A mid-level balance point that can provide an advantage in both modes of play. In other words, it can provide both control and power.

Racket shape

The racket shape drop shape allows for a larger sweetspot, giving more chances to create controlling ball hits.

Hard or soft?

An all-round racket that goes more in the softer direction, allowing for a soft hitting surface and a soft core. These characteristics combined with a larger sweetspot and racket shape provide more advantages for soft play. This racket may therefore be easier to handle for low or slow balls.

What level of player is Set Hawk suitable for?

Players with longer experience, from intermediate level upwards, who prefer defensive play but at the same time want to be able to use the racket for offensive play. An intermediate or more advanced level padel player will find it easier to gain speed and power in overhead shots.

Is the racket best suited for offensive or defensive play?

Based on the soft Eva core and the soft hitting surface of 3K carbon fiber, the racket offers good advantages for handling the soft and slow balls. On the other hand, the diamond shape and a medium balance can provide good help for both offensive and defensive play.

Benefits of Set Hawk 2022

The frame is more resilient as it is made of 100% carbon fibre, so it gives some stiffness to the racket as well as withstanding more impacts and hard ball hits near the frame. The 3K carbon fiber hitting surface and soft Eva core provide both control and balance in the game. 

With the medium-hard characteristics, a more advanced level padel player can get enough power and speed out of the balls to be handled above the head. The softer core also allows for better balance in the racket.


It requires a player at a more advanced level of play to gain proper strength in both offensive and defensive play.
