Helo Pickleball Paddle by Paddletek

The Helo Composite Pickleball Paddle is Paddletek's admirable addition to the "lean and long" category of paddles. The Hēlo extends farther than most options at 17" which allows for a high level of reach and adaptability. The shorter handle makes it simple to use a Ping Pong style grip by placing your index finger against the paddle's face for more control. The ProPolyCore dampens impact while letting you dictate the pace of rallies.

The Helo Composite Paddle weighs 7.6 - 7.9 oz and has a large grip. This is quite rare, especially for lengthier paddles. If you enjoy extra cushioning or just have broader hands, then you'll love the feel of the Helo. The paddle has a dotted pattern along its sides with an off-white background and Paddletek's logo in the middle. The edge guard sits tight to the side of the face in order to help prevent mis-hits.

The Helo Composite Paddle lets you reach the longest shots so you can achieve the quickest victories.

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

Club Review of the Paddletek Helo ProPolyCore Paddle

Pickleball Central worked with the crew over at the Vaca Valley Pickleball Club. They put the paddle through it's paces with a variety of 3.0 - 4.0 rated players with some serious hours on the court. Here's the results of their demo testing:

"The HELO paddle provides a great amount of power at no real cost to the user. It dips the ball lower than other paddles I have used while imparting a good amount of spin. You can place the ball anywhere on the court from the back or with your serve. The smashes are phenomenal and difficult to return whether you decide to put pace or spin. There is a good amount of pop in the volleys and itís capable of taking pace off with ease. The same goes for dinks; itís easy to create sharp angles at the net. Overall, I think this paddle is a great fit for players seeking a power paddle with long reach and a huge sweet spot.

Thanks to Pickleball Central for giving us the opportunity to test and review this uniquely designed paddle. Several people in our group played with it for a number of games. Here are a few of their comments:

Klaus - (4.0 Player):'I liked the feel of power and thought that a player with smaller hands would do better with this paddle.'

Cami - (3.0 Player, recent convert from Tennis Pictured Below):'I preferred the extra length of the HELO which provided a larger sweet spot. The solid impact was another plus for me. Would definitely buy this paddle.'

Paul - (3.5 Player):'I liked the power imparted on the ball by this paddle, but would have preferred a slightly heavier model.' (Maybe add some lead tape to bring weight up?)

Marilee (3.5 Player):'I liked the way it performed when serving, giving good control and extra power. The extended length also made this paddle a favorite of a short player with a limited reach. This could possibly be my next paddle purchase.' "

Reviewer: Robert Smith from San Jose, CA United States  
I was a little skeptical but have enjoyed the stretched face. Would like a little more handle but it’s working well. More power, a bit more control and definitely more reach.

Paddletek paddle January 10, 2019
Reviewer: matt hoelzel from Middlesex, NJ United States  
This is the second time I have purchased this specific paddle. First one in March 2018. Next one Jan 2019. It is solid for all styles of play. Love the smaller handle. Enables me to hold it similar to ping pong paddle. The extra length has actually saved me a number of times.    Only negative is I had hoped it would last a bit longer. The core feels like it got soft after 11 months, 3-4 times a week of hard play

December 18, 2018
Reviewer: Dennis from Fort Worth, TX United States  
I bought a Helo paddle for me and for my wife. We received them after 3 days so the delivery was really fast (5/5). We used our paddles for 2 days and we loved it because it is longer than our previous paddles but wasn’t wide enough so we were missing a lot of shots. We liked the paddles but it’s just not meant for us (2/5). I called the customer service and the lady on the phone was very helpful and very polite (star rating of 5/5). I swapped our paddles to the Selkirk amped Omni, paid an extra which we don’t mind  and we received them after 4 days (star rating of 5/5). The purple paddle was covered with a Selkirk plastic cover and you can tell that it was new because of its sandy texture. The aqua paddle only came with a clear plastic cover, the texture was smooth, seems slippery and not sandy as compared to the purple paddle. I just hope that the aqua paddle is a brand new paddle and my slice will work on it. Thank you to pickleball central and I will definitely order again from you
