This racket delivers controlled power for advanced players looking to add that missing X-Factor to their smash. Featuring Bi-Axial dynamics, an optimetric head shape, Pro V12 Grommets and a Head heavy balance this frame is the hallmark of controlled power. The Stabilizer top cap delivers yet more stiffness which gives greater shot accuracy and control. With the direct fibre transfer system and an extra stiff shaft this is the racket of choice for Dicky Palyama, highest world ranking No.7.
VAPOUR TRAIL ELITE FEATURES:
JAPANESE HM CARBON:
Sourced from Japan, Japanese Hi Modulus [HM]Carbon is the highest specification carbon available on the market ensuring your Carlton frame will outperform all other construction materials for frame response and stability. XTREME TENSION FRAME:
Precision engineering and the utilization of the finest construction materials ensures your Carlton frame can accommodate 11% higher string tensions compared with competitor frames. HEAD
Bio-mechanical analysis of the overhead badminton swing highlights two distinct aerodynamic directions evident during the swing phase.
Carlton's Bi-Axial Dynamic frame develops more efficient aerodynamics in both directions compared to competitor frames.
This increased efficiency is delivered through a cross sectional frame profile that is more aerodynamic than competitor frames. During development, over 80% of players stated the new Bi-Axial frame profile delivered increased swing speed.
By combining the larger sweet spot size (resulting from the isometric geometry) and the increased air speed and control (created by the smaller conventional/Circometric geometry) within the same head shape, the new Optimetric head geometry delivers both power, airspeed and control in one frame. PRO V12 GROMMETS:
Positioned at 3 and 9 o'clock, these specialized grommets have been softened to allow greater string movement thereby increasing power across the hitting zone. HANDLE
STABILIZER TOP CAP:
By introducing 4 convex channels into the top cap, stiffness of the top cap is increased allowing for greater shot accuracy and control.
