Lightest Padel Racket – Adidas RX20 Light Padel Racket

Calling all novices back to the padel court..we have another great option for you!  rackets generally weigh between 330g and 385 g. A lighter racket, such as the Adidas RX20 Light Padel Racket,  is easier to use and gives you more control of your strokes. If you suffer from tennis elbow, a more light-weight racket is a more ideal  option since it is easier on the joints. However, you may find lighter options have a premium due to the more advanced materials they have used to create these products.. Also, remember to  consider how long you may be playing for at a time and if you want to prioritise more power or agility over the weight of your equipment.
