Siux brand rackt of the origen line. Composed exclusively of carbon and graphen and a core of EVA ULTRA SOFT. It has a round shape and a smooth surface with gloss finish.
The first impression is a very balanced racket and a very robust construction. The balance is located in the lower part of the racket towards the handle. By placing three or more grips it is possible to lower the balance further.
The feeling is of a very hard racket and with a very solid and constant hit. It features a pretty ample sweet spot. With good technique the placement of ball is one of the best attributes of this racket. The power is reasonable without being extraordinary. On the net, due to its hard touch allows a solid volley and well directed as well as the tray. It has very little output, so it is dependent on the experience and strength of the user especially when in defensive position.
The weight tested was that of 360gr which proved to be a good weight after placement of the grips and protector.
The surface is smooth, with gloss finish.
The sound is medium and something muffled.
The safety cord is not adjustable which makes it more difficult to reach the most comfortable position. I personally prefer the adjustable cord, but tastes are not discussed.
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.
- Excellent sweet spot
- High quality materials
- Exceptional control
- High price
- Very little output (can be a point in favor for some)
- Excessive hardness (can be a point in favor for some)
In conclusion, it seems to me a very robust racket with excellent materials. With a very dry hit and with very little output wich helps at the time to direct the blow to where it is intended. It does not help much in the defensive stage for less experienced players. It does not transmit large vibrations to the arm which does not exert too much strain on the tendons. The finishes are very good and the look is very attractive and bright. It is one that will be best taken advantage of by experienced players and in my opinion it is based on a more defensive game than excel in the ball control, preferably for a right-wing player. A big racket of the Siux without a shadow of a doubt.
