SELKIRK (Old Graphics) Amped Maxima

Product Description


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!

Morgan Evans, 2017 TOC Champion: “This is a paddle that seemingly defies logic. How can a paddle give so much power, and yet bestow a player with such precision as well? It won't surprise you to know that the answer has many syllables, the new X5 Polypropylene Polymer Core. This patent-pending technology is here to challenge what we once thought was the limit of engineering.”
Tyson McGuffin, 2017 CDA Classic Champion: “With the power, with the control, with the softness, it’s going to take anyone’s game to the next level.”
Kurtis Campbell, SoCall Summer Classic Champion: “With a lot of weaker paddles, they have a lot of touch, but they don't have the power to put behind it too. But the AMPED has both.”


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

Amplified Performance
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.”

Vibration Dampening
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.”

Torque Suppression
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!

The X5 Core and FiberFlex face are significantly quieter than our previous technologies.

Face Cushioning
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.”

Well Balanced
The Amped Paddle carries on Selkirk’s signature “it feels lighter than it is” reputation, by utilizing our 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.”

Increased reach.

Paddle arrived two days after ordering, always great service and fast shipping from Pickleball Depot. I found immediately that I was picking up and returning a lot of shots that were previously not reachable. It is only an inch and half longer than my other paddle, but, trust me, it makes a big difference. I plan to play singles next Spring, so, this will be an important improvement to my game. The paddle has great power as well as incredible spin. I have not had a lot of chance to try the dinking game with this paddle yet, but I feel it will work good, too many bangers where I play. Handle and grip are also very comfortable. Great paddle, highly recommend.



Best singles paddle

This paddle is great for singles play.

Pickle Ball Depot fan

Great paddle - holds the ball well for better directional control.

Awesome Racket

Have been using my amped maxima for about a month originally borrowing one from the club that I play at. I purchased mine the week of Black Friday so have used the new one about a half dozen times and love it. It is amazing how it removes the speed of the when you are at the line returning slams or backing up returning slams allowing your return to just fall over the net. I like the lightness (7.2oz) the makes it easier to react to shots as well....overall very effective for me...
