I've had my Joola CAS 16MM for about 10days of playing, I really like how consistent the ball is from this paddle.
My spin and touch shots are great as well as my power/drives.
I've had the Ben Johns Franklin 13mm and 16mm paddles for about a year,playing indoors and out.
I feel the Joola Ben Johns has better control and I don't feel the off sweet spot hits as much, the ball still goes on intended target.
I have been using JOOLA table tennis products for over a decade with huge success, unmatched quality and amazing for my game. Having A similar pickleball game, one where I use a lot of spin and touch, this paddle is amazing! No BS, if you're looking for the newest in technology and research, along with a huge name behind it, GO with JOOLA!
I have used this paddle for 30 days and participated in two 4.0 doubles tournaments in Orlando Area. This paddle did not disappoint; it complemented my play and helped me earn 3 medals: 2 gold and 1 silver. Once you get used to power of this paddle then success is not far from you.
