Racket of the “GIRO” range of the brand Quilloqué?, in its 24k version. Composed of two 24k carbon covers, carbon structure and a BLACK EVA SOFT gum Core, a 30-density gum. It has an oversize tear format. It has a rough surface with matt finish.
When you take it for the first time, you get the feeling of a manageable, well-finished racket. The swing is surprisingly centered and tends to handle, something unusual in rackets of this format. 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 its swing.
In game is a racket with a medium-soft touch, dry but quite comfortable. It features a fairly broad sweet spot, fruit of its oversize shape that gives you an extra amplitude in comparison to a 100% tear-format racket. In terms of power is fantastic, I would say only a few points below a pure diamond version. There’s a short output.
In the net:
In the net trays and volleys come out accurate and potent without much effort. The rugged face helps and much in the intended effects.
Back of the court:
Control from the back of the court is very good. Good handling allows you to react quickly and get to the most complicated balls. The stroke come out accurate and precise in most cases. The only downside is the short output, which requires a correct and well finished technique for lobs and general strokes not to come out short.
The weight tested was the 360gr which is the single weight manufactured.
The surface is rough with matt finish.
In sound terms is a racket that has a medium-high loudness and with a medium timbre.
The safety cord is adjustable. In my opinion my favorite model, simple and effective.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a very solid racket, very well built and robust that will not break very easily. Well-esteemed will last a long time in my opinion.
- Excellent power
- Good control
- Dry and comfortable Touch
- Adjustable cord System
- Some output is missing (for those who like it)
In conclusion, this is a racket and a brand that surprised me quite by the positive. Already had very good indicators with the Quilloque test? Pro 2. In my opinion it is a racket that serves a wide range of players. It can easily serve a typical left-wing player or a more aggressive right-hand player. It is a high-end racket, and because of a high-end class price more suitable for middle-level players until advanced, however if you want to spend some money early on (which I do not recommend) can also serve players who are starting, taking into account that is quite an easy racket.
It has a medium-soft hit and a short output. It’s a racket with excellent commitment between power and control. The blow is dry but comfortable. In the defensive stage you just lack the exit, everything else is well served and will do very well. In the net you can get enough power without much effort. Volleys and trays come out accurate. You should have a correct technique to reach the desired depth. You can with relative ease, draw by 3, 4 and bring the ball back.
The visual part is in my opinion very good. It may not please everyone, but the minimalist and monochrome look pleases me personally.
I didn’t feel practically vibration in my arm. Its BLACK EVA SOFT gum and double carbon cover give you a comfort plus. A racket that will not disappoint anyone guaranteed.
Excellent design and execution of Quilloqué?. Good games!
