No. 1 – All in the details
Acero Padel Racket – No. 1
Acero Padel Racket – No. 1
The racket is diamond-shaped and, with its tight sweetspot and stiff hit surface, offers maximum speed and power. This racket has been equipped with the exclusive composition of 18K in the hitting surface, compared to the industry standard of 3K. This means that the hitting surface consists of a carbon fiber with 18,000 carbon fiber threads per square centimeter. The more threads, the faster and more responsive the carbon fiber is in capturing and pushing back the ball.
On the hitting surface we also find our appreciated grooved steel pattern, with a depth of 0.6 mm, which gives a little more "bite" and thus spin on the ball. On the racket we find 64 holes with sharp edges that produces good spin in sliced shots.
Inside the racket, we find our incredibly popular black medium-stiff EVA core, which can be found in all of our rackets. The medium density of the core provides a nice supportive feeling in the soft strokes, and a powerful responsive feeling in the hard strokes, generating plenty of speed.
The frame is made of 100% carbon fiber, which makes it even more durable and contributes to a solid and stable hit feel.
The No. 1 has a reinforced neck between the racket's handle and hitting surface - designed to minimize vibrations and thus reduce the risk of injuries.
The racket comes with a weight of just 355-365 grams and a high balance of 270 millimeters. The light weight makes the racket feel easy to maneuver in the toughest duels - and is gentle on elbows and shoulders. The balance determines how the weight is distributed on the racket. A high balance makes it appear front-heavy, and a low balance makes the weight closer to the hand. When we have collected reviews from our customers about No. 1, they describe it as "top-heavy", which may be preferable for those who want more weight that falls down in offensive shots.
The No. 1 comes in a stylish and sleek cover that protects your racket from high temperature differences and dirt between matches.
We recommend No. 1 to advanced amateurs as well as competitive players who are looking for an offensive racket whose main characteristics are power and speed. Of course, it can also be an option for the recreational player who wants to challenge themselves and take their game to the next level. The No. 1 is a relatively easy-to-play diamond-shaped racket, compared to other diamond-shaped options on the market - given its light weight and medium stiffness that offers a nice feeling of support in the defensive soft strokes, but responds well in the offensive hard strokes. That said, the sweetspot is narrow and requires clean hits from you as a player to get the most out of the racket.
