JOOLA’s Gen 3 Paddles: Advanced Technology Hits the Court

JOOLA's Gen 3 Paddles: Advanced Technology Hits the Court

As pickleball continues to capture the hearts of sports enthusiasts worldwide, innovations in equipment are enhancing how the game is played. One such breakthrough comes from JOOLA, a brand synonymous with quality and innovation. Today, I dive into their latest offering, the Gen 3 line of paddles, which includes the Hyperion, Perseus, Scorpius, and the new Magnus.

Unprecedented Technology in Pickleball

The Gen 3 paddles from JOOLA are not just any paddles; they are what many may call a revolution in pickleball technology. Each paddle is engineered with a ‘Propulsion Technology’ that integrates a polypropylene core and a carbon fiber face. This combination is not entirely new, but the way JOOLA has executed it certainly is. The edge wall foam of the paddle is designed in such a manner that it allows the core to flex almost like a catapult. This design is connected at the handle but floats at the top, providing more dwell time when the ball hits the paddle. This additional dwell time translates into more spin, power, and control over the game—truly a phenomenal advancement.

Smart Features for Advanced Play

Adding to its high-tech build, the Magnus model introduces a smart component—a NFC chip embedded in the handle. This modern touch allows players to connect their smartphones to the paddle, accessing a platform for warranty registration and a gateway to the JOOLA ecosystem. Here, players can find lessons, tips, and strategies from some of the top names in pickleball.

Performance on the Court

The paddles are available in 16 mm and 14 mm thicknesses, each suited to different styles of play. The 16 mm variant, with its longer dwell time, offers more controlled play, making it ideal for those who prefer a game based on precision and power. On the other hand, the 14 mm paddle allows for quicker, more forceful play, which might be preferable in singles matches where swift, powerful strikes are often necessary.

I tested the Magnus, and the larger face should offer an extended sweet spot that improves your play significantly. The paddle felt like an extension of my arm, and the enhanced sweet spot was particularly forgiving, making it my preferred choice.

The Future of Pickleball

While the JOOLA Gen 3 paddles set a new standard in paddle technology, they also raise questions about the direction in which the sport is headed. The increased power and speed of play these paddles introduce might necessitate a reevaluation of game regulations to ensure safety and preserve the integrity of the sport.

Priced at $279, these paddles are an investment in your pickleball future. They are available directly from I&G Pickleball now and will be hitting other retailers soon.

The JOOLA Gen 3 series is a marvel of pickleball technology, providing players with unmatched power and precision.
