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.

    Very expensive! Great paddle for someone who is a 4.0. ish and needs to control the ball to gain advantage and minimize their weaknesses. Not great for fast power plays. Spins like crazy; absorbs drives so you can change pace and place ball. I have two paddles. This one for days when I am feeling defensive and using fast balls. And a faster paddle for heavy balls and and days when I am feeling on top. Still new; but it feels more sensitive to damage… not sure that the gritty surface for spins will last. Unprotected edge easily damaged by contact with court surface. Still glad I bought it!

    I was using the Selkirk 003 and bought this for the surface grit. It’s perfect for my game.

  • 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!
