With a weight balance closer to the handle, round-shaped padel rackets are very manoeuvrable. Their round sweet-spot is quite forgiving and located in the middle of the head. These padel rackets provide excellent control, which is a great asset for not only casual but also highly skilled defensive paddle players. The downside of round padel rackets is their lack of power for smashes.
If you are unsure of what shape you prefer, you can never go wrong with a round padel racket.
Teardrop-shaped padel rackets have a center of balance between the middle and the top of the racket, are versatile but have a focus on providing more powerful shots into your arsenal. We have aimed to make them as manoeuvrable as possible given the balance closer to the head.
They will suit intermediate and advanced players who prefer a more aggressive playstyle.
All our padel rackets are built from Japanese carbon fiber, high grade fiberglass or a combination of the two which we refer to as composites.
Our beginner rackets are built from fiberglass, fiberglass is not as stiff as carbon fiber making the rackets you build out of it easier to play with, it is also less expensive which allows us to offer high quality rackets at entry level pricepoints.
Our intermediate level rackets are built out of a carbon / fiberglass composite. They are not quite as stiff as 100% carbon rackets but they will allow players that are growing their technical capabilities to get more precision and power out of their rackets.
Our advanced level rackets are built out of 100% carbon fiber. They are the lightest, and most demanding rackets we offer. The best players will need to use all their skills to get the most out of these rackets.
In our higher range Power frames, we offer the choice between hard and soft touch rackets.
Hard Touch rackets have a high-density foam inside. These rackets are a bit heavier, and they offer extra punch in your smashes. They are ideal for the players that want ultimate power.
Soft Touch rackets have a medium-density foam inside. These rackets are a bit lighter, and they offer more stability and control. They are ideal for players that want superior precision.
Most padel rackets for adult players weigh between 360g and 375g . This is also a good weight range for players looking for a mix of power and control.
Below 370g , a padel racket is easier to move, better suited for reaction volleys but less powerful. A lightweight padel racket will suit casual players, women (340 to 370g) and kids between 5 and 10 years (280 to 340g).
Over 375g , a padel racket brings more power, but is also less maneuverable and less control oriented. A heavy racket will be more efficient for the offensive game but needs excellent physical skills.
In summary, the higher the weight, the higher the skill level required.
