Description Technical Specs

JOOLA Solaire CFS 14 Composite Pickleball Paddle

The Solaire CFS 14 Composite Pickleball Paddle from JOOLA is a uniquely designed paddle that can do just about everything an advanced player needs; from slice serves to providing dependable stability and comfort. JOOLA adds a specialized foam to the paddle's perimeter in order to maintain an even weight and build an edge-to-edge sweet spot. The face also utilizes their Carbon Friction Surface (CFS) texture to maximize spin and ensure pickleballs go where intended.

The Solaire CFS 14 has a wide 8" head which feels solid and well balanced, thanks in part to the introduction of JOOLA's Hyperfoam Edge Wall injected just beneath the edge guard around the perimeter of the paddle. Its weight ranges from 8.2 – 8.6 oz., placing it on the heavier end of the spectrum so it delivers high-level power, particularly on groundstrokes and overhead slams. The grip length is 5-1/2" with a 4-1/8" circumference, which allows just enough for room to utilize double-handed strokes. Aside from the foam inserted along the edges, JOOLA utilizes a high-grade polymer honeycomb core material to enhance durability and strength.

The Solaire CFS 14 Composite Paddle from JOOLA Pickleball makes it easy to integrate a wide variety of skills into your repertoire so you can maintain pressure on the competition and play more unpredictably.

Test Reviews of the Solaire CFS 14 Pickleball Paddle:

"My first impressions were that the new line of paddles from JOOLA were well made, solid, nicely balanced, and stood out due to the white handles. I selected the Solaire CFS 14 to demo as it matched my current paddle shape and would be good comparison for my evaluation. I've played two hours with it and have been nothing but satisfied with this JOOLA paddle. The strongest feature of this paddle for me was the Carbon Friction Surface (CFS). I play table tennis and like to bring various spins to the pickleball court and was amazed at how much more action I could put on the ball. But several other features also stood out with this paddle. It has a generous sweet spot as I consistently got good pop on the ball and seldom felt the thud of a ball not well-hit. I also liked the grip and handle shape. The white grip felt very secure with little to no slip, and the handle has the larger end shape that I'm accustomed to from racquetball. I do expect the white grip to darken up over time but am not concerned."

"I started playing with the Solaire CFS 14 model in early April and used it for several days, typically around 2 hours plus per day. I'm a 3.0+ player and I've used several different paddles. Overall I found it to be an excellent product and actually prefer it now over my current paddle which is a very popular high end brand that you see on every court. The Solaire is definitely lighter than my paddle, which I found to be a major bonus. The biggest advantage that I find with this paddle seems to be that it provides a bit better ball control; it has a softer feel at the moment of impact. This however did not seem to have any effect on how fast the ball would travel. I typically try to incorporate a lot of spin when possible and this paddle worked well in that regard. The face surface was about the same as my own paddle (not particularly gritty) but I was still able to put quite a bit of movement on serves and other shots. A feature that I found immediately beneficial and was happy to see was the paddles’ grip. It was a bit larger and definitely had a softer, better feel to it; you can see that it has raised ridges in it which helps a lot and feels great. Overall I was very impressed with it and would recommend it to most any player from mid level and up. I only say this as I assume that it might be a bit expensive for a raw beginner."

5 of 5 The BEST Joola September 2, 2022
Reviewer: Tim Van Hine from Denver, CO United States  
The touch & control on resets & volley’s is the absolute best part of this paddle- even better than the ben john’s hyperion edition. My hands feel a bit quicker with the square shape & 14mm vs. the elongated hyperion 16mm. Dinks & drops are easy & have great touch. Power is strong as this paddle is weighted top heavy- put away’s & drives are seamless. As a 4.5 pickleballer, coming from Tennis, I can generate a lot of spin naturally- this paddle further elevates it with the carbon face.

I love square shapes with longer handles, this paddle gives exactly that & I prefer it vs. elongated paddles.

The one recommendation I would give, is to put lead tape on the handle (I added about 0.3OZ) or on the edgeguard of the paddle right near the handle. Balancing the weight of this paddle feels incredible & is almost needed -since it is very top heavy out of the box.  

I’ve played with paddletek, engage, selkirk, carbon & gearbox- All good companies, Joola standa ahead w/the CFS paddles.

5 of 5 Good paddle July 5, 2022
Reviewer: DOUGLAS SUZUKI from CRESCENT CITY, CA United States  
This paddle gives me more pop than the Ben Johns CFS paddle, which I had to adjust my dinks at the NVZ. I can direct my shots and now have more power to put the ball past my opponents.

Reviewer: James from Springfield, IL United States  
Fine paddle but  I like the Hyperion CFS16
I used to the longer paddle so didn’t really get used to it.
