Top pickleball paddles for control

Everyone is looking for the ultimate paddle that will give them the ultimate power and control. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and the paddle that comes closest to achieving that goal is different for every player.

For those who crave more control - to either accentuate their strengths or address a weakness in their game - there are several features that can improve accuracy. The most important control features are:

  • Graphite surface
  • Rounded shape or widebody shape
  • Thick core
  • Vibration dampening properties

These elements allow the clubs to absorb more energy from the ball, which increases the sweet spot and increases dwell time. These features result in fewer misses and more accuracy.

Selkirk VANGUARD 2.0 S2 Pickleball Paddle

The Selkirk VANGUARD 2.0 S2 has a generous 19mm core thickness. The design significantly reduces the shock that travels up the arm and replaces it with a smooth feel. The Gen2 surface has been improved with a Pro-Spin texture that allows for precise placement.

Never underestimate the smooth feel when it comes to making or breaking a point! If you want to improve your consistency and accuracy, you will be successful with these paddles.
