Bullpadel Vertex 03 2021

Our verdict on the Bullpadel Vertex 3 is that it is a very good padel racket for those who want to play an offensive game with very powerful overhead strokes. A dense carbon surface on the racket combined with a high balance gives you extra pressure in the smash.

We’ve also gathered reviews from two other online sources, both of which give the racket an average rating of 4.25 out of 5.0. At the bottom of the article you’ll find the reviews.

Bullpadel Vertex 03 characteristics

The Vertex 03 is top Argentine player, Maxi Sanchez’s, personal racket when he plays at the WPT and is designed for players who want the same dynamic offense of a true pro. This bestseller is created to provide maximum power and only the best performance to high level players with advanced technical ability.

They’ve really gone all out when it comes to materials and new technology here. In the racket neck, we find the new Air React Channel technology that channels the air passing through the racket, providing a more explosive ball strike and optimizing the precision of the strokes. Not only that, but the Custom Weight System allows you to transform it, making it more of an all-round racket by allowing you to easily change both the weight and balance of your racket, depending on what the opposition and situation requires. 

Although it’s a racket made for players in offense, it still delivers perfect control and precision all over the court, the Top Spin surface layer ensures you get a great feel in lobs and bandejas.

Any good racket has to be pleasing to the eye as well, and here a nice combo of classic moves from the previous model with a fresh new update has been achieved. The daring design manages to conquer its target audience again this year, the checkered grey/black background with orange and silver details makes it a real collector’s item.

Material

This racket is an extremely effective weapon in offense. The frame of the Vertex 03 is made of 100% carbon fiber Carbon Tube with Nerve technology that transforms the entire construction and provides a stiff frame with incomparable durability.

The hitting surface is made of XT Carbon 12k, which is much denser, faster, and stronger than the usual 3k. 12k means that an extremely dense weave has been made that has no less than 12,000 carbon fiber threads per cm². This improves the durability of the racket and the feel of the ball at the moment of impact while putting a lot of speed into the strokes. The surface has been complemented with the Top Spin rough layer, which provides great grip and spin on the balls – perfect if you want to look like Maxi Sanchez.

ADAPTIA is the name of the core of the Multi-EVA foam, which provides unparalleled comfort and efficient ball striking, thanks to the different density of the material. The two outer layers are harder, while the inner one is softer and therefore helps to reduce vibrations. 

One of the big innovations is the Air React Channel, an aerodynamic arch that sits above the grip and adds much greater stability to the frame construction at the same time as making it lighter. The result is a smoother racket that delivers a faster response thanks to the air passing through the heart of the racket via a hollow channel. 

The Custom Weight System is an accessory that became incredibly popular last season, allowing the racket to be fully customized to the player’s needs. Up to three metal plates can be purchased, each weighing 5 grams, which can then be placed around the racket head for added weight and balance. In addition, the bottom plug is interchangeable with others weighing either 5 or 10 grams, allowing the characteristics of the racket to be modified to suit the conditions.

Metalshield adapts perfectly to the customized weighting system while protecting your racket from hits and scratches. 

Vibradrive is a vibration dampening system that the racket has integrated, to reduce the risk of injury to elbows, wrists, and shoulders.

The racket comes pre-assembled with the Hesacore ergonomic grip, which provides a racket that sits comfortably in the hand while helping to make it more playable. The wrist strap is a much more comfortable option than the classic cord, here a wider option has been chosen that feels very comfortable.

Balance

Here we have a top-heavy diamond racket where every fiber is made to give the maximum speed and power in the cage. The Vertex 03 also has an exquisite sweetspot, which you will benefit from in the overhead game as power goes hand in hand with precision. A racket this powerful should be banned, your opponents won’t stand a chance.

Racket shape

The Vertex 03 has a diamond-shaped racket head and is made to give the player the perfect attacking weapon. This type of racket is not for those who are new to the court, being able to handle a top-heavy diamond racket requires technical skill and being able to read the game well. 

Diamond is undoubtedly the shape to go for when it comes to an effective attacking game, nothing delivers as powerful smashes as high center of gravity rackets do. If you’re looking to be able to hit the ball out of the cage as soon as the opportunity presents itself, then this is the racket for you.

Hard or soft?

This is a hard racket, from the stiff frame to the compact hitting surface. The only soft component is the inner core, which has been added to reduce the vibrations created when hitting the ball, thus helping to reduce the risk of injuries such as tennis elbow. Hard rackets like this have been designed to give players maximum power in their strokes and exquisite precision in all positions.

What level of player is the Bullpadel Vertex 03 suitable for?

Ideal for the skilled player with a well-developed technique who has an aggressive attacking game, it is a racket that allows you to put maximum pressure on your opponents but it also requires you to know how to use it. A top-heavy diamond-shaped racket like this is not for the beginner or the recreational player but is aimed at the advanced level and competitive players. The idea behind the Vertex 03 is to suit high level players who base their game on offensive attacks and speed, but who still demand ultimate control and comfort.

Is the racket best suited for offense or defense?

This is undoubtedly one of the most popular rackets on the market for players in offense, who need more power in each stroke to decide the score, and is designed specifically for those who want maximum speed without losing control. Each component is chosen with strength and explosiveness in mind and as a whole, the racket exceeds all expectations.

The Vertex 03 offers two additional model variants for the skilled player. For those who are not quite so suited to offensive play, it is worth taking a closer look at the Vertex 03 Control and Vertex 03 Comfort.

Brief information about the brand

Bullpadel is a Spanish brand based in Madrid, which has been manufacturing padel rackets for just over 15 years. Ever since its inception, it quickly became a reference among the talented players on the pro tour, as Bullpadel made itself known for always delivering rackets that are made of the best materials and the latest technology. Then there’s the fact that they always surprise us with some exciting novelty every year when the new season’s collection is presented, as well as their modern designs that always come with stylish color schemes.

Many believe that the key to Bullpadel’s success is that they work closely with many of the WPT’s top players, producing new rackets that are completely in line with the player’s individual preferences. Padel is an evolving sport, which is why it’s so important that manufacturers keep up and don’t settle for the old ways. The desire to constantly improve and excel is shared by both Bullpadel and the players who represent them on the court, such as Maxi Sanchez, Paquito Navarro, and Alejandra Salazar.

Benefits of Bullpadel Vertex 03

The player who enjoys an aggressive game and wants to dominate every point from start to finish has an excellent premium racket that will attract plenty of attention on the court.

In the Vertex 03, you’ll find a racket that offers the perfect blend of speed and control, and the sandpaper-like surface layer allows you to get a really good grip on the ball on sliced shots while providing a wicked spin. The Air React Channel will be a very popular addition thanks to the racket being lighter and at the same time stiffer. This means more power, higher ball speed, and better response. 

If you’re focused on an explosive and dynamic attacking game, you’ll find everything you need in this model, whose smallest detail is designed to contribute to fast-paced offense without sacrificing control or precision in the process.

Plus / Minus
Summary of our review
  • Very good power and speed
  • Hesacore grip included
  • Used by several world stars
  • Some may find the frame too rigid

Disadvantages

The Vertex 03 has a slightly narrower target audience compared to the Control and Comfort models, which are easier to handle. It’s not an easy racket to play with due to the stiff frame, hard materials, and high balance. However, it delivers exactly what it promises – maximum speed and power in attacks.

Our review of the Bullpadel Vertex 3

The Bullpadel Vertex 3 is a very good padel racket for those who want to play an offensive game with a lot of overhead strokes. You also get a very hard hitting smash thanks to the top-heavy balance sandpaper-like surface for extra spin.
