R1 (Joola)

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.

The joola rc1 blade is a blade that is designed for either defensive long pips players or semi offensive players. It is an extremely light weighted blade, at only 75 grams. not only is it light, but the wood is also extremely soft, it is a very thick balsa wood blade.

the speed is pretty good. Though, it is not really that sufficient for looping in my opinion. The ball does seem to like dig into the blade a lot, causing a great feel for the ball. This is why it is a pretty good semi defensive blade. you can really feel the ball and control the placement and arc of the ball when you hit it.
