Middleweight/Small Grip

Ben Johns Hyperion C2 16mm Carbon Fiber Paddle

Building on the success of both the original Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 graphite paddle and the 16mm Perseus carbon fiber paddle, the next-generateion JOOLA Ben Johns Hyperion C2 16mm Pickleball Paddle offers top-of-the-line control and balanced power to help you dictate play on the court. The 16mm (0.63") thick Reactive Honeycomb Core encircled by a Hyperfoam Edge Wall is back to provide vibration dampening, a nearly edge-to-edge sweet spot, and plenty of stability. New to this iteration is a carbon frame to provide extra durability, virtually eliminating breakage.

The Ben Johns Hyperion C2 16mm Paddle from JOOLA Pickleball also sees the return of the 11" long by 7.5" wide Carbon Friction Surface, though in the C2 it is reinforced with Charged Carbon Surface technology. This additive bonding treatment ratchets up the energy return for pop and power, without limiting the spin and ball dwell time provided by the Carbon-Flex5 coated carbon fiber face. Both the core and the hitting surface live at the end of a familiar 5.5" long handle, arriving wrapped in a comfy Feel-Tec Pure grip which helps your reach, and teams up with the Aero-curve shape to create a higher swing speed plow-through.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8"

    I love this paddle. My previous paddle was the earlier generation model, which I also liked but it cracked at the connection between the head and the handle. The C2 is a unibody construction and supposedly won't be as prone to breaking at the neck. I like the blend of touch, control and power of this paddle. It's just right for my style of play.

    Great paddle until the handle breaks. 12 of us bought Joolas and they all broke at the same spot at the neck of the handle in the 7 to 9-month time frame. Joola told us all we were on our own, no guarantee after 6 months. We all switch back to Selkirk so we could get something that lasts.


  • Great Paddle!

    Good spin, nice extra pop and light compared to the previous hyperion
