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.

  • This has an elongated handle instead of a longer paddle surface/

    I was looking for an elongated paddle, not handle. Even the paddle surface was smaller than the one I have now. This paddle had a punch, but I was missing someshots I would normally get.

    I bought this for my wife who wanted control and a longer handle. She does not like the usual size of the end cap on most paddles including this one. The extra length helps her two handed backhands. She has more control with this paddle.

    This paddle gives me plenty of power, but also helps with control at the net. I’m loving it. The handle on this paddle is wonderful. Highly recommend this paddle:)))

    Really like the paddle. The longer handle is great. Also like how it seems to be weighted more on the top. I am also able to create more spin than I can with my Amped S2.

    I like it, good feel, good pop but I thought it was bit bigger of a paddle. (My Fault). Just purchased a new Selkirk that fits my needs.

    Like the elongated surface and the long Tennis style handle. Would like to try it in the 16mm

    It took me a few games to get used to this paddle as my previous paddle had a very short handle and was lighter. But now that I have adjusted I loved the longer handle for two-handed backhand shots. The ball pops nicely off the face and the carbon fiber face is helping with placement and spin. This paddle also has a slightly longer reach than my old Paddletek Bantam TS Pro which helps me reach out for those out of the way shots.

    I love this paddle, the way it feels in my hand and the play on the ball. It is a great all around paddle.
