We often receive enquiries from female players asking about the differences in rackets with a more feminine style or “rackets for women”, and they ask for advice in order to choose the most suitable racket for their playing level.
The so-called “rackets for women” are different from the rest in terms of just two aspects: their appearance and the range of weights. Aside from appearance, women´s rackets have a reduced weight range in order to aid handling of the racket and to adapt to the strength of female players.
At NOX we have an entire range of padel rackets specifically devised and designed for female players. We offer rackets for all playing levels, and we have analysed them below:
NOX Silhouette V: The first racket
It is the ideal racket for getting started at this fantastic sport. With a round shape and slightly oversized (larger hitting surface) it has a large sweet spot that will make it easier to fully control your shots. Also, its price means that it is a great option for taking your first shots without spending a lot of money.
Playing level: Beginners
Moving up a level: NOX Equation Lady
For female players who have been playing for a while and who want to take another step forward we have the Equation Lady. Also with a round mould and fibre glass faces, its frame is comprised of 50% carbon fibre, which provides the racket with greater durability and hitting consistency. Also, this racket incorporates some of the technologies of more upmarket rackets such as anti-vibrators on the sides to improve hitting comfort, HR3 rubber and a roughness on the faces to add greater effect to shots. A racket with a spectacular price-quality ratio.
Playing level: Intermediate
A classic that never fails: NOX ML10 Women Cup 3.0
Selected as the Best Women´s Racket in 2017 by the users of Paddelea. The ML10 Women Cup 3.0 is the women´s version of the legendary ML10 Pro Cup, designed by Miguel Lamperti. We are talking about a racket with a 100% carbon frame and metallic fibre glass faces, which is more rigid than conventional fibre glass. The is the racket that Gemma Triay finished the 2017 season with as she rose to number 2 in the World Padel Tour pairs rankings.
Playing level: Intermediate and advanced.
For the most advanced players: AR10 Luxury L.4
The racket of Ariana Sánchez Fallada. This is a racket with 100% carbon frame and faces. The carbon used is 12K, a very light and high-resistance fibre applied to a diamond-shape mould, especially designed for female players who wish to add maximum power to their shots. With HR3 rubber and anti-vibrators on the sides this racket offers fantastic consistency.
Playing level: Advanced
For the little ones at home: Stinger Girls and Ultralight Fly
At NOX we don´t forget about the little girls at home who also like to head out on to the court. We have 2 models for them.
The Stinger 2.1 JR Girls is an adaptation of the classic Stinger 2.1 with adapted dimensions and a smaller handle to make it easier to hold at a young age.
As a new addition to this new collection at NOX we have launched 1 ultra-light model so that junior players have a regulation size racket, but with a really reduced weight (between 270 and 290 grams). This model is optimum for ensuring that young girls who play can get used to the size of rackets for adults (while maintaining the smaller handle) and thus ease the transition from a junior racket to a standard racket.
