Racket of the SUPERNOVA WOMAN range of the prestigious Adidas brand in its version 1.8. It’s the average-high-end lady issue for the year 2018. Composed of carbon fiber and aluminized fiberglass. It has a core of gum EVA SOFT ENERGY, a low density gum. It has a round shape and a smooth surface with glossy finish.
By picking up you get the feeling of a well-finished racket, visually very well achieved and balanced. The balance sheet is centered, curiously slightly higher than in the SUPERNOVA CTRL 1.8. By placing tungsten or lead tapes in the upper part it is possible to place a swing a little higher for those who prefer. If you want to lower the swing a little more just put the tapes under the Overgrips.
General lines: The play is a racket with a medium-soft touch and quite consistent. He’s got a solid hit with a mean exit. Features a large sweet spot. In terms of power, it is not at all the ideal racket, but as it has the balance slightly higher than the SUPERNOVA version CTRL compensates for the lack of weight in the racket and at the end it presents sensibly the same potency. On the net: the hit comes out pretty solid. Volleys and trays come out controlled and where we want, but they are short if the beat is not done well. In the smash it is well noted that this is not a power racket such as the SUPERNOVA version CTRL. At the bottom of the COURT: The control is very good in the defensive phase, because the hit is constant and no surprises. It has an average output, slightly below SUPERNOVA CTRL but I think by the reduced weight of the WOMAN version itself. It is quite manageable despite the centered balance. Lobs something short If you don’t finish the hit. Weight: The weight tested was 354gr. Surface: The surface is smooth with glossy finish. Sound: In sound terms is a racket that has a medium-high loudness and a loud timbre. Safety cord: The safety cord is simple, which leaves something to be desired. Durability: In terms of durability, it seems to be a very solid and well built racket which leads to wanting that can have a long lifespan. Pros:
- Good sweet spot
- Good quality/price ratio
- Safety Cord Not adjustable
- Exit something Short
- Lack power
Conclusion: In conclusion, this is a racket quite easy, manageable and suitable for player (es) from beginner level to mid-high who want a light and undemanding racket. It has a stroke of medium-soft hardness and average output. In the defensive phase will help you to a certain extent, but in situations of tightening has to make use of some intensity for the ball to come out with the desired depth. It has an average output, which means it will benefit you in defensive situations but watch out for short balls or on the net. I didn’t feel practically vibration in my arm. The finishes are very good and the look quite attractive indeed. It is a quality racket, which in my opinion serves player (s) on both sides who want a solid racket, easy and that allows good technical evolution. Lightweight, manageable and easy-hitting. Good choice of Adidas for a medium-high level at a below average price.
