My review is here. It’s got a lot of flex, which isn’t normally my preferred type of racket, but somehow this racket worked well for me anyway. Also, it’s pretty.
Spotted this in 2018. It appears to be the same head shape as the Oliver Apex 500. I like the reddish color scheme.
Love the cosmetic!
Why Oliver racquets is slightly unpopular?
Travis Young says
I believe this racquet is mirrored after the Carboflex 130. A lot of flex and some vibration in the demo I have, however many players surprisingly gravitated towards it.
Beautifully finished in a burnt orange mat finish.

Hi All, I have been playing this racket for a while and also did with Carboflex all models. Not comparable with Carboflex 130. This one and 500 is flexible. No vibration at all, rest for arm and against fatigue. Much more comfortable than Apex 500 in spite this is heavier a bit. The string is same, SQX9, I just can recommend that as well.
