The Wilson Steam Lite GRUUV Paddle. For the 2019 / 2020 season, the Steam family of paddles has been improved with the new GRUUV technology to maximize feel and spin. As in the prior Steam series (Steam CV paddles), the Steam GRUUV paddles offer a unique mid-plus head size and a slight teardrop shape. With models that vary in weight and core density, there is something in this line for every player. Wilson has carried their shock-reducing CounterVail technology forward from last year into this model as well, making this a super high-tech paddle!
The Wilson Steam Lite GRUUV Paddle is geared toward players seeking an easy swinging paddle with an easy-to-find sweet spot that offers maximum control, comfort and spin. Slightly less head-heavy than oversized head paddles, this still offers a large hitting area and its low density foam core offers the cushiest, most shock absorbing feel upon ball impact and the most help with accuracy of ball placement. For players new to the game or those seeking added help with controlling the ball’s trajectory for more accuracy, as well as anyone suffering from tennis elbow, the Steam Lite is a wise choice.
The tech behind Wilson GRUUV in the Steam Lite GRUUV:
Spin – angled holes allow the edges to better grab the ball as it leaves the paddle surface, resulting in maximized spin
Feel – angles holes allow the ball to contact more of the paddle surface giving the player added feel and ball control
