Selkirk Amped Maxima Midweight – get it all, get AMPED!
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.
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.
Tonja Major, 2017 US Open Gold Medalist: “Even if the ball doesn’t hit on the center of paddle, the AMPED plays very similar all around the face.”
Morgan Evans, TOC Champion: “The added thickness gives the paddle comfort and control while expanding the sweet spot towards the finely chiseled edge guard.”
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.
Ty McGuffin, 2016 National’s Medalist, “I mean the difference is just night and day. I can’t feel the vibration.”
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!
Dee Davison, 2017 CDA Classic Medalist: “I’ve played with the Onix Indoor, Onix Pure 2 & Dura Fast 40. I believe this paddle neutralizes the Ball Controversy for players! The paddle is solid anywhere I hit the ball, no matter what ball I use. It feels the same onto and off the paddle. Therefore, I can forget about the extreme property differences of the balls (too soft, too bouncy, too hard) and just concentrate on perfecting my stroke pattern and approach to the ball!”
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.
Morgan Evans, 2017 TOC Champion: “The ball really stays on the paddle for a long time. I can curl it as much as I need to.”
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.
Morgan Evans, 2017 TOC Champion: “The kind of spin you can generate with the AMPED, really dips the ball down into the court.”
The Amped Paddle carries on Selkirk’s signature “it feels lighter than it is” reputation, by utilizing the unique weight distribution EdgeSentry edgeguard technology.
Tonja Major, 2017 US Open Gold Medalist: “With the weight, I can’t tell a big difference from my previous lighter paddle, and I actually like the heavier weight since it helps me get more power.”
2019 MODEL: Maxima Mid: The power player’s paddle! Engineered with a longer handle and paddle face, the Maxima’s long reach makes it perfect for driving the ball.
