JOOLA Ben Johns Perseus 3 16mm Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle

The JOOLA Ben Johns Perseus Pickleball Paddle is designed with one thing in mind: domination. As the signature pickleball paddle of the current world #1 player, Ben Johns, this paddle boasts features that cater to the aggressive, power-hungry game. Let's delve into the key aspects and see if Perseus lives up to its champion's legacy.

The centerpiece of the Perseus is the all-new Propulsion Core (Patent Pending). This innovative core promises explosive power, translating to hard-hitting drives, sharp counters, and blazing paddle speed. This translates well for players who rely on an offensive style and want to overpower their opponents.

Paddle Benefits

Lightweight Maneuverability Despite the focus on power, JOOLA hasn't sacrificed maneuverability. The paddle features a Lightweight Aluminum Butt End Cap. This sheds unnecessary weight without compromising on stability, allowing for quick reflexes and faster swings at the net.

Tech-Savvy Features

The Perseus isn't just about brute force; it incorporates some interesting technological features. Embedded within the handle is an NFC Chip. Tapping your phone on the handle unlocks an exclusive experience through the JOOLA Connect app (details not yet available). This could potentially offer personalized coaching tips, game stats, or exclusive content – a neat perk for fans of Ben Johns or JOOLA products.

Early Verdict: A Paddle Built for Offense

The JOOLA Ben Johns Perseus Pickleball Paddle is a clear statement – it prioritizes power and aggressive play. The innovative Propulsion Core and lightweight design seem geared toward those who overwhelm opponents with powerful drives and volleys. 

Paddle Benefits

This paddle is ideal for advanced or professional players who have an offensive style of play and rely on powerful hits. Beginners or those who prefer a more controlled game might find the Perseus a bit too aggressive.

As the paddle of the world's best player, the JOOLA Ben Johns Perseus Pickleball Paddle carries high expectations. It delivers on the power promise, with its innovative core and lightweight design perfect for aggressive players. The tech features are interesting but remain to be fully explored. If you're an advanced player looking to unleash your inner champion on the court, the Perseus is definitely worth considering.



JOOLA warrants the paddles to be free from major defects in workmanship and materials when used for the intended purpose under normal use and conditions FOR A PERIOD OF 6 MONTHS FROM THE DATE OF RECEIPT ON ORIGINAL PURCHASE* in the United States and Canada. The warranty is non-transferable and only valid to the original purchaser. The warranty does not apply to replacement paddles. Registration on is required within 14 days of purchase to be eligible for the warranty policy. This warranty covers all manufacturer defects, missing parts, and workmanship.

So far so good! Jorge Riestra Intermediate

Pros: Compared to my Hyperion and Diadem Edge this is my favorite so far. Has a great feel. Can control my dinks and placement is better. I am able to control my spin shots better. Sweet spot is sweet. Feels softer.

Cons: Only concern might be how durable it will be. The guard seems to be a little more friable. Carbon fiber surface to be determined.

About the Brand

JOOLA has dominated the professional table tennis scene in the United States for over 10 years. Partnering with North American Table Tennis (NATT) early on, JOOLA established a strong presence through the North American Tour and NATT‘s flagship event, the North American Teams Championships. Each event in the Tour generally drew in 200 to 300 participants and showcased about 30 JOOLA tables, while the Teams event exposed the brand to nearly 1000 players, who competed on about 150 JOOLA tables. With each successful event, JOOLA grew its fan base and eventually became the most visible table tennis brand in US table tennis.

Beginning in 2012, JOOLA officially began a partnership with USA Table Tennis (USATT), the national governing body for table tennis. Through this agreement JOOLA became the Official Table Sponsor of USATT Tournaments, including the US Open and US National Championships. Held annually during the winter, the US Open attracts international players from all over the world, while the US National Championships is always filled with top US players competing for US titles every summer. Both competitions are major table tennis events in the US and are the association’s two largest gatherings of the sport’s enthusiasts nationwide. Both USATT and JOOLA are genuinely excited about this partnership and hope to further drive table tennis development in the US for generations to come!

In 2019, Sport Squad, Inc., the US-based distributor and licensee of JOOLA for the North American and Brazilian market., announced its acquisition of JOOLA Tischtennis GmbH. Established in 2006 and based in Rockville, MD, Sport Squad, Inc. was founded by Richard Lee out of a love for table tennis. Sport Squad eventually expanded to include 4 different brands dedicated to offering interactive and immersive games and gaming equipment. It is the parent company to JOOLA, iPong, Sport Squad, and Hit Mit. To learn more about Sport Squad, Inc., check out Sport Squad’s website.

With a renewed energy, the JOOLA logo was redesigned and released in 2020 to reflect JOOLA’s continued commitment to excellence. The new stylized J symbolizes a new era and the 3 pillars of the brand as JOOLA strives to take table tennis into the future.
