Playing style: All-round, tending towards power
This racket was designed for players with an offensive style: it features a diamond shape and high balance (head heavy). These structural features optimise your performance at the net against powerful shots in fast playing conditions.
However, Kuikma's innovative technologies (fibreglass surface with aluminium) will give you control, manoeuvrability and comfort.
This is the racket balance point, measured in millimetres from the bottom of the racket handle.
The larger the number (head-heavy balance), the more power and stability you'll get from the racket and the heavier it will feel (even if it's not a heavy racket). However, you'll have to give up some manoeuvrability. The smaller the number (grip biased or handle heavy), the easier the racket will be to handle, but the less power and stability you'll get.
Weight: 335 g.
Just like the balance point, the weight impacts a racket's swingweight and therefore its manoeuvrability, stability and ability to transfer energy to the ball (power). The heavier the racket, the more power you'll get, but the harder it will be to handle. Conversely, the lighter the racket, the easier it will be to handle, but the less powerful it will be.
External material: fibreglass with aluminium
A layer of fibreglass woven with aluminium fibre. This provides good levels of comfort and bounce, which increases the stiffness compared with common fibreglass and thus offers greater precision and power.
Internal material: Black EVA
More elastic foam for maximum power and comfort with every shot.
Rough Surface technology
The final layer on the racket head has a rough surface for increased spin. It can be created using pre-moulded plastic or with a bath in low-grammage silica sand.
Protects the top of the racket from scrapes and impacts. This protector is made from TPU and is very soft, making it easy to put on and take off if necessary.
