Selkirk VANGUARD Power Mach6 Pickleball Paddle

The VANGUARD Power Mach6 Paddle by Selkirk is a dream come true for players who love a high performance, racquet-like feel to their gear. Both the handle and face of this paddle are elongated so that double-handed backhands, groundstrokes, lob returns and full court control can be managed with ease. A more aggressive option than the Hybrid variant of the Mach 6, this power paddle will keep challengers on their toes.

The VANGUARD Power Mach 6 Pickleball Paddle shares the same dimensions as the VANGUARD Hybrid Mach6 model, but is built around Selkirk's X6 polypropylene honeycomb core rather than their thicker X5 core. This allows more vibration to travel through the paddle which can be useful for those who appreciate noticeable ball-against-paddle contact. It also allows for more speed and put-away power. The Mach6 weighs in between 7.8 – 8.3 oz, making it a true midweight paddle, and arrives with a medium grip circumference of 4.25".

The VANGUARD Power Mach 6 Pickleball Paddle is incredibly adaptable and strikes consistently, making it a great choice for intermediate-to-pro players who want a paddle that can do it all.

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 Mach6 Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:

"I remember talking to Riley Newman about this paddle at the end of last year; he was so excited to start playing it. He told me that it was going to take his game to a new level. It had the shape of the Vanguard Hybrid Mach6, with a thinner core. He was excited about how he’d be able to attack and be even more aggressive in his play. I have worn a ball or two off a Riley Newman paddle, so I decided I would rather try this paddle on my own.

He was right in every aspect. This paddle is thinner. The X6 Polymer Honeycomb core is only .4” thick. It slices through the air and really allows you to attack a ball left up. The Mach6's long handle still cries for two handed shots. I was surprised by the amount of top spin I could generate with a two handed backhand.

The flight of the ball on shots with the Vanguard Power paddles is hard and low. As long as you are consistent hitting the sweet spot you can really attack your opponent. This is a players paddle that delivers the promised power. You just have to make sure you stay center on the paddle. I, alas, am not one of those players. My game is based on control and not power. I need the forgiveness and the larger sweet spot of the Vanguard Hybrid models to be effective. However, I know this – I am none too excited to stand on the opposite side of the net from Riley as he smokes one to my midsection. I’ll do it – I’m just not excited about it."
