Paddle Design and Technology

The CAS 16 features a unique facing and core combination that sets it apart from other JOOLA paddles. Its facing material is a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber, with a carbon fiber layer stacked on top of a fiberglass layer to give the paddle more pop and power. This is paired with a Responsive core, which has larger polymer honeycomb cells to add feel to the paddle.

One of the most distinctive features of the Joola Hyperion CAS 16 paddle is its Carbon Abrasion Surface (CAS). Unlike the CFS 16, which has a built-in texture, the CAS 16 has a sandpaper-like texture that’s laid on top of the carbon fiber. This texture enhances spin and control, making it easier to execute shots with precision.

Performance Summary

So how does the Joola CAS 16 perform on the court? According to our testing, it’s a solid choice for players looking for control and touch. The paddle absorbs the ball well, allowing for controlled shots and pace of play. The sweet spot is decently sized, though not as forgiving as some other paddles.

Despite being categorized as a control paddle, the CAS 16 still packs some power thanks to its fiberglass facing layer. This adds an extra punch to drives and other power shots. Spin is also a standout feature, though it’s worth noting that the sandpaper-like grit on the paddle wears down faster than other textures.


All in all, the JOOLA Ben Johns Hyperion CAS 16 Pickleball Paddle is a high-quality choice for intermediate and advanced players looking to enhance their control and touch on the court. Its Hybrid-Ply Technology and Carbon Abrasion Surface provide a unique combination of power, spin, and control, while the Response Polymer Honeycomb Core adds durability and performance. With its sleek design and durable Edge Guard Technology, the CAS 16 is sure to be a top pick for pickleball enthusiasts everywhere. Order yours today and elevate your game to the next level!
