NEW! Joola Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 (Carbon Friction Surface)
Love this paddle so far!
Pro's - great power from the baseline while also having control at the kitchen. Best paddle I have used for resets.
Con's - This is not a light paddle, I am getting used to the weight, but I would offer caution to anyone who is concerned about it being heavy, it is. It is also an expensive paddle, did I need to spend this much on a paddle, probably not.
I would recommend this paddle to anyone who is looking at paddles in this price range and is not concerned about weight.
I play at level 2.0 ! Lol ok this paddle is terrific, its heavier than my old one (7.6 oz) this new one is 8 ⅝ oz. Quite a difference! The heavier paddle is better for me, I'm averaging 1 to 2 points more per game. I've had to modify my serve a little bit as this paddle has a ton of power.
I don't know how it spins a ball though because I haven't figured how to spin yet 🤣
This was Good purchase for me.
Remarkable performance and feel.
I think it's a very different kind of paddle .when it come to hitting the ball for power, I think that less is more when it come to contacting the ball . Not solded on the grip, it gets a little slick when my hands started to sweat..Control very good.
Such a better paddle than the Franklin Ben John. The sweet spot is bigger, thus more control. The surface is rougher, more spin! It’s a bit on the heavy side, but I like it that way. Very satisfied with my new paddle!
