JOOLA Radius CGS 16 Graphite Pickleball Paddle

The Radius CGS 16 Graphite Pickleball Paddle from JOOLA takes inspiration from JOOLA's expertise in table tennis equipment by bringing a rounded paddle shape to pickleball. The result is an extra-large sweet spot that feels pleasantly reactive no matter where you hit. A textured Carbon Grip Surface (CGS) adds extra spin to your swings with a polymer core that builds control without reducing power.

The Radius CGS 16 features an extra-wide 8.2" face which provides plenty of usable surface area throughout. It weighs in the 7.4 – 7.8 oz. range, making it highly maneuverable and speedy during volley exchanges. The 5" long handle is wrapped in a Sure-Grip style grip including perforations for sweat resistance and ribbing for stable hand placement. The grip has a 4-1/8" circumference, while the 16mm (0.63") thick core minimizes vibrations, allowing for more consistency while mitigating joint irritation and muscle fatigue.

The Radius CGS 16 Graphite Paddle from JOOLA Pickleball offers a pleasantly smooth feel, while retaining great pop and reactivity across its broad face.

5 of 5 Great paddle! September 24, 2022
Reviewer: Dave from Green Valley  
Had to chime in on how great this paddle has been. Owned 4 months now.
I would disagree with some of the reviews of this paddle. It has plenty of power if you swing as you should with your body. It has dinking and 3rd shot finesse, with great feel at the net. Lighter weight for quick defense. This carbon surface is bar none the best spin / stick to the ball surface of all the paddles I have owned.
Most people could use more touch and less power to their game.
One thing that attracted and has worked well is the sensible shape and shorter handle. Really works for comfortable hand placement when the index finger is used in the “up” position.
4.0 player.

4 of 5 Some will love this, power players won't August 2, 2022
Reviewer: jonathan Chandler from Lake Forest, CA United States  
Really nice balance, feel, but lacks power. Even with some lead tape. However, the touch is amazing

3 of 5 A good dinking and blocking paddle July 11, 2022
Reviewer: Pickleball Ted from Las Vegas  
The Radius is consistent for dinks and blocks, but lacks power for many tasks at its natural weight. Serves and topspin drives require extra effort to generate much power. Hitting third balls requires extra attention to followthrough.  Transition zone resetting requires conscious effort to push the ball, both as volleys and half-volleys.  

The ping pong inspired shape, with 8.2" width and 15.8" length, doesn't depart much from traditional paddle style. The 5" handle is longer than needed for true ping pong grip. The CGS surface impartsadequate spin, but noticeably less spin than does the CFS surface. The sweet spot is large, but not edge to edge.

5 of 5 Epic paddle July 5, 2022
Reviewer: Mark from San Clemente, CA United States  
If you like to put a lot of spin on the ball, this is the paddle without sacrificing power. From the first day I used you could definitely tell a difference. Also, I felt I had more control of my shots. The sweet spot isn’t as advertised but pretty darn close. Super stoked.
