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.
