Selkirk VANGUARD Power Invikta Pickleball Paddle

The VANGUARD Power Invikta Paddle by Selkirk is a highly versatile option for picklers who want to make bold and decisive plays. The familiar Invikta shape and moniker, made famous by top Selkirk Pro Tyson McGuffin, continues its legacy as a popular choice for many of the game's most athletic players. With a generous handle length and extended face, the Invikta shape is well suited for groundstrokes, catching lobs and covering the entirety of the court.

The VANGUARD Power Invikta Pickleball Paddle features the same game-changing carbon fiber cross-weave face material, Geo Grip, and EdgeSentry edge guard elements as the VANGUARD Hybrid Invikta, but differentiates from it by starting with Selkirk's innovative X6 polypropylene honeycomb core which measures a scant 0.4" thick. Being built around this core leaves the VANGUARD Power series Invikta with a slim and maneuverable profile, so it's built for speed, and it absorbs less of the ball-on-paddle impact which translates to incredible tactile feel every time you strike a pickleball.

The VANGUARD Power Invikta weighs in at 7.7 – 8.2 oz., positioning it firmly in the midweight category, and arrives with a 4.25" (medium) grip circumference.

The Selkirk VANGUARD Power Invikta Paddle provides advanced players all the tools to create more openings in their opponents' defenses and allows them to seize blocking, power groundstroke, and put-away opportunities like never before.

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.

Reviews of the VANGUARD Power Invikta Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"I was excited to get the opportunity to hit with the Vanguard Power Invikta. I am a fan of the shape of this paddle, and I was interested to see how the Power version differed from the AMPED and the Vanguard Hybrid editions.

First off, I was amazed to see a .4” core for the paddle. It is very thin and makes the paddle very quick through the air. I was able to react and get the paddle to the ball amazingly well. The thin core also means that the energy isn’t absorbed in the paddle. I could feel every hit (and miss hit) giving me instant feedback to how I was playing.

The paddle does have pop, justifying the Power in its name. The QuadCarbon Face does extend the sweet spot further down the face than with the Amped Invikta, but not as far as the Vanguard Hybrid Invikta. The sweet spot side to side is tighter than either of the above paddles.

This Vanguard Power Invikta is a great fit for players who are very consistent at hitting the ball in the center of the sweet spot. They will get great punch and have the ability to attack the ball thanks to the speed of the paddle. For those who are looking for a little more forgiveness and game improvement play, I would recommend they stick with the Amped Invikta or the Vanguard Hybrid Invikta."

5 of 5 Vanguard Power Invikta - Selkirk April 30, 2021
Reviewer: John Nelson from Dade City, FL United States  
This paddle was on back order when I first tried to order.
Brandi had sent me an email and told me she would let me know when it was available. She was true to her word and I now have the paddle!
I love it! The Power has a perfect balance and weight and I notice the put away power.

5 of 5 Invikta Power Paddle March 19, 2021
Reviewer: Linda Ellis from Queen Creek, AZ United States  
I like the paddle, specifically the extra pop and that it is thinner.
Feels like it has a bigger sweet spot with more control.

This Power version paddle definitely gives more power than Hybrid as it advertised.  However, the sweet spot is not as large as the Hybrid.  The handle seems to be 1/4 inch shorter.   I still like the Hybrid version better.   Pickleball service is still great as always.
