VANGUARD 2.0 Hybrid S2 Paddle

The VANGUARD Hybrid 2.0 S2 Paddle has a classic and adaptable shape but brings it into the next generation of pickleball thanks to Selkirk's improved materials. A Pro-Spin texture creates better traction so it's a breeze to send curved balls to your opponents. The face is made with quantum carbon fiber to provide incredible speed and consistency while the Gen2 surface outlasts previous models so you can keep using your paddle knowing it will maintain the same reliable feel.

The VANGUARD 2.0 S2 Paddle has an 8" wide face which results in a large and functional sweet spot that players of all levels will appreciate. It comes in a light 7.4 - 7.8 oz. range, or midweight 7.9 - 8.4 oz. range for additional power. The X5 polymer core is a thick 5/8", reduces impact vibrations, and keeps your swinging arm feeling good during play. Its handle length is 4-1/2", with a medium 4-1/4" circumference, wrapped in Selkirk's moisture-absorbing Geo Grip.

The VANGUARD Hybrid 2.0 S2 Pickleball Paddle from Selkirk can be used in any setting for optimal placement, power, and touch when you want to bring your best to the courts.

    Great paddle and a good weight. Feels good all around. This paddle has lifted my game a notch or two. Have fun, play pickleball.

    However I am very disappointed with the color. Color is called crimson and black, looked bright red on the website. It is actually a dull ugley light red. Not like the photo. Very disappointing.


  • Played about 20 games with it and was very satisfied.
