From the Pros

Tony Tollenaar

"Selkirk got it right again with the new AMPED S2 design. This unique paddle shape optimizes the playing surface with an even larger than before sweet spot allowing for improved accuracy and control. If you are looking for a paddle that will improve your execution on all shots, the AMPED S2 is for you."

Dee Davison

"I’ve played with the Onix Indoor, Onix Pure 2 & Dura Fast 40. I believe this paddle neutralizes the Ball Controversy for players! The paddle is solid anywhere I hit the ball, no matter what ball I use. It feels the same onto and off the paddle. Therefore, I can forget about the extreme property differences of the balls (too soft, too bouncy, too hard) and just concentrate on perfecting my stroke pattern and approach to the ball!

Cammy MacGregor

"I love the fiberglass face because of the soft feel I get with it on my dinks. It has good control, but also has good pop on it when I need to hit the drive shot or hard volley."

Miok Lee

"I love my new AMPED S2!—I was able to adjust my play immediately! It gave me more control over my soft game but still had the power for my put away shot."

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).
