The long paddle length of 16.5” extends players’ reach and the 5.5” 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 ~7.9 ounces provides stability and balance for all aspects of the game, including plays at the net and returning hard shots.

Lots Of Spin!!
This paddle can provide a ton of spin! John Kew’s testing was an average of 2,152RPMSTS Pickleball‘s testing recorded an average spin rate of 2,032 RPMPickleball Journey’s testing recorded the average spin rate at a very high 2,028 RPM and the average power at 54.9 MPH.  If you want spin, this paddle is a top tier spin paddle.

The RAW-16X 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-16X 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 has a black edge guard and also comes with a zippered neoprene cover with the GRÜVN logo to protect the pickleball paddle when not in play ($15 value!).

What is the difference between the RAW-16X ,RAW-16H, and RAW-16E elongated paddles?
These paddles all have an overall paddle length of 16.5″ and a width of 7.375″, but the differences are the handle length and face length. The shorter the handle length, the longer the face. The RAW-16H has the longest handle length at 5.875″, the RAW-16E has the shortest handle length at 4.75″, and the RAW-16X is in the middle with a handle length of 5.5″. The RAW-16E has more control, the RAW-16H has more power, and the RAW-16X is in between. The RAW-16H also has a slightly thicker handle because of its length. For players with small hands this may not be a good fit, although the RAW-13H paddle has a slightly thinner grip size than the RAW-16H (13mm core paddles have more power and a bit less control).
