Racket of the Graphene Gamma Pro line of the well known brand Head, which also excels for its excellent tennis products. Composed of carbon, graphene and a core of FOAM ULTRA SOFT. It has a round shape and a smooth surface with matt finish.
By picking up you get the feeling of a racket very very manageable. The balance is clearly directed towards the handle. By placing the overgrips you can still get a lower swing. You can put lead or tungsten ribbons on top if you want to add more power.
The feeling is of a racket with a medium-hard touch, for its core of ULTRA SOFT FOAM and also by the addition of graphene in the landmark which gives it an extra stiffness. He has a very controlled and precise stroke. Presents a generous sweet spot. In terms of power it lacks a lot. On the net it facilitates and forgives many technical errors that may exist, but the stroke can come out short if the correct movement is not performed. Control is exceptional. It has little output and is very manageable, one of its strongest points. Very good at the bottom of the field and in the transition defense-attack, the ball will rarely go to the glass in a minimally well executed hit. On the net it lacks power clearly.
The weight tested was 370gr.
The surface is smooth with a spectacular matt finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium sound and timbre.
The safety cord is adjustable and simple model what should be the norm for all rackets in my opinion.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a solid and well built racket, the addition of the graphene brings you greater rigidity and durability without increased weight.
- Excellent control
- Very manageable
- Good finishes
- Adjustable cord
- Lack of power
In conclusion, this is a racket for experienced players who prefer control to power or players who just started to practice padel that want a balanced racket and quite permissive. It has a medium-hard touch and low-output. In the defensive phase the accuracy you will achieve in the stroke is impressive, however it does not have much output which will require a little more strength to achieve the desired depth of blow. On the net is very precise also and permissive, however it lacks a lot of power and is not the ideal racket to draw by 3, by 4 or bring the ball back with ease. It does not feel practically vibration in the arm, consequence of the FOAM core, which is ideal for those suffering from elbow problems. The HEAD’s anti vibration system also helps at this particular point. The finishes are very good and the look is very attractive in my opinion. It is a high quality racket, which in my opinion serves right-wing players who excel in control. It’s a pretty manageable racket. Highly recommended for those who suffer from problems like Epicondylitis. Excellent choice of HEAD for whatever the level. [Yasr_multiset setid = 1]
