Won gold with 206. Excellent feel and control

206 is a dream paddle come true!

by Stuart - | 12/26/2021 11:26 pm

Love my 206 paddle - has already improved my game significantly. It is very balanced in regard to power without any loss of control. Riley and Gamma designed the perfect combination of bigger paddle face area - creating a larger sweet spot - and still a long enough handle to use a two handed grip when/if desired. My 3rd shot drops seem so much easier now, and my dinks are more controlled. I thought I would gradually transition from my prior paddle, but I find myself with the 206 in my hands every day now. I am an Orthopedic Surgeon, and I know how critical the best tools are to get a technical job done right - Riley Newman’s signature paddle is a real gem - My prescription is to get one before they sell out! - SCK MD

Best paddle for me

Glad I purchased my Riley Newman signature paddle on Christmas day as they are now sold out. This is my 6th paddle and by far my favorite. Used it today for the first time and it does make a difference. I am so excited to get to the next level with my new 206 paddle. Thank you Gamma and Riley Newman.

Get yourself a 206!

Received my paddle as a Christmas gift! I absolutely love it! I was using the Gamma Legend paddle before the 206. Live the extended handle on the 206. Great weight and overall touch. Highly recommend!

Power& Control!!!

Great for control, resetting the ball. Power to put away shots. Love the long handle to reach out for wide balls, great for dinking as well.

I am so glad I ordered my Riley Newman 206 signature paddle early Christmas Day. I played with it for the first time yesterday. I have 5 other paddles and this by far is my favorite. I am excited to see if it takes me to the next level.

Great paddle!

Great blend of power, control, and touch. Great paddle.

The Real Deal!

by Bob - | 1/9/2022 12:03 am

This paddle is the best I have ever played with. I’ve played with some of the top pro signature paddles out there. This is the best. Power, touch, spin control…. Coupled with best stock grip. This paddle is the real deal. Just like Riley Newman!!!!

Best paddle with the best grip

by Snydes - | 1/12/2022 5:41 pm

Hands down the best paddle I have used. A combination of power and control that is unsurpassed . Combined with a Gamma stitched contour grip, you will be one with the paddle and can focus on your fine points.

Excellent paddle with great feel,touch, and plenty of power for the put away shots. Great for resets and getting back to the kitchen if you get pushed back. Highly recommend this paddle!

Great Paddle

by Gale - | 3/8/2022 2:49 pm

I am loving my new paddle. I'm not the strongest player but this paddle gives me more strength and more accuracy. Very glad that I bought it. Thanks Riley.

Great handle and grip.

by DONALD - | 3/10/2022 2:16 pm

The extra length of the handle is just what I need. This paddle has pop and control. I spin the ball better with this paddle than any other paddle I have used.

Riley's 206 is my new go to paddle!

by Matt - | 3/31/2022 10:18 am

Loving the 206! I have been a graphite face guy for years, from the RZR, Needle, Compass, Hellbender and 505, but I really like the 206! It is a great all around paddle, plenty of pop, but soft enough also to play with touch. I was shocked that I liked this paddle so much, but it is my go to paddle now! I still love my Hellbender, but the 206 is working well for me now!

Look out bangers ... this paddle is not your friend

by Steve - | 4/25/2022 8:02 am

by far the best paddle I've ever had. the grip is perfect for me and the paddle has a nice soft touch without loosing power. I can consistently reset a point when people are driving the ball. It's added a whole new dimension to my game.

Newbie Senior Players Review

by StevL| 6/25/2022 11:00 am

I'm new to pickleball (two months now, play three times a week, used several different paddles) and I love the finesse dink shots I'm able to hit with this paddle. Mine came in at 7.7 ounce, the light/mid weight allows me to better maneuver around and in the kitchen and seems easy on the elbow with its thicker core. The long handle I found to be a plus and the grip is simple awesome. I would not say it has "explosive power", I think it suits a softer feel type of player. I'm playing "better" players where touch and feel seem to be much more important IMO.

My game is sick with 206

by PB Ruben| 9/3/2022 10:30 am

I met Riley Newman in his Raleigh clinic. He let me try his paddle and I could not believe how intuitive it was to the style of game I wanted to play. I had trouble using my old paddle when it came to the soft game. With the 206 my soft game excelled and hitting resets is almost automatic when an opponent hits a transition zone smash at me. My game certainly elevated because the 206 reacts and responds the way I need my paddle to be. It's built for the type of game Riley taught me and I play my 1st tournament Sept 2022 as 3.5 but I can't wait to play him in a doubles tournament in 2023. I am getting me another 206 because I drill every day so one paddle for drills and the other for tour games. Keeping my eye on the prize with 206 by my side!

Great birthday gift to me from me!!

by Vernie| 11/6/2022 7:37 pm

I LOVE it! I thought the extended handle would be a problem but it isn’t at all. My PB friends have told me that my new paddle has improved my game??? I’m so glad I bought it for my self for my birthday!!
