Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The PROLITE CRUSH Pickleball Paddle features PROLITE’s Fiberglass SpinTac Surface technology that is only available on a PROLITE pickleball paddle. The fiberglass facing acts as you would imagine, it’s fast, powerful and super reactive, giving you a great mix of power and control. When it comes to the paddle surface, SpinTac Technology is constructed from a mix of different saturation levels during the printing process that gives the paddle surface a tacky feel. The tackiness on the face of the PROLITE CRUSH makes spinning the ball and applying roll on top-spin shots super-easy. In fact, the SpinTac paddle surface is one of the big stand-out features on the PROLITE CRUSH paddle.
The PROLITE CRUSH Pickleball Paddle features PROLITE’s high-grade Polypropylene Honeycomb core that is built with noise and shock dampening properties designed to give you a powerful and consistent feeling when striking the pickleball. Thanks to the fiberglass which cases the polypropylene core, the CRUSH is light to move with but can apply devastating power on the pickleball when you need it. What’s more, the SpinTac paddle surface makes it easy to swerve the pickleball from the back of the court. Whether you spend the majority of your time at the net, or at the back of the court, you will find the PROLITE CRUSH comfortable in handling any scenario on-court.
Dimensions & Weight
The PROLITE CRUSH Pickleball Paddle is a middleweight paddle with a lightweight head. The CRUSH weighs between 7.6 – 8.2 ounces making it powerful enough to easily win points at the back of the court, while light enough to be mobile and agile around the net. The CRUSH measures 15 1/2” long and features a 7 7/8” wide paddle face with an oversized sweet spot. If you are looking for a paddle that is well-proportioned and quick to react with, you will love the build off the PROLITE CRUSH. It’s also built to the same size dimension as the hugely popular PROLITE Magnum, which is no bad thing.
Handle & Grip
The PROLITE CRUSH Pickleball Paddle has an extra-long grip length which measured 5 1/4” long. This provides the PROLITE CRUSH with additional leverage from the back of the court when you’re looking to create whip on your shots. What’s more, the extended paddle handle is perfect for tennis converts who like the extended reach of a long handle, as well as the ability to play with two hands on the backhand side. The CRUSH handle is wrapped using PROLITE’s SofTac 32 Cushion Grip which is a really popular option for a lot of players. The SofTac grip features a perforated surface which helps to draw moisture away from your palm, while the cushioning built into the paddle provides a firm but comfortable feel on-court.
