Racket of the famous ML10 PRO CUP line of the Nox brand. A brand that has bet strong in 2018 with a number of new and other models already known. Composed of carbon, fiberglass and a core of EVA NOX HR3 high density core. It has a round shape and a smooth surface.
When you pick it up you get the feeling of a very manageable and well-finished racket. The swing is directed towards the handle. By placing the overgrips, if you like to put 3 or more, the balance will lower even more which can lead to you want to raise it to get more power, therefore you can put lead or tungsten ribbons at the top of the racket under the protector.
The feeling is of a racket with a medium touch tending slightly to hard. Its core of high density Eva gum is partly responsible for this. The carbon landmark and 3 fiberglass covers on the plane also give you extra stiffness. It has a very comfortable blow despite the tact tends to the hard. It features a very large sweet spot. In terms of power to this racket format has an excellent commitment, but one can not compare to rackets of more offensive formats. In the net is very precise and easily gets the desired depth. The control is exceptional at the back of the court. It has an average output tending to short and is quite manageable. At the bottom of the field the lobs are very balanced and helps you in the defensive stage especially in the lobs. In the net it lacks some power but does not embarrass anyone.
The weight tested was 363gr.
The surface is smooth with glossy finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium-low loudness and a medium timbre.
The safety cord is simple but quite comfortable, yet the adjustment is always better in my opinion.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a solid and well-built racket which leads to wanting that can have a long lifespan when well estimated. The painting seems to be quite sturdy.
- Excellent control
- Sweet spot Wide
- Good power/Control commitment
- Good quality/price ratio
- Very manageable
- Non-adjustable cord
- Ball output something scarce for round models
In conclusion, this is a racket for players already with some level that want a control racket but do not embarrass them in the net regarding power. It has a medium feeling stroke tending slightly to hard and with medium-short output. In the defensive stage is spectacular and very balanced regarding touch and output ratio. On the net is accurate and has a considerable power for a racket of this format. With the correct technique you can easily draw by 3 or 4 or bring the ball back. I didn’t feel practically vibration in my arm. The finishes are very good and the look is very attractive. It is a racket of unequivocal quality, which in my opinion serves right-wing players who like rackets with somewhat reduced output and some commitment to power. It is a very manageable racket, suited to players, in my opinion of medium level to professional who want a balanced racket but with primacy for control. An excellent choice even for those are not very fond of round shaped rackets.
