The Selkirk AMPED S2 pickleball paddle continues the tradition of a standard shape, yet it boasts the largest surface area of all of our paddles. The S2 was the brainchild of US Open Silver Medalist, Tony Tollenaar. With a shorter handle than the Epic, the S2 has a larger surface area on the face of the paddle. In fact, the S2 has the largest sweet spot in the Pickleball industry. The extra large surface area improves the overall power and control of the paddle, giving every shot more consistency.

If you are a hardcore Pickleball player that doesn’t mind a slightly shorter handle, the S2 is your paddle.

So far so Good!

So far, this paddle has been the best I've had - right out of the box. Usually, I end up modifying my paddle with some weight strips to add stability and/or add some power. I may end up doing that with this paddle as well, but it felt and played pretty good right out of the box. I expect that to only get better as I get more comfortable and experienced with the paddle. As usual Selkirk's customer service with this purchase was excellent! And I received my paddle in just 3 days with just the normal shipping, which was much sooner than expected. Paddle on!!

Awesome paddle

I’m a small woman and the texture on this paddle helps me get more spin and it’s also lightweight to keep me injury free as I m not very strong to handle heavier paddles

Amped x5 Invikta review

I love this paddle. It is my third one over the years. Hope they never stop making it!

Selkirk has been a great organization to work with when issues arise. It has more grit than before and improves my spin game.

Good all around paddle

For me the paddle seems to have a very good balance on control and power. Compared to my other paddles, the ball seems to stay on the paddle longer for better control of your shots. Paddle also seems to generate enough power for my serves and quick drives. I had added some lead tape around the four/five and seven/eight positions and added another wrap around the handle to increase the circumference. Paddle feels and plays great!
