The latest addition to the GLOBO PADEL family, the LINE PR, comes to cement this brand with national label in full expansion. It is the weapon chosen by the National Champion and WPT player, Vasco Pascoal. Composed of a 100% carbon structure. Finished with a face in Carbon 12K and Textreme. It has a black eva gum core. It has a hybrid shape and has a smooth surface with mixed glossy finish and matte.
When you pick it up for the first time, you get the feeling of a sturdy racket, well finished with attention to detail. Sit slightly the weight to tend to the head.
By placing the overgrips, you will be able to slightly optimise the swing towards the handle. If you fail to place more than 1 overgrip the option also falls for putting the included weights to lower the paddle balance. On the contrary if you still want to add more power, put the weights included at the top of the racket at the spot indicated on the protector. This is a very viable option for when you like a lot of all the other features of a paddle, less the swing.
At stake is a racket with a medium touch, tending to hard. You feel the stiffness of the carbon in the blow, but without discomfort. The sweet spot is quite positive for a racket that ends up being also quite aggressive. This contributes its hybrid format. The handling is reasonable. You can feel the weight tending towards your head, which is normal on a powerful racket, but it still allows you to react quickly. In terms of power, it's fantastic. The extra stiffness and shape, allow you to shine at the height of smashar. There’s an average exit.
IN THE NET:
In the net trays and volleys come naturally aggressive and deep. Being more handleable than a diamond racket, it is possible to get a good compromise between control and power in the network. In the smash, you won't have any problems and the extra power of the racket will allow you to more easily draw for 3, for 4 or bring the ball back to your field.
BACK OF THE COURT:
Control in the defensive zone is quite reasonable. The average exit helps in the tightest shots and the sweet spot will also help to respond to everything. It’s not a round racket, but an experienced player will have no problem handling it. The lobs come out easily whenever you reach the sweet spot.
The tested weight was 365gr.
The surface is smooth with a mixed finish and matt.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium-high sound and with a medium timbre.
The safety cord is adjustable and very comfortable.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a very solid racket. Well cared for, it can last a long time with good performance.
- Sweet spot
- Adjustable Safety Cord
In conclusion, LINE PRO clearly demonstrates the commitment to the evolution of the GLOBO PADEL brand and is a nice addition to the range. We didn’t find anything significant to mark as negative. One can mention some loss of light handling, duly compensated with power. A hybrid mold that allows excellent power while maintaining good control.Serves players on both sides without problem.
The visual part is well achieved in our opinion, by contrasting the brightness with the matte effect in the center and maintaining a sober image.
The touch is stiff but not uncomfortable, eventually, after some time of play feels some weight on the arm given the weight to tend to the head. A very well achieved racket, which will surely please many. Congratulations to GLOBO PADEL for the work developed.
