How Does the Nox AT10 Luxury GENIUS 12K 2024 perform?

Tapia

Augustin Tapia, the Mozart of Catamarca, recently referred to as the "Messi on the court" by Sanyo, is the nice guy that you want to be seen as on the court. And his imaginative and versatile style of play has resulted in the success of his partnership with Coello. As a result, his signature racket, the AT10 18K was one of the top-selling rackets of 2023. 
In 2024, however, Nox made a bunch of changes to the AT line. Were these a good idea? Many think not. They certainly confused us all. 

AT line

The AT Line is now composed of:
- the AT Attack - the soft diamond of the group
- the AT10 12K - the hardest model
- the AT10 18K Aluminized - the soft "teardrop"
While Tapia supposedly plays with 2024's AT10 18K, I don't think that he or any pro dealing with the ball speeds that the pros deal with would play with this racket. Marketing aside, players looking for something close to 2023's AT10 18K are right to look at this year's 12K.  

2024 updates

Nox introduced a few updates to these rackets in 2024. 
First, the Multi-level Density (MLD) EVA core (soft-hard-soft), like all multi-EVA cores, is designed to increase ball output on low-speed shots and power on high-speed shots. 
Second, these rackets come with the Custom Grip, which is a system of small rubber wrappers, for use under your over grip to reduce vibrations.
Third, the Air Channels, or small carve-outs in the racket bridge are designed to increase maneuverability (editor's note: but what about durability?).

Carbon fiber changes

The numbers of carbon fiber have long been used to market and confuse rackets to the detriment of consumer education of the rackets. Again, Nox made things confusing by using new carbon fiber thread count numbers used for their rackets. While a higher thread count conventionally refers to a more elastic carbon fiber, Nox rackets have worked oppositely, but this year's rackets break that convention, and they are now aligned with industry standards of lower thread counts, in this case, 12k, referring to more rigid carbon fibers. 

On the court

In the back of the court, this racket is light and easy to maneuver. Its medium-hard touch gives it precision, and several reviewers remarked on an increased sweet spot compared to last year's models. 
Reviewers enjoyed its dry touch in the aerial game as well. Combined with its good sweet spot, the hardness helped with bandejas and viboras. 

Who's this racket for?

This racket is for an intermediate player seeking a maneuverable racket with a hard touch. Someone who wants the feel of a racket with a sandblasted finish - someone who likes to add pressure with spin instead of force. It suits someone who isn't annoyed by its lightness or who wants a lot of help in their power game.

xTRES Padel

The 12K is quite rigid this year. I have more power but less control. Easy to generate a lot of speed on the ball.

Above all, we would like to highlight the maneuverability of this racket, which practically becomes an extension of our arm. On the court, it is even more maneuverable than the previous year's - even with an increased balance, it moves very well. In the aerial game, the ease with which the x3 shot can be executed is clear.

Good for a technically advanced player looking for a control racket that is easy to maneuver. This is a medium-hard racket with a medium balance. By the way, if you're looking for similar hardness to last year's 18K, then try this year's AT2 LTD. If you're looking for something similar to last year's AT10 12K, I recommend this year's AT10 18K.

This will probably be one of my top 3 rackets of the year. Best for intermediate or advanced players. Tested model has a medium balanced at 26.2cm and 353g without the overgrip and the wrist strap and with a protector. Slightly harder than medium touch, slightly harder than 2023's AT10 18K, slightly softer than Babolat Vipers.

Very similar to the AT10 12K, but slightly harder, so better performance at higher speeds and a smaller sweet spot.
