I’ve tried them all! Engage, Head, Electrum, Prokennex, and many others with Engage always being my go- to paddle, until now. I was unsure about the short grip on the ProXR but with the 30 day return I just had to try it. This is hands down the most comfortable paddle I have ever played with. Great control and reach with just the right amount of power to put the ball away. And best of all is the dove-tail grip that helps with accuracy.
