GRUVN's RAW-13E (Elongated shape) is a high-quality, mid-weight pickleball paddle featuring a premium T700 raw carbon fiber surface, an elongated shape, and a huge sweet spot. It is approved by USA Pickleball (USAPA) for tournament play. Raw carbon fiber paddles provide a grainy textured surface that allows for a lot of spin and enhances control. The combination of this paddle’s raw surface and the 13mm core results in a strong, stable paddle with consistent and accurate shots and more control.
The elongated shape increases the surface area of the paddle to hit more shots and extend your reach, and is great for players who enjoy the quick battles in the kitchen. The RAW-13E 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, and the handle length is 4.75".
The RAW-13E 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-13E 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 an ocean blue edge guard and zippered neoprene cover with the GRÜVN logo to protect the pickleball paddle when not in play ($15 value!).
