GRUVN's THE ROUNDER-G is a high-quality mid-weight graphite pickleball paddle that is approved by USA Pickleball (USAPA) for tournament play. It has a widebody paddle face with a rounded oval shape, similar to a tennis racquet, providing a larger hitting surface, and has a gorgeous design on the paddle face. This paddle has a great combination of power, outstanding touch and ball control. Its 5.5” handle length makes for great two-handed swings and extended reaches across the court, and the paddle has a large sweet spot. The Rounder-G provides precision control and is a great choice for any level of player, from experienced pro players to beginners looking for a high-quality widebody paddle.
The polypropylene honeycomb core paddles absorb vibration and noise. Many facilities and clubs ban loud paddles that include other core materials, so the Rounder-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 Rounder-G’s paddle surface has a textured UV sandpaper oil coating, adding a rough texture that helps with spin shots and increased control.
There are two types of grips available for this paddle. The 3D Premium 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. The Stitched Perforated Cushion Grip is also 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!).
