Micke at Elitepadel reviewing the SET Hyena

Our opinion and review of the SET Hyena 2022 after testing the racket is that it is a really good racket with a large sweetspot that makes it easier to get the ball off even on a bad hit. The racket also has a softer hitting surface with 3K carbon fiber. This helps in the offensive game.

A softer hitting surface in 3K carbon fibre and a medium-hard core in Eva Soft Ultra. The carbon fibre frame gives a little more stiffness to the racket and more durability when it receives impacts or ball hits that come too far out on the racket.

The racket shape makes it more forgiving for players who do not have much experience in the game or simply for those who are mainly looking for control in the game.

A racket that is best suited for defensive play with the round racket shape, medium hitting surface and core. A medium level balance point can provide benefits in both types of play, but extra strength may be needed from the player if they are to benefit from the racket in an offensive game.

Benefits of Set Hyena 2022

The racket shape provides a larger sweetspot and thus it easier to get away good balls. A softer hitting surface in 3K carbon fiber, a softer core and medium balance can provide the player with really good offensive play. The frame is extra durable with its protective 100% carbon fiber material.


It will be challenging for the player to be able to utilize this racket for explosive play. Although it can provide good speed in the balls, it will be difficult to smash out the opponents or to succeed in firing away high balls with proper speed.
