AvaLee by Selkirk VANGUARD 2.0 Epic Carbon Fiber Paddle
Manufactured from the best materials, and highly control-oriented, the AvaLee by Selkirk VANGUARD 2.0 Epic Paddle leverages the latest in pickleball paddle technologies to help you hit precise shots and win points. The wide 8" face is all carbon fiber, to limit vibrations and ensure consistent ball response across the htting surface. Coating this carbon fiber face is Selkirk's Pro-Spin texture that adds grit for reliable spin, plus it holds up longer than painted-on surface textures.
When you look more closely at the AvaLee VANGUARD 2.0 Epic Paddle you will see that the dimensions mirror those of the classic VANGUARD 2.0 Epic Hybrid Paddle, with a 15.75" overall length, and 5.25" long handle. Available in both midweight (7.7 to 8.2 oz.) and lightweight (7.3 to 7.8 oz.) options, with a 4.0" grip circumference (small).

A bit disappointed

The paddle handle is sticky and taped very thin layers. I had to get more tapes on it. ***PBC Response - Hi Linda, thank you for taking the time to review the paddle, and I am sorry to hear that the grip was not what you hoped it would be. Our Customer Service team would be happy to send you a new grip free of charge to improve your experience. Best, -Pickleball Central Team

Bought this paddle in 2 different colors with 2 different grips. My friend keep one and I kept the other to interchange with my Gamma Havoc. Great touch paddle with soft power behind it. No loud thwacking. The little, thin grip works perfectly in my hand. Worth the money!!!
