I love my old Epic paddles, but this Vanguard Epic Amped is the zenith of paddles. I love it. The grip is fantastic and I have more control with the paddle. I’ve risen to a new apex as a player because of this paddle.
Way more control using this smooth feel to every hit can literally control where you put the ball easier With perfect amount of power and makes 3rd drop shots even easier
I had been playing with the Selkirk Epic Amped prior to ordering the Vanguard Epic. I have been a huge fan of the Amped paddle for many years. While the shape and dimensions are very similar the Vanguard paddle plays totally different and it took me a few times playing with it to understand how awesome of a paddle that it is! The sweet spot is literally the entire paddle face and it has allowed me to hit and make shots that i didn't posses prior to playing with it. Every time i play with it i enjoy it even more! The eye appeal is also really great but most of all it has helped to improve my game and enjoyment for the game! I have shared it with a few Selkirk fans in my club and they all agree with me, this is a game changing paddle! Nice work Selkirk and thank you for your continued focus to making great products, unparalleled support and continuing to take your products to the next level. This paddle is worth the wait! 5+ stars!
The Vanguard is amazing! It will improve your game immediately. The feel of the paddle is like nothing I have ever felt in a paddle before.The new grip was super comfortable. I felt so confident that I could place the ball exactly where I wanted it. My third shot drops were so effortless. I could roll them or cut them. The consistency was insane. No matter where I hit the ball on the paddle I got the same shot. This paddle is a game changer. It’s like nothing else out there. Get ready to take your game to another level!
