Light weight and durable. The Selkirk Vanguard 2.0 Epic features the traditional paddle shape with a long handle and large surface area for an all-around well-balanced racquet. Featuring the best of both worlds with a large sweet spot and longer handle, this allows for more controlled power. The surface is Quadcarbon technology, being made up of bi-directional cross weave carbon fibers which allows for a higher rate of spin and control on both sides of the racquet. The X5 core absorbs vibration with ease, thanks to the core redistributing the energy when contact is made allowing for a quieter sound when hitting the ball and a softer feel, while making contact less jarring to the body.

Quadcarbon Face: Designed to achieve a larger sweet spot and longer resonance time, the VANGUARD face features proprietary bi-directional, cross-weave carbon fiber technology in two seamless layers, on both sides of the paddle. The double layer provides twice the stiffness in all directions, flattening the ball more on each hit, to give you consistency, maximum spin, and perfect feel.
X5 Honeycomb Thick Poly Core: Built for consistent speed, using advanced polypropylene honeycomb technology, the VANGUARD core works in conjunction with the revolutionary Quardcarbon face to absorb the vibration from each hit and yield unwavering speed. The thicker core of the VANGUARD Hybrid transfers more energy to the core, giving you a larger sweet spot and a softer feel.
EdgeSentry Edgeguard: handcrafted to achieve an unrivaled, well-balanced, and solid paddle, EdgeSentry durable edgeguard technology is low profile and lightweight.
Vanguard Geo Grip: created exclusively for the VANGUARD, the Geo grip offers supreme comfort, enhanced wicking capability, improved traction, and premium style.
