Selected as the Official 2018 Texas Open Tournament Paddle (awarded to the Gold Medalist). Due to the success and hype of the paddle, the Trident was selected again as the official paddle of the 2019 Texas Open.
The Trident debuts Engage's new 5-layer GripTEK skin. Optimized for ultimate feel, control, ball placement and spin. An extremely solid feeling paddle with a larger 'sweet spot' than other paddles.
The NEW GripTEK skin is an innovation created and designed by Engage. The skin hits the USAPA limits on roughness and won't wear away over time. It's evenly distributed across the entire paddle face for an even and balanced reaction to your point of contact with the ball.
The 5-layer skin works together with the 'Control Pro 3' core, designed so the 'skin' and 'core' act as one for the control you need to place the ball by your opponent. The paddle has plenty of power to put the ball away too when needed, but control, feel and spin are the main focus of the paddle with being extremely balanced for quick reaction and maneuverability.
The engineering of the Trident maximizes the amount of time the ball stays on the paddle (a concept originally developed by Engage), enabling the soft feel to command the soft (net) game.
The 'Trident' is the only paddle with GripTek™ Technology.

USAPA Listed and Approved
The Engage Encore line of paddles was specially designed to maximize deflection (power) and surface roughness (spin). Based on USAPA guidelines, the Encore hits both limits, which means no paddle can ever have more of either. The design of the Encore goes even further by maximizing the amount of time the ball stays on the paddle, enabling the soft feel you need to command the soft (net) game.
