Keeping with the traditional paddle shape, the Selkirk Vanguard 2.0 Epic combines a long handle with a large surface area.
In the new range of innovative, brilliantly designed Vanguard paddles, Selkirk pinpointed what matters most in Pickleball: speed + consistency
With the Vanguard paddles, Selkirk set out to explore Carbon Fiber technology. Their engineers developed a proprietary QuadCarbon technology with two layers of carbon fiber on each side, instead of just one. This unique approach delivers a paddle like no other that gives you ultimate consistency, accelerated ball velocity, an extra large sweet spot, maximum spin, and perfect feel.
WHAT’S NEW- VANGUARD 2.0

Quantum-CarbonFiber Face: Proprietary bi-directional, cross-weave carbon fiber technology designed to achieve a larger sweet spot and longer resonance and provide consistency, maximum spin, and perfect feel.
Quantum-CarbonFiber: Utilized by leading spacecraft companies, the Carbon Fiber featured in the VANGUARD 2.0 face delivers superlative speed and consistency.

X5 HONEYCOMB THICK POLY CORE: Built for consistent speed, using advanced polypropylene honeycomb technology, the VANGUARD core works in conjunction with the revolutionary QuadCarbon Face to absorb the vibration from each hit and yield unwavering speed. The thicker core of the VANGUARD Hybrid transfers more energy into the core, giving you a larger sweet spot and a softer feel.
EDGE SENTRY: Low-profile, lightweight and durable edge guard technology for a well-balanced, solid paddle.
VANGUARD GEO GRIP: Created exclusively for the VANGUARD, the geo grip offers supreme comfort, enhanced wicking capability, improved traction, and premium style.
