New s2 vanguard hybrid

I love my new paddle. I am a level three player who has been playing for a year. I love this paddle. The sweet spot is amazing and the surface gives good spin control. My shots are faster and more consistent. I got the mid weight and it is heavier than I am used to but I only notice it at the end of my play. I liked it the first time I played with it and although expensive I would recommend it if you can afford it.

Best Paddle Made

I just got my Vanguard S-2 Hybrid through an outside source because they are back ordered at Selkirk. I am a 4.0 player and having been using the S-2 Amped, which is a great paddle. I have always been skeptical of new equipment hype because in golf and skiing it is really the old stuff with a face lift. Not so with this. I started practice with old S-2 Amped so I could give the Vanguard a fair evaluation. When I switched to the Vanguard it was amazing. Your crushing serves stay in. At the net, you can lift shots that are below the net, put serious pace on it, with top spin, and keep it in. Miss hits on the end of the paddle are like you hit the sweet spot. Anything in the green zone is an automatic put away. Forehand and backhand shots feel the same. It is truly worth the money. To sum it up, if you are playing a player of similar ability and he/she is using the Vanguard and you're're going to get beat, I don't care what brand you are using.

I have been playing my Vanguard S2 paddle for 2 months now word to describe how it plays “superb”. This paddle is hybrid and that’s how it really plays. I have been using Selkirk paddles for 2 years now (amped) and the Vanguard so far gives me both what I need... both control and power!!!!! Top of the line for sure.... you get what you paid for!!!!

This paddle is awesome!

I’ve been playing with the new Vanguard S2 paddle for a couple of weeks and absolutely love it. My previous paddle was the Amped S2. The upgrade to Vanguard was worth the cost. The Vanguard has much improved spin rates than the Amped, velocity on shots is higher, and I love the feel and control I have everywhere on the court. This is an awesome paddle!

Game changer

I have played with the vanguard hybrid mid-weight for a week now. It has improved every shot I have. It has improved my slow game, fast game and every shot in between. I highly recommend this paddle. It is hard to believe but well worth the money.

The S2 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.
