I am delighted to announce that I took out the Gold in the 3.5 Men's 50+ Singles at the 2022 NSW Open, with a lot of thanks to my new paddle!
This recent review on the Pickleball Central website posted by a pickler from Nevada, USA, sums up my thoughts on the Armour Helio Composite paddle perfectly:
"Nice combo of power, control and spin
This paddle hits the Goldilocks spot for me: adequate power to put balls away; great control for transition zone resets and dinking; above average spin for topspin serves and yellow zone rolls at the NVZ line. The paddle plays like a control paddle at low swing speeds, but adds some pop with compact drives and sharp volleys. The sweet spot is generous and off-center hits are well tolerated. Construction quality seems good."
