The Apprentice is a full size polymer paddle, with the same high-end trim and grip found on premium level paddles. The paddles have a soft skin and provides plenty of power, feel and control.
The only other paddles in this price range are wooden paddles, which don't give the true Pickleball experience (plus they are very heavy). The NEW Apprentice weighs only 7.1 - 7.6 oz. Can be ordered with a standard 4 1/4" grip circumference or smaller 4" grip circumference (great for juniors and individuals with smaller hands).
The NEW Apprentice is Engage's way to give back to the Pickleball community and to help grow this great sport. These paddles are made in the USA in the same factory as all Engage paddles.Paddle Specifications:
