I absolutely love my new X-2 paddle. It has awesome spin, great control and a lot of power. I reached out to customer service with a question and got a response the same day. Looks like I made the right choice to go with Body Helix.
I am an older male who took up Pickleball 2 years ago. Suffered multiple calf strains my first year each taking a longer time to heal. Was given this calf sleeve by a tennis playing friend. It keeps my calf warm and loose and have had no more problems since I started wearing it. Purchasing a spare/replacement in case this one ever wears out.
The X-2 Pro has to be the most balanced premium paddle on the market. It packs the strongest punch and spin of any paddle i've ever used. The crazy part is that it also provides the player with an unrivaled balance of control and consistency. Love the 18mm thickness and the genius design will allow you to easily adapt your game to any pace any skill level for both singles and doubles.
I switched from another premium "thermoformed' paddle and was surprised by how easy the transition has been in the first couple of games. Hate to say it - this paddle really does all the work but with half the effort! The consistency is like no other, which really helps with the delivering the perfect FEEL..
Highly recommend if you are looking to take your game to the next level!
This paddle is incredible if you know how to use it. It is great for former tennis players due to the handle length and head heaviness, however it does require pretty high skill level so may not be suited for newer players. I think the theme of the X2 Pro should really be “less is more” as balls will FLY off the paddle if you don’t learn to control it.
It has ridiculous spin & power, outstanding build quality, and clearly proprietary tech that really stands out in a highly saturated market. It is very heavy, but it’s not heavy just for the sake of being heavy. The fact that the extra weight is actually built into the core (vs lead tape on outside) is actually noticeable, as it provides a much more substantive contact with the ball and adds to the feel of “solidness” when you hit. Soft game does require some getting used to, but drops and dinks only took a few minutes during warmup to get comfortable with, and the extra power actually makes drops easier once you learn to do less. Mid court resets are EXCELLENT as you just need to get the paddle in the right spot and the paddle will do all the work for you. Ball falls right into the kitchen with very little effort.
Overall, this is a really, really well built paddle that might take some getting used to, but is an absolute WEAPON in the right players hands.
