What characterizes the attacking game?To have an offensive and effective game, you need to make quick choices, identify the right moment to build up and play the definitive shot and above all be decisive in every technical gesture. The attacking game is by definition a 'high risk - high reward' tactic: to reduce the risk margin, you need to be sure that when you have the opportunity, the shot will hit. This aspect will improve your confidence in your shots and therefore your execution. How do you get the feeling that your 'wall exit' is always a winner?: With lots of training, and a power racket .
Why do we talk about 'power racket'?The definition 'power racket' might seem misleading.
First of all, a distinction must be made: if you are familiar with the world of padel, you will have heard of the 'salida de bola', or ball output, as a parameter that indicates how much the racket helps you to 'push' the ball.
As anti-intuitive as it may seem, the rackets with the best ball output are those with control. These are generally softer rackets, which give life to a sort of 'trampoline effect'. Having a better ball output from the racket means you don't need to accelerate your arm to play: arm under control equals shot under control.
Rackets intended for a powerful and offensive game are generally harder : thanks to their stiffness, they don't retain the energy imparted by a fast technical move but transfer it entirely to the ball, making it accelerate much more easily.In summary, the power racket is the one that makes decisive shots (smash, high volleys, wall exits, etc.) more effective and explosive, i.e. those that are played by accelerating the arm and 'forcing' the movement.
What makes Varlion rackets unique?Quality of materials, effectiveness of design and variety.
The range of Varlion attack padel rackets has a number of features that make them among the best on the market.
For example, the stiffness of models like the Bourne Carbon Titan , the Cañon Carbon Pro Black and the LW Carbon 7 is due in large part to the Hexagon frame , a hexagonal prism structure that helps discharge vibrations and gives the racket an anchor greater strength and durability.
Instead, in other models we find the unique element in the bridge of the racket, such as in the Avant Carbon Difusor , in the Cañon Difusor Black and in the Maxima Summum Prisma W , or rather the Wing Diffusor : a bridge designed to allow the passage of air (facilitating a fast technical gesture) and at the same time be able to absorb vibrations.
Why are power rackets recommended for a higher level of play?Premise: this is general advice and not a rule: the most suitable racket for your level may be the one you least expect.
If, on the other hand, you are a "norm" padel player, we assure you that a power racket is more difficult to use effectively than a control racket, for a number of reasons.
From a technical point of view, as we said before, to exploit the offensive potential of an attacking racket, you need to look for shots that allow you to hit hard. To do this, you need to accelerate the movement with your arm, significantly increasing your risk coefficient and the possibility of not catching the ball in the 'sweet spot'.
Rackets, styles and level of play are 3 elements that influence the 'pace' at which a game is played. A game played with power rackets will produce quick, or high paced, rallies. This aspect immediately raises the level of the game, as it is more difficult to play in a hurry while remaining effective, but not only. Putting the racket on a very violent hit causes very strong vibrations that start from the point of impact with the ball. While a soft racket is able to absorb them, a power racket, due to its stiffness, will not be able to hold any vibrations allowing them to reach your arm directly, raising the likelihood of inflammatory joint and muscle problems . To avoid this negative side, it is necessary to be accustomed and physically conditioned to withstand such shocks.
Offensive play also carries risks on a tactical level. Winning shots are by definition riskier, with less margin for error and therefore require more precise execution, as well as good tactical acumen.
