Great Paddle!!

I have 4 Selkirk Paddles and I love them all! This is my go to paddle when I am playing casually and tournament league play. I have won medals playing with this paddle and have two of the same paddles, one for back up. I am Petite 5 1’’ and small hands and the paddle is perfect for me.

New Paddle

The handle is a little bit short for me. Everything else I like about the paddle control, spin, power is good. If it was 4.75 to 5 inch handle it would be perfect for me. It has a really nice feel.
