Power + Control…the two most desired characteristics in a paddle.
Previously, Pickleball paddle manufacturers had to design paddles that either had power or control, not both. By focusing on one aspect, they had to sacrifice the other.
We didn’t want to compromise. The Amped series was engineered to amplify both aspects without compromising! It is the ultimate combination of power and control. The Amped series is pioneering an entirely new technology in the Pickleball industry with its FiberFlex Fiberglass face and patent pending thicker X5 polypropylene core. The revolutionary thicker paddle core provides an unparalleled degree of power and control along with many other performance benefits!
And we have applied this innovative technology to all four of our popular shapes, Epic, Maxima, Omni, and S2.
X5 Polypropylene Polymer Core: a revolutionary patent pending thicker polypropylene polymer core that amplifies both the power and control of a paddle
FiberFlex Unidirectional Fiberglass Face: Redesigned face engineered to amplify performance
Unibody Design: unibody design melds the X5 Core and Fiberflex face together for optimum performance and increased durability
Larger Sweet Spot
The combination of the X5 core and FiberFlex face creates the largest sweet spot of any of our paddles.
A very noticeable attribute of the Amped paddle is its vibration dampening. In addition to giving the paddle a very solid feel, vibration dampening may help some players with their tennis elbow.
When a ball hits off center, it tends to cause the paddle to torque or twist, which reduces accuracy. The X5 core reduces this giving the paddle additional control, a more solid feel, and increased ability to block hard drives. These same principles also make the AMPED paddle the ideal choice for playing in the wind.
Neutralizes Ball Differences
The AMPED paddle neutralizes the differences in different brand balls. It’s never been easier transitioning from an indoor ball to an outdoor ball, or a hard and soft ball. Also, you no longer need two paddles for different balls; all you need is the AMPED!
The X5 Core and FiberFlex face are significantly quieter than our previous technologies and it sounds awesome!
The X5 Core and FiberFlex face combine to create a unique improved ability for Amped paddles to cushion the ball to stay on the face longer. This allows the player to manipulate the ball more effectively.
Impart More Spin
Because of the AMPED’s ability to cushion the ball, players can generate an unmatched amount of spin. This allows us to create the face that is not so rough you cannot diffuse an opponent’s spin.
The Amped Paddle carries on Selkirk’s signature “it feels lighter than it is” reputation, by utilizing our unique weight distribution EdgeSentry edgeguard technology.
Available in all four popular shapes, the Amped paddle is perfect for any style of play.
Epic: Keeping with the traditional paddle shape, the Epic combines a long handle with a large surface area.
S2: With a slightly shorter handle, the S2 boasts the largest sweet spot and surface area of all our paddles, making it the Ultimate Pickleball players paddle!
Omni: A long reach paddle designed for control. The Omni’s shorter handle increases surface area, allowing for a slightly wider face than typical elongated paddles and a larger sweet spot.
Maxima: The power player’s paddle! Engineered with a longer handle and paddle face, the Maxima’s long reach makes it perfect for driving the ball.
