We are shapeshifting the science of better performance with the OVATION SPEED. 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.

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 our 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 our proprietary 7 Layer, Complex Carbon face with its Spin-Grab outer layer surface.
And, of course, our 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.
Impregnated within each ProKennex paddle is the Kinetic System. Tungsten beads within the immovable chambers dampen and reduce shock and vibration keeping your arm safe. According to MIT Sports Dynamic Laboratory the "Vibration dampening ratio enhancement is 43%", "Power zone enlargement is about 12 to 15%" and "Shock reduction is better than 20%".
The Ovation speed is qualified for USAPA tournament play.
Disclaimer: Due to high-performance aerodynamic edgeless-construction, chipping and scratches occur during normal wear and tear. We advise using our training tapes that come included, wrapped with each paddle purchase.
My paddle came with tape. What is it for?
As soon as you get your new paddle, we highly recommend applying the included training tape right away. The two strips of tape we provide are to protect the upper edges of the paddle from court surface scratching. We recommend placing them in the 10 and 2 position along the edges on the paddle. If you need to redo your taping at a future point, any generic electrical tape works just fine.
It's important to note that cosmetic wear and tear on this paddle does not have negative effects on the playability of the paddle. Whereas most paddles become dysfunctional once edges get damaged, the Prokennex will endure with minimal change to play.
