Amazing racket that allow me to play with pleinty power and control. Very soft and great feeling.

Bullpadel VERTEX 2 2017

I had the older bullpadel vertex before, blue and orange and now I bought the new one bullpadel vertex 2, it's even better than the other. I tried many rackets in my club and I chose this one.

My wife and me play with Head Impulse every week-end and we are happy even if our level is intermediate.

How to choose your Padel Rackets

In general:

Soft rackets: provide power to your shots as their higher elasticity will give extra energy to the ball. On the other hand, they reduce your control. These rackets will help you defend yourself at the back end of the court (as it will help your hits reach the other side) and will provide power on the volley. Obviously, soft rackets tend to last less than hard racquets as softer materials are easier to damage.

Hard rackets: unlike the soft ones, hard rackets provide control and power. They are more demanding than soft ones; because what they lack in rebound power needs to be provided by your arm and therefore you must have a good technique to optimize your impacts..

It is difficult to recommend hardness to beginners or initiation players, as for example, a woman who starts probably needs a softer racket than a man as they tend to have more strength. As we improve our technique, features explained we should then choose based on the, which racket hardness suits our game better.

 

Weight

Rackets can be generally divided into lighter (less than 375 grams) or heavier ones (over 375 grams). Each of these will give our swing different performance and we should therefore choose the weight depending on what are we after.
In this regard, note that while we will be able to move a lightweight racket with greater ease and speed (ideal for volley game) with a light racket we can however lose power in our shots, especially as we get tired. A heavy racket will be more difficult to move but, on the other hand, it will give us more power at impact.
