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.

The VANGUARD Hybrid 2.0 Epic Pickleball Paddle from Selkirk provides a new level of durability and versatility to players who want a powerful option that can keep pace with their game.

    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.

    Love the weight, feel, and responsiveness of this paddle. The grip is also a plus.

    Replaced my broken Engage ex 6 with this Selkirk paddle after trying Engages Pursuit line. In comparison I found it to be more balanced and delivered more control at the line. Great paddle although a bit spendy!
