Jérôme SCHAEFFER, Sporting Director of All In Padel Sports, but also an expert in padel French, looks back on his impressions of Sanyo's Alpha Pro, with a photo 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 bandejas), loving the touch of the ball, liking to give effects, while having a good percussion for the finishing shots (smashes).
Compared with the Delta Pro Bela, same weight but a different balance that makes it feel lighter, much less rigidity and necessarily less powerful.
