Amped S2 X5 FiberFlex Paddle


The AMPED S2 X5 FiberFlex Paddle has the largest surface area in Selkirk's AMPED line. Players will appreciate the versatility the broad face allows as well as the impressive sweet spot. Balls will react off the face with great accuracy thanks to the unique FiberFlex face and graphic application process which allow for more time to place shots where you want them. The X5 core adds more consistency across the face and a quieter sound.

The AMPED S2 X5 FiberFlex Paddle has a weight average of 8.2 oz (Std. Weight) or 7.6 oz (Light Weight). The handle is a little shorter than the rest of the AMPED line to accommodate the bigger face. The Selkirk "S" logo is placed slightly above center in the middle of the paddle. A colorful geometric backing lies in the upper half of the paddle while the lower portion is white. The paddle name is written in a black font below the logo.

The AMPED S2 X5 FiberFlex Paddle uses modern paddle technology to offer powerful yet controlled play and consistent responsiveness across the face.

Choose from Standard or Light weight models and thin or standard grips. Colors: black, blue, green, red, purple and orange (orange available in standard weight and purple in light weight only).

NOTE: Weights are calculated with a Standard grip. Choosing a THIN grip will reduce the weight by approximately .2 ounce


Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

Reviews of the Selkirk S2 AMPED Pickleball Paddle by PickleballCentral Staff:

"I must admit to being a bit of a paddle geek. Of the (too?) many paddles I own, I have a couple of Selkirk paddles. Needless to say, I was excited when I saw the videos for the AMPED paddles and couldn’t wait to compare them to the S1 G+ which is my primary daily paddle. The new AMPED Version of the S2 Selkirk paddle fulfills on the promises made. The thicker core makes for a “softer” playing paddle. I feel like this is the first fiberglass face paddle I can control. There must be something to this FiberFlex face material, because I immediately liked the shot feel with this paddle. I usually have trouble keeping the ball on the court due to the power of the fiberglass faced paddles, but this was not the case with the AMPED S2. I have enjoyed the S1+ Graphite version (which is the heavier version of the prior model using a poly core with Graphite Face). With the new AMPED S2, I also felt I had the same control on my short game that I get with graphite paddles. My summary is this: Confidence inspiring in kitchen play, large sweet spot when volleying, and more than enough power on serves and passing shots. I’m excited to get more AMPED time on the courts!

3 of 5 Dubious shape, rediculous handle January 18, 2020
Reviewer: Mike from Colorado  
The squarish shape (with rounded corners) seems like a bad idea, especially being flat on top. The usable length of the handle is about 4 inches if one uses the knob on the end. If one does not use the knob, the handle measures about 3 1/2 inches long. As far as I am concerned, there are several better options.

3 of 5 Handle too short January 16, 2020
Reviewer: Kimo Dejon from Arizona  
Have been playing with this paddle for one year now and do not like the short handle - for my bigger hands. Also, the Polymer core honeycombs, at the top section, have compressed and the seal has separated. Trying to get in touch with Selkirk's warranty department is like pulling teeth!!!

2 of 5 S2 cracking & bubbling. January 5, 2020
Reviewer: Steve Stemler from Marion, NC United States  
Twice I've had to return the paddle due to cracking and bubbling.  Your customer service Rep suggested that I not routinely hit the ground with my paddle (seriously???!!!); and that maybe that would solve these cracking issues. I'm not a novice, beginner or intermediate pickleball player.  I played competitive tennis for 45 years!  I'm sorry that I've been a little ticked off at your company and at the paddle in particular.  Most of my crew play with Selkirk paddles - a few have had problems with it.  Not many, but some.  I was told by your Rep that if the paddle cracks again, I'm SOL.  I'm just shaking my head.
