Join the Vanguard revolution! If you've already been
"Amped" then you'll know the benefit that the innovative double-thickness
core brings to your game in terms of stability, power and control. With their
new Vanguard range Selkirk have taken this technology to a whole new level!
VANGUARD Hybrid S2 Paddle has a broad face so players can enjoy the VANGUARD
line's largest sweet spot. If you want touch, pop and power in an agile and
comfortable package, this paddle is the way to go. The Hybrid S2 uses the same
dimensions as the original Amped S2 but has the VANGUARD upgraded features
including the carbon fibre surface, unique new edge guard and the Geo grip. The
face is made with a bi-directional carbon fibre that uses two layers on each
side of the paddle to create the exceptional sweet spot. This creates a super reinforced
design for more consistency, defence and feel.
The VANGUARD Hybrid S2 Paddle uses a low- profile edge guard
that protects your equipment while reducing the chances for mis-hits. The Geo
grip on the handle was made specifically for the VANGUARD line and has
excellent moisture-wicking properties, better traction and comfort. The Hybrid
S2 has a thick X5 poly core that reduces vibrations and provides a pleasantly
soft touch. It comes in two weights, the lightweight at 7.5 - 7.9 oz and the
midweight at 7.8 - 8.3 oz. There is also the choice of a matching Vanguard paddle cover for £10 extra.
The Vanguard Hybrid S2 Paddle keeps you closely connected to
the action so you can feel every hit while controlling pickleballs without any
Important note about the Vanguard Paddle paint finish: There are reports of quick wear of the paint finish on these paddles. This is normal and does not affect the performance of the paddle. For the VANGUARD to achieve another level of performance, Selkirk hand-selected a natural carbon fiber weave. With this high-performance QuadCarbon technology, you may notice minor markings in the graphics on the face, just as fingerprints have unique markings. These minor markings do not affect performance in any way. They did test other carbon fiber weaves that don’t have these minor face markings but their level of performance proved inferior to the QuadCarbon technology. Since top performance matters most to the pickleball community, Selkirk chose to use the technology with the highest level of performance. Selkirk ask you to understand that the quick wear of the paint finish on these paddles is normal and is not considered a defect in the product and is therefore is not covered by their manufacturer's guarantee.
