Racket of the well-known VERTEX range of the prestigious Bullpadel brand. It’s the control issue for the year 2018. Composed of carbon and a core of black EVA gum. It has a round shape and a rough surface.
By picking up you get the feeling of a racket very light and easy but very well built. The swing is clearly directed towards the handle. By placing tungsten or lead tapes in the upper part it is possible to put a slightly higher swing for those who prefer.
The feeling is of a racket with a medium-soft touch, a very controlled hit in the back of the field. Presents a medium-high sweet spot. In terms of power is scarce, the texture seems to remove a little more power. In the net the hit must be well executed but without excessive force or, due to its exit, it will go directly to the glass. The control is very good in the defensive phase. It has enough output and is very manageable, it will help you a lot at the back of the field and in transition defense-attack.
The weight tested was 362gr.
The surface is textured.
In sound terms it is a racket that within the line of the other Bullpadel does not hear much.
The safety cord is adjustable which is always more convenient in my opinion.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a pretty solid and well built racket which leads to wanting that can have a long lifespan.
- Excellent defensive game
- High quality materials
- Excessive price
- Little Power
- Something excessive output on the net
In conclusion, this is a racket for players who excel by control and defensive play. It has a medium-soft hit and with enough output. It will help in the defensive stage by its weight distribution and convey very good sensations in the process of transition defense-attack. I didn’t feel any vibration in my arm. The finishes are very good as well as the graphic visual very attractive. It is an exceptional quality racket, which in my opinion serves more defensive or right players. A well-managed racket, very good for anyone who is starting now or for experienced players who make control their main weapon. In terms of round rackets, this will certainly be to your liking.
