Are you ready to get AMPED?
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. Selkirk didn't want to compromise thus the Amped series was born. 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 Selkirk has applied this innovative technology to all four of their popular shapes, Epic, Maxima, Omni, and S2.
Morgan Evans, 2017 TOC Champion: “This is a paddle that seemingly defies logic. How can a paddle give so much power, and yet bestow a player with such precision as well? It won't surprise you to know that the answer has many syllables, the new X5 Polypropylene Polymer Core. This patent-pending technology is here to challenge what we once thought was the limit of engineering.”
Tyson McGuffin, 2017 CDA Classic Champion: “With the power, with the control, with the softness, it’s going to take anyone’s game to the next level.”
Kurtis Campbell, SoCall Summer Classic Champion: “With a lot of weaker paddles, they have a lot of touch, but they don't have the power to put behind it too. But the AMPED has both.”
X5 Polypropylene Polymer Core: a revolutionary 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.
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.
MODEL: 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.
