Middleweight/Small Grip

HEAD Gravity Tour SH Carbon/Composite Pickleball Paddle

Designed to offer a massive sweet spot and unparalleled control, the HEAD Gravity Tour SH paddle is the short-handled version of HEAD's popular Gravity Tour Paddle. Designed for players who mis-hit and need maximum surface area, as well as those who play "finger up" and enjoy a shorter handle as a result. The key to this paddle is the Sweetspot Power Core. This unique 14mm (0.55") thick polymer honeycomb core allows the sweet spot to span virtually the entire 8.1" wide face of this paddle. This large sweet spot provides a soft yet powerful feel that gives you the feedback you need to hit precise point winning shots more often than ever. The 15.75" overall length and 4.25" long handle add up to a paddle providing more usable surface area on the face than virtually any other on the market.

The performance of the Gravity Tour SH doesn't stop with the enlarged sweet spot. This paddle boasts the same Hybrid Hitting Surface (graphite/composite blend) and SpinOn Texture found throughout the Gravity Tour line. This combination adds power for big drives, precise spin to help you control the match, and two grip circumference options to ensure a proper fit for your hand size. Then, consider the namesake short handle that puts your hand closer to the sweet spot, and you will have a paddle that adds control and feel to your game without detracting from your power shots.

The Gravity Tour SH Paddle from HEAD Pickleball takes the reliable features found across the Gravity line, and pairs them with a larger sweet spot and a short handle to help you win more points than you ever thought possible.

    Love this paddle, though only used it twice because there was a crack in the edge guard, so returned it. PBC was great
