Combining Selkirk's innovative technologies with Sock's championship experience, this paddle promised to be a game-changer. But does it live up to the hype? We put the Luxx Control Air Invikta Jack Sock to the test to find out.

Jack Sock's Signature Pickleball Paddle Review

The LUXX Control Air Invikta immediately strikes you with its premium look and feel. The paddle features a sleek, black and red design with Jack Sock's signature on the handle. It's clear that Selkirk put a lot of thought into the aesthetics of this paddle but, since we all know that beauty is only skin deep, we were eager to see how it performed on the court. 

We found the Luxx Control Air Invikta to be a truly versatile paddle. The midweight construction and FiberFlex technology provided excellent control for dinking and drop shots. Yet, the paddle still packed enough punch for powerful drives and volleys.

One of the standout features of this paddle is Selkirk's X5 Thikset Core. This advanced core material delivers a crisp and responsive feel on every shot. Whether you're attacking the net or playing the baseline, the LUXX Control Air Invikta gives you the confidence to swing for the fences.

What type of player should use Jack Sock's Signature Padde? 

The Selkirk LUXX Control Air Invikta Jack Sock is a great option for a wide range of players. Its versatility makes it suitable for both beginners and experienced players alike. However, we believe this paddle would be particularly well-suited for aggressive baseliners and players who like to control the point with precise shot placement.

Paddle Expert’s Thoughts 

The Selkirk LUXX Control Air Invikta Jack Sock is a top-of-the-line paddle that delivers on its promises. It offers a perfect blend of power, control, and comfort, making it a great choice for players of all skill levels. If you're looking for a paddle that can help you take your game to the next level, the LUXX Control Air Invikta is worth considering.

Weighing in at around 8.3 ounces, the LUXX Control Air Invikta falls into the middleweight paddle category. This weight is ideal for players who want a balance between power and maneuverability. The paddle also features Selkirk's proprietary FiberFlex technology, which creates a larger sweet spot for cleaner shots.
