Racquet of the line “WOLF”, brand KELME. Carbon fiber, fiberglass and a rubber core BLACK EVA XTRA SOFT. It has a teardrop shape. It has a smooth surface with matt finish.
When you first pick it up you get the feel of a sturdy and visually interesting racket. The balance is centered tending towards the head. When you place the overgrips, you will be able to optimize the balance towards the handle. If you can not put more than 1 overgrip the option is also to place tungsten strips under the overgrip (s) to lower the racket swing. On the contrary, if you still want to add more power, place the tapes on top of the racket underneath or over the protector. This is a fairly viable option for when you really like all the other features of a racket, less its swing. The ideal is to experiment until you find the ideal balance for yourself and your style of play.

In conclusion, this is a racquet designed for mid-level players who want to move from a round racket to something with more power but maintaining a good commitment of control and handling. It has a medium-hard stroke and a medium output. It is a racket that does not impress at any time of the game but also does not disappoint at all. In the defensive phase will respond well, however a correct technique to achieve the sweet spot is required. In the net will make it possible to execute the strokes with the necessary power. You will be able to make accurate and deep volleys and trays. In smash, although it is not the most powerful racket we tested, you will be able draw by 3 or 4 and bring the ball back. The visual part is very well done. I did not feel much vibration in the arm, but it is not totally exempt. It serves, in my opinion, mid-level players on both sides who seek a little more power in their game but keeping a good compromise on everything else. Not very recommendable for anyone who has problems at the elbow. A good, versatile and very balanced KELME option. Good games!
