The shovels of pádelUnlike tennis rackets, they generally have lower durability. While a tennis racket can last you years and years having to change the string when it breaks, pedal paddles can last a few months or hopefully a little over a year, depending on how you use it, of course. In this article we are going to give you some tips on how to take care of your shovel pádel taking into account its short duration in order to continue to maintain its properties and to be able to extend its life.

Here we tell you which parts of the shovel you can protect to maximize its useful life:

The fist

The fist on the shovel pádel it is an area very influential in our game and that is why it is necessary to keep it. Keep in mind that it is the only part of the shovel that is in contact with our hand all the time. The constant friction with the hand and the sweating of the same will cause the wear of the grip / overgrip. If you do not take care of your fist it may harm you when playing as you will not be able to take your shovel well and therefore it will be very difficult to handle it.

The normal thing would be to use a grip and on this other overgrip, although each player is a world. Professionals can have up to 7 overgrips on your grip, depending on the size of your hand.

The frame

It is, without doubt, the part of the blade that suffers most. It is very common that at some point we have impacted the frame of the shovel with the floor or with the wall. These blows will affect the structure of the blade and will cause future cracks.

To solve possible impacts, it would be convenient to buy a protector to put it on your shovel, which you can easily buy at any store. The only problem is that you have to take into account that the weight of the blade will be increased by about 10 grams, so if your blade is already very heavy now it will be more.

In the following video you can see how a protector is placed on the blade:

The surface of the shovel

After face game we take and store the shovel in the pallet no matter how it is. For a good care of our shovel pádel we have to follow a series of precautions:

  • If the blade is left exposed to very high temperatures we will see how it can affect the rubber. That to leave the shovel in the trunk of the car days and days can shorten your life greatly.
  • In winter, our shovel tends to finish the matches wet due to humidity or rain. If we take and keep in that state will surely affect the material. A proper drying of our shovel can extend your life much longer. As I read on the Internet there are some users who use a cloth with little alcohol or glass cleaner to clean it and the result is very positive. We will have to try it!

And you, do you take any action to take care of your shovel pádel?
