Ben Johns Pickleball Paddle by Franklin

True 16mm Thick Core Version - Same That Ben Used

The Ben Johns Signature Pickleball Paddle was created by a champion and plays to the standards a top player requires. It has an extra textured surface that creates incredible traction so that balls spin more easily. Vibration is reduced thanks to the polypropylene core while creating a large, versatile sweet spot. The long handle and overall paddle length let players make use of double-handed backhands and enjoy shot options with more the extension of the contact point.

The Ben Johns Signature Pickleball Paddle weighs an average of 8.1 oz, making it a bit heavier than the typical paddle. This allows it to generate more power with less player effort. The Max Grit technology used on the surface is ideal for precise, controlled play. The 4-1/2" medium grip circumference has a pleasant level of padding that limits the amount of vibration that reaches your hand. Ben plays with a 16mm thick core, and the paddle also comes in 13mm. Average weight of 13mm core, is 7.7 ounces.

The Ben Johns Signature Pickleball Paddle is made for the serious player who wants an adaptable, efficient paddle that can easily cover the full span of the court.

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

Reviews of the Franklin Ben Johns Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The Ben John’s Franklin paddle is a power paddle, that plays with a consistent touch to also work with the short game. Like other thick core Fiberglass paddles, this 16mm thick-cored paddle has a lot of pop. Yet the core helps spread out the impact and makes the sweet spot a little larger. What I really liked about this paddle is how the long handle allowed me to reach out and get some balls I might not normally get, and hit those shots with power. I feel that the paddle flexes more and gives just that added speed on my shots. So, when I was out of position (yes it happens often) the paddle helped make up for it and allowed me back into points. I also like the amount of spin I could generate with my slice shots. I believe most spin comes from the stroke, but the Max-Grit surface defintely provides an assist."

Wow, what a difference. Large sweet spot, lots of power. I like the longer handle and the rough surface.  Great paddle for the price.
