AMPED Maxima Midweight | X5 Core and FiberFlex Face for Power + Control and a larger sweetspot.

AMPED Maxima Lightweight

The AMPED™ Maxima Paddle was co-designed with Morgan Evans. The power player’s paddle! Engineered with a longer handle and paddle face, the Maxima’s long reach makes it perfect for driving the ball. We utilized our FiberFlex™ Fiberglass face and Polypropylene X5 Core™ Technology to increase power, stability and control while at the same time increasing the sweet spot and ability to impart spin. The midweight version of the Maxima averages 7.8-8.2oz giving you extra power for hard drives from the baseline.

From the Pros

Morgan Evans

"There is something to be said for a paddle that pushes the limits, that challenges the status quo. The Maxima does what its name suggests, it reaches the maximum length and width combination, in style.The added thickness gives the paddle comfort and control while expanding the sweet spot towards the finely chiseled edge guard.  The rounded head provides a perfectly uniform sweet spot, while the streamlined tapered throat allows this weapon to cut through the air like a hot knife through butter."

Devin Shoquist

"The AMPED Maxima Midweight has greatly enhanced my control and confidence for outdoor play. It's a paddle that has lived up to all the hype, and exceeded my expectations. The Selkirk line of AMPED paddles, in general, has been game-changing for many players I know. "

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).

Midweight (7.8 - 8.2oz) ~ More Power

If you are looking for a little bit lighter paddle, take a look at our AMPED Maxima Lightweight. A lightweight paddle gives you faster hands at the net but has less power compared to a midweight paddle.
