*NEW* Havoc M3 & FREE PREMIUM PADDLE CASE
Chris Lambert (British Columbia, Canada)
Amazing paddle!

When I pre-order this paddle I didn’t know what to expect but I will say I was pleasantly surprised when I received it. It comes in a really great paddle cover and looks even better in person.

Playability of the paddle is fantastic. It took a couple games to get used to but once I got the feel for it, my game improved. It has a soft feel to it for good drops but I’m still able to generate a ton of power. As far as my spin goes… I have tried other edgeless paddles and the grit on the M3 out performs all of them by a mile. I highly recommend the M3 to any serious players.

Game Changing Paddle !!

I have used the Havoc M3 for about 20hrs now and Im amazed at the improvement in my short game, it really has made a difference. The service I received from Poach was first class and I highly recommend that anyone looking for PickleBall gear check them out.

Con-Unfortunately the paddle seems to slow reaction time making shot accuracy difficult on returns.
Pro-There is more power on drives, overhead and straight ahead push type shots.
Overall I have given the paddle good try and have gone back to using my old paddle for now. Not sure the new is completely right for me. Thank you Terri Mierke

Thank you, Frank, for recommending it!

Well balanced paddle

This paddle has power and control. Before this I was playing with the Podium control and absolutely loved it. It took me a while to get the feel of the M3 paddle because it has more pop than the Podium and it has a less plushy feel. I am a soft game player and needed more power because the game has evolved so much and more power I got. I waited for the second batch of M3s and the surface is very different from the first batch of paddles…like something I’ve never seen before! I strongly recommend buying the Poach edge guard tape as it is great quality and enhances the beauty and the protection of your paddle. I tried a paddle from a leading brand that was 100$ more expensive and found that the M3 had as much control but more power. On top of all this, the paddle has incredible swing weight. It cuts through the air and doesn’t feel heavy. All in all, this is a great paddle. Thank you for making great paddles at affordable prices 😉

What a great paddle!

Although I am fairly new, this is the most control I have ever seen in a pickleball paddle!

Carbon Fibre Paddle Eraser
Randel Patten (Arizona, United States)
Removes scuff and marks

I like the eraser and use it on my old paddle. It removed some of the marks and scuffs form day to day play. I wish it had some kind of finger grips so that it was easier to hold onto. A dimple on the side for your fingers would help to secure it while using it.
Thank you

Budget friendly, Great Paddle

This is a great paddle for the 2.0-3.0 player. It has a nice texture to it, a fiberglass face, and allows for spin. For the budget conscious, this is a winner! You can't go wrong starting with this paddle

Perfect Beginner Level Paddle

As a coach, I have recommended this paddle to a number of my beginning students. Some come to class with a paddle they purchased at a local box store and they are so slick! This paddle has a great texture on it, allowing the ball to hang on the face a little longer, allowing them better control. And it doesn't break the bank!

Awesome Paddle

If you are looking for an edgeless paddle, this is a 5 star! It has a great pop to it, the texture is perfect allowing for great spin. The power and control both are in this paddle. Love that I made the switch to the M3!

Love the fit and feel of this shirt! It is lightweight, has a great soft texture and has held up well after many washings. I am 5'6 (female) and the small fits great. A much better quality than some of the other "Dri Fit" I own!

Great Paddle Choice

This is an excellent paddle for a novice to advanced player! It has a great feel and texture to it and plays very well. With the shorter grip but longer face you can easily reach shorter shots! The colors are great!

Poach podium 2.0 paddle

Enjoying games with my new paddle. Plenty of power in ground strokes so especially good for singles.
Very friendly and efficient service provided by Poach. Paddle arrived much sooner than expected.
Less expensive to purchase directly from Poach than from retailer dealing with multiple paddle and racquet makes here in the uk including cost of shipping.
Great service and great product.
Thank you all at Poach

Havoc Control & FREE PADDLE COVER
Randel Patten (Arizona, United States)
Soft touch from a paddle change

My game was mostly hard hits and ball placement but very weak at the No Volley Zone. No matter how much I tried and read about the soft game, I had a hard time developing it. Then I tried the Havoc Control paddle from Poach. That was the best change I could have made to the soft game. The paddle seems to soften the balls and has given me much more touch at the NVZ than ever before. I had to conscientiously push the ball for the placement and hard hit game, but that was little change to add the soft game to repertoire. I recommend the paddle to those that notice the change in my game. Much more rounded player.
Thank you Poach for demoing the paddle at our facility.

Protect Your Paddle

Use Poach’s edge guard and NOT electrical tape. More protective and more compatible with maintaining the edge guard.
