Description Technical Specs

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.

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!

5 of 5 Superb Paddle in both Power and Control May 31, 2022
Reviewer: intermediate player from Waxahachie, TX United States  
This paddle will Amp up your game! An excellent balance of control plus solid power along with enough texture on the face to help get higher spin rates on the serve. It also seems to have a generous sweet spot such that off center hits still have enough to get over the net even from the baseline. The thickness gives a trampoline effect perhaps adding some power so your swing is not hard at all. Precise control for those offensive lobs and passing shots. Before I sound like the Selkirk marketing person I will tell you it is expensive and that the #1 drawback for the average rec player, and #2 the handle is too short to hit two handed backhands so you will need to work on moving to a one-handed backhand stroke if you buy this paddle (or learn to switch and play with a non-dominant hand forehand as necessary). This paddle will help your game but your game style also has to suit its strong points to get the best benefits.

5 of 5 Light weight paddle- Amped May 12, 2022
Reviewer: Karen  
Love my new lighter weight paddle! The small grip is perfect! I chose that to eliminate weight! Dont really notice the difference in my grip . I dont have a large hand. I think it is helping my shoulder pain  to have it lighter. Only about 2 weeks playing time though!
