Taking care of your pickleball equipment (How do I make sure my paddle lasts longer?)
1. Cleaning your paddle.
Our paddles are constructed using raw Toray Carbon Fiber, which provides next level spin, but can be a bit challenging to clean. You may notice white residue from the ball on the surface over time. We recommend using a damp microfiber cloth or any lint free cloth to clean the surface of your paddle as needed.
Extreme temperatures can distort many items, including the adhesive materials used to assemble your pickleball paddle. To avoid extreme cold, heat, or humid environments it is recommended that you store your paddle indoors. Although it is convenient to keep your paddles in the trunk of your car so that you are. Try to avoid storing your paddle in extreme cold, heat or humid environments. It is recommended that you store your paddle inside. Keeping your paddle in your car might sound like a nice idea to make sure you are always ready to play, it is not recommended due to temperature changes. Additionally, our paddle is made with a honeycomb core, which can trap moisture inside if it is left in a humid environment.

PRODUCT & ORDERS
How many different paddles do you have?
Do you offer different handle sizes?
Our paddles come with one standard handle size that corresponds to each paddle. Please refer to each paddle listing to see if which handle length will be right for you.
What is the difference between Model E and Electrum Pro?
Electrum Pro is light and ideal for fast-hands exchanges at the kitchen. The thin (11mm) core allows for more pop and power, as the ball comes off the paddle faster. The traditional square shape allows for a larger, edge to edge sweet spot. This paddle is a great choice to take your game to the next level.
Electrum Model E is a heavier and elongated paddle. The thicker (16mm) core provides players with more control and softer touch, which allows for accurate reset ability and all around stronger defense without sacrificing the power, spin, and control that our paddles are known for. The extra length allows for better reach at the kitchen, as well as better extension for singles play.
What do you do to ensure compliance with USAPA standards?
Rest assured Electrum paddles are USA Pickleball approved and continuously maintain that status. Our company has taken multiple steps to that our equipment meets all USA Pickleball requirements.
1. Every batch of our equipment undergoes testing during the manufacturing process. Paddles are serialized by batch so if something is wrong (manufacturer defect) we can address it by tracking particular batches back to the factory.
2. In-house testing of the most important metrics (paddle surface roughness and coefficient of friction) is conducted every 2 weeks. Paddles are randomly selected from our New York warehouse and tested to ensure that we continue to meet quality standards.
