How Does the Adidas Adipower CTRL 3.3 perform?

The 2024 update to Adidas's best-selling Adipower CTRL is mainly a cosmetic change. It is still a versatile, round racket with medium balance, medium hardness, and a large sweet spot that will help you in defense as much as offense.
This racket will help you deliver precision to your shots. It will not hurt intermediate and up players in defense, but with the low ball output, players with this racket will need to follow through on their shots properly from the back of the court.
This racket will reassure control-oriented players who will attain very strong precision resulting from its hardness as well as its great maneuverability and wide sweet spot.
The Adipower Spin Blade is stronger than the Metalbone's and will help apply spin on volleys and kick smashes.
Reviewers note: the racket was tested in comparison with other control rackets - Metheora Dual, Ionic Control - at 25°C.

This is a very maneuverable racket, with which we are able to have a lot of control. It has a medium balance and offers a high ball output, which makes defense easy and allows us put shoot great lobs to advance to the net easily.

A powerful round racket that provides maximum versatility. Very similar to last year's with a slightly larger sweet spot. Medium-hard touch makes it not suitable for beginners.
