Excellent!

I’m a senior woman with some physical limitations. I ordered the lightweight and I love it! The only thing that I wish was just a little more power… I still gave this paddle five stars- it is my fourth Selkirk over the last six years-

Largest sweetspot ever

The vanguard control epic (lightweight) paddle has the largest sweetspot ever. As a player with table tennis background, the vanguard control has a nice touch and I can complete my shot with maximum dwelling time to generate spin.

One minor feedback is that the raw carbon paddle, I still need to clean the paddle after use. As the paddle is black and white, the dirt collected on the paddle was too obvious to be seen.
