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.
