Bullpadel flow woman

Bullpadel Flow woman

  • Racket shape: drop shape/hybrid
  • Recommended player performance level: Advanced
  • Suitable for the type of player: All-round

This is no greater than the Spanish world number 1 Alejandra Salazar’s competition racket. A lightweight (345-360 grams) and easy-to-handle racket with a medium balance that is perfect for the player who wants to challenge at all times and play every point as if it were the last. Very elegant design with an attractive color scheme, and it provides a wonderful combo of power and control. 

Packed with the latest technology, it has for example a core of Adaptia Multi-EVA – multiple foam layers with different densities where the outer layer is harder to put good speed on fast balls and the inner one is softer to give better control accelerating slower balls. 

Furthermore, the hitting surface is made of Fybrix, a blend of harder carbon fiber and softer glass fiber where the outer layer is 3DGrain for the best spin and power. Vibradrive absorbs vibrations and makes it a very comfortable racket to play with, undoubtedly one of the highlights of the season.

Bullpadel Hack

Bullpadel Hack

  • Racket shape: Drop shape/Hybrid
  • Recommended Player Performance Level: Advanced
  • Suitable for: Offense

Here we present the Spanish WPT three-time winner Paquito Navarro’s racket. It is top-heavy and weighs 365-380 grams. Incorporated within this racket is a customization feature where you can change the weight and balance using the interchangeable bottom pegs and 1-3 metal plates to gain optimal results. The hack has been developed to provide maximum power for the aggressive style of play, but it also provides surprisingly good control.

As is to be expected from a top player, this racket has all the latest technology: the Adaptia core of Multi-EVA where the different foam layers have different densities and can therefore adapt to each stroke, the face layer of the hard carbon fiber material Tricarbon for a truly explosive game and of course the Vibradrive vibration damping system. 

The hack also comes with an ergonomic grip, Hesacore, which also helps to reduce vibration and therefore the risk of injuries such as tennis elbow. The frame is made of 100% carbon fiber CarbonTube, making it an extremely durable and resilient racket.

Bullpadel Hack Comfort

Bullpadel Hack Comfort

  • Racket shape: diamond
  • Recommended player Performance level: Advanced
  • Suitable for: Offense 

With the Hack Comfort, the focus has been on making an affordable, diamond-shaped racket for the player who wants to play with power but without giving up control. As you’d expect from a diamond-shaped racket, it has a high balance to assist with overhead shots and smashes, but thanks to the slightly softer Fybrix HybridFiber face layer, which is a blend of fiberglass and carbon fiber, it offers better control and ball security compared to most similar rackets. 

The core of the Adaptia adapts to generate the best possible speed on both harder and softer strokes, being a combination of materials with different densities. It also comes with a frame guard made of lightweight aluminum to protect your racket from bumps and scratches, and you can add the Hesacore ergonomic grip to reduce vibration and therefore reduce the risk of injury.

Bullpadel Hack Control

  • Rackets shape: Round
  • Recommended Player Performance Level: Advanced
  • Suitable for: Allround

Here, Paquito Navarro’s racket has been adapted for the skilled player who is looking for more control than power. It comes with a lovely sweetspot and a low balance, which each individual player can then adapt to their needs through interchangeable Grip Custom Weight bottom pegs and 1-3 Protector Custom Weight metal plates that weigh 3 grams each. 

The hitting surface is made of the new carbon fiber material Tricarbon and the core Adaptia is made of Multi-Eva foam in different densities. The outer layer has a higher density and provides more power for fast balls, while the inner layer, which has a lower density, generates speed for slow balls and gives you perfect control. 

Furthermore, it comes equipped with both the ergonomic Hesacore grip and the Vibradrive vibration dampening system that improves comfort, feel and reduces the risk of e.g. tennis elbow. A frame protection made of lightweight aluminum, a Metal shield, ensures that your racket is protected from bumps and scratches and thus becomes extra durable.

Bullpadel Hack Jr

Bullpadel Hack Jr

  • Racket shape: diamond
  • Recommended player Performance level: Junior Advanced
  • Suitable for: Allround

Once again, the official racket of WPT star Navarro has been adapted, but this time to suit all talented juniors who want to imitate their idol on the court. It weighs just 335-345 grams and is a little narrower than a standard racket, 33 mm, and is suitable for ages 7-12. 

