I’m still adjusting to the shorter handle, but I feel that my accuracy and placement has improved quite a bit.
Recently purchased a new paddle for a family member. I stumbled upon picklr site and realized it offered the best price for the Selkirk paddle. Placed my order and it was shipped promptly. I will be definitively returning for future purchases.
I purchased this after trying many paddles, as I have shoulder pain after about an hour of play. I purchased the lightweight and love it! Allows for fast reaction and has greatly improved my game. Taking some time to get used to lighter weight tho.
First time with a Selkirk, so far loving the response on blocks. A lot of paddle to handle on follow throughs. Great movement on slices.
I've been playing for less than a year now and started with an Onyx X5. Decided I wanted something more. I went with a Blue S2 Amped. I ordered a Midweight (8.3 ounces) with the larger diameter grip size.
About the same time I received the paddle I began playing every morning. Between the paddle and more court time my game has really improved.
My favorite part of the paddle is the surface grip. Since I've been playing with the S2 my Top Spins have become some of my best shots. And I notice a lot more control with my serves. The paddle definitely has a good sweet spot.
I'm sold on the Selkirk brand and the S2 Amped.
