“RANGER” line racket, from the brand KOMBAT. Composed exclusively of carbon and a core of EVA SOFT Gum, a low-density gum. It has a tear drop shape. It has a smooth surface with a glossy finish.
When you take it for the first time you get the feeling of a quality racket for the good finishes and balanced. The balance is centered. By placing the overgrips, you will be able to slightly optimise the swing towards 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 play is a racket with a medium touch. It features a medium and centered sweet spot. In terms of power it lacks a good bit despite the tear format. There’s an average exit tending to high.
In the net_
In the net it reveals to be a racket easy to handle. The ball takes the direction and depths intended. In the smash you notice the need for some extra power.
Back of the court:
Control from the back of the court is good and allows good accuracy. The output helps you in the most complicated balls to return. The lobs come out deep with relative ease.
The weight tested was 368gr.
The surface is smooth with glossy finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium sound and with an equally medium timbre.
The safety cord is simple and does not allow easy adjustment.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a solid racket, very well built and robust that will not break very easily. Well-esteemed will last a long time in my opinion.
- Good control
- Safety Cord Not adjustable
- Lack power
In conclusion, this is a racket for nominated for mid-level players until advanced who look for a racket at an affordable, easy, with good control keeping still some power. It has a medium hardness stroke and an average output tending to high. It is a manageable racket for its format and with good control. In the defensive phase will comply with no major problems.
In the net complies and allows you to react quickly and put the ball where you want. Volleys and trays come out deep and accurate. You have to have a little attention to the output that being medium-high will provide some balls to the glass when not performing the correct technique. In the smash you will be able to draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back, but requires additional effort on the part of the player.
The visual part is sober and well achieved. It’s not totally vibration-free. Its fully carbon structure gives it a rigidity that is felt. It serves, in my opinion, medium-level players who are advanced on both sides who want a multi-purpose racket and that they comply at every stage of the game.
A good racket at an unbeatable price.
