On looks, this racket looks common to me. The color scheme look unusual, with some dark purple and Silver color. This racket feels stiff and more on the heavy side.
Initial drives were good. I like the power generated by it. Probably it will be good if I use a BG65 string with a higher tension. This racket seems to be able to handle tension more than 30lbs even it didn’t state on the racket. Some slight vibration is felt when I do some base line drives , but it doesn’t really affect the whole performance of the racket.
This racket can produce a lot of power due to the head heavy frame. Smashes is relatively good but you may tired yourself because of the weight of the racket. This racket lacks in terms of shuttle feel even BG66 is relatively a good string for control and feel.You really have to time your drop shots. When comes to POWER, This racket has it. But if you don’t have a strong swing, you may not be able to benefit the smashing power of this racket. On the Defense , reaction time is slower due to its weight. Overall the racket is heavy I would say. Not really good for intense game. But in the practice level , it may suit some of us.
This racket is not suitable for those who don’t like to defend. Power is there.
I would rate this racket in terms of Feel, Control , Power and Defense. However it is based on my own test and review. It may vary depending on the player , tension and what string you use.
I don’t know the price of this racket. If its on the low side this racket should be good for the beginners.
Pros: Power and durability
Cons: Too stiff and Heavy. Paint Job not that nice. Defense is slow.
Suitability: Beginner/Intermediate. Singles/doubles racket.
