Effectively……Reviewing this racket now could be considerably pointless because it’s discontinued. Nonetheless, this racket is significantly tremendous good and might have the ability to cope with massive manufacturers on the market and it actually baffled me that not lots of people are utilizing this racket whereas it is in inventory. After I noticed the first hand worth then it made sense, the P8 racket is mainly priced the identical as yonex and lining high rackets. Whereas all of the parts and 46T carbon is amongst tremendous good, not lots of people can pay for it since Adidas isn’t recognized for badminton.
**I simply began enjoying badminton for 1 and half yr so I am a bit late for Adidas rackets.
body weight: 84g±2
shaft stiffness: Stiff
deal with dimension: G5
String: VBS 63 at 28 lbs (as a result of the climate is colder in Thailand, the shuttle is tremendous duper sluggish so I want a thinner string to assist me with some repulsion)
The burden is “excellent” in my hand, not too heavy and never too mild. Felt a bit on a slight heavy facet of 4U however not a lot. Simply holding the stability level felt 298-300 which is ideal for all-rounder and energy participant. Paint job is gorgeous (I bought the black-gold model), despite the fact that I bought it second hand. The racket nonetheless appears tremendous cool. orange grommets at 10 and 13 o’clock appears sick. The cap bought distinctive design as nicely, there’s a rubber ring at elements the place the shaft goes by way of the cap in all probability to scale back vibration. Bending the shaft felt stiff, Would say the stiffness is just like TK-Fs so too stiff. Superb begin
Very first rate drive functionality, the shaft does assist with repulsion and matched with skinny string gave off a very simple energy era on quick swings. This racket struggles in quick tempo drives due to the top heavy side of the racket however you aren’t anticipating head heavy racket to excel at entrance court docket drives or blocks anyway so ye, not dangerous for a head heavy racket when you ask me. Mid court docket drives are simple, any shot that you just bought a little bit of time to wind up, it is pretty much as good as something available on the market. The repulsion nonetheless not so good as free-core racket however it’s shut.
the racket face is tremendous strong, with little to no head vibration on contact and good shuttle suggestions. Nothing to complain. Superb
Clear and overhead is simple, the shuttle goes to the place you needed it to go. I’ve a simple time hitting with this racket and do not have to fret about dropping management of my energy since it is simple to regulate. Backhand is simple as nicely for me. However my good friend who makes use of lighter racket are having robust time with this racket. Good management over shuttle on photographs
Very good smash, Most likely one of many largest smashing racket I’ve tried thus far. TK-F and Ryuga 2 gave massive smash too however that “highly effective” feeling isn’t there. By no means say this to plenty of rackets however this racket affords 1 shot kill smashing energy. The swing is clean and satisfying smashing feeling *chef kiss*. Stick smash is nice and I can get good shuttle velocity out of it. However I do wrestle with half smash. My half smash trajectory are larger than anticipated, in all probability due to stiff shaft, however this isn’t a deal breaker so I’ll nonetheless give this racket high 3 smashing racket I’ve tried. I’ve used ZF2 and Ryuga 1 earlier than, however I can not get the facility smash persistently with these racket because it requires an excessive amount of energy.
Tremendous strong racket, too dangerous 1st hand is almost inconceivable to search out now and 2nd hand is tremendous laborious to search out.
If you may get your arms on it please do. You will not remorse it.
