JOOLA Ben Johns Perseus CFS 16mm Textured Carbon Fiber Control Paddle

Full video review of the Ben Johns Perseus CFS 16 Pickleball Paddle!

The long-awaited follow up to the first immensely successful Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16 paddle, the Ben Johns Perseus CFS 16 Carbon Fiber Paddle delicately pairs power and control to help you play to your highest potential. This 8.0-ounce paddle pairs a powerful elongated shape with a thick but poppy 16mm (0.63") core. The 11" by 7.5" Carbon Friction Surface and 5.5" long handle create the elongated shape that adds leverage and power, while the thick core and stiff "charged" carbon fiber face cause the ball to compress and linger just a tad longer which helps you control the ball and add spin that keeps it within the lines. The two-hander-friendly handle arrives wrapped in JOOLA's tacky Sure Grip and works with the elongated shape to help you create even more swing speed on drives and overheads.

The 16mm Reactive Honeycomb Polymer core at the heart of the Perseus CFS 16 paddle is what allows this paddle to provide you ultimate control in addition to the elongated power. This core uses a honeycomb design and injected hyperfoam around the edges, and thermoformed construction to properly pair pop with vibration dampening and a large sweet spot that helps you dink with precision, control passing shots, and place your returns deep in the court. Meanwhile, the 1/8" edge guard overlapping the paddle face protects the hitting surface to keep this paddle in tip top shape throughout a long season.

The Ben Johns Perseus CFS 16 Carbon Fiber Paddle from JOOLA Pickleball provides the power and control you would expect from a paddle with Ben's name on it.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

    I like paddle but after 3 days of play my arm and shoulder is sore. Not sure if it is the weight. Recommendations appreciated.

  • Excellent control and spin. Slightly weak on power for me,corrected with lead tape as suggested by Ben Johns.

    Lead tape improved sweet spot

    Really like this paddle- excellent power and spin and very wide sweet spot allowing for off center hits to still be effective. Balance is a little head heavy, helps me keep the head down which I need.

    Compared to kids/adults that invest into computers /mouse/keyboard for gaming - $235 is nothing. It is worth every penny! This paddle has such good control and spin - it makes my topspin serve so so much better! It has a good balance of power & control - longer handle is good for those 2 handed dinks and or backhand drives. I could not be happy with the Paddle and shot out to PickleBallCentral - it arrived in 3 days after purchase via USPS.

    Solid, great control and power. Love it!


  • Great power and control

    This paddle gave me a huge improvement in both power and control. It allows me to spin the ball at much higher RPM when I cut it, dink it with better feel, and hit deep with ease.

    Great paddle, awesome control and some decent power! Overall I would like to see this paddle at $200 but still worth it.
