(Includes paddle cleaner & paddle cover)
GRUVN's RAW-16V is a high-quality, mid-weight pickleball paddle featuring a premium T700 raw carbon fiber surface. It 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 thick 16mm core results in a strong, stable paddle with consistent and accurate shots and more control.
The RAW-16V has a weight of ~7.9 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-16V has a 16mm thick polypropylene honeycomb core designed to evenly react to the force of impact and provide precision control, while also absorbing vibration and noise. Many facilities and clubs ban loud paddles that include other core materials, so the RAW-16V 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 3D Premium Perforated Cushion Grip is a double-layer, two-color anti-slip hand grip, with an inner layer made of sweat-absorbing sponge and the outer layer made of PU (polyurethane leather) material with big air hole design.
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.
