Description Technical Specs

VANGUARD Hybrid Omni Pickleball Paddle

The VANGUARD Hybrid Omni Paddle has the longest face in the VANGUARD line so players can cover the entire court and pull off unexpected maneuvers. The elongated style is ideal for advanced players who can swing with precision but still want a large surface area and crave the increased power, reach and forward momentum this style provides. It comes with a host of improvements over the previous AMPED line including a new type of face, high traction grip and slimmer edge guard.

The VANGUARD Hybrid Omni Paddle has a 7.5 – 7.9 oz weight range in the light model and 7.8 – 8.3 oz range in the standard model. Its face is made up of two layers of Toray carbon fiber on both sides which creates exceptional consistency and sensitive touch. The X5 poly core is thick enough to absorb vibrations and prevents stress to the joints. At 4-1/4” long, the handle can be used normally but players can also put their index finger on the back of the face for increased stability. It has a medium grip circumference.

Note about the Vanguard Paddle paint finish: Our testers have reported quick wear of the paint finish on these paddles. This is normal, and does not affect the performance of the paddle. Selkirk and Pickleball Central ask you to understand that this is not considered a defect in the product. See image below for "normal wear" example. If you feel your Vanguard paddle ever experiences abnormal or excessive wear or flaking of the paint, please contact Customer Service.

I like the new Selkirk vanguard hybrid Omni paddle. I like that it's made in USA and guaranteed .the surface is good for spin,and the elongated shape gives me the extra reach.Still getting used to it but I know it's going to be good.

5 of 5 VANGUARD Hybrid Omni Paddle May 23, 2022
Reviewer: Paul Culp  
I play with a table tennis grip.  This paddle is the perfect extension of my hand.  As usual, the Pickleball Central service was beyond perfect.

5 of 5 The Vanguard Is Without Compare May 17, 2022
Reviewer: Bruce H from Kirkland, WA  
Nobody has supported us players wanting a short-handled paddle more than Selkirk with the Omni.  The paddle was designed by the Amazing Glen Peterson to maximize the surface area available for a player to use.  I use a finger up (table tennis style) grip, and find this to be the best defensive paddle I've ever used.  The fact that you can get this paddle in a 7.5oz range is astounding!

5 of 5 Great paddle February 25, 2022
Reviewer: Brandon Walden from Redding, CA United States  
This is a great paddle. I’m an intermediate rec player that’s only been playing about 3 months. I have a similar shape paddle by Electrum. But I prefer this one. It absorbs the ball at the net so we’ll in defensive moments and can achieve great top spin when applied. I personally like the shorter paddle handle as it feels more connected to me, like an extension of my arm…. not just something I’m holding. I know this isn’t the new S2. However, this is a stellar paddle and I couldn’t be more happy.
