With our TIMBER Line, we rely on the pure performance of natural wood and veneer structures. In the layer structure we differentiate in 5 or 7 layers.With TIMBER 5 the ideal entry into the competition area is possible, with moderate speed but high control rates and thanks to maximum ball feeling. TIMBER 7 blades are standing for more hardness and should be understood as the suitable alternative for variable topspin players who prefer to hit the ball with a pure wood racket. TIMBER5 DEF is the blade of the Basic Line, with the highest control values. The secret behind this enormous ball control is the walnut veneer and the thin Limba wood veneer. They slow down rather than generating speed. Geometry and weight balance are optimized for defensive play. They facilitate the handling in the distance and support the ball feeling. Your choice of rubber determines whether you would like to play a classic or modern defense with the TIMBER 5 DEF.
