SLK by Selkirk Graphite Atlas Control Widebody Paddle

The SLK Graphite Atlas Control Widebody Paddle is a powerful paddle that feels great in the hand and retains control for technical play. The dual-layer graphite face plays consistently while creating a nice sense of touch as the polymer PowerCore adds more backbone and punch to every hit. This mix of precision and strength make for a paddle that feels natural while improving overall performance.

The SLK Graphite Atlas Control Widebody Paddle provides excellent quality at a reasonable price. It weighs 7.5 - 8.0 oz making it a medium weight that will feel comfortable to most players. The handle is 5-¼" long, a bit longer than the industry average, providing more reach and room for the hand. The grip has a medium circumference and the face width measures 8-¼", creating a broad and reactive sweet spot.

The SLK Graphite Atlas Control Widebody Paddle has the versatility to suit almost any player's style while providing extra advantages thanks to top-notch design. (Note - the SLK series is Selkirk's value line which is designed in Hayden, ID, and manufactured in China)

    I purchased this paddle after playing for only one month. I've used it twice now and like the feel. It is lightweight and so far, a good paddle for someone who is relatively new to pickleball.

    I had an issue with one of the paddles I purchased. The rubber seal had come loose from the paddle. PBC sent me a new paddle with a return label and packaging. Zero hassle and really quick turnaround. Why can’t all companies be this easy to work with?

  • Very good, basic paddle

    I am new to pickleball and this paddle from a very reputable manufacturer was in the price range I was looking for. It has a very comfortable grip and the widebody silhouette I wanted, since I felt that control was more important than power for me. It does seem quite forgiving on off sweet spot hits. As expected, I have to provide my own power.

  • A Sweet Spot Surrounded By Huge Dead Zones

    Sep 13, 2021

    I read several reviews of the Selkirk SLK Atlas Graphite Control Widebody Paddle before purchasing and it seemed like it would be a good fit. The paddle has good pop if you strike the ball dead center, however, anywhere on the paddle just outside this center the ball absolutely dies. So many times when you're diving for a low shot or reaching for a dink, you don't hit it dead on center and expect to still make a play, but that just hasn't happened with this paddle. The grip is nice and large enough for two handed back hand. I bought this as an upgrade to my beginner paddle I bought when I first started, but sadly this is not an upgrade from my beginner $30 paddle. Ultimately, I would not recommend this paddle.
