Prokennex is shapeshifting the science of better performance with the OVATION SPEED II. This paddle is the exact same paddle as their amazing original Ovation Speed with an updated edge guard and new paint job!
With the new Ovation Speed, Pro Kennex engineers have applied the physics of shape design to elevate paddle performance with an expanded sweet spot and a more efficient energy transfer. The new modified oval shape creates one of nature's strongest designs, bringing a higher percentage of paddle mass along the center axis. Players looking for a competitive advantage in their equipment will immediately notice an increase in paddle maneuverability and speed.
At the foundation of this high performance package is the new Opti-Cell Core construction, which is indispensable to high performance level achieved in the new Ovation Shape design. Integrated together, they deliver an exceedingly plush ball strike, allowing you to maneuver your shot with confidence.
To finish off this masterful performance package is a proprietary 7 Layer, Complex Carbon face with its Spin-Grab outer layer surface. And, of course, the world famous Kinetic technology which is integrated into the perimeter of the paddle for unparalleled arm protection and extended dwell time. All verified by independent labs and Koln University, in Germany.
The paddle also comes with our new replaceable Air-O-Guard bumper system and a fresh new paint job!

**ProKennex's manufacturing process produces the least amount of variance in the industry. The majority of companies produce their paddles and then weigh what has been produced: Their studies have found that paddles significantly below the 8oz threshold deliver unnecessary shock to the arm, while paddles significantly above the 8oz threshold, while more arm protective, become too cumbersome to move quickly. Their weight range exists in this middle sweet spot. They have done your homework for you.
