Serious player will appreciate the three unique and exciting models in the 800 series, including the 3rd generation of the extremely popular Rapier, the Rapier Be. This racquet carries the autograph of Dominic Soong, former world number 2, and one of Canada?s top coaches for the last 25 years. Also in the 800 series you will find Black Knight?s TurboFlex Be, with a unique dual flex shaft (patent pending).
Characteristics of the 865 RAPIER Be :
Frame: HMG, C4, with Beryllium mesh. Competition Grip handle.
Designed for: Advanced club players to national level tournament players.
Characteristics: Built to the same weight, balance and flex standards as the classic Rapier Pro, the RAPIER Be combines an oversized head with light weight and innovative Beryllium mesh to deliver great control with rapid response and head speed.
BLACK KNIGHT 865 RAPIER FEATURES:
BERYLLIUM/ GRAPHITE MESH:
Lighter and stronger than Titanium, it is found in serious performance level racquets. Many parts of supersonic aircraft are made of beryllium alloys because of beryllium's lightness, stiffness, and dimensional stability.
a highly effective form of carbon-graphite rated above conventional High Modulus Graphite.
HMG or HGH MODULUS GRAPHITE:
A high strength, high performance grade of graphite fibre.
In spite of the recent popularity of complementary materials such as Titanium, Beryllium and BrainWeave, the type and quality of the Graphite is the most important material factor in the features and performance of higher range racquets. The nature and mix of the graphite fibres will determine strength, torque, flex, weight, vibration dampening and response. Some factors critical to the quality of the finished graphite product are:
-The quality of the raw graphite filaments;
-The treatment process (which immerses the graphite in an epoxy compound and converts the hair-like filaments into workable sheets);
-The mold design
-The lay up process
-The application of appropriate internal pressure and temperature during the curing process.
