This racquet is light and maneuverable, yet the Power Bridge 6 Attiva doesn’t lack substance. There’s still plenty of backbone to handle well-struck shots from your opponents and to deliver some of your own. That could be because the racquet has Power Bridge, strong carbon fibers called DNX at 6 o’clock on the racquet face, to give players added power and stability. The softer, more rounded grip is made to fit better in a woman’s hand, but our male playtesters didn’t seem to mind. With a good blend of power and control, men said the racquet was fun to play with. The frame moves through the air easily, so you can put plenty of pace and spin on ground strokes and serves. The quick handling also helped at net where most said volleying was crisp. But some playtesters reported that the lack of weight in the head caused slight wobbling if they hit the ball off-center.
“This racquet makes you want to attack every shot”; “Ideal for the doubles specialist”; “Very stable for such a light frame.”
