Fabio Ferro

Good for both aggressive and conservative player but a little bit more for the aggressive bc rigid core, 12k carbon, reactive situation, but not too rigid in the back as without the oversized surface. Normally a racquet of this quality should cost 3x more.

This Hybrid Hard model is focused on advanced players, both attacking right side players and classic left-side players who want a hard racquet to finish points on a fast court. We were all surprised by Kuikma's launch of this high-end line, but they have also surprised us with the high quality of the racquets.
