I have been working on these new models for a few days and will post more data as it is available but right now here a few points about this fascinating racquet concept.
The two (2) models are Speed Adaptive and Instinct Adaptive. The racquets are both new versions of the current models with slightly newer graphics, that are, in my opinion very cool! The Instinct has new graphics which will appeal to more players.
First, the Adaptive Tuning can create thirty-two (32) possible combinations, including increasing the overall length of the racquet.
The racquets are shipped in the lightest (285 gram), 16×19, 27.0-inch length format, and swing weight 287.
The Adaptive Tuning Kit is required and costs $29.00. In the “kit” you will find a “heavy” butt cap insert, three (3) sets of grommet inserts to add weight and change string pattern, and three (3) sleeves that go onto the shaft to create length.
The length modification can be made quickly by the player, if necessary, however, the other modifications require the racquet to be unstrung.
These modifications should be left to your racquet technician.
Below is a spreadsheet representing the various combinations as they are applied. This does not include all the options because the 16×16 grommet set did not participate in this session.
This was done at Racquet Quest, LLC and represents actual data, not calculated characteristics.
