Racket of the ATTACK line, from GLOBO PADEL brand, a Portuguese brand that is now launching in the world of Padel. Consisting entirely of carbon fiber in its structure and 3K carbon fiber on the face. It has a core of gum EVA UK 30, a medium density gum. It has a diamond shape and a sandy surface with matte finish.
By picking it up for the first time, you get the feeling of a well-constructed racket, evident roughness and some weight on the head. The balance sheet is clearly directed towards the head. By placing the overgrips, you will be able to optimise 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 fairly viable option for when you like a lot of all the other features of a racket, less its swing:
In play is a racket with a medium-hard touch, its composition is similar to the control version, but I feel it harder. The sweet spot is placed at the top of the racket and is not the biggest.. In terms of power, it is very good, because the distribution gives primacy to the top. The handling is reasonable for the diamond shape. It has a short output tending to average, which means that it serves those players who like a racket less reactive and where is the player who completely controls the ball output depending on the force applied as in the previously tested control version.
In the net:
In the net is a racket that by its shape and balance directed to the head becomes a racket quite potent.. The tray are deep, however due to the format reduces the handling which requires habituation. In the smash you will be able to with relative ease by 3, 4 and bring the ball back.
Back of the court:
Control from the back of the court is reasonable. The lack of handling, reduced sweet spot makes it difficult especially for the most inexperienced. Lobs and defensive strokes, when reaching the sweet spot come out with good depth, but requires concentration and application of sufficient strength.
The tested weight was 370gr.
The surface is rough/sandy with matt finish
In sound terms is a racket that has an average sonority and with an equally medium timbre.
The safety cord is adjustable and quite comfortable as they should all be in our opinion.
In terms of durability, it appears to be a robust and well-estimated racket that will have a normal duration.
- Good power
- Adjustable Safety Cord
- Short output
- Complicated handling
In conclusion, this is a racket with clear offensive appetite, directed to left-handed players primarily. A racket that will shine on the net, yet the bottom of the field needs a correct technique to achieve the desired placement and depth. It is a technical racket and clearly directed to more evolved players.
It has a medium-hard touch and short output tending to medium. It is a racket that in the defensive phase may provide some difficulty, but will compensate in the net clearly. Volleys and trays come out with excellent depth and effect given to very rough face, perhaps the roughest ever tested. In the smash will not have grand difficulty to draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back, with the right technique clear.
The sandy-style roughness helps and much in the desired slices and effects. The visual part is very well achieved such as the control version already tested, the logo is very interesting and the colors well chosen.
I felt slight vibration in the arm due to the harder touch. Its high balance also begins to weigh in the tendons after some playing time, yet experienced players and accustomed to more aggressive rackets should not have any problems.
It serves, in my opinion, left-wing players, technically evolved and want a good solution for an aggressive net game. One more well-built racket on the part of GLOBO PADEL.
