ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Weight
At 300 g, this racket provides excellent power. For your information: - Less than 260g: lightweight rackets for comfort and easy handling. - 260 to 295g: classic rackets (intermediate) for versatility. - 300 to 315g: rackets for players who already have good technique, providing greater power and precision to play strokes. - 315g: rackets for top-level competitors.
Balance
The TR960's 31.5 cm balance point provides good manoeuvrability for your short game and volleys.
RA
A stiffness rating of 68 greatly improves the racket's power; there is very little distortion on impact. 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.
Inertia
An inertia of 290 prevents the frame from deforming when accelerating quickly, delivering power and precision. Further information: The higher the inertia, the harder the racket is to manoeuvre but the more power it delivers.

Soft Feel technology

    so pleased with this racquet

    Our head coach had trial versions of both the 960 and 990 and I used both over the course of a week. The 990 I found a bit too stiff for me but the 960 is perfect. I've had to change the strings as the ones that came with the racquet weren't quite up to scratch but since then I have been very pleased. More than enough power for me and a very comfortable feel.

    Very solid racket

    I am the head coach of the tennis club and am using this Artengo racket, i was pleasantly surprised. Its nice weight and balance means it competes with the rackets on the market that are three times its price. This racket is affordable, but not lacking. The decathlon strings were not suited to me, but after cutting them out and using my own string the racket continues to impress, highly recommend.

    No Very Satisfied

    The racket ring size looks smaller and its a heavy one racket, not enjoying the same. Can Change it with another model ?

    Top Tennisschläger, ohne wenn und aber!

    Habe jahrelang einen Babolat PureDrive gespielt. Dieser Schlager steht diesem in nichts nach. Mein absoluter lieblings Schläger.
    300g nicht kopflastig, präzise und Arm schonend

    Control

    Esta raqueta aporta un gran control. Permite pegar duro a la bola por lo que es ideal para el juego agresivo y de ataque. En la red ofrece una gran manejabilidad y un toque excelentes. Desde el fondo genera algo de potencia pero es exigente, por lo que has de tener una buena técnica para sacarle todo el partido, pero si buscas precisión es ideal. En el saque igual que en los golpes de fondo, destaco su precisión y el plus que ofrece en los saques planos y cortados, ya que hace correr la bola muy bien. Para el liftado prefiero la 990 ya que es más potente y me premite imprimir más efecto a la bola. Esta raqueta diría que es ideal para el jugador de pista rápida que saca bien y que no duda en subir a la red con frecuencia. Muy buena raqueta.
