The frame is slightly softer than on many other models, as it is made of carbon fiber and fiberglass. The hitting surface is made of 3K carbon fiber and underneath is the Eva Soft core. These choices of materials make this racket more lightweight and soft, and thus easier to handle.
A mid-level balance point will help the player in both modes of play, but as there are several soft features, the balance point will provide even more support in defensive play.
The drop shape combined with the soft materials in the hitting surface and core provide a larger sweet spot. So it will be easier to create good ball hits.

Information about the RS brand
It was tennis star Robin Söderling who founded the RS Sports brand in 2013 and it all started with his self-designed tennis ball. He loves tennis and hadn’t yet found the perfect tennis ball, so he created his own perfect ball.
Then Robin Söderling, together with his own team of engineers, product developers and other players, started to expand the range of RS Sports. The team always works from their love of tennis, quality, materials and clean design with all parts of the company.

Benefits of RS Prime Team Edition Black
It is a light and soft padel racket, which gives the player more help for the defensive game, and it creates fewer vibrations. This makes it easier in the swing and more ergonomic for the player.
This model can provide very good help to strengthen the defensive game on the padel court. With great help from the soft hitting surface and core, combined with medium balance and a slightly softer frame. The surface of the racket is a bit rough, much like sandpaper, which will be a great help for the player when he wants to add some spin to the balls.
It can be challenging for the player to get good use out of this racket in offensive play, so it requires a higher level player to get the most out of this racket model. The racket shape, medium balance and sandy surface of the racket may provide some help for an offensive game, but it will still require a lot from the player.
