Selkirk LUXX Control Air S2 Carbon Fiber Paddle
The first thing that jumps out at us when playing with the Selkirk LUXX Control Air S2 Pickleball Paddle is its super-thick and controllable 20mm (0.79") honeycomb core. Referred to as Thikset, this proprietary core material was originally tested in the Selkirk Labs Project 003, and earned the honor of being the heart of this paddle due to its ability to produce a soft and responsive feel, stability while blocking opponents' drives, and promoting consistency in each of your strikes (placing this paddle at the opposite end of the control-versus-power spectrum from its sibling VANGUARD Power Air S2 paddle). Around the edges of this prolific core, you will find a FlexFoam Perimeter that increases power and twist-weight, and absorbs impact vibrations with every hit.
The LUXX Control Air paddle further features Selkirk's proprietary blended Florek Carbon Fiber hitting surface and ThroatFlex technology. This means the 11.2" long by 8.25" wide hitting surface, coated in ProSpin+ Next Gen Texture, ensures one of the broadest sweet spots on the market, increases ball dwell time against the face, and imparts amazing spin on your slices and topspin drives. To further encourage smooth play, this paddle boasts an Air Dynamic Throat (the hole) and Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless technology which reduces drag and improves hand speed during quick play.
If you demand control, spin, and are perhaps a "finger up" player who finds a short handle the most comfortable option, then the LUXX Control Air paddle from Selkirk Pickleball may be the answer you are looking for.
