feedback when striking the pickleball. The grip also features a perforated honeycomb surface that is great at drawing moisture away from your palm.
