This paddle in all honesty may be the best on the market. With its two layer of carbon as well as it’s bigger sweet spot, my control, spin, and power on the ball has been at an all time high. I feel more confident stepping onto the court and I feel way more relaxed because I can trust my strokes. Definitely recommend this paddle to anyone looking to buy a new paddle.
It's absolutely wonderful, wish I had it much earlier.
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).