It has the same stylish design as the original model, and the frame is again made of CarbonTube, 100% carbon fiber to make the racket as stable and durable as possible. 

The balance is medium to provide an excellent combination of both speed and control, thus providing the best conditions for juniors to develop their game and get to the next level as quickly as possible. The core is made of Evalastic and the hitting surface of fiberglass for the best feel when hitting the ball.

Bullpadel Shake

Bullpadel Shake

  • Racket shape: round
  • Recommended player performance level: Beginner – Intermediate
  • Suitable for: Allround

Bullpadel has an excellent option for those who are just starting to play padel. A round, very easy to play racket that is also lightweight (360-370 grams) and therefore easily keeps up with fast movements across the court. The balance is low, the sweetspot is large and the hitting surface of the glass fiber ensures that you get a fantastic feel in every hit, so you can build and develop your technique more easily. 

The core of the Evalastic is soft and helps you get the ball moving without having to take much of a hit yourself. It delivers both offensively and defensively, a great and affordable all-rounder racket made to further your game. An integrated frame guard ensures your racket lasts longer and reduces the risk of scratches and cracks.

Bullpadel Vertex 3

Bullpadel Vertex 3

  • Racket shape: diamond
  • Recommended player performance level: Advanced
  • Suitable for: Offense

For many years now, the Vertex has been the best-selling top racket on the Swedish market, and here Bullpadel presents the Argentinean world star Maxi Sánchez model, which is designed for talented players who aim for an aggressive and dynamic style of play. For this version, an entirely new aerodynamic arch in the frame, the Air React Channel, has been developed, which is complemented by the optimal placement of the holes to offer exactly what most players are looking for – more power in their hits and greater speed on the ball. 

In addition, it has a 12k carbon fiber face, which is harder and faster than the standard 3k version because the fibers have been woven together much more firmly. The Vertex 3 also incorporates the Topspin surface layer, which is similar to sandpaper and has a greater spin and impact on stop balls. The foam core is made of Multi-EVA, which combines different densities for an optimal result – more speed in fast balls while generating power in slower shots. 

One of the reasons Vertex is so popular is that every player can customize their racket to their abilities. Both weight and balance are easily adjusted using interchangeable bottom pegs and thin metal plates that can be added to the top of the racket.

Of course, it also includes the Hesacore grip and the Vibradrive vibration dampening system for optimum comfort and injury reduction.

Bullpadel Vertex 3 Comfort

Bullpadel Vertex 3 Comfort

  • Rackets shape: Diamond
  • Recommended player performance level: advanced
  • Suitable for: Offense

Here we have a more simple-playing and slightly softer version of its big brother, Vertex 3. The weight is the same, 365-380 grams, and it also features a carbon fiber Carbon Tube frame that has incorporated the new Air React Channel bow to ensure the best possible speed and precision in the strokes. Other similarities include the Adaptia core by Multi-Eva, which combines foam rubber of different densities for a flexible and dynamic stroke where speed is generated in all positions. 

The main difference is that the Vertex Comfort has a softer hitting surface of Fybrix which is a combination of hard carbon fiber and soft glass fiber, this allows a small amount of power to be traded off for better control. In addition, the sandpaper-like surface Topspin has been added for awesome effects.

Bullpadel Vertex 3 CTR

Bullpadel Vertex 3 Control

  • Racket shape: round
  • Recommended player performance level: Advanced
  • Suitable for: All-round

This round version of the popular Vertex series has become a bestseller. The shape and low balance make it suitable for a broader style of play, but again the benchmark is the ultimate balance of control and power. As with the other Vertex models, this one has been upgraded with an all-new, more aerodynamic bow that also optimizes hole placement for a lovely sweetspot, delivering more power and better response on every shot. 

