Featuring a slighly extended reach, this is a strong paddle for reaching hard shots. The ultimate control paddle for balanced Pickleball players. The Luxx Control Air, endorsed by Jack Sock, introduces transformative Florek Carbon Fiber technology alongside Selkirk’s revered 20mm X7 Thikset Honeycomb core, proprietary 360° Proto Molding construction, and enhanced Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless technology, to bring you an expanded sweet spot, ample power, accelerated spin, and unequaled control.
