Racket of the range “HALO” of the brand Quilloqué?, a new format, more aggressive, which was missing in the portfolio of the brand. Composed of 4K carbon covers, carbon and kevlar structure and a core composed of Dual gum, with a mixture of EVA and FOAM. It has a diamond shape. It has a rough surface with Matt finish.
When you take the racket for the first time, you get the feel of a powerful and balanced racket, with quality finishes. The swing is tending to the head and it can be noted.
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 very viable option for when you like a lot of all the other features of a paddle, less the swing.
In play is a racket with a soft touch, the outer layer of FOAM allows an unusual comfort for aggressive model rackets. The mixture of kevlar and carbon in the structure, brings you the necessary stiffness and power while maintaining a balanced weight. It features a sweet spot climbed, but quite interesting for a diamond racket. In terms of power, it has a lot. It has a mid-short exit.
IN THE NET:
In the net trays and volleys come out very aggressive and deep. In the smash, you will feel the difference of the “hammer effect” of the diamond format and even if it is not the most manageable racket, the extra power helps draw for 3, for 4 and bring the ball back.
BACK OF THE COURT:
Control from the back of the court is reasonable for a racket of this format. The output to tend to medium helps in the more complicated balls and the above average sweet spot for this type of format helps compensate for the lack of handling of this aggressive model. Lobs come out with good depth, sometimes too much, when you hit the sweet spot.
The tested weight was 365gr.
The surface is rough with matt finish.
In sound terms is a racket that has an average sound and 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, very well built and robust racket that will not break very easily. Well estimated will last a long time in my opinion.
- Excellent power
- Comfortable Touch
- Large sweet spot for model
- Adjustable cord System
- Reduced handling
In conclusion, this is a very interesting racket on the part of Quilloqué?, because it manages to be a clearly power racket, and still be quite comfortable and balanced. In my opinion it is a racket that serves players mainly left, however there are players, aggressive, right-wing who also opt for a diamond model. It is a quality and high-end racket, a technical racket and as such suitable for high level players in our opinion.
It has a soft and comfortable touch in its generality, but given the DUAL gum, when it prints more power on the ball, the touch feels much harder. It’s a racket with a fantastic power, maintaining some defensive balance.
In the net, the extra power and aggressive format will help you close the points more easily. Volleys and trays come out with enough “poison” and aggressiveness. The rugged face helps in the intended effects. You can do without great difficulty, draw for 3, 4 and bring the ball back with a correct technique.
The visual part is interesting and demonstrates care in design.
I didn’t feel practically any vibration on my arm, which is excellent for such a racket. This is possible by the outer layer of FOAM. The swing to tend to the head, however, makes itself felt after some playing time, which is normal for a diamond format. Players with good physical preparation will not feel much trouble.
A new model, very well achieved, to complete an already fantastic Quilloqué range?.
