Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The Selkirk AMPED EPIC Pickleball Paddle face utilizes Selkirk’s FiberFlex technology. FiberFlex stands for Selkirk’s Fiberglass paddle surface that has been specially designed to provide enhanced control and spin when you hit the pickleball. The AMPED EPIC’s sleek hitting surface allows you to effortless dampen opponent spin, while ball cushioning technology built into the paddle face allows you to react to opponent shots by applying your own enhanced spin and ball-rotation when you return the ball. On top of this, the EPIC features a large, oversized sweet-spot that is lightyears ahead of the previous EPIC paddle. The sweet-spot built into the AMPED EPIC gives you the ability to finesse the pickleball back over the net while ensuring you get consistency in your pickleball shots regardless of shot-selection.
The AMPED EPIC paddle is protected by Selkirk’s Low-profile EdgeSentry Edge Guard. The lightweight EdgeSentry technology is durable, well-balanced and helps to dampen vibrations in the paddle when striking the pickleball. In fact, the entire AMPED Series was designed to reduce the amplitude a frequency of vibrational waves in the paddle, helping to reduce the impact on tennis elbow.
If you are looking for a top-level pickleball paddle that is perfectly balanced to provide power, control and performance then any of the Selkirk AMPED Series paddles will work for you – if you want a paddle that is beautifully proportioned with a longer handle, then choose the Selkirk AMPED EPIC.
