GRUVN RAW-16H Gregory Storm Middleweight Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle

A high-quality, middleweight pickleball paddle featuring a premium T700 raw carbon fiber surface and a dynamic, hybrid shape that 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 thick 16mm core results in a strong, stable paddle with consistent and accurate shots and more control. Professional model of Gregory Storm! 

Paddle Benefits

The hybrid shape provides a familiar experience for those who play a lot of tennis and is a great choice for players who prefer a more racquet-like feel as opposed to more traditional pickleball paddles and shorter handles. It has a large sweet spot, and the long paddle length of 16.5” extends players’ reach and the 5.75” handle length allows for powerful two-handed backhands. The slightly smaller surface width of 7.375” gives players an aerodynamic feel and great hand speed, and the weight of ~7.8-8.1 ounces provides stability and balance for all aspects of the game, including plays at the net and returning hard shots.


GRUVN pickleball paddles are guaranteed to be free of manufacturing defects for a period of 3 months from the date of purchase. If found to be defective, a repair or replacement will be issued. This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, damages caused by abuse or negligence, user modification, fading or scratched surfaces. The GRUVN Product warranty also does not transfer in the situation that a GRUVN Product transfers ownership.

Getting used to it B Clavier Beginner

Pros: Just getting into pickle ball. My hand felt a little big on the paddle I was using. This paddle has a much better feel, but I was surprised at how the ball came off it sometimes. Getting used to it and enjoying it. Feels much more natural now.

Cons: None really. Just was quite a bit different than the basic paddle I was using.
