Racket of the “W LINE”, from 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 smooth surface with matte or glossy 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. It is a well line racket with the S Line, with less weight, more directed to the female audience. 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 its swing. In this specific case, you can add weight to the head if you think you need a little more power.
In Game is a racket with a soft touch. The sweet spot is quite wide. In terms of power, it lacks, but it would be expected. Handling is exceptional. It has an average outpur tending to short, making it a racket fairly easy and fit at all levels and especially for those who prefer a paddle lighter than normal.
In the net:
In the net it is an easy and fairly simple racket due to its ample sweet spot and excellent handling. The tray becomes easy to perform, although the depth is slightly more dependent on the intensity applied than on the S Line. 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 is very good given the sweet spot and excellent maneumability. The output is a point below the S Line, much due to the lower weight of the racket and will not help you as much as that version. Lobs and defensive blows are easy but require strength to stay short.
The tested weight was 349gr.
The surface is smooth with matte finish or gloss.
In sound terms is a racket that has an average sound and with an equally average timbre.
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
- Wide Sweet spot
- Adjustable Safety Cord
- Lack power
- Lacks a little stiffness for more advanced players
In conclusion, this is a fairly easy racket and in line with the S Line, with a smaller weight. Suitable for those who are starting, whether male or female and allows a good technical evolution. It has a soft hardness punch.
It is a racket that in the defensive phase will help, given the good sweet spot and maneumability, it lacks just a little output to be even better. In the net volleys and trays come out with fluidity and with a reasonable 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 visual part is well achieved, like the rest of the line, and appeals to the female audience.
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, who want an easy racket and that allows for a technical evolution. The price is concordant with a mid-range racket. Good games!
