With a stylish S on the front and a faded Vanguard logo, this paddle has a cool aesthetic. The Vanguard 2.0 Hybrid lets you achieve the next level of performance with unwavering speed and consistency. Utilising the shape of the S2 racquet series, it offers a wider face and shorter handle giving the largest sweet spot of any other Selkirk racquet. With the new Quadcarbon face – which provides a stiffer shot allowing for more consistency, this gifts the paddle a strong feeling of control and spin. The X5 Core absorbs vibrations and redirects power back to the core which allows for a quieter shot and softer feel. The geo grip was made specifically for the Vanguard which gives more comfort, improved traction and wicking.

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.
