When you choose a Padel racket, there are different elements to take into account. These main elements are the weight, shape and composition of the racket. If you rechc
Today we will see in detail the composition of the racket and more particularly the Different types of foam that we can find on the rackets of Padel.
There are 2 types of foam mainly used in the composition of a padel racket: foam Eva and foam Foam.
Raquette composed of a foam foam
You should know that the foam foam is a flexible eraser. It will allow the racket to have more than sensations, more than Player comfort and more than power During the majority of blows. On the other hand, with this foam, the Padel racket has less control than with an EVA foam.
This type of foam is recommended for people with tendonitis problems. Indeed, one of the big advantages of this foam is that it has a Shock absorption capacity And much more important vibrations than its neighbor Eva. Here are some examples of pleasant and easy to play FOAM rackets that you can easily adopt: Head Evo Sanyo, Babolat Reflex, Wilson Balde Elite and the Head Alpha Elite.
As with the rope of a tennis racket, the more flexible the foam, the more the racket takes advantage of an elastic effect to bring out the ball faster than it arrived during the impact in the racket. This is why the foam mosses have characteristics that give the Padel racket a better outlet of the ball and therefore a greater power.
Raquette composed of an Eva foam
EVA foams are more rigid foam than Foam foam. They bring more control during the ball shot but less feeling and comfort of play. These padel rackets are "harsher" impact, and the more Eva gum is rigid, the more you have the feeling of playing with a wooden board. These foam rackets Eva are less powerful than their neighbors in Foam. Indeed, during a normal ball strike, the racket will not have this trampoline effect which allows it to give speed in the ball.
Some padel snowshoes are made up of several EVA layers in order to reduce the rigid effect of the racket:
- There inner layer of the nucleus: in general rather flexible and low density, it allows to be mainly used During little powerful ball strikes. It is therefore aimed at making the racket pleasant to play on these low intensity strokes by giving it more touch and more comfort of play.
- There outer layer of the nucleus: generally more compact and rigid, is used during more intense ball strikes And allows you to have a better ball outing. It is this layer that is very useful when you hit very flat.
Rackets with Eva foam are generally represented by high -end snowshoes of each brand. We find in particular the Wilson Bela Pro, there Babolat Air Viper or even Technifibre Wall Master 375. There Bullpadel Vertex 03 And Vertex 03 CTR are two examples of rackets having Several layers of Eva foam.
With what foam is we the most powerful ??
Having read this article, you will naturally tell me that you need a racket with a foam foam to gain power. But it's a little more complex than that ...
Because beware! The elasticity that allows the foam foam to be powerful at its limits.
Indeed, you wonder why you have more trouble getting the ball out of the ground with a flexible racket than with a rigid racket?
It is generally improper use of the Foam foam racket which is linked to this feeling.
Eh yes ! With a foam foam, it is counterproductive to hit with all your might in the ball in Smash. You will, by doing this, "break" the elasticity of the foam foam and get the ball out much less quickly than expected. Romain de Padelonomics also explains it very well on video.
With this type of racket, it is advisable to have a better gesture that will allow more effect than power in the ball in order to make this famous "Smash by 3"
In conclusion, if you are looking for power in all your blows but the Smashs are not your priority, we advise you to go on A racket with a foam foam.
On the other hand, If you are a big "smasheur" And whether you feel the need to hit the ball very hard in order to get it out of the field or bring it back to your camp, we advise you to go on a foam Eva / Multieva.
