JOOLA Anna Bright Scorpeus CFS 14 Textured Carbon Fiber Pickleball PaddleFull video review of the Anna Bright Scorpeus CFS 14 Pickleball Paddle!
Leaning toward power, with the profile of a defensive control, the JOOLA Anna Bright Scorpeus CFS 14 Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle offers top of the line performance in all aspects of the game. The most powerful aspect of this paddle is the 14mm Reactive Honeycomb Polymer core. Introduced to the JOOLA line recently, this core offers surprising amounts of rebound and pop that adds high level power to any shot, as well as all the feel that top players demand. To further enhance power, this paddle boasts a 5.25" handle wrapped in JOOLA's Sure Grip that adds some swing speed to help your big drives find their way past attentive defenders.
When a traditionally-shaped 16" long by 8" wide paddle offers this much power, keeping it in play can be tricky. Luckily the Anna Bright Scorpeus CFS 14 offers plenty of control elements as well. The 11.75" by 8" Carbon Friction Hitting Surface is the most evident of these control elements. The squared-up shape, hyperfoam-injected edges, and thermoformed construction allow the sweet spot to reach practically from corner to corner, offering forgiveness on miss-hits while the rough textured "charged" carbon fiber ensures that the ball lingers and bites so that you can hit effortless spinning serves and crispy cut shots. Meanwhile, the midweight 7.8-ounce average weight helps you reload and play effective defense when you aren't dictating the point.
The Anna Bright Scorpeus CFS 14 Carbon Fiber Paddle from JOOLA Pickleball pairs impressive power in a standard shape with ample spin control to create a pro-level paddle that can change the course of any match.

Best paddle so far! High quality with just the right amount of pop and control. I like the 7.8 oz weight and even balance weight more towards the handle vs the paddle head. I’m a female intermediate player.

I wasn't sure about keeping the paddle after the first use, but after the second use, my game improved greatly. I have better control and can execute my shots with more precision. My friends would comment on some of my great shots, and I would tell them, it's not me the paddle just knows where the ball should go. I love this paddle.

Great power, but not lacking control. All court for sure.
An AMAZING Paddle. The BEST to date...

My first premium paddle was the CRBN 2 16mm, which was a GREAT paddle for all the reasons you read about. Unfortunately, I had some issues with the handle and replaced it with the Joola Scorpeus Anna Bright 14mm. I must say, this paddle has FAR EXCEEDED my expectations! The performance has been OUTSTANDING!!! More POP, punch, and POWER! GREAT feel and control, even on soft drops and shots. Without question, my search for a better paddle has stopped. This is my game. I highly recommend this paddle! BTW, I added 3 grams of weight on the sides of the paddle (6 grams total) and 3 grams to the top center.
Scorpeus for the win !

Well constructed and balanced paddle- great surface friction for spin and relatively light swing weight promotes hand speed and responsiveness .

This paddle is the best! Control, grit and just the right amount of pop. I’ve played the Hyperion, too soft, the power air, too poppy and not enough control. This one is just right!
