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.

 

Shapes of Padel rackets (balance)

Padel Rackets

Diamond: these rackets are suitable for advanced players. The sweet spot is smaller and is located higher up in the racket. It makes it easier to hit the ball hard. They are not easy to handle for beginners.

Round: these are best for beginners. The sweet spot of the racket is rather big and it is located in the middle of it. The weight of the rackets is evenly distributed. These sorts of rackets are usually easy to handle.

Tear: There rackets are suitable for medium or advanced players. The sweet spot is higher up the racket.
