Let's go for a test of the Babolat DEFIANCE 2018. Is there a difference with the 2017 Defiance? What do the testers think? This is what we will see.

Released at the beginning of the year, the La Babolat defiance has not changed that much compared to the 2017 model. In reality, the program is similar. A racquet for players looking for precision. The racket is aimed at all beginners ... Nevertheless, with the characteristics offered by Babolat, we would have liked it to be more easily technically affordable.

A player who starts will have a little trouble mastering this pala. For the most technical, that's where it becomes very interesting. Because this racket allows to defend to perfection. No excuse.

But beware, if the sweet sport is wide, the model does not offer as good performance as an early model. Play centered and you will have the best of the racket.

This round racquet is in full carbon. Visually, nothing to do with the 2017. You might as well say that Babolat has won a nice bet on all of its rackets with its flashy side.
