Thank you Pickleball Central for providing a Selkirk AMPED Maxima X5 FiberFlex Paddle demo for our club to try.
I thought that given the elongated paddle head shape, it would take some getting used to, but it immediately felt comfortable and not top heavy. It gave me more power in my overhead shots without sacrificing control when dinking. In fact, the sweet spot seems to be much bigger on this paddle than on my current Element paddle, which really helped me to hit the ball with better precision on most every part of the paddle.
I played a couple of the games against some hard hitters and the thick core absorbed the shots better than my other paddle and allowed me to block hard drives with more control.
This paddle is great for someone wanting a little extra reach, power and control. It’s also an excellent paddle for those who have some limited mobility and speed on the court due to age or injury because there’s an extra inch of paddle that allows players to get to a ball at their feet or a bit out of reach that they can’t normally get to with a regular paddle. The handle is a good size and very comfortable to grip.
I love the Selkirk design on the paddle. I have the green version of it. It looks very classy and I have received a lot of compliments on it.
I let someone borrow the paddle during Open Play at our new courts in San Carlos, Mexico, and she immediately fell in love with it and plans to purchase one from Pickleball Central. She felt it gave her more power and reach.
