Racket Review: Pacific BXT X Fast Pro
Originally published on 12/05/17 00:00
Pacific BXT X Fast Pro was included in tennishead's 2017 racket reviews for advanced players, and it helps add power.
Pacific is not necessarily a premium brand in the market but they do have an ATP player using one of their range and that is the charismatic Cypriot, Marcos Baghdatis.
The new technological concept Pacific have brought to the BXT X Fast Pro is a strategically constructed 'rounder' shaft/throat region, which has allowed the racket upon instant impact with the ball to remain more rigid and stable allowing maximum energy return to the ball.
Simplistically, it has provided more power to your shots which Jem agreed with when he tested it out. He said: “I felt it helped with my groundstrokes in particular as the large sweet spot made hitting powerful groundstrokes easier.”
Jenny tested it out too and agreed in terms of the power that came from the racket but she found it a little too head heavy at 310g and a lack of feel, particularly at the net. The appearance of the racket however is very sharp with the combination of the bright orange, black and silver colours.
