The Wilson Blade Smart GRUUV Paddle is aimed at players seeking a maneuverable, mid weight paddle with a blend of both power and control. This is accomplished via Wilson’s patented Smart Density core material that provides just the amount of power needed, based on the speed at which the ball impacts the paddle. A softer shot gives you more control due to the low density foam closer to the surface and a harder, faster swing results in more power as the ball reacts off of the higher density core material toward the inside of the paddle head. The smaller head size of the Blade family of paddles allows for faster head speed through the swing but also requires more user-accuracy at ball contact to cleanly connect with the paddle’s sweet spot. This 2021 version features Wilson’s GRUUV angled holes in the center of the paddle’s head for more access to spin on the ball!
More about the Wilson Blade paddle series:
As always, Wilson’s Blade family of paddles all feature a (smaller) 80 square inch head size for more maneuverability. The Blade models include a Blade Lite, Blade Smart and Blade Pro, all geared toward more competitive players who favor lower swing weights (less head weight) allowing faster paddle positioning and more aggressive play. GRUUV optimizes spin and feel through angled holes that maximize ball contact on the paddle surface and allow edges to grab the ball more effectively.
