Top 3 Issues Coaches See In Intermediates


Lack control

Can't generate enough spin

Seem to be stuck at your current level

A Better Paddle Matters

A high-quality paddle takes your game to the next level. Our control paddles complement these efforts. They offer a responsive surface that enables consistent control and feel while maintaining top-tier power and spin. With a balanced weight distribution, they are easy to maneuver, helping you reduce errors and execute your strokes flawlessly.

  • Consistent Control
  • More Power and Spin
  • Enhanced Touch
  • Balanced for Quickness



Control, more than power, is how players level-up. The elongated paddle shape is designed for control.  This is a paddle that can grow with you from the 3.0 level all the way up to 4.5.  As your skills increase, you will unleash the spin level of this paddle which will help you to control the ball,  control the point, and control the game.


2-Handed Power


The X3 Lite is a great choice for players coming from tennis.  The longer 6” handle enables a true 2-handed backhand and helps tennis players to generate power through leverage.  The kevlar surface is designed to provide more spin, which as the player improves will translate to incredible control.  Buy this paddle if you utilize a 2-handed backhand or forehand.


Spin It To Win It


The X4 paddles are designed to level up all of your strokes.  Suited for players 3.5 and above, this paddle will really shine once you master control and are ready to use spin along with power to improve your overall game.  In a 14mm for quickness and pop and 16mm thickness for power, this paddle will grow with you to 4.5 and beyond.

  • Always keep your paddle in its cover when not is use.
  • Be sure to use the eraser to remove ball debris that will accumulate.
  • Do not keep you paddle in your car if the inside temps will be very cold or very hot.
  • Do not hit anything other than a pickleball with your paddle.
  • Do not submerge your paddle in water or use a wet cloth on the face.
  • Avoid paddle tapping, even though it seems cool. This could damage the surface. If you want to do a tap, use the butt of your paddle.

LaurelSecret Weapon!

The X1 paddle has demonstratively elevated my level of play! Power, control, plush feel … cannot recommend it highly enough!

BrettX4 14mm Power!

Been trying out every Body Helix paddle until this one just fit like a glove. Great power and Spin. Being a body helix, you know it will last longer than any other paddle at a great price.

MehlX3 Lite

The helix X3 lite was a good fit for me. It felt like an extension of my arm and very balanced. It was light to play with but the action on the paddle added power that I wasn't expecting which was great.

GrantBest Hidden Gem On The Pddle Market

The X3 lite plays similar to the Six Zero DBD 16mm but has a bit more dwell time on the paddle face (probably due to the Kevlar). It has great control but still has a ton of pop and an insane amount of spin. I didn’t use the paddle at first due to some upcoming tournaments and being so used to my DBD but once I gave it a chance it really impressed me. The longer handle allows for excellent control on top spin backhand dinks and resets but can be tricky to get used to at first. The sweet spot is a decent size but a little higher up due to the space taken by the extra handle length but that’s a trade off that I’m fine with. Overall if you’re looking for a thermoformed paddle with a 6in handle this is the way to go.

J.K.Love it! 14mm vs 16mm

I switched from the 16mm to the 14mm seamlessly! I get the extra power from the 14mm with the same amount of control from the 16mm. From the serves & returns to the dinks and resets, the X-4 allows for swift movements anywhere on the court! I recently started training singles and the paddle is great to create the spin and power for passing shots and overhead put always. I can’t say enough good things about this paddle! AND you can’t forget about the highest quality paddle cover and wonderful staff!!

AnnetteTournament Champs!

Used my new paddle today for the first time in a tournament. We got the GOLD. By far the best paddle I’ve used. Would definitely recommend this paddle. X-1


I have been using my X-1 for almost 1 month now and I am thoroughly enjoying this paddle. The combination of spin, control, and power is on point. I executed a drop shot with the X-1 that spun back into the net before my opponent could get to it! I also give props to Body Helix for including the eraser and weights, which are very nice additions that other companies typically charge extra for. Great purchase!
