The Gamma Needle was the first elongated blade that GAMMA brought to the market. By extending the length of the paddle, the player (you) is able 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!
