How To Choose A Padel Racket

Before we start, it is important to know a few basics. 

There a few large factors that differentiate padel rackets. They are, shape, weight, sweet spot location, material, and feel. 

  • Round shape is best for control, diamond for power, and teardrop for a mix of both power and control. 
  • Fiber glass is a softer material, better for comfort, and carbon is a firmer material, better for durability and power.

It is understandable that people come to choose a racket and have no idea what to get! That is why we have created this list to help.

A junior racket needs to be light, soft, control based, easy to use, and also look great as well. 

The adipower junior ticks all of these boxes, a super cool racket that has a similar design to the adipower CTRL 3.2 (a pro level racket).

The comfort and lightweight feel will get you into good habits, such as holding the racket up, and playing with great control.

The Nox X One is ideal for beginner players, it ticks a lot of boxes. 

Round, control based, big sweet spot, comfortable feel, easy to play with, and at a low price. 

New players to the sport need a racket with these characteristics, in order to improve FAST, and learn the new tricky techniques of padel as quick as possible.

The Nox X One allows for this, available in a blue, and yellow design.

Best Padel Racket For Intermediate

It is class, cool design for starters, diamond shape, with great power, and strong material. 

Intermediate players can start to move into Diamond shaped rackets, this one works especially well due to the wide sweet spot, and due to the medium balance is easy to use.

It also uses carbon, which is rare in a racket at this price, great value. 

You can get fast ball speed, good power, but most of all, due to the soft face of the racket, great comfort.

Well worth checking out.

Feel – Medium/Hard

This is the Nox AT10 18K. One of the best padel rackets out there. 

The Nox AT10 18K is world padel tour standard, used by one of the best players in the world, Agustin Tapia.

It has a carbon frame, 12K carbon surface, anti vibration system, DCS (improves durability), rough surface, and smart strap.

A few of the key features include:

For ultimate control, you are going to need a top level racket, that it is adaptable, round, with a big centred sweet spot, low balance, and strong material. 

The adidas Metalbone ctrl has ALL of that. 

The best part of this racket, is the fact it has 6 customisable weights, so you can change the weight and balance for YOU.

Best Padel Racket For Power

Bullpadel Hack 03

Shape – Diamond

The Bullpadel Hack 03 Padel Racket wins the best padel racket for power, the speed on this, is brutal. 

If you want a bigger smash, then this is for you. This is SPECIFICALLY designed for players who want to kick the ball out of the court.

Our best selling advanced padel racket last year. If everyone else loves it, why not you?

A very distinctive sound to rattle your opponents on court with, you will notice this straight away when you play a smash.

Best Padel Racket For Balance Of Power + Control

Bullpadel Vertex Hybrid

Another Bullpadel model here, and that is due to them being one of the best padel brands on the market. 

For players that want that perfect mix of power and control, the vertex Hybrid is for you.

When you play with the Vertex Hybrid, the smash, vibora, and attacking off the back glass are easy, they fly off the racket with extreme pace, but due to the big sweet spot and nice balance, the control is easy as well.

This also comes equipped with a rough surface, to create devastating topspin on your smash and brutal slice on your volleys, your opponents have no chance!

I recently made a video, testing which rackets had the most power, the Vertex Hybrid performed very well, I was able to smash the ball out easily. 

Best Padel Racket For Comfort

Royal Padel Whip Hybrid

Shape – Teardrop

Weight – Average

Sweet Spot – Above The Centre

Material – Carbon/Polyethyleyne

Royal padel rackets are amazing because they are very unique, they are SPECIFICALLY designed for players that have tennis elbow. 

So if you have any aches or arm strains, royal padel rackets will solve this. 

In particular the Whip hybrid from royal padel, are IDEAL for this. They are super soft, comfortable, flexible, and when you strike the ball it feels like you are using a cushion. 

In the whip, it uses polyethylene, this is something that is used across all royal padel rackets, and it is super soft, comfortable and absorbs vibrations to your arm. 

Best Padel Racket For Value

Nox Equation

Shape – Round

Weight – Average

Sweet Spot – In The Centre

Material – Carbon + Fiber glass

Feel – Soft

The reason the Nox equation makes the list, is down to two factors:

  • It has a carbon frame
  • It has a rough surface
 
Most rackets with these features start at £150, whereas this year, this model is £110. An absolute steal!

This is one of the best padel rackets for players that do not want to spend too much, but still get a great racket for a good price.
