Racket from the Action line from Dunlop brand’s Pro range racket. Made up of 100% carbon and a core of EVA PRO TOUCH BLACK. It has an oversize hybrid shape and a smooth surface with mate finish.
When you first pick it up, you get the feeling of a well-finished, solid racket. The balance is directed towards the head. By placing the overgrips, I recommend 3 minimum, you will be able to optimize the balance in the direction of the handle. You can additionally put lead or tungsten ribbons on the handle under the overgrips to lower a little bit further.
In game it is a racket with a fairly medium touch. The structure in carbon in the 3k braided system, conveys enough stability and additional rigidity to the racket. It has a comfortable stroke, where the touch sometimes tends to the soft. Presents a medium sweet spot. I think the oversize hybrid model contributes to increasing the optimal impact point. In terms of power it is a little behind the “gravity” model but well above the “motion” model. It has a medium-short exit. In the network the trays come out smoothly and controlled without great surprises. Control is reasonable, with a refined technique. At the back of the court the lobs come out controlled but you may want to finish the stroke well to get the desired depth. Unlike the gravity and Galaxy models, this one has a more traditional touch, by using carbon only.
The weight tested was 364gr.
The surface is smooth with mate finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has an average sound, high when you hit the sweet spot and with a high timbre.
The safety cord is simple. As I’ve always said, I always prefer the adjustable cord.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a solid and well-built racket which leads to wanting that can have a long lifespan when well estimated.
- Good power
- Good value for money
- Safety Cord Not adjustable
In conclusion, this is a racket for middle-high or even advanced players who want to print power in their game with a little more handling and a more traditional touch. It has a medium hardness stroke and also average output. In the defensive phase it helps by its oversize hybrid shape that slightly increases the sweet spot, but requires a technical correct hit to reach the desired depth. In the net is safe and stable in the tray, volley and has good power in the smash. With the right technique you can easily draw by 3, 4 or bring the ball back. I felt some vibration in my arm but not much. I think the fully interwoven carbon structure gives it additional rigidity, but VIBROPODS technology helps to minimize that effect. The finishes are good, the look interesting with the use of fluorescent red. It is a high quality racket without a doubt, which in my opinion serves left-wing players who like rackets with power but with good sweet spot and with the “traditional” touch of carbon. It can also serve right-handed players with offensive propensity. It can be used by people with elbow problems, but I advise the using lead or tungsten tape under the overgrips. A good choice in terms of quality/price.
