JOOLA Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 Graphite Pickleball Paddle

The Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 Graphite Paddle from JOOLA gives players the opportunity to experience greatness — not only due to its materials and construction, but because you'll be using the very same paddle wielded by the most highly ranked player in men's singles, doubles, and mixed doubles pickleball history: Ben Johns. The design leverages JOOLA's unique foam-injected perimeter ("Hyperfoam Edge Wall") surrounding a 16mm (0.63") thick polymer core to improve consistency, weight distribution, and the size of the sweet spot. On the exterior of the paddle, you'll appreciate JOOLA's textured Carbon Friction Surface (CFS) which takes your gear's capacity for spin to the next level so you can shape your shots on a moment's notice.

The Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 Paddle measures 16-1/2" in length, which makes it easier than ever to reach across the court, dig out those pesky low balls, and follow through on every swing. The 5-1/2" long handle allows for double-handed shots which are useful when you need to put a ball away quickly or topspin roll a winner down the middle. At 0.63" the core is much thicker than average in order to dampen impacts, maximize control, and reduce the time needed to recover from off-center strikes. The paddle weighs in at 8.4 – 8.6 oz., giving it plenty of swing-weight without the need for a big windup. Its grip circumference is 4-1/4" with perforations that minimize moisture and comfortable ridges which let players align their fingers by feel alone. Every detail meet's Ben's exacting specifications.

The Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 Graphite Paddle by JOOLA Pickleball delivers all the features needed to truly hone your skills and support advanced players in maintaining control over every inch of the court.

Reviews of the Hyperion CFS 16 Ben Johns Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"The Hyperion CFS is the flagship model of the Pickleball line from JOOLA, and after playing with it for about a week it's easy to see why. Coming in at 16mm thick the paddle has incredible touch around the net which I attribute to the "reactive honeycomb" core. The "Carbon Friction Surface" let me bend the ball on drops and drives effortlessly, making it a blast to be offensive from anywhere on the court. The core and surface alone would have sold me on the paddle, but the "Hyperfoam Edge Wall" sweet spot and stability enhancement is no gimmick; this paddle has the largest sweet spot of anything I've tested. It's easy to see why this is Ben Johns' weapon of choice. If you, as a competitive pickleball player, can handle the 8.2+ ounce weight, the Hyperion CFS 16 has the spin, touch, and stability to take you to the next level. Mine certainly won't be leaving my bag anytime soon."
Joseph, Warehouse Team (4.0 Player)

More Test Reviews of the Hyperion CFS 16 Pickleball Paddle:

"I have been playing pickleball for almost 4 years now and rate myself a high 4.5/low 5.0 skill level player. When I was asked to review the Joola paddles I was excited about the opportunity but honestly didn't think it would be a very different experience from other pickleball paddles I have used in the past. However, I found the JOOLA Hyperion to be an excellent paddle for both indoor and outdoor play. I had excellent control moving through the transition zone and blocking up at the net. I had about the same amount of power on drives and smashes as I do my other graphite paddle. What most impressed me on power shots was the feel of the paddle; there was very little vibration when hitting or blocking which made for a very comfortable experience. The sweet spot felt huge, and even when missing I didn't experience the rattle or clunk like most paddles.

Even though I'm not a 2-handed player, I liked the balance provided by the extended handle. The grip on the CFS 16 was perfect; I wouldn't even bother to re-grip it for fit. I liked the ridged grip that came with the paddle. It felt tacky and easy to hold, and didn't get slick after a couple hours of indoor play. I was hoping this paddle was going to be a bit of a gimmick so that I could demo it and move on with my life. I'm sorry to say that it was so awesome that now I really want one!"

"After playing with the new Joola Hyperion paddle for about 10 hours, I was Impressed. I liked the slightly top heavy feel, as it delivered impressive power while still retaining its touch. The carbon surface takes spin control to whole new levels! I like the hybrid size of the face and elongated handle, as it allows for two handed backhands. The best feature of this paddle is that there are no dead spots! I was hitting near the edge and it delivered like I had hit dead center. I just found my new paddle!"

5 of 5 Great Paddle- Instantly a Better Player September 7, 2022
Reviewer: Robert Greenwood from WI  
This paddle made me a better player instantly. I am hitting the ball with more accuracy, touch, shape, and consistency. From the serve to the drop to the dink to the volley, this paddle has helped my game immensely. The sweet spot is huge and even off center hits find their way over the net. I really love the feel of the head heavy design and the handle is absolutely perfect. I come from a Prince which I was feeling pretty good about, but this paddle has elevated my addiction to the game as it has translated into more points and more wins without so much as a transition period. The price is hefty, but the experience it provides has made me forget about that.

5 of 5 Great paddle and buying experience September 7, 2022
Reviewer: Mark Friedman from Tustin, CA United States  
I’m a 3.0 - 3.5 player depending on the day, and evidently, the phase of the moon. Consistency is not my strong suit, but spinning is a huge part of my game. I was intrigued with the Ben John’s Hyperion paddle and wanted to try it out. PickleBall Central’s 30-day return policy was a perfect solution since I also knew the paddle was heavier than I’m used to. I called to confirm the return policy and they were very understanding and supportive. Based on that, I ordered the paddle and the ordering process was simple and straightforward and I received my paddle when they said it would be delivered. I have played with the paddle a total of 3 times so far and I love it. My spinning is great and the weight doesn’t seem to be an issue.

4 of 5 Durability September 6, 2022
Reviewer: Colby Holcomb from Seattle, WA United States  
Paddle itself is fantastic. I think it comes in just under the CRBN paddles though. I am on my 3rd paddle. Two have broken each just after 30 days. It has great power, spin and control.

3 of 5 I tried the CFS 16 Joola September 6, 2022
Reviewer: G A from VA  
It’s heavy and I’m a 205 6’4 individual. My initial reaction was excited to try. I played several games. In 1 I fell behind 8-1 with opponents I routinely have no problem hanging with. At 10-1 I went back to my regular paddle and lost by 2 points. It would have taken inordinate time to get it feeling right though I’ll never really know. Vastly different from the Head Gravity. Different strokes for different folks…..***PBC Reply*** Hi G.A., and thanks for your feedback. Every paddle change comes with a transition period, for sure. The CFS 16 is different enough from a Gravity that yes, we wouldn't expect you to perform as good or better in your first game out.  Given the time to adjust, we're confident the JOOLA paddle would prove to be an effective weapon for you as it has for so many others. However, this is precisely why we offer our 30-day Paddle Test Drive, so feel free to send it back to us for a full refund if you decide it's definitely not for you. Thanks again! - The PickleballCentral Team
