adidas Power Hybrid (each)
[ST617212]
US$7.25

Adidas Power Hybrid mini-review. Panda Revelation, 30x31.

Stringing - a strange experience. The mains are very slippery - like old Nanogy - but the crosses are reasonably rough. Cue easy, but LOUD, weaving.

Power - 7/10. With full swings, it hit pretty hard - had no trouble reaching the baseline when I wanted to. However, shots off a short swing needed a bit more "push-through". Likes smashing and driving.

Control - 7/10. The roughness comes in handy, and it slices well from the rear-court and on "cut" drives. It also blocks smashes pretty accurately. It's a tiny bit bouncy close to the net, though.

Feel - 7.5, 6/10. Why two ratings? When hit hard, there is a pleasant - and surprising - crispness for such a thick string. However, the situation reverses as I approach the net, where it becomes a bit "dead". I could barely feel net spinners, for example.

Sound - 7/10. Thick string = lots of bass.

Tension-holding - held on very well until I started playing it, then took a bit of a dive. I suspect this has to do with the roughness.

Conclusion... I'm not sure what the hybridization is bringing to the party, but overall I found it fairly good. I would have liked some more feel with softer shots, but a thick string (or strings, in this case) was always going to fall down here.

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
