Popular sellers for different standards...


The SELKIRK SLK Nexus and Latitude 2.0 are the most popular with beginners. Both paddles have large sweet spots, with good power and spin, ideal to get you developing your shots whilst learning the game.


The SELKIRK SLK Halo Series has been a best seller over the last few months. The Halo paddles come in four different variations. The Control Max, Control XL, Power Max and Power XL. The Control comes with a 16mm core to maximise feel and dwell time on the ball, meaning more time to control the balls direction and the Power comes with a 13mm core. This thinner core makes the paddle stiffer, reducing dwell time on the ball. Thinner cores tend to have a slightly smaller sweet spot compared to thicker cores. Both the Control and Power have T700 Raw Carbon surfaces which is great for generating maximum spin whilst also being very durable. The Halo range is now available in vibrant colours, black/brown, black/green and black/pink. This has mostly been purchased by intermediate level players.


The top of the range SELKIRK paddles for Intermediate/Advanced players have Air Dynamic Throat Technology, for increased swing speed. This offers optimal airflow through the paddle and improved ball control. This technology is included with the SELKIRK Vanguard Power Air and SELKIRK Luxx Control Air paddles.

The Power Air paddles have a 13mm core to produce more power and with the ProSpin+ NextGen Texture, maximum spin with a long-lasting surface. The Luxx Control Air paddles have a 20mm X7 Thickset core which provides even more power and control. The core’s maximum sweet spot is further enhanced by the honeycomb construction, which provides a more consistent feel on every shot.
