ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

High modulus graphite
High modulus graphite efficiently dampens vibrations in the racket when hitting the ball. It confers a much more comfortable feel and dampens vibrations.
Weight
At just 275 g, this racket is easy to swing. 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 and need more powerful strokes and precision. - 315g: rackets for top-level competitors.
Balance
The TR500 is head heavy (34.5 cm balance point) to generate powerful strokes.
RA
The stiffness rating of 70 improves the racket'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.
Head size
The size of the head of the TR500 (690 cm²) head 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: < 625cm² - Mid plus – standard head size: 626 - 677cm² - Oversize – large head size: 678 – 742cm² - Super oversize – very large head size: Over 742 cm²
Inertia
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 racket is to manoeuvre, but the greater the power.

    Excellent racquet for intermediate players.

    Excellent racquet for intermediate players. Great power and comfort. I am using it for last 8 months and playing daily. Good value for money if you are not brand savvy. I tried it with 54 LBS gutting and it gives good results.
