GRUVN's THE LAUNCH-C is a high-quality mid-weight composite pickleball paddle that is approved by USA Pickleball (USAPA) for tournament play with a fiberglass face and paddle weight of ~7.75 ounces. It has a traditional widebody paddle shape with a long handle and a large surface area and has a stunning spiral design. This paddle has an incredible combination of touch, feel, and strength. It has terrific balance with its longer handle that makes for great two-handed swings and extended reaches across the court, and it has a perfectly proportioned hitting area with a large sweet spot. The paddle surface is excellent for spin techniques and ball control and the Launch-C is a fantastic paddle for all levels of pickleball players.
The polypropylene honeycomb core paddles absorb vibration and noise. Many facilities and clubs ban loud paddles that include other core materials, so the Launch-C is perfect for people who play in residential communities and in clubs and facilities that require quieter paddles. Polypropylene is the most popular core among pickleball players.
Composite paddles provide additional power and have the best textured surface ideal for spin while enhancing control. It tends to concentrate the energy of the ball on a paddle core, providing more "pop". Composite pickleball paddles are becoming more and more popular every year as they have a comfortable mix of power and control. The Launch-C’s paddle surface has a textured UV sandpaper oil coating, adding a rough texture that helps with spin shots and increased control.
The Stitched Perforated Cushion Grip is made of PU (polyurethane) leather with keel sewing thread. It is a very comfortable cushion grip, and perforated sweat absorbent.
This paddle also comes with a zippered neoprene cover with the GRÜVN logo to protect the pickleball paddle when not in play ($15 value!).
