It is very likely that, if you are just starting to enter the world of padel, you have many questions about what type of racket is best for your game and to improve as quickly as possible. These doubts assail even those who have been practicing this sport for years and, therefore, we are going to help you solve them. In this article we will talk specifically about what type of racket is best for your game, whether a rough or smooth racket.

The debate between a rough padel racket or a smooth padel racket

The options are as many and as varied as there are types of padel racquets, so finding the perfect racquet for us can be quite a job of documentation. Regardless of what the answer is, one of the most important steps is to try it out.

Normally, the aspects we usually pay attention to when choosing one racket or another are its shape, size, weight or materials, for example. However, there is another feature that sometimes goes unnoticed: the finish of the faces, or what is the same, its texture.

Once we have this in mind, it is essential that we know the difference between a smooth and a rough padel racket, what are its advantages and disadvantages and, from there, assess which option is better for what we want to achieve as padel players.

padel blades with smooth texture

In the specific case of padel blades with smooth texture, these have a generally very shiny design. It is the style of padel that we know as standard. Although do not think that with this padel racket it is not possible to give good effects to the ball, it is not so, this depends on the technique and skill of the player.

When playing with this type of finish you will notice that your stroke is more solid and that it does not modify the direction of the ball, since it does not generate any type of grip.

padel blades with a rough texture

For their part, padel blades with rough texture are a trend in recent years. So much so that many well-known brands have chosen to include this type of finish on all their padel blades, or at least on most of them. What usually stands out about them is that they provide grip to the ball and, therefore, the effects have more intensity.

Another detail to keep in mind is that there are different types of roughness. Some have uniform relief traces on the entire surface and others show reliefs with specific patterns. In this sense, each brand has a unique rough texture for their padels, but all of them are intended to increase the effect of the blows.

What is the difference between a smooth padel racket and a rough one?

Despite the specific characteristics that, with respect to hitting the ball, have a kind and another shovel, the truth is that there are no major differences between them.

With both types you can get a flat hit or one with effect, but it is true that the blades that are designed with a rough texture offer you greater ease to exert on the ball that effect that will hinder the defense of your opponent.

Which padel racket should I choose?

Once you know the difference between a smooth and a rough padel racket and how they can affect your strokes, it is time to analyze which of the two types is the best for you.

We must be clear that one is not better than the other, it all depends on the player who handles it. If your game is based a lot on the effects and, for you, this is something fundamental, then you should try a rough racket and let it surprise you. Let yourself go and enjoy the sensations, so you will discover which is your best weapon.
