Racket review: Pacific BX2 Speed Comp
Originally published on 28/05/14
While HEAD has gone, well, head-over-heels about Graphene, the ultra-light, ultra-strong carbon-based material that is now infused across its performance range, Pacific has been pushing its own bit of chemical mastery into its frames.
Specifically engineered BasaltX fibres offer enhanced comfort, feel, stability and power – and the Speed Comp certainly delivers in those last two departments.
It feels remarkably light for its size – until you strike the ball, at which point the power comes effortlessly from a stringbed with a huge sweetspot, thanks to Pacific’s patented Speed Zone system, which promises to make off-centre hits a thing of the past. It’s solid, sure, but it can’t perform miracles!
