Hands down the best paddle I’ve ever used. I was on the market for a new paddle for some time now and even demoed a few different brands. The $200 price tag raised my eyebrows a bit, but I figured why not try it out and if I don’t like it, I’d just return it with the 30-day guarantee. Even after my first game, I noticed a drastic improvement in my game. My serves and drives are gnarly with this thing my ***** go exactly where I want them to and my 3rd shot goes over the net with ease. The paddle does flake a bit after a few games, but that’s the nature of carbon fiber and it’s nothing to be concerned over. I ended up buying another one the next day as my wife kept stealing it for her games!
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.
