Control Paddle Pick: Vanguard 2.0 Epic

For doubles specialists seeking superior control and spin, the Vanguard 2.0 Epic is the perfect choice. Selkirk has redefined their popular Vanguard 2.0 series with the Vanguard Control, featuring the new T700 face.

Having been immersed in the world of paddles for years, I can confidently say Selkirk consistently delivers outstanding control paddles. Earlier this year, they introduced the LUXX Control Air, an innovative paddle based on their Selkirk Labs Project 003. Now, the new Vanguard Control, with its gritty T700 Raw Carbon face derived from the Selkirk Labs Project 006, which offers exceptionally soft resets and heaps of control. If you're a doubles specialist in need of a control-focused paddle, this is a top contender.

Power Paddle of the Month: Bantam TKO-C

The Bantam TKO-C is a powerhouse paddle. I've always had a soft spot for Paddletek, and their paddles, even when those in the paddle industry felt they had disappeared as a brand, our love for Paddletek stayed strong. And with their recent reemergence through their paddles like the Anna Leigh Waters (ALW) Bantam Edition  its clear to us why. Introducing brand new TKO-C used by Christian Alshon, one of the world's top singles players. This is a superb paddle. It's poppy, powerful, and durable. Its basic poly construction, featuring the signature Bantam core complete with a glass epoxy/PT700 face, makes it lightweight, manoeuvrable, and built to last. Give this paddle a try—you won’t be disappointed. Watch our paddle review on it here.
