I LOVE my new paddle!

This paddle was recommended for me since it was light weight and still offered better control. I am getting spin the ball without even trying on my backhand shots. That wasn’t happening at all with my previous paddle.

My game is more consistent. I’ve been told almost everyone I’ve been playing with that I’m ready to move up a level in my league play.

I ordered a custom grip and I’m glad I did. I was able to ditch the glove. It’s too hot in southern Florida to wear gloves.

I LOVE my new paddle.

Precision with some power

I’ve been playing for 3yrs and have only used Selkirk paddles. I started with the Vanguard S2 mid weight, Omni lightweight, Mach 6 lightweight and then the Invikta power air. I was very comfortable with the power air until I started playing 3.5-4.5. I then realize I needed more control and less Power. This Vanguard Control Epic is absolutely perfect for me. The spin is great. The pop is good and I can generate my own power. Three other people that I play with in our group of 20 have converted over to the Vanguard control from the power air. I LOVE IT!!!!

Awesome Paddle

The Selkirk Vanguard Control Invikta is awesome! I had already owned the epic version and enjoy playing with that due to an enlarged sweet spot. Once I got the Invicta, I added it to 4 ounce strips of tungsten on each side. WOW!

Take a great paddle, dial it in to your preferences and my only regret is I can only play pickleball a few times a week.

Selkirk makes great products. I am a true fan. Also, their growth program was kind enough to make a donation to my local community college. Selkirk is the best!
