The luxury line racket, the highest range of the Nox brand. The weapon chosen by the irreverent top player FRANCO STUPACZUK. Composed of 12K carbon and a core of gum EVA HR3, a medium density gum. It has a round shape and a rough surface with Matt finish.
When you take it for the first time you get the feeling of a light racket and very manageable. The swing is clearly directed towards the handle. By placing the overgrips, you will be able to further optimize the balance towards the handle. If you want to put tungsten tapes, put it at the top of the racket to give you a little more power that it clearly needs.
In play is a racket with a medium touch tending to soft. It features a fairly comfortable medium density gum, the construction totally in carbon fibers, either in the frame or in the plane, gives you some extra stiffness that it needs. Features a large sweet spot. In terms of power, being the racket of the “potent” player FRANCO STUPACZUK, would expect much more, lacks a lot of power in the net. There’s an average output. In the net trays and volleys come out with good precision, but requires control and technique due to the output. The control is spectacular at the bottom of the court. Because of its great handling it makes your defensive task much easier. The lobs come out well directed and deep very easily.
The weight tested was 365gr.
The surface is smooth with matt finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has an average sound and with a medium-severe timbre.
The safety cord is simple what I do not understand for rackets of this price level.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a pretty solid and well built racket which leads to wanting that can have a long lifespan when well estimated.
- Exceptional control
- Very manageable
- Lack of power
- Non-adjustable cord
In conclusion, this is a racket for all level players, however due to the price corresponding to a top-of-the-range racket, it will not be the most suitable for those who are starting, as it will not take advantage of all its capabilities. It has a medium-soft stroke and an average output. In the defensive phase is where this racket shines, very manageable and with excellent control. In the net you manage to get some power with a lot of effort, expected a lot more power from the racket of FRANCO STUPACZUK, but perhaps because it already has power that on opted for an exceptional control racket. With good technique, an experienced and strong arm and a good deal of effort you can draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back. I didn’t feel any vibration in my arm. It serves mainly right-wing players who want a comfortable, manageable racket with an above-average control. If you’re looking for power this is not the racket for you. Recommended for those who have elbow problems. A good bet at a price not excessively high.