The hitting surface is made of ultra-resistant 12k carbon fiber with integrated Top Spin to enhance spin on the ball. Bullpadel’s Adaptia core of Multi-EVA has become a clear favorite as it adapts to the strength of the shots and delivers proper power in all positions while giving you total control. It’s an easy-to-handle racket that delivers all over the court, from the front of the net to the back of the corners.

With a Vertex 3 Control, you can customize the weight (standard 365-380 grams) and balance to your own conditions with interchangeable bottom plugs and thin weight plates that can be easily added to the top of the racket. The ergonomic Hesacore grip is included, as well as the Vibradrive vibration dampening system.

Bullpadel Vertex 3 Woman

Bullpadel Vertex 3 Woman

  • Rackets shape: Diamond
  • Recommended player performance level: advanced
  • Suitable for: All-round

Here’s a great option for all talented girls. The main difference with Bullpadel’s other Proline rackets is that this is the lightest one by far, weighing only 345-360 grams. Despite the lightweight, you certainly don’t have to feel like you’re sacrificing certain playing characteristics – on the contrary, it just gets easier to handle and follows fast movements better.

On the Vertex 3 Woman, you’ll find a brand new Air React Channel, which consists of a mass of holes strategically placed in the heart of the racket to make each stroke as powerful and well-placed as possible. At the heart of the racket is Adaptia, by Multi-Eva – a new and revolutionary way of combining materials of different densities. The outer layer is harder and therefore provides more power and explosiveness in hard shots. 

The inner layers, on the other hand, are softer and therefore boost the looser strokes while giving you better control and comfort. The hitting surface is a blend of carbon fiber and fiberglass, Fibrix, with Topspin on top to give your sliced shots a really good impact. The design is complemented by Vibradrive, which absorbs vibrations very effectively, and the extremely lightweight Sticker frame protector.

Bullpadel Vertex Avant

Bullpadel Vertex Avant

  • Racket shape: diamond
  • Recommended player performance level: Advanced
  • Suitable for player type: All-round

The Vertex Avant weighs 365-380 grams and is designed for skilled players who want power in their strokes while maintaining total control. The frame is made of 100% carbon fiber Carbon Tube and the core of Multi-EVA, which is a blend of materials with different densities to adapt to each stroke. 

The hitting surface is made of Graphite, a blend of hard carbon fiber and soft fiberglass, and this combination makes the surface flexible on impact while providing great comfort and nice ball feel. The rough 3DGrain surface layer ensures the best grip and spin. Sticker frame protectors help prevent scratches, so your racket is as durable as possible.

Bullpadel Wing Avant

Bullpadel Wing Avant

  • Racquet shape: drop shape/hybrid
  • Recommended player performance level: Advanced
  • Suitable for: All-round

A perfect racket for all skilled players who always want to do their best on the court, this provides a perfect balance between control and power. The weight is 365-380 grams and the core is made of Multi-EVA which combines foam rubber of different densities giving a racket that will adapt to the power of each stroke to always put as much speed as possible on the ball. 

The hitting surface is made of Graphite, a blend of carbon fiber and glass fiber, which makes it flexible on ball impact while providing unbeatable control. It is topped with a rough surface layer, 3DGrain, which makes for a fantastic grip.

The 100% carbon fiber wing design provides a very strong and stable frame construction, helping you gain more control over balls that don’t land in the middle of the sweetspot. It distributes weight evenly throughout the racket, providing a well-centered center of gravity and an optimal mix of speed and precision. The racket comes with the Siliflex vibration dampening system, and the Hesacore ergonomic grip can be added if you wish.

About Bullpadel

Bullpadel is a Spanish company founded in 1995, intending to improve the range of rackets in the rapidly growing sport of padel. Their original idea was actually to produce rackets made of wood, but they later decided to focus on rubber, which at the time was becoming the most popular material in the industry. 

They managed to take the wishes of the top players and materialize them in rackets, thus laying the foundations for their increasingly widespread popularity. In 2005, they took the step of also starting to produce clothing and shoes, specifically designed for playing padel. 

Since then, it has become a leading top brand used by WPT stars such as Paquito Navarro, Maxi Sánchez, and Alejandra Salazar, among others. Innovative design and technology are their hallmarks, and they always go hand in hand with the constant evolution of the sport.
