Jérôme SCHAEFFER, Sports Director of All In Padel Sports, but also expert of the French padel, looks back on his impressions of the Sanyo Alpha Pro, with a picture in action.
This racket (Graphene XT, Sanyo's racket) represents a super versatile model, finding a very good compromise between power, maneuverability and flexibility.
Why this versatility?
- Power given by a weight (375g), but with little weight in the head (with a balance 270mm), so a balance more heart racquet.
- Handling given by a pleasant grip, the change of catch is facilitated.
Racket for technical players (excellent for bandjas), loving the touch of ball, magnet give effects, while having a good percussion for finishing shots (smashs).
Compared with the Delta Pro Bela, same weight but a different balance that makes it feel lighter, much less rigidity and necessarily less powerful.
