Selkirk LUXX Control Air Epic Carbon Fiber Paddle
In a pickleball world full of power and speed (see the VANGUARD Power Air Epic paddle), the Selkirk LUXX Control Air Epic Pickleball Paddle offers controllable relief that helps you dictate points and play your way. The 20mm (0.79") Thikset Honeycomb core is at the center of this controllable feel. Originally tested in the Selkirk Labs Project 003, this super thick core is reinforced with a FlexFoam perimeter to offer an impressively consistent feel across the face, an expansive sweet spot, and fantastic durability all without completely sacrificing power.
Constructed with a 360-degree Proto Molding process, the LUXX Control Air Epic Paddle from Selkirk boasts a 10.75" by 7.9" Florek Carbon Fiber face with an aerodynamic edgeless design. This surface teams up with the ample core technologies to further enhance the sweet spot and ensure consistent strikes. The ProSpin+ NextGen Texture adds a durable surface that grabs the ball and imparts impressive spin on your cuts, topspin serves, and anything else you can cook up with your control game. Add the reach of the 5.25" long handle at the net and you have a paddle that will help you out-think and out-work your power-happy opponents.

Could be the best on the market

First things first - I'm not sure there's a better Control paddle on the market at the moment, and I've tried a lot of them - JOOLA, Carbon, Diadem, etc. But be prepared, this is strictly a Control-oriented paddle. If you're looking for straight power this is definitely not for you. That said, and if you read or watch any good reviewer, they'll tell you to add some lead tape to add to the swing weight and thus create more power that way. I've done that myself and it 100% helps. It also helps increase the sweet spot. I do not think this paddle is for beginners or those simply trying to improve their game. It's designed for a really good 3.5/4.0+ player. The resets are so easy and the touch at the net is great.

I liked the smooth edge. However if the ball hit close to the edge the paddle seemed to reduce power. Occasionally the ball hit the Smile hole and would mess up the shot. I liked the feel of the paddle and the surface texture. I decided the paddle was not for me.***PBC Response*** Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

I've been trying out the Luxx Epic paddle for a few days now and I think I have to get one... It's REALLY a great paddle and performs as advertised. Power suffers "a little" but drinks and drop shots are NUTS!! Once I get my drops dialed in, I'll be unbeatable!!
