Racket of the prestigious Tecnifibre brand, from the line Wall Master 375, the weapon chosen by legendary player Willy Lahoz for this season. Composed of carbon and a middle-density EVA gum core. It has a tear format and a smooth surface with matt finish.
When you first pick it up you get the feeling of a balanced and manageable racket. The swing is quite centered despite its tear format, this format which in my opinion is not very pronounced and tends to round. By placing the overgrips, you will be able to optimize the balance in the direction of the handle. You can additionally put lead or tungsten ribbons on the handle, under the overgrips if you still want to lower it a little bit further, or alternatively put on the top of the racket to give you an extra power.
In play is a racket with a medium-soft touch. It presents a medium density gum but the whole construction in carbon fibers gives it enough stiffness and hardens the touch. It features a medium sweet spot, in line with what rackets of this format. In terms of power does not impress but also does not disappoint considering its format. There’s an average output. In the net trays and volleys come out well directed with a technically correct stroke. The control is quite good at the bottom of the court and in the defensive phase helps because of its great handling. The lobs leave with good depth due to its average output.
The weight tested was 375gr.
The surface is smooth with matt finish. In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium-low loudness and a medium timbre.
The safety cord is adjustable which is always a good option.
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.
- Adjustable cord
- Excellent handling
- Lack of power
- Handle format too wide on the base (for some players this is a very positive point)
In conclusion, this is a racket for players from a medium to advanced level. It has an average hardness stroke tending to soft and a medium output. In the defensive phase it helps for its great handling which in my opinion is its strongest point due to its SPEEDFRAME aerodynamic construction system. In the net you can get some power but I confess that I hoped you had a little more, but it is impossible to have everything in one padel racket. With good technique and with an experienced and strong arm you can draw by 3, 4 and bring the ball back. I felt a slight vibration in the arm, perhaps by its rigid structure 100% carbon. Because of its tear format that is mostly a hybrid format, it serves, in my opinion, players on both sides who want to compromise 50/50 between power and control. If you have elbow problems recommend 3 minimum overgrips for better vibration absorption. A consistent bet of a brand with a lot of name on the market at a very inviting price.
