Excellent paddle with a lot of control

by Andrea| 7/9/2020 9:02 pm

I love the Shard! The weight of the paddle is not too heavy and not too light. The graphite surface of the Shard allows me to have better feel and control of the ball during dinking rallies and when hitting 3rd drop shots, yet powerful and accurate during a volley exchange at the net.

Best balance of power and control in the GAMMA lineup

I have been playing with the Shard for about a year and absolutely love it. I thought GAMMA couldn't improve much upon the prior RZR paddle I was using but boy was I wrong! This paddle kept the great feel that the RZR had but added even more power. My only concern was that the rims would sometimes come loose but I know that they have worked on fixing that. Love my GAMMA!!

Amazing touch

To me, this paddle is all about the touch! I have a lot of power in my game, so softening the ball has always been a challenge. This shard is PERFECT for those looking to add a little touch on those third shots, dinks, and resets. It still has the pop and power needed to those high balls away!

Love This Paddle!

I absolutely love this paddle - it has great touch and love putting my own power but this paddle gives it control. Dinks feels great with the controlled power to put it away. I love how this paddle feels and how it complements my game. Must have for any player who wants to step up their game!

The perfect all around paddle!

My favorite paddle for several reasons: A nice sweet spot allows me reset the ball easily. The weight is light enough to keep my hands fast yet not give up any power. The feel allows for good dinking and 3rds. This paddle has it all!

Great paddle!

I love my Shard...I started playing January 2021, and it was the first paddle my instructor recommended based on my stroke! I've tried several others, from both Gamma, as well as a few other companies, and I can't find anything that beats the weight, balance, and combination of touch and power that my Shard has. i also like the textured face that allows me to add some crazy spin to the ball. Since I've been playing it, about 15 of my friends have ordered one as's not uncommon for a doubles match to include 4 Shard paddles in my neighborhood, and from some VERY solid players as well. I also enjoy the Hellbender for inside play, as it feels a bit lighter, but has a higher sweetspot for topspin, but if i have to choose one's the Shard! Now that I have been accepted as a Gamma Ambassador and have Pickleball students I have lessons with, I know which paddle(s) I will be suggesting!
