Head Delta XTR Review
In our opinion, it is a powerful racket that does not disappoint in terms of comfort, so we will enjoy a great ball output, as well as less vibrations when hitting.
It is also quite manageable, since its weight ranges between 365 – 375 grams. The padel racket does not incorporate a cover, but you can carry it both inside the padel racket bag and in the Head padel backpacks .
Review on volleys and spikes
The Delta XTR is a racket designed to attack , for the offensive player. By having a high balance and having a diamond mold, it provides a good punch near the net, helping us to execute powerful volleys and get the ball more easily x 3.
Our impression is that it has a great ball output , having to apply little power to get the ball out with speed.
Although it has technologies that expand the hitting surface, this model has a sweet spot located at the top and wide.
If the rival pressures us with aggressive shots, at the bottom of the track he responds in excellent form to return with long lobs, feeling the ball at all times.
Touch and vibration absorption
The combination of materials and the FOAM core give it a semi-soft touch , so it absorbs vibrations very well so you can play for hours without discomfort.
In addition, its Smart Bridge system integrated in the heart improves stability, preventing vibrations from passing to our arm.
In short, it is a fairly comfortable racket with which to play our demanding matches without discomfort.
Our opinion is that we are in front of a racket with excellent value for money that we recommend to attacking players with an advanced and intermediate level , since it is a Head racket that adapts quickly.
You can also enjoy an exclusive finish in blue tones and fluorescent yellow details that will capture the eyes of all your opponents.
