GRUVN’s THE GRIPPER-G is a high-quality mid-weight graphite pickleball paddle that is approved by USA Pickleball (USAPA) for tournament play. It has a traditional widebody paddle shape with a 4.75” long handle and a large surface area and has multiple eye-catching designs to choose from. This paddle has the ideal blend of power, outstanding touch and ball control. It has terrific balance and a perfectly proportioned hitting area with a large sweet spot, giving you better chances of hitting winning shots and controlling the ball, playing spin, dinks, and harder smash shots. This is a very versatile, all-around paddle that is great for experienced pickleball players who want to achieve precision control, as well as for beginners who want a high-quality, standard widebody paddle to gain experience with.
The polypropylene honeycomb core paddles absorb vibration and noise. Many facilities and clubs ban loud paddles that include other core materials, so the Gripper-G 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.
The graphite surface is very thin yet durable and powerful. Most competitive players prefer to use graphite paddles as they allow players to make use of their finesse and can be very technical. The Gripper-G’s paddle surface has a textured UV sandpaper oil coating, adding a rough texture that helps with spin shots and increased control.
The 3D perforated cushion grip is made of double-layer two-color hand grips. The inner layer is made of sweat-absorbing sponge and the outer layer is made of PU material and uses big air hole design. The grip is very comfortable and the anti-slip and sweat-absorbing effect is of the highest quality.
(The photos show two different grips: the 3D Perforated Cushion Grip (main photo) and the Stitched Perforated Cushion Grip. We are currently only selling the 3D grip for this model.)
This paddle also comes with a zippered neoprene cover with the GRÜVN logo to protect the pickleball paddle when not in play ($15 value!).
