High modulus graphite
High modulus graphite efficiently dampens vibrations in the racquet when hitting the ball. It confers a much more comfortable feel and dampens vibrations.
At just 275 g, this racquet is easy to swing.
For your information:
- Less than 260 g: lightweight racquets, for comfort and easy handling.
- 260 to 295 g: classic racquets (intermediate) for versatility.
- 300 to 315 g: racquets for players who already have good technique and need more powerful strokes and precision.
- 315 g: racquets for top-level competitors.
The TR500 is head heavy (34.5 cm balance point) to generate powerful strokes.
The stiffness rating of 70 improves the racquet's power considerably
Stiff frame: > 64 – 66 RA.
Soft frame: < 64 – 66 RA.
The stiffer the frame, the shorter the contact time: you lose some control but gain in power.
The size of the TR500's head (690 cm²) provides more power and forgiveness.
The larger the head size, the greater the ball strike surface area. The ball can be hit off-centre with good results, although the trade-off is a little less accuracy. Your racket is thus more forgiving
For further information:
- Midsize – small head size: < 625 cm²
- Mid plus – standard head size: 626 - 677 cm²
- Oversize – large head size: 678 - 742 cm²
- Super oversize – very large head size: Over 742 cm²
An inertia of 280 prevents the frame from deforming when struck at high speed, delivering power and precision.
What does the inertia rating mean? The higher the inertia, the harder the racquet is to manoeuvre, but the greater the power.
