Teardrop-shaped padel rackets combine the best features of round and diamond-shaped rackets. Thunder Ctrl is a good middle-of-the-road racket for players who want speed but also good controllability in their games. 100% carbon fibre makes the surface of the racket stiff, giving more speed and power for hard shots. The rough surface makes it easier to hit and provides grip and spin to the shot. This racket has a softer EVA core that gives the shots more controllability.
