The SLK Omega Max Pickleball Paddle is a unique offering from the SLK line, by Selkirk. First, each face is comprised of a mix of materials engineered to give you the best bang for your buck in terms of power from deep in the court, to control from the kitchen line. Manufactured from a layer of GC9-Flex Carbon for control and a layer of performance fiberglass for power, all atop Selkirk's 0.5" thick Rev-Core+ polymer honeycomb core material, and finished in a molded, edgeless design to enhance maneuverability. There's a lot of tech packed into this compact package.
Next, the Omega Max features Selkirk's NextGen Pro Texture treatment on both faces, delivering a new level of control through spin. Finally, a FlexFoam material is injected around the perimeter of the paddle just beneath the edge, which adds weight, widens the sweet spot, and results in a feeling of shot stability as the paddle resists torqueing in the hand when a ball impacts outside the sweet spot. Weight averages 7.9 oz., with a weight range tolerance of 7.7 – 8.0 oz. Dimensions are 16" long by 7.85" wide, with a 4.85" handle length. The handle is 4.25" in circumference and arrives wrapped in Selkirk’s popular SLK Ultra-Comfort Grip.
While the SLK Omega Max Pickleball Paddle by Selkirk could certainly be considered a power-player's paddle, there are enough control-oriented features built in that improving your short game and spin skills are certainly on the menu as well.
