Description Technical Specs

Rally Graphite Power 5.0 Paddle

The Rally Graphite Power 5.0 is a ground breaking paddle with an exceptionally solid feel, enormous sweet spot, and more than enough power to put balls away with confidence. This paddle combines three major technological innovations that provide both the exceptional ball control and shot feel of a graphite faced paddle while delivering consistent power usually only found in thick polymer core, composite face paddles.

The first innovation is the paddle's face material which is made from a hybrid graphite/polymer weave. Featuring Vertigrab Wave technology this layered structure expands the size of the sweet spot, allowing even shots hit off center to feel as if they've been struck in the middle of the paddle face and offers enhanced control and purchase on the ball. The Rally Graphite is the first paddle to utilize this breakthrough technology. The woven material helps transfer energy throughout the paddle surface to provide more consistency on shots regardless of where on the face the ball is struck.

The second innovation is the use of the thicker 9/16" polymer core which increases rigidity of the paddle over the entire length and width. While most paddles are 1/2" thick, the Rally Graphite Power's thicker 9/16" core sets a new standard in paddles at this price point. This unique core helps create incredible consistency of shots over a larger area of the face resulting in fewer "mis-hit" shots and while providing an exceptional transfer of energy from the paddle to the ball. In combination with the hybrid graphite/polymer face, it also results in one of the quietest, lowest vibration paddles we've ever tested.

The final innovation is the use of a molecular bonding process to help bring the outer skin, core facing material, and polymer honeycomb interior together in a way that assures exceptional durability and quality. The outer skin's surface is textured and formed to reflect the subsurface Vertigrab Wave structure allowing you the ability to impart spin on the ball with ease and confidence.

The goal with this paddle was to meet the needs of players seeking both exceptional ball control, with solid striking power. By optimizing not just the materials, but also weight and balance of this paddle, the result is a paddle that feels light enough and balanced to give you good hand speed during rapid kitchen exchanges, but enough heft to give you confidence on overheads, drives, and shots in windy conditions.

The Rally Graphite Power 5.0's 8-1/8" width helps create one of the industry's most generous sweet spots, and paired with the slender edge guard, give players plenty of room to manipulate their shots. The weight range is 7.8 - 8.1 oz and is ideal for those who want extra power without losing out on hand speed. By creating a paddle with more width, it moves the balance point (aka center of mass) of the paddle closer to the grip which helps improve hand speed. This balance avoids the head heavy feel of many 8+ ounce paddles.

Testers have been blown away at the price performance of this paddle, comparing it favorably to paddles costing well over $100. Pickleball Central is proud to have produced such a high performance paddle at this very affordable price.

The grip circumference comes in two sizes with the option of either a thin or standard grip. We wanted this paddle to be accessible and comfortable for players of all types, so we are making this paddle available in both a thin 4" and standard 4 1/4" grip size. A black background and two stripes of color run diagonally across the paddle's face with its name placed in the center.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

This paddle is proudly designed and produced in the United States.

The Rally Graphite Power 5.0 sets a new standard in price performance, and will ensure you can hit winners with consistency and direct the pace of your games.

good paddle for the price July 20, 2019
Reviewer: Robin King from Boone, NC United States  
I'm a lefty and the standard grip was wrapped for a right-handed player. I could not figure out why I was unable to get a firm grip and saw that my fingers did not align with the grove channels.  Also, I have two other Rally Graphite Power paddles that came with a flat, non-textured grip.  I thought that was "standard" so I was surprised to get this channeled grip.  I like it, but I'm having to adjust grip pressure to maintain control.

Great Paddle - Excellent Customer Service July 18, 2019
Reviewer: George from Lake Havasu, AZ United States  
I purchased the new Rally Graphite Power 5.0. I've been playing with a very light paddle. I was looking for something a tad bit heavier and with this paddle's graphite composite surface, it was perfect. Great combination of control and power. I would venture to say that this less expensive paddle could compete with the more expensive ones. The customer service at Pickleball Central is unparalleled. Always very courteous and helpful.

Reviewer: Fred Markowitz from Boynton Beach, FL United States  
If you want a paddle that has a graphite face with a polymer core at a price far below what is being charged for paddles like this in general order this paddle now. It has all the hitting characteristics of a polymer paddle: A great deal of power and only a small if moticable at all loss of control. I like this Gamma paddle better than the Gamma graphite paddle with a nomex core. The paddle absorbs power shot returns beautifully and enables you to place these balls more accurately. It is a paddle that intermediate and advanced players will find to their liking.

Reviewer: Gordy from FL United States  
I broke a paddle I had purchased 2 months prior. They expressed shipped a new Rally Graphite Power 5.0 the next day, no charge. I like this paddle slightly better than the Stryker I also play with
