Understanding Your Paddle

The Carbon Fiber Cleaning Block is specifically designed for raw carbon fiber faced paddles and is not suitable for composite or coated faced paddles.

So, how can you tell if your paddle is raw carbon fiber faced? The most apparent signs are the color and minimal design. Raw carbon fiber faced paddles will be a black color due to the carbon fiber threads. Upon closer inspection, you should notice clear, patterned lines and a uniform texture across the paddle face and it should be very noticeable to the touch as well.

In contrast, non-raw carbon fiber faced paddles often undergo a coating or sandblasting process for texture, resulting in a more irregular feel by comparison. These paddles typically showcase complex designs and colors, unlike the predominantly black color of raw carbon fiber faced paddles.

Please note that some pickleball paddles incorporate carbon fiber but are not classified as "raw" carbon fiber faces. These paddles often feature additional coating and paint, and thus, should not be cleaned with the Carbon Fiber Cleaning Block. Doing so may result in the texture and paint being rubbed off.

Using the Carbon Fiber Cleaning Block

The process of using the Carbon Fiber Cleaning Block is straightforward. Simply rub the edge of the block in a circular or up-and-down motion on the affected areas of your paddle. After loosening the debris, wipe it off, and your paddle is ready for action.

For a more thorough clean, consider using a bit of rubbing alcohol, water, and a microfiber cloth to remove any liquid spills on the face of your paddle. With these simple steps, you can ensure your paddle is in top shape for every game.
