Our verdict and review for the Varlion Canon Difusor Carbon Black after testing the racket is that you can easily generate power and speed with the medium hard core and top heavy balance. Another strong advantage is the racket’s extended grip, which is particularly well suited to two-handed backhands.
Varlion’s new padel rackets are not only really aesthetically pleasing, they also have a really good quality. The price level is neither the lowest nor the highest compared to competitors.

|Brand||Varlion Avant Difusor Carbon Black 2022|

The frame is rigid in 100% carbon fibre, but to make sure the racket doesn’t feel too stiff to play with, the racket’s hitting surface has been fitted with a double layer of fibreglass.
A racket model with high balance, which in combination with the rigid frame and with a sweetspot that has been provided with holes of different sizes, makes it easier to smash to full hits with proper power.
The diamond shape and the high balance provide a good combination to give good support and help for an offensive game with good power. With this racket there can also be good control, thanks to the way the holes have been drilled at its sweetspot.
Hard or soft?

Information about the Varlion brand
Varlion’s first racket was developed in 1995 and this model was very simplified. But it wasn’t long after they had started to enter the Spanish market that they moved their factory to Spain. After that, their rackets started to be equipped with various peculiar features.
Some of their unique features are the models that have a frame with so-called lace. In other words, the width narrows down and at the end the frame has a width of only a few millimeters.
In addition, Varlion is unique with its holes. Some models have been given different sizes of their round holes, while others have the outer holes in a rectangular shape to let more air through when the racket is swung.

Advantages of Varlion Canon Difusor Carbon Black 2022
The advantages are many for those who like to play offensive games. The diamond shape, high balance, hard frame and medium hard core provide good power in the game. A longer handle makes it easier for the player to use a two-handed grip and the way the holes have been designed makes the model’s sweet spot bigger, as the holes at the end have been enlarged and moved further out towards the frame.
This racket model is best suited to an offensive game, so it may take a lot of practice to succeed with the racket in an offensive game. For example, when you need to pick up balls that are almost at ground level.
Our review of the Varlion Canon Difusor Carbon Black 2022
Mikael Rohana from Elitepadel has tested the Varlion Canon Difusor Carbon Black 2022 and gives the following review and rating:
“I found the Canon Difusor Carbon Black to be the most offensive racket in the series, and you notice that pretty quickly thanks to the top-heavy balance. The racket extracts really good speed in the game overhead and I also felt that you have good precision in the game and the grooved surface helps to generate good spin in the ball. A rack that I would recommend to the slightly more advanced player with an attacking style of play”.
