How Does the Nox AT10 Luxury Genius 18K Alum 2024 perform?

The 2024 model of the Nox AT10 18K has met with mixed reception. 
The major design changes from the 2023 version are below:
- new aluminized surface, designed to reduce hardness variability due to temperature swings
- MultiEVA core: soft-hard-soft
- cut-outs in the bridge to increase maneuverability
The biggest result of these changes is the softening of the racket's touch. This model, the Nox AT10 18K is softer than 2023's AT10 18K and softer than 2024's AT10 12K...I know, it's quite confusing. 
In short, many 2023 AT10 18K players will opt for the harder 2024 12K. 
With its softer touch, we get a more comfortable, lower-performance racket. It suits intermediate players seeking maneuverability and help in the defensive game.
Its softness results in a playing style wherein the racket eats the ball on hard shots, reducing the speed. Meanwhile, at slower speeds, the high ball output of the soft touch carries the ball for you.
It still has great spin and maneuverability.
The year's model tends to run light, which is great for maneuverability, but not for power. Make sure to weigh your racket when you receive it. 
Several reviewers commented on the fact that it is highly unlikely that Augustin Tapia actually plays with such a soft racket.

I have used this racket for the past 2 years. It has more weight in the head than last year's. I love the volleys with it.

This is my racket. I've had an arm injury, and this is a comfortable, balanced control racket. When I want power, it helps me. It's a complete racket.

This is a great racket for a player seeking agility, spin, and comfort with the ball. In the defense, the AT10 makes me feel comfortable with rapid changes in direction.

In the defensive game, the medium balance, decent sweet spot, and maneuverability. In the attack, its ball absorption can cost you in smashes. I felt comfortable in the aerial game - it's a general help here. Smashes are not this racket's main characteristic.

Padel Review

"Nothing WOW, but improved on the past." We really didn't like the 2022 and 2023 models of this racket, but we like this one more. This model weighs 366g with a 26.2cm balance. Versatile racket for intermediate and advanced players. It has great drop shots. I like the handle more than previous year's.

I have to be honest, I don't like this racket, but many people do. The 2024 version seems to attempt to merge 2023's AT10 and AT2 with the end result of more of the drawbacks of each and fewer of the merits. I can not imagine that Augustin Tapia plays with a racket anything like this. Nox has tried to make an easy racket, which has resulted in a racket with a narrow range of possibilities and speed. Medium-soft hardness, 353g, 25.6cm balance.

High maneuverability and control at both high and low speeds. I'm missing some weight in the head for the power game - hard flat balls are often absorbed and not shot with as much power as I'd like.

A really complete racket from the back of the court, slightly softer than 2023's AT10 18K, larger sweet spot and more ball output.

Padel Review

Versatile intermediate, advanced racket that has been improved in the 2024 version: lengthened handle, aluminized carbon is slightly harder than last year's and should keep its touch in different temperatures. Much more powerful than last year's. Multilayered EVA, soft-hard-soft, medium touch. Tested mode is 366g, 26.2cm balance.
