After 3 years of being sponsored by Franklin and playing with his Franklin Ben Johns Signature Pickleball Paddle, the best men’s pickleball player in the world, Ben Johns, has changed paddle sponsor, and, as of April 1, 2022, has officially made public a new paddle sponsorship deal with JOOLA. (Although this new paddle sponsorship was made public on April 1, 2022, this is no April Fools joke!)
A leader in table tennis and ping pong products since 1952, JOOLA has now entered the pickleball paddle space with a bang! Ben will be playing with the Joola Ben Johns Hyperion CFS 16mm Pickleball Paddle and it is now available for purchase.
PickleballMAX partners with Fromuth Pickleball for your paddle needs!

The following video outlines the thought process of Ben Johns and why he chose JOOLA as his paddle sponsor.
Ben Johns JOOLA Hyperion CAS Paddle Features
Ben had a hand in developing the new paddle. The Ben Johns Hyperion CAS paddle features a Carbon Abrasion Surface (CAS) that creates a unique, textured surface for increased spin. It has a Response Honeycomb Polymer Core that provides reduced vibration and a generous sweet spot. Additionally, the paddle has an aero curve, a hyperfoam edge wall, and an elongated handle.
