The 2021 Vanguard Hybrid Epic is the most complete all-around Vanguard paddle. In fact, all Epic models have the same shape across the Selkirk line. The Epic model, or shape, provides the best all around paddle for the beginner to the touring pickleball pro.
The Vanguard Hybrid Series of pickleball paddles adds state-of-the-art technology to your game to give you better control with your dinks and more power with your drives:
Edgesentry ™: a low profile, lightweight and durable edgeguard providing a more balanced perimeter.
QuadCarbon ™ Face: two layers of carbon fiber on each side (bi-directional cross-weave technology) provides supreme vibration dampening (along with the poly core) giving you unmatched feel and control, but might power from the baseline. Highlights are maximum spin, consistency and perfect feel.
X5 ™ Honeycomb Thick Poly Core: the advanced polypropylene honeycomb core is what makes Selkirk paddles unique. The thick core, in conjunction with the QuadCarbon ™ Face absorb vibration resulting in a larger sweet spot and better feel.
VANGUARD Geo Grip: Excellent comfort with advanced wicking capabilities, premium style and better grip control.
The Epic comes in two standard weights: Midweight and Lightweight, custom weights 7.7-9.5 oz are available with special order.
Standard grip size is 4.25″. Smaller (4.o”) and Larger (4.5″) are available with special order.
