Babolat Veron Technical

Our verdict and review of the Babolat Veron Technical after testing the racket is that it is best suited for smashes and heavy overhead shots. The diamond shape and top-heaviness give you the edge in overhead shots. However, it can also mean that you lose some control, given a smaller sweetspot that sits high on the racket’s face.

Babolat Veron Technical characteristics

Babolat Veron Technical characteristics

The first impression of the Veron Technical is that it is a diamond-shaped racket with a nice matte finish and a fresh color scheme, it is virtually identical to the previously released Viper Technical. However, it is more manageable and provides a softer touch than the Viper version, and is, therefore, suitable for a wider audience. A classic design that offers a well-proven and very popular concept.

According to the manufacturer, the Veron series was created to make fast-paced strokes available to more players. The Veron Technical features an innovative hitting surface that is a combination of both carbon fiber and fiberglass, where both materials have been woven together to get the best performance from each – and the result is a more accessible and dynamic pace.

The balance is high and with a sweetspot sitting on the top end of the hitting surface, it makes for great overhead play and explosive smashes. It’s an interesting option for the offensive player who likes to use a double-handed backhand thanks to the long grip.

Babolat Veron Technical Material

Material

The Veron Technical has a core of Black EVA, an elastic foam that provides a good grip and really good comfort and control.

For the hitting surface, they have used a great new technology called Carbon Flex which is a mix of stiff carbon fiber and soft fiberglass where you get the best properties from each material. Padel rackets with a carbon fiber only hitting surface are very powerful, while those with a glass fiber hitting surface give better control. Here, the two have been woven together, and the result has been really successful. 

Furthermore, they have integrated a grooved hitting surface that Babolat calls 3D Spin, which provides higher quality strokes and better effects to fool the opponent during the game.

A vibration dampening system, the new Vibrasorb System, has been incorporated into the neck of the racket just above the grip, which impressively reduces the vibration of each stroke while increasing comfort and ball feel.

If you play a lot, this can be an important factor to bear in mind as the vibration dampening means that each stroke causes less wear and tear on joints such as the elbow and wrist, thus reducing the risk of injury.

Of course, the Veron Technical also features HPS Technology, just like previous Babolat models. The strategically drilled holes are thus adapted to the shape and sweetspot of the racket, generating both extra speed and control.

Of course, the Veron Technical also features HPS Technology, just like previous Babolat models. The strategically drilled holes are thus adapted to the shape and sweet spot of the racket, generating both extra speed and control.

Balance

This racket has a high balance, we have measured it at 270 mm, and a sweetspot that sits on the higher end of the hitting surface. Rackets with a high center of gravity perform at their best in overhead play and smashes, where they really put the ball in motion. They are a little harder to handle defensively, so they are well suited to players who consider attack to be the best defense.

Racket shape

The Veron Technical is a diamond-shaped racket with a high center of gravity. The diamond-shaped versions are for experienced players who have a good technique, and especially those who have an offensive style of play with a lot of overhead play and explosive smashes. The balance is high, therefore creating longer leverage that allows you to control and dominate matches thanks to the extra power you get in your hits.

This is a great first diamond racket as it is more forgiving than many other similar variants, so if you’ve been thinking about trying diamond for the first time and taking your game to the next level then you should definitely take a closer look at Veron Technical.

Hard or soft?

How hard your racket is, in particular, is undoubtedly a very important factor when choosing a new padel racket. Hard rackets provide more power in the strokes, more power for explosive smashes, and are therefore well suited to an offensive style of play at an advanced level. Soft rackets are more forgiving and provide greater margins of error, and are therefore well suited to players who are still perfecting their technique.

Veron Technical is rated as medium-hard, its black EVA foam core is softer than the X-EVA technology used by Babolat in the Viper series. Then the interwoven combination of hard and durable carbon fiber and soft fiberglass in the hitting surface is an exciting feature, it provides a nice blend of both speed and control that we think the general public will like. This racket has a slightly bigger sweetspot than the Viper Technical, which is obviously a plus. 

Brief information about the Babolat brand

Babolat has been specializing in racket sports for almost 150 years, ever since it was founded in the French city of Lyon in 1875. A lot has happened since Pierre Babolat started making strings of natural sinew for the then newly invented tennis racket, now it is a world-leading brand offering a complete product line from rackets, shoes, clothing, balls, and complements.

After more than 100 years of manufacturing strings only, Babolat expanded its range with complete tennis rackets in the early 1990s, which quickly became a favorite among many of the world’s most famous players. When the sport of padel was becoming really popular, which was initially mainly in the Spanish-speaking countries about 20 years ago, Babolat was quick to help the sport develop and produce new types of rackets.

Babolat is an official sponsor of the World Padel Tour (WPT) and is used by, among others, the recent Spanish padel world champion Juan “El Lobo” Lebrón and the Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal.

Babolat Veron Technical player type

PLAYER LEVEL AND TYPE

What level of player is the Babolat Veron Technical good for?

This is undoubtedly a simpler, softer, and more comfortable alternative to the Viper series. The feel is more comfortable, precision is greater and it’s easier to get good speed on the ball without having to take as much of a hit. That said, it’s a racket that requires good technique and it needs an advanced level player to deliver clean hits to get the most out of it. A skilled player may benefit from this racket to take their game to the next level, but for the beginner, there are clearly plenty of better options.

Is this racket best suited for attacking or defensive play?

Its diamond shape and high center of gravity make the Veron technical a racket for the offensive and dynamic type of player who likes to hit the ball out of the cage. Perfect for heavy smashes and a lot of overhead play, providing good pressure in the strokes. However, precision is only delivered with clean hits. This is the most offensive racket in the Veron series.

If you are not classed as a technically well-developed player, you may be penalized in defensive situations. If you like delivering bandejas, especially bandejas de pared, you will most likely like this racket as its characteristics will suit well for this type of game.

Advantages of the Babolat Veron Technical

We think that this could be a racket that many skilled players will like when they want to take their game to a higher level. A simpler, softer, and really comfortable option for those who are curious to start using the diamond shape. The Carbonflex technology provides very good speed thanks to the stiff carbon fiber while the softer glass fiber improves the feel of the hits and the control. You also don’t have to take in as much to get the powerful, heavy strokes you’re after. The long grip is great if you want to go for double-handed backhands.

Plus / Minus
Summary of our review
  • Suitable for smash and heavy overhead strokes
  • Increased sweet spot thanks to carbon and fibreglass
  • Longer grip
  • Relatively difficult to play for beginners

Cons

It’s a relatively difficult racket to play if you still need to hone in on your technique, especially on the defensive end. Clean hitting is a must for this racket to perform at its best. It is a bit disappointing that the design and color scheme is almost identical to the previously released Viper Technical.

Our rating and review for the Babolat Veron Technical after testing the racket

Our rating and review after testing the Babolat Veron Technical is very good, especially for those who like to play a very offensive game with smashes and heavy overhead shots.

Your level of play should be somewhere between intermediate to advanced considering the racket is diamond shaped. Which means you have a smaller sweetspot sitting higher up on the racket. This means you’ll have more power in heavy overhead shots, but also less control.
