SELKIRK SPORT UNVEILS NEW TYSON MCGUFFIN SIGNATURE VANGUARD POWER AIR INVIKTA PADDLE
Coeur d'Alene, ID - June 15, 2023 – Selkirk Sport, the leading pickleball brand, is excited to announce the release of the new Tyson McGuffin Signature Vanguard Power Air Invikta paddle. This brand-new paddle offers players the ultimate power and spin paddle in a vibrant gold and white color-way, reflecting McGuffin’s dynamic and energetic style on the court.
Over two years in the making, the Vanguard Power Air Invikta has been developed in partnership with Tyson McGuffin himself, one of the world's top-ranked pickleball players. The paddle is designed to satisfy the evolving needs of both power and spin players as the sport continues to grow and diversify.
The Vanguard Power Air Invikta delivers unparalleled power with a surprising degree of control, creating shots that are difficult to return due to superior ball spin. This paddle is perfect for singles players and former tennis players seeking to dominate the pickleball court. With a larger sweet spot than traditional power paddles, it's undoubtedly the most aerodynamic paddle in Selkirk's repertoire.
The technology incorporated into the paddle has evolved from Project 002, launched in Selkirk Labs, and further enhanced based on the feedback of Labs members. Key features include enhanced control from the SuperCore, improved consistency with 360° Proto Molding, and advanced aerodynamics and edge durability with Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless technology.
Tyson McGuffin is a 5x Grand Slam Champion, 4x National Champion, and one of the top-ranked players on the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA) Tour. Utilizing a background in competitive tennis, his transition to pickleball was swift and successful, turning pro within just six months of being introduced to the game. McGuffin's commitment to the sport is evident in his performances on the court and his ongoing dedication to coaching and teaching.
"Tyson is an exciting personality and incredible advocate for the game, and we're thrilled to deliver a new signature Tyson McGuffin paddle that champions power and spin for all players," said Mike Barnes, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Selkirk Sport. "The new Tyson McGuffin Signature Vanguard Power Air Invikta will enable players to take full control of the court."
