I have been using this paddle as my main paddle for the past month over 3 other paddles in my bag. Good power and great control. Surface grit has held up so far and provides decent spin for me. Forgiving paddle if you happen to miss hit one. Grip is nice although the white tends to get dirty fairly fast but Joola sells replacements if need be. Highly recommend!!
This paddle gives me everything I wanted. Feel, power,
maneuverability and loads of spin.
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.
