Selkirk Vanguard Control Invikta Raw Carbon Pickleball Paddle

Featuring an extended handle and an elongated shape, the Selkirk Vanguard Control Invikta Paddle delivers a surprisingly large sweet spot that helps you dominate with power, spin, and reach. This 16.45” overall length paddle immediately fills us with confidence when we grab the 5.5” long octagonal handle. Wrapped in a perforated grip, this upgraded handle adds maneuverability and shot accuracy to the obvious reach. Now that we can reach more shots, we can really put the T700 Raw QuadCarbon Fiber hitting surface to the test. Measuring in at 7.44” wide, this hitting surface uses a specially formulated texture and a rigid feel to boost dwell time, return energy to the ball, and help us get more RPMs on our spinning shots than ever before.

The Vanguard Control line is all about precision and the Vanguard Control Invikta Paddle from Selkirk keeps up with the Jones’s despite its powerful elongated shape. Working with the spin-happy hitting surface to maintain this controllable feel is the 16mm Vanguard X5+ Honeycomb. Originally developed for Labs Project 006, this core boasts impressive vibration absorption for a soft feel and an expanded sweet spot for consistent pop. Available in both lightweight and midweight iterations, this paddle is a great option for intermediate to professional players who focus on reach near the net and plenty of power to go with the outrageous spin.

  • Selkirk Vanguard Control Invikta Paddle

    Mar 14, 2024

    Lightweight, long handle, elongated, 16mm, carbon fiber surface- this paddle has everthing I was looking for. I had the Joola Hyperion until I wore it out. I tried the Joola Perseus as a replacement and found it to be too heavy with too hard of a surface. The new Selkirk Vanguard Control Invikta paddle was as light as my Hyperion, but with more thickness and control. If you are looking for control and paddle speed at the kitchen- this is your paddle.
