The VANGUARD Hybrid Maxima Pickleball Paddle helps players cover the court with controlled power and placement. The Maxima design has an extra long face and handle so that you can easily reach for every shot and modify your play style depending on the circumstances. The VANGUARD model uses a strong, consistent surface for this paddle and an improved edge guard and grip.
The VANGUARD Hybrid Maxima Pickleball Paddle face has two layers on each side with bi-directional carbon fiber that creates a consistent feel. Compared to the Amped Edition Maxima, the Vanguard is wider, and a larger sweet spot. Our calculations show that the usable surface area of the face has increased by over 8%, and the reliable sweet spot area on the new paddle is much improved. The edge guard doesn’t extend far into the usable surface area so you can make the most of the paddle’s larger sweet spot. With the hardy X5 poly core, you won’t feel jostled on impact with pickleballs.
