Needle Elongated Premium Poly Core Paddle



With the Needle, GAMMA advances into the elongated blade paddle market. Extending the length of the paddle enables you, the player, to reach shots that were once unreachable, while sacrificing less than an inch of width. Engineered so the weight and sweet spot still exist in the center of the paddle (instead of being top-heavy), the Needle is perfect for players looking for balance and control in their play.

Sensa Poly Core technology provides touch and enables dink shots to be hit at sharp angles while maintaining control. The textured graphite face enhances ball bite and promoting perfect placement from the baseline. The Needle becomes a dynamic extension of your body with the signature GAMMA Honeycomb Cushion Grip. Put your opponent on pins and needles when they see you step on the court!I love the fact that it is a control paddle. This means that I can really hit sharp hard angles with my dinks.

Actual feedback from Needle testers:

I love the fact that it is a control paddle. This means that I can really hit sharp hard angles with my dinks.

The weight distribution feels great! Doesn’t feel too top heavy at all.

This is one of the first long paddles I have hit that feels like the sweet spot is in the middle of the paddle, Most of the other long paddles feel like the sweet spot is high up on the top.

GAMMA Honeycomb Grip

The GAMMA Honeycomb Grip features an extra tacky and firm surface. This provides high traction for maximum grip feedback and control. The perforated honeycomb surface absorbs moisture to provide a sure firm grip.

    Brand new Needle Paddle & the grip is falling apart - hmmmm

    I received my Needle Paddle and was very disappointed to see the grip had come loose on the end of the racquet, and wouldn't even stick down again. A brand new paddle and it's already falling apart. Not impressed Gamma - hope you will rectify it -- it is a $130 paddle but I am from New Zealand so for me it is $170 (NZ dollars) worth of Paddle which makes it even worse - I will change this review if the company will do something about it - we will wait & see --

    No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.

    Needle is great!

    If you like long paddles, you will love, if you have not tried a long paddle try it! Great combo of length and width all in a paddle with great touch!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
