Babolat Defiance Carbon 2020 on the padel court

Defiance Carbon is easy to maneuver and offers great control and precision.

However, due to the round shape and low balance, it lacks power in volleys and smashes. Control-oriented players won’t suffer from this, but attacking-oriented players need to be able to create their own power.

Babolat Defiance Carbon 2020 overall impression

We like the characteristics of Defiance Carbon and the design is great. This is a padel racket you’ll notice on the padel court. The textured impact surface works great to add that extra spin.

If you are looking for a control-oriented racket, we highly recommend checking this model out.
