Many people use the anti-vibration in the padel, a system that promises to help have a more docile and precise racket during shots.

There is a long debate among players about whether or not it is effective even for therapeutic purposes, with opinions of all kinds and perspectives.

In this article we will see together why it is useful to use anti-vibration on padel rackets and we will also dispel some myths, let's start immediately.

Why Use Anti-vibration in Padel

If you are looking for a complete set of padel equipment, this article on the best clothing for all levels is for you.

First let's go see the reasons why it would be advisable to always have a good vibration dampener placed on your racket.

Vibration reduction

Obviously this answer was widely expected but that doesn't mean you don't deserve to be at the top of this list.

The vibrations during a game are really a formidable opponent, so much so that they can lead us to miss shots, have less precise plays and greater fatigue in the long run.

Thanks to this system it is therefore possible to reduce them to the maximum, obtaining a feeling of greater control as well as a better racket feel in the hand.



Having something that vibrates in your hand is not only tiring, but also terribly uncomfortable long enough to become a real torture.

With a very minimal expense, you can guarantee a better sensation on the field, finishing matches without excessive pain and still having the energy for the last shots.

Having a stable racket that responds precisely to input is truly a pleasure for the whole body from which it is difficult to go back.


More power

An aspect that could take a back seat at first but which shows itself immediately on the field, is the fact that more weight in the racket head also means more power.

Obviously we are not talking about an abysmal difference, also because beginners would have a hard time taming a wild shovel that throws cannon fire at the slightest blow.

However, if you are a player who loves an aggressive type of game, then opting for vibration dampers positioned on the surface of the padel racket could give that extra boost to your game.


Prevention of epicondylitis

Epicondylitis is also known as "tennis elbow" is a very annoying inflammation that can impair the ability to play racket sports.

There are some special shovels that help prevent this problem but, in case you want to be more relaxed, it is better to add some other accessory that helps to achieve this.

One of these is certainly the anti-vibration system, which helps the arm suffer less during intense padel games.


What is the anti-vibration not for

Once clarified what this system is for, it is also right and necessary to say what not to expect from this accessory.

It's not enough by itself

Many people mistakenly believe that this product is enough to prevent tennis elbow by itself, but it is not.

The fact that it prevents vibrations and generates greater comfort does not mean that one will be able to feel completely safe from this inflammation.

The best way is to combine the vibration damper with other tools and accessories that help in this regard, such as the aforementioned rackets or a brace.

If you are subject to risk, it is better to prevent by paying particular care and attention to detail, then avoiding regrets and having to hang up the racket on the nail.

They don't turn into star players

It cannot be denied that a stable racket that returns pleasant sensations in the hand is a panacea for the game as well as for the body, but this does not mean that one will start playing like champions.

Expect some small improvement is more than fair but, if you use this system hoping for effortless success, it is very likely that you will be disappointed.

How to Mount the Padel Anti-vibration

There are no real rules or limits for vibration dampers in the padel, so you can feel free to place them wherever you like and in the number you need.

To place them, all you have to do is remove them from their packaging and insert them into the holes of your racket, making sure that they remain flush with the surface.

Having one of these items go overboard could result in a bad answer and loss of important points, so be careful.

Having said that, however, there are some precautions to consider if you want to put them in the most effective way possible depending on your needs.

If you want to improve the handling of the racket as well as reduce vibrations, then they should be positioned as close to the handle as possible.

Vice versa if you also want to have an increase in power, place some of them also in the direction of the tip that could be a really good idea.
