Tecnifibre Suprem 130 Reviews
I had a chance to hit with the Tecnifibre Suprem 130 the other day. I really enjoyed this racket. It’s light (130 grams) and, according to the specs, just a teeeeeeensy bit head light (34.5 cm), but it felt like an even balance.
I got a very nice feel on the ball with this racket. It felt very solid and stable, without being heavy.
I compared it to my Dunlop Pro GTS, which has a similar head shape and weight. The Tecnifibre was a touch heavier in the head, and just felt more “dense”. In other words the Dunlop felt like it had more flexibility in the shaft and was maybe more appropriate for quick, wristy shots, while the Tecnifibre Suprem 130 encouraged a smooth swing with solid contact.
All things considered I really like this racket.
