An extremely thick Balsa core defines the character of the JOOLA R*1. It provides a totally new, controlled playing feeling, in conjunction with extremely high speed. The duration of the ball contact is considerably longer than with conventional blades - the ball, so to speak, buries itself into the blade. This provides excellent ball feeling.
Attacking players, that primarily play with safe topspins, will particularly appreciate this blade. Furthermore, the JOOLA R*1 is also perfectly suited for long pimple players - the dreaded ball disturbance of the "flap" effect can be played with great control.
