I start in Padel next to the tennis that I practice in amateur competition (classified 30) and I am looking for a padel racket rather versatile and easy to play (comfort and sensations) but with a minimum of power of course that would allow me to progress, master the basics and get into some amateur competitions.
There I'm starting of course, I only played a few times but I'm doing pretty well thanks to tennis. In any case, I see that I am really above other beginners who are starting to practice.
If you have snowshoe suggestions good value Artengo style (less than 100 €) I am a taker.
Otherwise I specify that I am a young adult man not with a big physique (68kg for 1m79).
In tennis I play with a Pure Drive Team (285g) for those who know (versatile racket that gives easy power, comfort and good access to the effects): medium weight and neutral balance so rather good handling, roped multifilament ( more arm friendly) but more typed control (Duramix or NXT control for example) to medium voltage (23 or 24kg), that I have to break every 15 about hours.
My level of technique is correct: I control pretty much the effects in the service (flat, slicé and lifted), the back slicé, the volley and straight shots / backhand (flat covered or lifted), which allows me to rather to be well in my debut Padel.
Thank you for your suggestions,

I think I have a profile similar to yours. I have passed many snowshoes and brands. I read good articles on the new decathlon for 90 € (Kuikma). To see for the change of racket.
I'm playing with lamperti's white NOX right now and I'm happy with it. It is considered a high end model. The racket is well balanced and it does the job. Again there was a test article on the interesting site on the subject.
I hope I have been helpful. good luck !

Hi Martin, thank you for your answer!
Indeed I have seen the new Kuikma from Decathlon, they look good but already seem to be aimed at a little more expert players, more than beginners / intermediates in any case!
At Artengo I had seen the 860 or 890 models but I do not know at all what it is worth and no way to try rackets like in tennis.
I admit that the price of snowshoes Padel scares me a little if I compare them to tennis where I had my 2 Pure Drive at around 120 € each string and installation included (on sale on the other hand).
I checked a bit on the other brands side and found these rackets that seem to fall into the price range I want (less than 100 €):
- HEAD: Flash and Flash Pro;
- Bullpadel : Shake and BP 10 EVO;
- StarVie: Zeta and Zeta 2.0;
- Royal Padel : RP 109 Crono and RP 130 factor;
- Dunlop: STING 360 and Titan Killer 2.0;
- Black Crown: Rhino;
- NOX: X-ONE C5;
- Tecnifibre: Wall Master 365.
Haha It's already a lot of models and as impossible to try the rackets it's hot! ^^ '
So here is if someone has already tried one of these models and could give me their opinion that would help me.
My goal for the moment is above all to learn and master basic strokes, play, practice even if I already have a lot of advantage with tennis.
For these snowshoes, many really seem to be so-called initiation snowshoes. As I have already played a few times and I'm doing pretty well I'm just afraid that some of these rackets will quickly reach their limit and force me to invest again a few weeks later…
I take any advice from you in any case 🙂
