Paddle is solid, quiet and reactive with a big sweet spot and no dead areas. First upgrade from beginner (cheap) paddle so take with a grain of salt, but seems to be a power paddle that would appeal to tennis players due to length and power, where I (a ping pong player) might be happier with a shorter/lighter higher spin paddle. But again, new to paddles and may grow into it. No negatives to speak of, just not sure a fit for my style of play.
I have been playing for 6 years and always play with the high end or top pro choices for paddles. Helix impressed me first and foremost with their braces and devotion to helping those with injuries. When I realized they were jumping into the pickleball equipment...I bought their balls and loved them. I play hard and have medaled in 6 different states in various tournaments. I know the game.
The paddle: When it comes in the mail the presentation begins with the packaging. The paddle is special and Helix treats it as such. As soon as you put it in your hands you know and feel the confidence. My NVZ or kitchen play is better and I have more paddle to go after those defensive lob shots. The pop is noticeable, and the paddle attracts attention. I just figured if Helix built a paddle it must be unique and worth a try....I am very,very pleased. Rick HSV Ark
Fits perfectly plus they last for ever! I use mine all the time (for tennis and soccer).
I have now purchased 4 of the knee compression brace . I was talked into buying the first one at a tournament , but honestly had little faith it would help . It seemed so light and minimal but I played the rest of the tournament with it on and my knee felt good. I questioned myself if it was me telling myself it worked since I paid more than I thought I should for it. But I have kept wearing it and it’s the best piece of adaptive equipment I have ever bought so now I have 4 . My fear is that they will change it lol .. do I’m stock piling . It really works !!
So I was using the SLK control and I loved it. Helix is the SLK with control AND power. Absolutely amazing more power less errors watch out everybody.
It is a good quality product. I bought my first thigh support about five years ago and was able to see in the label where I bought it from. The original one is still in good condition and the new one looks to be of the same quality.
Good support for elbow tendinitis
Helps with torn calf —able to play pickleball !
Same day, tried the X-1. Same day, bought the X-1. The same day I brought home a medal in 4.0+ singles using the X-1. Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!
I'm turning 73 and still teach fitness classes. I've tried numerous bulky shoulder braces but they all inhibited movement. I bought a small and then bought a medium since the small seemed a tiny bit too tight. I find I sweat profusely while wearing it but I guess that is what it's supposed to do to hold it against your skin. It's very easy to wash and dries quickly hung up. I wear it under my sports bra
Body Helix never disappoints. The service was an exceptional experience. Received the product in a quick manner and loved showing off the new gear. Thank you for outstanding execution.
The Body Helix X-1 paddle is amazing. The paddle has great power and feel without losing the control and spin you need in the non volley (kitchen) zone. I had been playing with a more expensive paddle before but the Body Helix is by far superior to it.
I have only been able to use the new paddle twice but so far I am extremely happy with it. I am looking forward to more play!
I have used my Body Helix X-1 paddle a couple of times now. I like the weight, size of grip and overall feel when striking the ball. I have not tried the magnets yet but plan to give them a try. I really like the paddle.
Very comfortable and easy to wear while playing. Highly recommend wearing eye protection to avoid serious eye injuries that can be prevented.
