Selkirk SLK Halo XL Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle
Add improved feel, control, and spin to your game with the SLK Halo XL from Selkirk. Available in 13mm (0.51") thick "Power Core" and 16mm (0.63") thick "Control Core" options, this carbon paddle boasts a more elongated shape compared to its SLK Halo Max counterpart, allowing you to enhance your game, not change it. Whether you opt for the Power Core or the Control Core, you will benefit from the Rev-Core Technology found in both models that limits vibrations and enhances the sweet spot to provide you with easy control.
No matter if you are a control-focused or power-minded player, the Selkirk SLK Halo XL paddle and its elongated 16.4" by 7.4" dimensions will provide you with reach, effortless ball spin, and responsive swing speed made possible by the narrower face shape and longer 5.75" handle (great for two-handed backhands). Meanwhile, the Rev-Core Polymer Core boosts the sweet spot in both Halo models so you can keep more shots in play than ever before. For increased spin, the Halo XL leverages a T700 raw carbon fiber face material, featuring a gritty texture that imparts spin on the ball to promote strategic topspin drives, cut-serves, and slicing backhands.
Whether you prefer the 16mm thick Control version, or the 13mm thick Power model, the SLK Halo XL Pickleball Paddle is sure to provide you with effortless spin and the confidence you crave every time you head out on the court.

(1) Great looking paddle. (9-10) (2) Build quality was very good. (9-10) (3) Size of face was acceptable. (10-10) (4) Grip was great for 2- handed backhand. (10-10) (5) Spin was ok, not super impressed. (7-10) (6) Control was very good (10-10) (7) Power seemed to be lacking. This was the primary reason for my returning this paddle. (5-10) (8) Value at $140 was good. (7-10) Final thoughts: For $140 and this being a 700 carbon faced paddle, if you’re looking for a very good “CONTROL” paddle, you should be very pleased with this paddle. As usual the folks at Pickleball Central were great to work with. Thanks so much for offering a Try-before-you buy type of buying process. It truly helps avoiding a purchase that ends up not being used. Hope this helps.

If you're looking for a carbon fiber paddle, the SLK Halo is a great place to start! I honestly have more confidence in my shot placement with this paddle, and I do with a Joola Hyperion.
