Description Technical Specs

Armour HELIO Composite Performance Paddle

The HELIO Composite Performance Paddle generates impressive power without an unwieldy weight. The design is slightly elongated so that players can enjoy extra reach yet the width is broad enough to offer an ample sweet spot. The Helio Composite has a thicker core which dampens impact during defensive play yet also creates a consistent and reactive feel for more aggressive maneuvers. It offers a great balance that can handle both gentle dinks and powerful drives.

The HELIO Composite Performance Paddle weighs 7.7 - 7.9 oz and has a medium grip circumference. The handle is 4-½" long and comes wrapped in a perforated grip which prevents sweat from building up and affecting the security of your grasp. The additional cushioning feels pleasant while protecting from jostling. The 16mm polymer core is forgiving and easy to use for all skill levels thanks to its soft touch and durable construction.

The HELIO Composite Performance Paddle can accommodate many different styles while making it easier to improve strength and precision.

Reviews of the Helio Performance Composite Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The Helio Composite from Armour is a quality addition to the thick core/fiberglass paddle class. What it adds is the unique shape. The reverse teardrop gives the paddle some interesting aerodynamic properties that allow you to move quickly to balls. It is a midweight paddle (7.7-7.9 oz) that has the weight to put some power behind your shots and ensure the put-away shots get put away. The grip, like other thick core paddles, is a bit larger but still comfortable (not too boxy). The performance of the Helio is comparable to paddles in the same price range. Steve Wong has done a great job with his paddle launch."

5 of 5 Nice combo of power, control and spin April 1, 2022
Reviewer: Ted from Las Vegas, NV United States  
This paddle hits the Goldilocks spot for me: adequate power to put balls away; great control for transition zone resets and dinking; above average spin for topspin serves and yellow zone rolls at the NVZ line. The paddle plays like a control paddle at low swing speeds, but adds some pop with compact drives and sharp volleys. The sweet spot is generous and off-center hits are well tolerated. Construction quality seems good.

5 of 5 Ben Johns Signature Paddle Like September 17, 2021
Reviewer: Shane from Cave Creek, AZ United States  
I believe the Helio paddle plays like the Ben Johns Signature Paddle with a shorter handle. This was just what I was looking for since I have changed back to a finger on the paddle face grip for more control. The shorter handle is ideal for this grip as you don’t sacrifice paddle face like with a longer handle. The 16 mm thickness is forgiving while still having plenty of power. I am a 4.0-4.5 player. Great job Armour!
