Great New Frame from Decathlon

Frame plays externally well, excellent feel and the lower RA helps with touch and response. The 16x19 open pattern provides lots of spin but you are able to come thru the ball very well. The lower Singweight allows you to customize the specs to your liking easily. String it up with both Ali power 17g and then later with the Artengo brand rough poly. Both times the frame preformed extreme well. Plays very much like the older Head Prestige or the current Head Speed sticks. But at a price $100 less is an absolute deal. Well worth the price and a definite winner for advanced or stronger up and coming players.

Great racquet for a great price

The racquet I was using was the Wilson Clash 100 (with added weight) but I decided to try this racquet based on some positive reviews & because it’s such a good price. Strung it with Solinco Confidential 1.25mm (all I had left at that point, lol) and it felt really easy to play with from the get go. I added some weight at 3, 9 & 12 o’clock but it’s an excellent all-round racquet, good for modification and it compares well to other racquets that are nearly twice the price. My understanding is that spec-wise, it’s similar to the Wilson Ultra.

Amazing Product!

Great control!

Good racket in stock form

A really good control oriented racket. I strung it with a multi filament for better feel on my shots. Easy access to spin. Stable even on stock form. A good platform for customization (adding weight and stuff). Sweet spot is small. Good for intermediate & advance players. Ordering from the app doesn’t work at the moment so you will have to order from their website but I saw a couple of TR960 tour 18x20 in Causeway Bay shop.

Finition parfaite

Petit retour après cordage. De la TR960 Tour control La qualité est présente, cordage facile, seul bémol pour le cordage en 4 noeuds, les oeillets de noeuds montants pouvaient être plus proche du dernier montant. Tres beaux Paint job mais avis personnel. En mains la raquette me fait penser a un mix de Blade et de prestige . On sent la souplesse du cadre et donc le côté control soft. L'association raquette tension cordage sera à mon avis primordial soit cela sera exceptionnel soit rien ne sortira de la raquette. A qui cette raquette est destinée, ? aux joueurs avec une bonne technique et un bel engagement sur la balle sans quoi une perte de puissance se fera vite sentir.

Excellent matériel, rien à…

Excellent matériel, rien à envier au marque premium

Une très bonne raquette…

Une très bonne raquette pour les très bons joueurs capables de l'exploiter. Pour moi, niveau 30, elle était trop typée contrôle. La TR 930 Spin Pro me correspond mieux.

j'ai tapé mes premières…

j'ai tapé mes premières balles hier et d'entrée j'ai senti le contrôle de ce cadre. Etant pointilleux sur le matériel j'ai pesé et vérifié l'équilibre des 2 cadres et bonne surprise pour le poids, elles sont au gramme près(305 et 306 g) pour l'équilibre par contre 5 millimètres d'écart.... alors je suis allé un rouleau de plomb (nouvelle référence chez décathlon) et maintenant j'ai 2 raquettes très proches. Juste avant je jouais avec la TR 990 power + qui est un bon cadre également mais un peu trop rigide pour moi finalement. Donc pour conclure ces 2 premières heures de jeu je peux dire que je suis satisfait de mon choix car je vais pouvoir reprendre plaisir à jouer sans retenue. je ne sais pas si ça peut aider mais juste à titre d'information je suis classé 15/3 (15/1 au mieux) joueur régulier du fond de court avec frappes liftées.

Achat ?

Bonjour, Ayant essayé cette raquette en plan de cordage 18 par 20, j'aimerais acheter celle avec ce plan de cordage 16 par 19, malheureusement rupture de stock. Question à Décathlon quand une nouvelle réapprovisionnement ? Merci

C'est la deuxième que…

C'est la deuxième que j'achète...

Raquette de qualité

Raquette testée pendant 1 semaine puis achetée. Je l’utilise depuis 3 mois maintenant (en parallèle d’une wilson pro staff 97 ls 18x16) cordée en head rip control tension 25kg - niveau 30/1. Lors du test J’étais un peu septique d’une raquette d’une marque moins connue dans le tennis, avec maintenant un peu de recul je peux me permettre de dire que cette raquette est vraiment de qualité au niveau des sensations de jeu (même si le touché est un peu moins feutré que sur la wilson, dur de faire moins feutré que sur une pro staff en même temps). Raquette nécessitant de l’engagement physique car typée contrôle mais le touché est superbe et le contrôle au rendez-vous. Il faudrait juste un peu plus de rigidité (petite préférence personnelle). A ce tarif il n’y a rien d’équivalent sur le marché, il faut juste sauter le pas pour acheter une raquette artengo, mais sans aucun doute possible équivalent à la pro staff 97 ls ou raquette type contrôle des marques de tennis classiques. Design sobre et élégant vraiment sympa. Seul point négatif le peu de stock disponible, je souhaite en acheter une deuxième pour les tournois afin d’avoir une raquette de rechange en cas de casse du cordage. Bravo aux équipes Artengo pour cette raquette c’est vraiment une belle surprise.

Weight (unstrung racket)

10.8 oz Weight: Measured in ounces. Just like balance point and length, the weight impacts a racket's swing-weight and therefore its maneuverability, 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. The lighter the racket, the easier it will be to handle, but the trade-off is less power.

Balance (unstrung racket)

12.4" Balance: This is the racket balance point, measured in inches from the bottom of the shaft. The higher the number (head heavy), the more powerful and stable upon impact the racket will be. However, it will also be harder to maneuver. The smaller the number (grip biased or handle heavy), the easier the racket will be to handle, but you'll have less power and stability.

Head size

98 in² Head size: This is the surface area of the racket head size measured in square inches. It has an impact on the racket's forgiveness and power. The larger the head size, the more powerful and forgiving it is, but the downside is less control. The smaller the head size, the more control you'll get, but you'll have to sacrifice power and forgiveness.

Ra

65 Ra Ra: This refers to the racket's stiffness, i.e. how much it bends under the impact of the ball. The stiffer the racket (the higher the Ra), the less it bends. The energy lost on impact is minimized and returned to the ball via the strings. Generally, a stiffer racket offers greater power.

Swing weight (unstrung racket)

SW = 285 Swing weight: This indicates how easy a racket is to handle and its ability to transfer energy to the ball (power). The higher the swing weight, the more powerful the racket, but also the harder it will be to handle. Conversely, the lower the swing weight, the easier the racket will be to handle, but the trade-off is less power. The swing weight is derived from a combination of the racket weight, balance, and length.

Stringing:

16 x 19 String pattern: This is the number of mains (vertical strings) x the number of crosses (horizontal strings). The more strings the pattern has, the more "closed" it is; the fewer it has, the more "open" it is. A more closed string pattern offers a greater feeling of control, but less power and spin. A more open string pattern provides more power and spin, but less control.

Length

27" Length: This is the length of the racket from the bottom of the grip to the top of the head. It is measured in inches. The longer the racket, the more power you'll get, but the flip side is that it will be harder to handle. The shorter the racket, the easier it will be to maneuver, but you'll have to give up power.

Mpo technology

Mass Polarization Optimization (MPO): Mass is distributed inside the racket for an optimal balance between handling and stability on impact. This technology also reduces fabrication tolerance on the weight and balance by 40%. This helps create consistent rackets that meet final specs and usage conditions.

Spin concept technology

The Spin Concept technology on the racket grommets improves string movement at the time of ball impact, increasing spin.

Hmc

High modulus carbon makes the racket stiffer.

Origin

Imported

Product testing
