VANGUARD 2.0 Hybrid Epic Paddle

The VANGUARD Hybrid 2.0 Epic Paddle features a wide face with a slightly elongated handle, plus some of Selkirk's finest engineering and materials. The 2.0 model brings to the table a Gen2 Durable Surface enhance by Selkirk's Pro-Spin texture that holds up over time, and sends pickleballs off with a well-defined curve in their trajectory. It also leverages a quantum carbon fiber face material which creates exceptionally consistent responsiveness across the face.

The VANGUARD 2.0 Epic Paddle has a 5-1/4" handle length, with a medium 4-1/4" circumference, wrapped in Selkirk's popular Geo Grip known for it's light tackiness and moisture-absorption. The paddle may be ordered in a light 7.3 - 7.7 oz. weight range, or a 7.8 - 8.3 oz. midweight range. An 8" overall width and 15-3/4" overall length combine to offer a broad sweet spot, in addition to the 5/8" thick X5 polymer honeycomb core which reduces impact vibration and improves ball control.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

    Nicest paddle I’ve played with


  • Much improved for control when dinking, but no distinguishable power from its predecessor.

    I had the opportunity to try a number of Selkirk paddles and this one fit my game perfectly. It has more control and accuracy than other Selkirks I tried. It is not a power paddle at all but has great ball feel and a good sweet spot.


  • Just the right weight

    I love my new Selkirk Vantage 2.0 paddle. I was playing the Amped Epic prior to that but needed a replacement. The Vantage Epic has the same solid feel and forgiveness, but the surface generates more spin. It’s a great paddle!

    I’ve had mixed results playing with this new paddle. It was advertised as playing outstanding spin but I produced much better spin with my last paddle…which unfortunately was lost. I paid too much for what I got.
