The Encore LITE was specially designed to maximize quickness (re-action time) and surface roughness (spin). Based on USAPA guidelines, the Encore LITE hits the limits on 'surface roughness'. Meaning no paddle can ever have more. By only being in the 6.9 - 7.3 oz range, you now have the reaction-time (quickness) to surprise your opponent with that quick 'spin' shot.
The engineering 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.
What's even more surprising. The legacy Encore 'sweet spot' is one of the largest of all paddles, and the Encore LITE was specially designed in such a way to maintain that characteristic.
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.
