Babolat Air Vertuo is a very good solution for players that are looking for a more affordable racket but doesn’t go down on quality. Babolat has made a very good racket for intermediate players where the sweet spot on the racket is bigger and more forgiving than in the more expensive and more professional rackets.
Babolat Airl Vertuo has a carbon frame that makes the racket very durable and in combination with the fiberglass surface and the soft fibers used in creating the racket you will get a racket with a lot of power and a soft feeling. Normally Babolat makes rackets with a harder feeling but with the new Air Vertuo they have changed a bit with their black EVA and made this a lovely soft feeling.
So if you want a racket that gives you a soft feeling and a good mix of power and control this is the racket you should choose. This is also a racket that is a bit lighter than the normal rackets from Babolat as the weight is around 345g. This also minimizes the risk of getting elbow pain that is the most common injury padel players are fighting with.
