(Includes paddle cleaner & paddle cover)
GRUVN's RAW-13V is a high-quality, mid-weight pickleball paddle featuring a premium T700 raw carbon fiber surface and is approved by USA Pickleball (USAPA) for tournament play. The 'V' is for the Roman Numeral 5, as the handle length is just under 5" long (4.75"). Raw carbon fiber paddles provide a grainy textured surface that allows for a lot of spin and enhances control. It has a traditional widebody paddle shape with a large surface area. The combination of this paddle’s raw surface and the 13mm core results in a strong, stable paddle with consistent and accurate shots and great control.
The RAW-13V has a weight of ~7.8 ounces to provide stability and balance for all aspects of the game, including plays at the net and returning hard shots. 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. It has a 4.75” long handle and the grip size of 4.25" is thinner than that of the 16mm paddles, making it a great option for players who have smaller hands.
The RAW-13V has a 13mm thick polypropylene honeycomb core designed to evenly react to the force of impact and provide precision control, while also absorbing vibration and noise. It provides more power than the 16mm as it is not as thick. Many facilities and clubs ban loud paddles that include other core materials, so the RAW-13V 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 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!).
Paddle Cleaner Included
• Each RAW paddle will come with a GRUVN paddle cleaner, which is a stick of rubber that is 2.5” x 2” x 1” in size, This is for carbon fiber paddles only (not graphite or composite paddles). Rub it on your paddle surface to keep it clean and also maximize the spin. It isn't pretty, but your paddle will be after using it :)
** PADDLE CARE – IMPORTANT **
Your paddle can become damaged from extreme temperatures. Extreme cold temperatures will cause the core and hitting surface to become brittle and crack. Extreme high temperatures will soften the core and hitting surface and can cause delamination. This occurs when the hitting surface separates from the core. Dead spots and other issues will arise from this. Do not leave your paddle out in the sun on a hot day, be sure to cover it from the heat or it can be damaged. Do not leave your paddle in your vehicle during the summer or winter.
