It also softens the paddle just a little, providing vibration dampening.  Read more about the new Kevlar/Carbon Fiber blend.

Customer Reviews

Based on 8 reviews

Was billed as being a power paddle and instead it is very control oriented. Resets are easy as pie but no power on the paddle.

I saw your 2 star review this morning. Thank you for your honest feedback. You may be the first person so far to think the paddle does not have power. Power in pickleball paddles is somewhat subjective, so I accept your opinion.

We built that paddle with small cell polypropylene, aramid fibers, and the blended kevlar carbon surface. Everything about that 18mm paddle design screams power. Some people do find that because the kevlar/carbon surface feels like it holds the ball a tad bit longer that the paddle feels "softer". But, to date, no one has said the paddle lacks power.

Thank you for giving our small business a try.

The Excalibur of Paddles!

Like most seriously committed players, you acquire multiple paddles to contend with varying playing styles or weather conditions, etc. I needed to replace a 20mm carbon fiber paddle, specifically designed for the bangers (I gifted it to a newbie to PB). I've never been a "Brand" guy because good companies can put out crap products. For 3 days I researched paddle after paddle and reading review after review. Every company boasted of their latest paddle tech and who's using their gear. Blah, blah, blah! But wait! I came across advert for the Body Helix x3 pro, 18mm paddle. It appeared to have the perfect balance of features and beauty, with a great price point. This paddle quickly excelled to the top of my list. There was one problem though! In the Body Helix description, it stated that this paddle is designed for 5+ players and not for beginners or intermediate players. I found myself slightly offended at their exclusive marketing of this paddle to pro level players. Somehow, what I heard was, "Scrubs need not buy." They have crossed the line, was my conclusion. They won't get my money! But, my research kept bringing me back to not just this paddle but also to this company. My aspirations to be a 5+ player compelled me to take the bait.

The paddle arrived a day earlier than expected (thank you BH). My wife and I were awestruck when pulling out the x3 pro and it's array of accessories. Words cannot express how beautifullly made this paddle is along with its plush paddle cover. It is a sight to behold! Are 5+ players a special class of people? Is this how the Aristocrats of PB live? It feels like the essence of refinement in my hand...hey Ben Johns, come get some! Just kidding.
When I actually got to the courts, I immediately felt unworthy to wield this paddle. Was this purchase a mistake and would it be obvious that the x3 pro is above my skill grade? Hard to explain, but it was very intimidating pulling this Excalibur of paddles out of my gear bag for all to see. It's beauty drew stares from all over...what is that and who is Body Helix? I couldn't believe how nervous I was... people were wanting to see what this work of art could do.

Well, I played 5 days straight, including league play and this thing it is a beast!
In my opinion, the x3 pro is designed for top tier players but its also a truth teller for all who want to be great at PB.
The x3 pro with its extend 6" handle seemed to close the gap between thought and execution. It's as though this paddle cheered me on even when I missed a shot. It's accuracy and control gave confidence that I can get the next shot. The more comfortable I became with the x3 pro the more I could stretch beyond current capacity and make difficult sliver shots. It was as though this paddle was wooing me to play above my station. Whether you're playing bangers lor dinkers, you will get the deserved respect with this paddle. I might not be a 5+ player (at the moment) but I sure make them nervous when I step on the court with this beauty!

Transitioning Tennis Player Love It!

Tennis player for 50+ years, decided to transition to pickleball. I’m not a 5.0 yet, may never make it but this paddle sure feels just right. Always had a great two hand backhand as well as one hand slice and drop, so I thought the 6” handle length was necessary and I was right. Tried lighter paddles but just couldn’t find a groove of familiarity, the 8oz X3 Pro feels like I’m swinging something. Surprised at the amount of spin I’m generating. Now if they would just allow 27 inch paddles (the length of a tennis racquet) I’d be in business!


Great paddle that is very underrated at a very reasonable price compared to other paddles in the market. More players should be aware of this paddle and the brand. I had few players hitting with it as they were intrigued and all were surprised of how responsive, powerful and balanced it was.

Great job Body Helix Team.
