Made in the USA, the Rubicon Blade is a carbon weave resin impregnated “blade”. The carbon weave extends through out this paddle, it does not end at the throat. All Rubicons weigh between 7.6 and 9.3 ounces so you may request a desired weight range. It has the biggest sweet spot available – so we didn’t sheer weight off by downsizing the head.
This pickleball handle is an oval shape. We deliberately designed this with a flatter surface so it does not twist or spin in your hand.
This is an edgeless blade. We highly recommend purchasing RiverStyks protective edge tape because eventually with play, the original edge tape–which comes pre-applied–will wear out.
Our pickleball tape is of high quality, made to protect the edge of the Rubicon in the same way one protects a tennis or racquetball frame.
This blade reads “THE DIE IS CAST” on one side. And the Latin for Caesar’s comment “ALEA IACTA EST” is on the other side.
- Blade comes standard with a black grip.
