Racket of the performance range of the line Boost Graphite, from the Dunlop brand. Composed of 100% carbon and a mid-density EVA PRO TOUCH gum Core. It has an oversize hybrid shape (between round and tear) and a smooth surface with matt finish.
When you first pick it up, you get the feeling of a balanced racket. The swing is directed slightly 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 it a bit further and make it more manageable.
In play is a racket with a medium touch. The carbon structure with HOT MELT Carbon technology gives a lot of stability to the racket. It’s got a medium-hardness hit. Presents a medium sweet spot. I think the oversize hybrid model contributes to increasing the optimal impact point. In terms of power is not the ideal racket for an aggressive game. There’s an average output. In the net the trays come out flowing but you should be careful with the output of the racket. Control is good. At the back of the court the lobs come out controlled and with good depth in an easy way.
The weight tested was 366gr.
The surface is smooth with matt finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium-high loudness and with a medium timbre to tender for acute.
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 value for money
- Safety Cord Not adjustable
- Lack power
- Vibration in the arm
In conclusion, this is a racket for mid-level players or beginners. 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 and its balance. In the net is constant when applied a correct technique. If you are not careful you can send some balls to the glass in the tray and volley. In the smash it is possible to print some power by putting the body weight on the ball. With the right technique you can get by with some effort to draw by 3, by 4 or bring the ball back. I felt some vibration in my arm but tolerable. I think that the fully carbon structure and the AEROGEL system, applied to the bridge between handle and head gives it additional rigidity. The finishes are good, the visual is attractive with fluorescent yellow. It is a racket with Dunlop quality seal, which in my opinion serves players who are starting or mid-level on both sides. You may want to place the 3 overgrips on top of a good grip that absorbs the vibrations well. A fantastic choice in terms of quality/price. Suitable for those who are starting and want a quality racket.
