In a recent post, we help you choose your racket, depending on your level, your technique and/or your style of play. We present to you the three shapes of snowshoes traditional: round, drop of water (or tear) and diamond.

However, there is another type, increasingly common among resellers and which we have not covered in our article: hybrid rackets.

As their name suggests, hybrid rackets are a mix of two shapes. Currently, there are two types:

  • Between the water drop shape and the diamond shape, we can find a hybrid form, which will be more focused on power. As an example of this form, we have the news Bullpadel Hack 03 Hybrid, recently tested by Stéphane Penso.

  • Between the round shape and the water drop shape, there is also a hybrid form, this time, more focused on control. For example, we have the Maxima Summum Prisma Radio from Varlion.

So, if you come across these two hybrid forms in particular, don't panic, because you now know what you can expect from them!

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
