Ben Johns Signature


Skill : Advanced

Style : power

Ben Johns is the Michael Jordan of pickleball and this is his paddle. It's ideal for players looking to generate real power without sacrificing much control or spin. Our best guess for the low price-point is that it's made by sporting goods behemoth Franklin—it could easily sell for more.
