Three different shapes of rackets exist, each one corresponds to a gameplay style.
Balance is generally related to the racket shape.
The manufacturers of padel rackets use the same main materials namely fiberglass, of the carbon fiber and kevlar. These different materials aim to provide strength, control and power.
Like a relaxed string, a soft material will give more power but less control, while a hard material will provide more control of the strike with less power.An article will also be devoted to this subject.
Other "secondary" materials are involved in the manufacture of a racket such as the EVA gum, thefoam, titanium, graphite, etc.
In the core of the racket there are mainly two types of foam. The EVA rubber, and all its variations according to the different brands, and FOAM (polyethylene foam).
These two types of foam have opposite characteristics even if the brands have made changes to have a wide variation of each foam
Weight directly influences the way you play and is related to your playing style. The greater the weight, the more powerful strike. And conversely, the lower the weight, the faster and more precise you will be, but with power loss.
The weight of a padel racket varies between 300g and 390g.
