AMPED INVIKTA X5 FIBERFLEX PADDLE
The AMPED Invikta X5 is Selkirk's flagship paddle. It combines Selkirk's revolutionary AMPED technology with a longer paddle designed with the help of top pro Tyson McGuffin. This paddle has helped Tyson and several other top pro players win numerous medals since its launch.
The AMPED Invikta X5 paddle offers both power and touch. Unlike most elongated paddles the Invikta has a longer handle. The Invikta X5 can be ordered with a small or medium grip which measures 5-1/4" long. The weight range is 7.3 - 7.7 oz for the light model and 7.8 - 8.2 oz for the standard. The polymer core reduces impact while creating a feeling of consistent control.
I like this paddle for a few reasons. I needed the extra paddle length to make up for being slow. I also like the longer handle because I have a 2 handed backhand drive. I feel like I have both power and control with this paddle. I also like that Selkirk has great customer service.
This paddle provides me a good amount of power without giving up control. It is the closest thing to a tennis racket that I have found. I also have a 2-handed backhand and the grip handle gives me the room I need without sacrificing paddle face length. I use the lightweight paddle as I play mostly doubles and like the ability to get it around quickly.
