A lot of power, good control and durability – now in an upgraded "S" version which offers better feel, removable bumper and enhanced maneuverability.

Reviews:

Well, the new version of the Carboflex 130, now with an S added to its name – how is it different than the previous model?

From user reviews it’s clear the racket has been definitely improved. The grommet strip has been modified to protect the string from fraying and you can even remove the bumper (when restringing) to make the racquet a bit lighter and shift the balance point.

Now let’s talk about the playing characteristics – the playability has not been changed, only improved. It still offers very good power (maybe even slightly more of it now) and durability, plus control has been boosted – the racquet has an amazing feel, especially hitting drop shots is much better now, you can play with confidence that the ball will go exactly where you want it.

And last but not the least, even the maneuverability has been enhanced – it seems the 130 S goes through the air a bit faster which makes volleying and other quick swings easier.
