I've never yet joined a tournament, hence I can't say what level of play I perform at. But I've played some tennis, badminton and table-tennis, and after a year of playing pickleball I seem to be able to beat players who are rated as 3.0 to 3.5. I play about 6-8 hrs a week.
...In the fourth month of using the paddle, I began to notice that some of my shots began hit the net and I was only able to overcome this by swinging at the ball with more force. By September, I was swinging so hard that my elbow began to experience some strain. The sweet-spot had lost it's pop. And to be clear, this paddle has never had an accident or been abused. This is my $149 baby and nobody uses it except me.
When I contacted the seller about the lifetime warranty, I was informed that I needed to go through their website--so instead of a free return through Amazon, I had to ship it to their office in Idaho which cost me $29.
I have not heard back from them yet. STAND-BY FOR AN UPDATE.
Thanks to Selkirk for replacing my 2019 paddle with the 2020 one at no charge to me (except for the shipping costs).
So here's what I think about the 2020 Amped S2:
It has a little more control than the 2019 version but has lost much of it's pop. This is good news if you're more of a finesse player but bad news if you like to drive the ball. Personally I preferred the 2019 version better which I thought had the right balance of power vs control--the only problem being that the sweet spot went flat within just a few months of play. This is a little disappointing for a paddle at this price point but on the positive side, their warranty seems to be intact (just be prepared to pay for shipping costs).
