Keeping with the traditional paddle shape, the Epic AMPED combines a long handle with a large surface area. This paddle has the perfect blend of power and control—it has great balance with its longer handle that makes for great two-handed swings and a perfectly proportioned hitting area with the increased sweet spot from our Polypropylene X5 Core and FiberFlex Fiberglass hitting surface. This is our most versatile, all-around paddle for the hard-core Pickleball player. The midweight version of the Epic averages 7.9 - 8.3oz, giving you extra power for hard drives from the baseline.

The AMPED Story

Selkirk AMPED Power + Control Ad

Weight Guide Overview

Lightweight ~ Quicker Hand Speed

A Lightweight paddle gives you quicker hands increasing your control and speed at the net.

Midweight ~ More Power

A midweight paddle generates more power making it perfect for hard drives and blocking shots.

Singles vs Doubles Paddles

Doubles is most often played at the net which means a lightweight paddles’ quickness will give you an advantage. Whereas using a midnight paddle for singles is advantageous because of its extra power.

Choosing by Comfort

In the end, choose the weight that feels best to you. If you don't know which weight is most comfortable, go with the lightweight version. Unless you are a Tennis player with a power game, the lightweight version is preferred by most players.

Why do Paddles Have a Weight Range?

The very slightest elements can affect the weight, a little more adhesive used on this paddle, a little less grip length on this one. It’s nearly impossible to make paddles to a very specific weight every time. And 0.1oz is really not much of a change as described below.

How Much is 0.1oz?

A penny weighs about 0.1oz. And a 0.1oz weight difference in a paddle does not affect the performance or feel of a paddle, even for top Pickleball athletes.

How Much Does a Difference in Weight Matter?

Some people tend to think they need a very specific weight or the paddle won't play right. This simply is not true. Even top Pros are not very picky about their paddle weight because they know slight weight differences do not affect the performance of a paddle.

Guaranteed Weight Range

Even though slight differences in weight do not affect most players game, we do recommend that advanced and pro players take advantage of our guaranteed weight range option. You can select a guaranteed weight range to receive a paddle within a 0.2oz difference (e.g. 7.4-7.6oz).
