Once technical characteristics of Veron and Viper snowshoes Babolat studied in detail, now is the time to take action.

Veron: versatility with a touch of power

Having carefully analyzed the differences between the two types of cores, the three available shapes and the four coating options, we will now confront these rackets with the reality on the ground. After a series of in-depth tests spanning ten sessions, I am able to share my impressions and provide an accurate account of my experience. This information will be valuable to you if you are considering purchasing a racket Babolat and you find yourself faced with the dilemma of choosing between these two collections.

Before diving into the explosive world of Viper references, let's explore together the Veron range of Babolat. Designed for a wide variety of playing styles and for levels ranging from honorable to advanced, the Veron family offers a racket for every profile. From the spirited beginner to the technical player, every enthusiast will find what they are looking for in this nomenclature.

Let's start with the Counter Veron

This round shaped pala oversize offers a remarkable gaming experience, characterized by extreme typing comfort that stands out within the range Babolat. Its huge sweet spot and overt power make it ideal for players looking to improve their skills with maximum confidence.

On the court, this racket demonstrates undeniable performance, adapting remarkably to all aspects of the game. However, I have reservations regarding the round shapes offered by Babolat, which can lack maneuverability due to a feeling of heaviness and inertia, especially at deck level. The weight distribution seems to have been studied to improve impact and stability, and if the hitting sensation is extremely comfortable, the balance of the racket, less centered towards the handle than one might expect, could pose a problem for novices.

Players who have acquired an advanced technical level will find that the Counter Veron offers interesting versatility, with satisfactory effectiveness in attack, but slightly less pronounced in defense. This racquet is therefore an attractive option for players wishing to progress with a comfortable reference, while benefiting from a beneficial touch of power thanks to a well-adjusted balance.

The strengths of this model include remarkable typing comfort, a huge sweet spot and adequate power, making it suitable for various playing styles and particularly those with some previous experience in padel, but always looking for additional insurance with each stroke.

Air Veron: maneuverability and defensive performance for improving players

Lightweight and incredibly docile, this teardrop-shaped Air Veron offers a unique playing experience. Its generous sweet spot and admirable ball release always allow reassuring and contained shots. However, the offensive aspect is slightly less marked than on the Counter Veron during intense exchanges. In comparison, the Air Veron is less powerful, but it offers unrivaled handling pleasure thanks to the impressive swing speed it allows.

It's important to note that as the least formidable racquet in the Veron collection, it may not be suitable for players looking for maximum power. This may seem surprising, as its teardrop shape should, in theory, generate more power than the round shape of the Counter model. However, in practice, the Air Veron, although less offensive due to its incredible lightness, proves easier to handle during very fast phases of play, and more efficient in defense.

I particularly recommend this model to players in the learning and development phase, due to its exceptional maneuverability and its consistently extended sweet spot.

Technical Veron: the ultimate offensive weapon in the Veron range

The diamond shape of this model leaves no doubt about its intentions: it is designed for offensive play. Its head weight facilitates powerful strikes, and the popular features of the Veron range, such as pleasant typing comfort and always generous punto dulce are still there.

Full-power shots inspire confidence and provide complete satisfaction with a consistent feeling of precision. The Carbonflex coating, the central element of the racket, offers an advantageous ball release in defense as well as on off-center hits. This Veron model particularly caught my attention and I am convinced that it will appeal to most intermediate to advanced players, especially those who favor aggressive attacks while being able to overcome certain technical shortcomings.

I invite you to stay tuned for the third part of this file, which will be devoted to the Viper models. These rackets are the ideal choice for aggressive players who like to hit the ball vehemently, regardless of their position on the court. I'm sure they're looking forward to this final chapter, so don't miss the rest!
