Selkirk Paddles Review: Which is the BEST control paddle? Luxx vs. Vanguard

Selkirk Paddles Review: Which is the BEST control paddle? Luxx vs. Vanguard

Today we are comparing Selkirk paddles – their top control paddles.

The reason I’m making this video is because there are a lot of people who want more precision, better consistency, and more overall control in their game, and both of these paddles can help deliver on those things, but many people don’t know which paddle to get.

Should you go with the new vanguard control or spend a little extra to go with the luxx? We’ll get into the price a little later, but I’ve played with both paddles over the last few months, and I’ve played with both of their predecessors over the years, and in my opinion there is one clear winner.
