adidas adiPower Pro (each)
[ST216601]
US$7.25
by Mark Appleton Date Added: Wednesday 29 May, 2013
Tested at 30x31 lb, 10% prestretch.

Impressions. Similar to the BG66 family: very thin, slightly shiny. Very easy to string, but quite "springy" when pulled by hand.

Power. Lots and lots of it, and it's easy to tap. First session saw me hitting EVERYTHING long, and it has a really wicked smash and drive. Wristy "tap" shots just fly off. One of the best power/effort ratios I've seen since 66UM.

Control. "Flat" shots - blocks, serves - are very easy to put where you want them, but slices were intially a bit wayward, the shuttle seeming to "slide" slightly and lose depth. However, this problem mostly disappeared after a few hours; must have just been the protective coating burning off. At high tension, you can hit the lines and tape on purpose if you want.

Feel. Excellent, a really solid PUNCH when you absolutely whack it (to the point where I starting smashing JUST for this reason) and a delicate tickle when you're at the net. Thin strings tend to be good at this, but the Adipower Pro was pleasantly "hard" where the BG66 are softer.

Sound. Outstanding - a really sharp "whip-crack" with a high pitch. Doesn't tail; just BANG, and gone.

Durability. It's had ten hours with me - 31 lb, plastic shuttles - and hasn't broke. Can't really say much more than that. Holds tension reasonably well, too.


If this is a sign of things to come from Adidas, they deserve a pat on the back. Trouble is, I don't want to cut this out to test the other four samples now!
