Racket of the TRIUMPH HYBRID line of the CARTRI brand. Composed by the XTREME system in its structure and face, an innovative and lightweight disposition for carbon fibers. It has a HCT core, a hybrid system that has two coats of EVA gum and an interior of polyethylene. It has an oversize hybrid shape and a rugged surface across the face with glossy finish.
When you take it for the first time you get the feeling of a different racket but rather balanced and lightweight. The swing is directed towards the handle. By placing the overgrips, you will be able to further optimize the balance towards 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.
Being a hybrid model both solutions are viable, add more weight to the head or handle whichever is intended.
In play is a racket with a medium touch. It features a large sweet spot, almost equal to a traditionally round format. In terms of power does not disappoint but also does not impress, is taste It has a high output due to its mixed core, as the “OEIRAS” adapts according to the power imprinted in the stroke.
In the net:
In the net, the depth is not a problem, you have to have some attention and control in the stroke so that its output does not translate into a ball to the glass. Its good handling allows you to react quicklly. Volleys and trays come out deep and easy, however it requires some proper control and termination of blow so that they do not come out too deep. In the smash will fulfill its function, it is not spectacular but with a good placement of weight on the ball and correct technique can draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back consistently. There are yet certainly better options in this field.
Back of the court:
Control from the back of the court is quite good, its high output allows you to get out of the tighter situations with relative ease. Its good handling will also help you to react quickly when necessary. Lobs and defensive strokes come out fluid and deep, but it takes attention not to go to the glass.
The weight tested was 355gr.
The surface is rough with glossy finish.
In sound terms is a racket that has an average sound and an equally medium timbre.
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 output (for those who appreciate)
- Sweet spot Wide
- Adjustable cord
- Some power is missing
In conclusion, this is a racket indicated for high-level players up to advanced, who want a handleable and comfortable racket that meets at all stages of the game and helps you in complicated situations. In the net it becomes easy to put depth in all the strokes and you will be able to get enough power if you want to be aggressive, however because of its high output it requires a correct and controlled technique to avoid glass. It has a medium-hardness hit. In the smash, with good technique and strength you will be able to draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back without any major problems.
The visual part is well achieved with the gold on the bright black. I felt little vibration in the arm, it is quite comfortable. It serves, in my opinion, high-level players up to advanced on both sides who prefer to have control over all phases of the game without any particular focus.
To highlight the innovative warranty confirmation system through QR Code that is printed on the racket itself. A different, dashing racket that won’t disappoint you. The online price is something high but it is a fairly advanced technological racket. Good games!
