Awesome pickleball paddle ... I LOVE it!!

I have read that it’s fairly easy and somewhat fast (compared to tennis) to get good at pickleball. But to get great, that’s a steep climb! That said, I have comfortably played pickleball for a number of months and I am an ex (really good!) tennis player! I am trying to climb that hill to being great.
That’s where this paddle comes in. I had high expectations for it, as I had read about the release a few weeks ago. This is a fabulous paddle, and exceeds my expectations! I have been using a Gearbox paddle, and am happy with that one. But this Perseus blew me away. It has a great feel, I love the grip and the balls zing off the surface. The shots are easy to control, and there is a large sweet spot that makes shot making really easy and predictable. The surface has enough of a rough surface that I can spin the ball better, creating (difficult to return) topspin balls.
I have a two-handed backhand; this grip is long enough for me to comfortably use both of my hands, getting the shots I want.
I am really happy with this paddle! It has replaced my Gearbox as the primary paddle. I can’t wait to play again tomorrow!
Love this paddle and highly recommend it!

Great paddle

One of my favorite paddles for pickle ball. The carbon fiber makes this paddle lightweight and not stain your wrists. The bounce back on this is wonderful without much effort.

Terrific new upgrade paddle with a huge sweet spot and amazing spin control

I’ve been using this paddle for several weeks now and played 50+ games with it. My previous paddle was the Ben John’s Hyperion 16 cfm which I really liked. This paddle has a very similar feel to the Hyperion and is very easy to transition to. Let’s talk about power. This has what they call a “Charged Carbon Surface” which reinforces the paddle structure and gives you superior energy return when compared to other carbon fiber pickleball paddles. You’ll get a more explosive response while being able to feel the ball and still maintain the feedback for better touch and control. It also makes a nicer “pop” sound than my other paddle.

The paddle is thermoformed and encased in carbon and that means it can stand up to hard-hitting shots with reliable play throughout its lifespan. That’s key because you hear a lot about paddles getting “worn out” or losing their energy. The carbon fiber casing provides tremendous strength and superior stability. That gives a high-performance racket and gritty surface that is long lasting, and durable over hundreds and hundreds of games.

It has a unique shape that enhances the sweet spot, allowing you to hit with accuracy and control at the net or from the baseline. That’s really the big takeaway for me - how large the sweet spot is and thus how forgiving it is in fast play.

This new paddle features a Feel-Tec Pure Grip that adds the extra feel and control you need to be fully confident in each swing. The handle grip has an element of tackiness that connects you to the paddle while the soft touch supports comfort and helps with grip endurance. Many players put their own grip wraps on, but I like this grip. The sweat gets shed by the moisture absorbing materials and perforations.

I really like the smaller 4.125 vs the Hyperion 16 4.25 grip circumference. I’m 5’9” and this fits my hand perfectly. I also like the grey handle vs white which I never cared for - it doesn’t show as much hand sweat and grunge.

Overall, I like the smaller grip for my size hands. Bigger sweet spot, controlled hits on all parts of the paddle face. More consistency on hits. A bit heavier head feel. Hits hard, feels very light overall. Really good feel on dinks.

Bottom line, I like this new paddle version better. It has power, spin and control like the Hyperion but with a better feel all around and the huge sweet spot. It’s a better version for me and it’s my go-to paddle now.

Not for everyone, but with a little tuning this is the best paddle ever

Some people mention that this paddle isn't the lightest or isn't balanced, but it you watch the video by Ben Johns on how to set this paddle up, you'll be very happy.
Yes, this seems like a lot of money to spend on paddle, but if you consider how long this paddle is going to bring you joy, it's not really that much. A good dinner out is going to cost you $50 -$100 and then it's down the drain. This paddle will last for years.
So if you can get past these two hurdles (weight, cost) everything else about this paddle is UNBELIEVABLE.
Large sweet spot (after adding weight), great control, great spin.
I play golf also, and spending this kind of money on golf equipment doesn't improve my game a noticeable amount. But regarding pickleball paddles, you equipment really can make a difference.

By far the best paddle I have used.

This is truly a professional paddle. Now, I'm not a professional but I'd sure like to play better so having the equipment is a very simple start. The build quality of the paddle is fantastic. Very durable and solid constructions. Really protected edges that hold up well to nicks, scrapes and falls well. The handle grip is very comfortable and longer like I like it. Very nice grip tape that is top notch. Perfect weight in the hand and a good, large surface area with a moderately textured finish that provides good power, spin and control. I just wish it came with a head cover or case for the price, but otherwise it is a fantastic paddle especially if you are serious about getting better.
