Racket of the SHIELD line, of the CARTRI brand, in its version 2.0. Composed of carbon and kevlar in structure, carbon and fiberglass on the faces and a core of gum Blak EVA D30, a medium-low density gum. It has a tear shape. It has a doubly rugged surface because it has abrasive roughness all over the face and additional relief in the sweet spot area. The finish is matt.
When you take it for the first time, you get the feeling of a sturdy, visually striking racket. The swing is directed towards the head. By placing the overgrips, you will be able to optimize the balance in the direction of the handle. If you cannot put more than 1 overgrip the option is also for placing tungsten tapes under the Overgrip (s) to lower the paddle balance. On the contrary if you want to add more power, place the ribbons on the top of the racket below or above the protector. This is a pretty viable option for when you like a lot of all the other features of a racket, less of your swing.
In this type of racket both ways work since it is a hybrid model that works well for any type of game.
In-game is a racket with a medium touch to tend to the soft in my opinion. It features a pretty acceptable sweet spot for a tear format. In terms of power there is no reason to complain, even if it is not the most potent. It has a medium-short output.
In the net:
In the net besides allowing to print a good power, the output to tender for short allows you to control the direction of the ball very well and control the depth. You should correct the termination of the blow to achieve a good depth in the volley and tray. In the smash allows to easily draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back. The doubly rugged face will help a lot in the intended effects, especially if it reaches the sweet spot that has additional texture.
Back of the court:
Back of the court control is quite acceptable, the output is enough to give you some extra help on the difficult balls. It could be a little more manageable, but the high swing will help you later in the most offensive phase. The sweet spot is centered on tending to the head and in line with rackets of this format. Lobs and defensive strokes always come out well and when you apply the correct force and technique.
The weight tested was 362gr.
The surface is double-wrinkled with Matt finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium sound and with an equally medium timbre to tend slightly to low.
The safety cord is adjustable and very comfortable.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a solid and well built and robust racket that will not break very easily. Well-esteemed will last a long time in my opinion.
- Good commitment between power and control
- Face with double roughness
- Very attractive Visual
- Could be more manageable
In conclusion, this is a racket indicated for high-level players until advanced, who want a racket with a good commitment between power and control. In the net the power is more than enough and at the bottom of the field also complies. Although it is not the most manageable racket on the market, the output is enough to help you in the complicated balls and not lose control.
It has a stroke of medium-soft hardness and a medium-short output. Although it helps you a little background of the field you should have the right technique and intensity for the ball not to get short. In the smash, with technique you will be able to draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back with relative ease. The tray and volleys come out with good intensity and their double-rugged face lets you apply the slice very well so that you can reduce the bounce to a minimum.
The visual part is quite attractive. Fluorescent green with black makes a very good contrast. A racket that doesn’t go unnoticed. I didn’t feel much vibration in my arm but I don’t think it’s completely exempt from the rigidity of its carbon and Kevlar structure.
It serves, in my opinion, mostly consistent left players or aggressive right-wing players who want a racket with plenty of power without compromising too much on the bottom of the field.
