The Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle is the longest pickleball paddle in the Selkirk AMPED range, measuring 17″ long. Co-designed by Morgan Evans, who is renowned for his power play and whipped serve, the AMPED MAXIMA provides epic reach on-court, as well as devasting power. In fact, Selkirk themselves name the AMPED MAXIMA the ‘power player’s paddle’. We will dive into the details later in our Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle review, but the stand-out features include a long reach, FiberFlex paddle face, and Selkirk’s Polypropylene X5 Core. This means the AMPED MAXIMA is built to give you huge reach, power, and stability on-court. What’s more, the Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA weighs in between 7.8 – 8.3 ounces, making it a heavier pickleball paddle that only enhances your ability to drive the pickleball hard from the baseline.
Check out our Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle review to find out everything you need to know before opting for Selkirk’s Ultimate Power Paddle.
Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle face utilizes Selkirk’s FiberFlex technology, seen throughout the AMPED paddle series. Selkirk’s FiberFlex technology includes a fiberglass paddle face that is brilliant at creating spin-enhancement and control on-court. Protecting the paddle face is Selkirk’s EdgeSentry edge guard which is lightweight, durable and well-balanced. This provides the paddle with a solid and consistent feeling when striking the pickleball on-court. We also love the bright and bold graphics that emblazon the front of the AMPED range paddle. The MAXIMA is available in five awesome colors including Selkirk Red, Amethyst Purple and Desert Coast.
The Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Paddle X5 Core is made from the same durable polypropylene honeycomb technology seen across the AMPED range. Uniquely designed to provide power on-court, the X5 Core gives you the ability to beat your opponent with big hits from the back of the court in a way that few other paddles can. Co-designed by big-hitting pickleball player, Morgan Evans, the Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA is able to create brilliant whip on the pickleball ball thanks to its extended reach and powerful core technology.
Dimensions & Weight
The Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle dimensions help the AMPED MAXIMA stand out as a brilliant elongated pickleball paddle. The MAXIMA is available in a lightweight option, as well as a medium weight option. The lighter paddle option weighs between 7.2 – 7.6 ounces, while the middleweight paddle weighs between 7.6 – 8.3 ounces. If you are someone who is buying the AMPED MAXIMA paddle to hit big and play with power, we would recommend opting for a middleweight paddle. However, if you are a player that spends a lot of time in the no-volley zone, relying on your fast-reaction speeds then you might want to consider the lighter weight option. The AMPED MAXIMA measures 17″ in length and 7″ across the paddle face. This long and sleek paddle design creates a super-aerodynamic paddle that is able to whip the pickleball like very few other paddles can – this is one of the stand-out features of the AMPED MAXIMA and a big part of its appeal.
Handle & Grip
The Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle also features a long 5.25″ handle, that provides super reach on-court. If you are someone who likes to play two-handed shots or someone who prefers a longer paddle handle, you will love the AMPED MAXIMA. The grip circumference is also a comfortable 4.25″ which makes the paddle easy and comfortable to grip for sustained periods. When it comes to the paddle’s grip, the Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA’s handle is wrapped in Selkirk’s Comfort Grip which is made from a comfortable cushioned material that provides a confident hold on-court. The surface of the grip is perforated to ensure that moisture is drawn quickly away from the palm, while the cushioning inside the grip makes for added comfort on-court.
Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle Review Summary
The Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA Pickleball Paddle is another great paddle from the Selkirk AMPED series. Featuring fresh graphics and improved reliability, all of the Selkirk paddles are built to effortlessly combine power and control on-court. With that said, when it comes to producing power, the AMPED MAXIMA stands apart. Thanks to the paddle’s 17″ length and slim 7″ paddle face, the MAXIMA is super-aerodynamic and can be swung hard from the back of the court to produce some of the most powerful shots in pickleball. To add to this, the middleweight MAXIMA weighs between 7.6 – 8.3 ounces, giving you the weight needed to max out your power shots whenever you need to. Despite the MAXIMA’s powerful build, the extended reach and 5.25″ paddle handle also provides you with the ability to own the center of the court as a strategic singles player or top-level doubles tactician. Available in five epic colors, the Selkirk AMPED MAXIMA pickleball paddle is a great looking paddle that looks good on-court.
