The Selkirk Vanguard Hybrid Invikta Lightweight Pickleball Paddle is an extended length option for players that want a lot of pocketing and comfort. Light and maneuverable, the Vanguard Hybrid Invikta has a full paddle length of 16.5 inches giving players plenty of reach to cover more of the court and leverage to unleash big shots. The hitting surface is made up of Quadcore, a bi-directional cross-weave of carbon fibers with a slightly rough feel for great spin and control. Contact on every type of shot is extremely clean and has a slightly rough finish for control and spin. The X5 Honeycomb Polymer Core absorbs vibration and provides a soft and comfortable feel. The paddle is protected by Selkirk EdgeSentry, a neutral weight and low-profile edge that maintains the paddle's maneuverability and does not interfere with the paddle's hitting surface. Overall, the Selkirk Vanguard Hybrid Invikta Lightweight pickleball paddle is a must for players that want extra reach on the court. The long handle also helps players that want to play with a two-handed backhand for more power, or a familiar transition from tennis. Plenty of pocketing and connection to the ball round out a great overall feel for a light and maneuverable extended length paddle.
