A lot of power, good control and durability – this racquet is a great compromise between maneuverable rackets for volleying and heavier models for driving games.

Update: This racket has been already replaced by newer version – the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 S.

Reviews:

The Carboflex 130 Basaltex Multiaxial is the slightly heavier brother of the popular Carboflex 125. The 5 gram difference doesn’t seem like a lot but players report you can definitely feel the difference when swinging,

It also makes this racket slower, less maneuverable and forces you to follow the whole swing instead of just flicking using your wrist. Nevertheless, the maneuverability is still on a good level and while the 130 isn’t as good for volleying, the additional weight makes it more effective for a classic length game.

Concerning other playing capabilities, it has a lot of power (although not as much as the 125), nice feel and responsiveness, it’s durable and the string is top notch. Only the grip could have been better.

Some users also mentioned that the sweet spot is more forgiving (compared to the 125) which makes this racket more suitable for players without a consistent strike.
