The 'Tear Drop' design moves the 'sweet spot' and 'balance' of the paddle closer to the top of the paddle, producing more 'Kinetic Energy' so the paddle rolls over the ball faster producing even more SPIN and Power. The design also decreases the paddle mass near the handle producing a lighter paddle which enhances that effect.
What does all this mean? It means the Encore which was the first and only paddle specially designed to maximize deflection (power) and surface roughness (spin), based on USAPA guidelines, produces even more of both.
The design of the Encore goes further, by maximizing the amount of time the ball stays on the paddle (a concept originally developed by EngagePickleball), enabling the soft feel you need to command the soft (net) game.
The Encore line of paddles have always been about 'control' and 'ball placement', and having the perfect paddle to do just that (what you want with the ball) whether you hit 'hard' or 'soft'.
Only the 'Encore' line of paddles. We call it ControlPro™ Technology.
