I had been playing with the Selkirk Epic Amped prior to ordering the Vanguard Epic. I have been a huge fan of the Amped paddle for many years. While the shape and dimensions are very similar the Vanguard paddle plays totally different and it took me a few times playing with it to understand how awesome of a paddle that it is! The sweet spot is literally the entire paddle face and it has allowed me to hit and make shots that i didn't posses prior to playing with it. Every time i play with it i enjoy it even more! The eye appeal is also really great but most of all it has helped to improve my game and enjoyment for the game! I have shared it with a few Selkirk fans in my club and they all agree with me, this is a game changing paddle! Nice work Selkirk and thank you for your continued focus to making great products, unparalleled support and continuing to take your products to the next level. This paddle is worth the wait! 5+ stars!
Way more control using this smooth feel to every hit can literally control where you put the ball easier With perfect amount of power and makes 3rd drop shots even easier
I love my old Epic paddles, but this Vanguard Epic Amped is the zenith of paddles. I love it. The grip is fantastic and I have more control with the paddle. I’ve risen to a new apex as a player because of this paddle.
Hands down the best paddle I’ve ever used. I was on the market for a new paddle for some time now and even demoed a few different brands. The $200 price tag raised my eyebrows a bit, but I figured why not try it out and if I don’t like it, I’d just return it with the 30-day guarantee. Even after my first game, I noticed a drastic improvement in my game. My serves and drives are gnarly with this thing my shots go exactly where I want them to and my 3rd shot goes over the net with ease. The paddle does flake a bit after a few games, but that’s the nature of carbon fiber and it’s nothing to be concerned over. I ended up buying another one the next day as my wife kept stealing it for her games!
