Top-of-the-range racket of the Drop Shot brand. It is the 2017 edition of the racket chosen by Argentine player Juan Martin Diaz, counting very successfully with the practitioners and lovers of this brand. Composed of carbon and a core of EVA SOFT gum. It has a diamond shape and a smooth surface with thermo-laminated polypropylene Finish (CURV 360 system).
When you pick up you get the feeling of a very well finished racket and quite manageable despite the format. The swing is directed towards the head by force of its diamond shape but it does not notice much. By placing three or more grips and with the help of tungsten or lead tape it is possible to put a lower swing.
The feeling is of a racket with a surprisingly soft touch, a solid hit and responds very well to the player. It features a short sweet spot but not excessively. Power is your best quality. In the net i was impressed by the power that can be achieved when a well executed hit. The control is quite reasonable for a racket with this mold. It has little output, which can hinder a little at a defensive level but with technique you can make it what you want.
The weight tested was 362gr. After placement of 4 grips and protector, it was a little more comfortable and with the balance slightly lower.
The surface is smooth, with a mate finish on the side and with a thermo-laminated plastic cover in the center.
In sound terms is reasonable.
The safety cord is simple but comfortable.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a pretty solid and well-built racket which leads to wanting that may have a wide lifespan, especially by adding the CURV 360 system that brings you an extra resistance.
