How Does the Babolat Counter Vertuo perform?

Babolat has three lines:
1. The Viper line for advanced players
2. The Veron line for intermediate players
3. The Vertuo line for beginner players (this racket)
Each line has three models for different playing styles:
1. The Technical for powerful attackers
2. The Air for fast attackers
3. The Counter for counterattackers and defenders (this racket)
This year’s model is the same as last year’s with a few minor changes (the following applies to the entire Vertuo line):
- The paint job
- The handle is slightly larger
- The racket now has a strap interchange system
This racket is designed for intermediate and/or beginner players who like a soft touch, a wide sweet spot, and easy handling. Its fiberglass surface and vibration absorption system give it high ball output, or as Babolat refers to it, “easy power”.
The Babolat Counter Vertuo is a great option for defense-oriented players who are increasing the intensity of their game.
