Omni 31P XO Graphite Polymer
THE OMNI 31P XO GRAPHITE POLYMER ELONGATED GLEN PETERSON SIGNATURE DESIGN PADDLE by Selkirk.
The elongated shape of the Omni allows intermediate to advanced players to perform advanced shots. The Omni utilizes Seklirk's Polymer PowerCoreTM and EdgeSentryTM technologies along with a Graphite face to produce a solid yet very lightweight elongated paddle. If you want a unique paddle that gives you an edge on the court, the Omni is for you.
This paddle is the perfect combination of power and control makes or breaks an elongated paddle. Because of the slim design of an elongated paddle, you need a core that provides consistency and pop but also touch to control the ball. We achieve this with our Polymer PowerCoreTM combined with our Graphite surface. The OMNI has the perfect balance of power and control for an elongated paddle.
Weight matters tremendously for elongated paddles. Elongated paddles tend to be head heavy because of the extra length. This will wear on your wrist over extended play. A head heavy paddle also hinders you from quickly whipping the paddle around for a perfectly timed shot. Selkirk’s goal was to manufacture an elongated paddle in the lightweight class. We achieved an average weight of 7.1oz - 7.3oz because of our EdgeSentryTM edgegaurd technology which is extremely lightweight and durable. The EdgeSentryTM edgegaurd balances the Omni paddle perfectly which allows you to not just get the paddle on the ball but also to make the game-winning shot.
Is the Omni only for singles play? While it is true that elongated paddles usually are suited best for singles play, the Omni is designed to excel in both doubles and singles play. This is because the shape is slightly wider than most elongated paddles. The extra width increases the sweet spot size. In fact, the Omni allows for a couple shots that will be sure to give you an advantage in doubles. Because you have a longer reach with the Omni, you can drive a slightly high dink back into your opponents. The increased length also allows you to take advantage of angles better.
Will it take me a while to get used to the Omni? A typical elongated paddle will take you a while to get used to because the slim design requires more precision and the head heavy weight can be difficult to master. However, the Omni avoids both of these issues because it is slightly wider and lightweight (7.1oz - 7.3oz). We’ve had 5.0 players change to this paddle mid-tournament and love it!
Can I only use a shake hand grip with the Omni? We designed the Omni to work excellent with the shake hand grip and with the normal continental grip. The shake hand grip is the common grip in Table Tennis where you hold the paddle up high with one finger on the paddle face. The shorter grip length of the Omni allows you to use a shake hand grip comfortably. However, the grip is still long enough to use the standard continental grip, but you won't be able to do a two-handed backhand with it.
