Bullpadel Hack 02 characteristics
This is Spanish top player Paquito Navarro’s own competition racket. Bullpadel has accustomed us to always being at the forefront of material choices and new technology, but the Hack 02 maintains the extremely high level of the previous season and now raises the bar even further.
Obviously, the best possible quality has been invested in one of Bullpadel’s absolute premium rackets, which delivers awesome power combined with fantastic control. They have managed to produce a very versatile racket, perfect for the player who wants to vary his game. It focuses primarily on speed and power, with the high balance setting the stage for brutal smashes, but the core of the Adaptia provides surprisingly good control with a lovely sweetspot.
The new Custom Weight system makes it an extremely versatile racket that can be varied as needed.
The design with a black background and color scheme in blue and orange makes it a fresh racket that will get the thumbs up from its users.
SpecificationsInformation about the racket
Shape: Drop format/Hybrid
Game Type: Offensive
Player performance level: Advanced
Weight: 370 g (+/-10)
Carbon Tube 100% carbon fiber with 3D Nerve technology, is the most durable and wear-resistant frame available on the market. It resists the twists and turns that occur when hitting the ball, ensuring the biggest sweetspot possible and harmony between power and control.
For the inner core, Bullpadel has chosen Adaptia, which is a Multi-EVA foam that combines different densities. The outer foam layer is harder and therefore reacts to hard balls and puts extra speed on your strokes. The inner layer, on the other hand, is softer and gives you exquisite control over softer shots.
The racket has a hitting surface made of Tricarbon, which are extremely thin and light carbon fiber threads that have been woven together in three different directions, thus creating a faster reaction in the racket’s core immediately after ball impact. The result is higher speed, a great ball feel, and tremendous durability.
Custom Weight System – the new weight system developed by Bullpadel allows you to customize the weight and balance of the racket to your needs, to achieve the best possible power and balance depending on your opposition. It is divided into two parts: the Protector Custom Weight, which consists of 1-3 small metal plates, each weighing 3 grams, that you can attach to the frame protector, and the Grip Custom Weight, which consists of interchangeable bottom plugs weighing 5 or 10 grams.
Metalshield is a very durable frame protector made of lightweight aluminum that adapts perfectly to the new Custom Weight System, allowing you to place the weight plates where you think they fit best. In addition, it protects your racket from knocks, scratches, and cracks.
Vibradrive comes in the entire Pro Line series and is the vibration dampening system developed by Bullpadel. It is a silicone-like material that lies along the entire handle to make the racket as gentle as possible, thereby reducing the risk of injuries such as tennis elbow. It also improves the feel and comfort the player gets at the moment of hitting.
Hesacore is an ergonomic grip that comes pre-assembled on this model, all to ensure that your racket is as comfortable as possible in your hand and gives you the optimum contact area with the grip. It not only reduces vibration but also provides more power, control, and comfort.
This is a racket with a high balance, to provide maximum efficiency in offense. A high balance is something we usually see in the diamond-shaped models, but here it has been chosen for a drop-shaped racket to give extra potency in the attacking game without sacrificing control and comfort in other match situations.
A big advantage of the Hack is that the balance can be easily adjusted if necessary thanks to the Custom Weight System. Placing one weight at the top of the frame guard makes the racket more top-heavy, whereas placing two weights on either side makes the center of gravity more balanced. If you want a lower balance, you can replace the bottom plug to get even more control.
Hack is a drop-shaped racket designed to provide speed without giving up control. The drop-shaped models are really meant to be an all-round racket, as its characteristics make it work well in all types of strokes and playing situations. Here, a high balance has been chosen for a more offensive racket, but it can be adjusted if you need it through the Custom Weight System.
Another characteristic of the drop-shaped rackets is the large sweetspot, or ideal hitting surface, which you will also find on this model. It makes it a more playable racket in comparison to the offensive diamonds.
Hard or soft?
This is classed as a medium-hard racket. The frame is stiff to allow you to get the highest possible speed on the balls, which is also supported by the outer layers of the core. The inner layer of the core has a lower density, and therefore works very well for controlling looser shots. The hitting surface is more flexible than regular carbon fiber, but still hard, which makes the racket more demanding on the player’s technique.
What level of player is the Bullpadel Hack 02 suitable for?
The Hack is made for professionals or players at an advanced level who want a complete all-round racket that is guaranteed to deliver what is required in all types of opposition. It requires technique and skill for this racket to reach its full potential – hard rackets provide very good speed but require a better technique to allow optimal control.
The weight and balance adjustment is a fantastic addition, but it takes an experienced player to know how to use it to their advantage in the best way.
Is the racket best suited for offensive or defensive play?
The offensive player who uses a lot of overhead shots and has smashes as their weapon of choice, but still likes to use sensitive placement and skillful bandejas has the perfect option here. An offensive all-round racket is really the most accurate description.
For the player who is not as offensive-minded and wants more control, we can recommend the Hack CTR variant.
