Racket of the “S line”, of the GLOBO PADEL brand, a Portuguese brand that is now launching in the world of Padel. Composed entirely of carbon fibre in its structure and 3K carbon fiber on the face. It has an EVA PAK gum core, a low density gum. It has a round shape and a rough surface with matte finish.
By picking her up for the first time, you get the feeling of a well-mannerable racket. The swing is clearly directed towards the handle. 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 pretty viable option for when you like a lot of all the other features of a racket, less of your swing. In this specific case, you can add weight to the head if you think you need a little more power.
In game it is a racket with a soft touch. The sweet spot is ample, perhaps a point just below the control version. In terms of power, it lacks a little to be considered an aggressive racket. The maneumability is excellent. It has an average output, making it a racket fairly easy and fit at all levels and especially for those who are taking the first steps in this sport.
In the net:
In the net it is a simple and permissive racket due to its ample sweet spot and excellent handling. The tray is easy to perform and the depth is no longer a problem. In the smash can be tricky to draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back to less experienced players.
Back of the court:
Control from the back of the court becomes fairly easy due to sweet spot and excellent handling. The output is average and will help you at this stage of the game. Lobs and defensive blows are not complicated with this racket.
The tested weight was 370gr.
The surface is rough with matt finish.
In sound terms is a racket that has a medium-low sonority and with a timbre equally to tender for serious.
The safety cord is adjustable and quite comfortable.
In terms of durability, it appears to be a robust and well-estimated racket that will have a normal duration.
- Excellent maneumability
- Large Sweet Spot
- Adjustable Safety Cord
- Lack power
- Lacks a little stiffness for more advanced players
In conclusion, this is a fairly easy and fit racket for players on both sides and who are just beggining. Especially suitable for those who are learning as it allows a good technical evolution. It’s a really handy racket, no doubt. It has a soft hardness stroke. It is a racket that in the defensive phase will help you. In the net volleys and trays come out correctly and with good depth. In the smash you will feel some difficulty despite being able to draw by 3, 4 and bring the ball back, by putting the correct force in the hit that should have technically correct. The 3D roughness, embedded in the cover, helps in the desired effects.
The visual part is well done, the blue, black and white work pretty well.
I felt a slight vibration in my arm. Its low balance, however, helps a lot not to strain the tendons too much. It serves, in my opinion, players on both sides from low to mid-level.
The price is concordant with the quality of the racket. Good games!
