How Does the Drop Shot Canyon Pro perform?

Pablo Lima’s Drop Shot Canyon Pro is marketed as a hard teardrop, but we characterize it as a medium hardness diamond format racket.
Its balance measures 27 cm, which is high.
Curiously, this is a racket where reviewers disagree often about its characteristics, some citing its surprising maneuverability despite its high balance.
But, in general, it is a comfortable, complete racket for advanced players due to its medium touch, which increases the size of the sweet spot compared to harder diamonds.
Moreover, most reviewers said its maneuverability was surprisingly high despite being a heavy, high balance diamond.
Its mini Drop Shot logo-shaped reliefs on the racket face are more for aesthetics as they add little spin.

A rather complete diamond. Very comfortable - the impact is solid.

Padel Review

Difficult but not super difficult - this racket suits advanced players with trained arms. It has a hard touch for a good mix of power and control, with a low ball output that doesn’t tolerate a small swing.
