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

AMPED Omni Midweight

The elongated shape of the Omni allows players to perform advanced shots and cover all the court. With specs and shape designed by Glen Peterson, the AMPED™ Omni utilizes our X5 Core™ and EdgeSentry™ AMPED technologies along with our FiberFlex™ face. A long reach paddle designed for control. The Omni’s shorter handle increases surface area, allowing for a slightly wider face than typical elongated paddles and a larger sweet spot. The shorter handle also makes it perfect for anyone who likes to put their finger on the paddle while playing. The midweight version of the Omni averages 7.8-8.2oz giving you extra power for hard drives from the baseline.

From the Pros

Glen Peterson

"I'm convinced that the AMPED technology with the thicker X5 core is the best core technology available on the market today. I love it and think that a lot of people are going to find this paddle absolutely fantastic for their game. With the AMPED paddle's thicker core, I get more stability and the ball comes off more consistently. When I’m looking for a Pickleball Paddle, I’m looking for a paddle that looks good, feels good, and sounds good. I believe the AMPED X5 core is the best core technology available on the market today. "

Doug Hastings

"The shortened handle of the AMPED Omni is the perfect match for me because I like to choke up on the paddle for better feel and control, while still maximizing the extra length of the total paddle. The AMPED Omni is also the perfect paddle to bridge a Singles and Doubles player's paddle. It's the porridge that is just right."

Anne Britt

"I've been a fan of the AMPED Omni since it came out because it allowed me to reach balls I wouldn't have otherwise. Now, I love the AMPED Omni even more because the 8-oz weight gives me more power without sacrificing control in my soft shots. "

Doug Koch

"Love my Selkirk AMPED Omni Midweight paddle! Great solid feel (no vibration) with a large sweet spot for blocking volleys, outstanding power on serves and overheads, control for placing returns and 3rd shot drops on a dime, and extra length for those angled putaways. It has improved both my Doubles and Singles games. "

Kim Jagd

"The multi-faceted AMPED Omni Midweight gives me touch for blocking and dinking, and power for drives and attacking. Plus, I love the extra length for overheads and reaching into the non-volley zone. "

Irene Mah

"I love my AMPED Omni 8.0 paddle. I belong to the Elite 5.0 Club, aka 5 Feet 0 Inches Club! This paddle comes with more power, control, and makes you a taller player! I have a racquetball background, so this makes my backhand deadly. "

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).
