Volkl Catapult Technology
1. Pre-Load - Activating the Catapult: The Catapult is a spring freely mounted onto the frame and is pre-loaded during the stringing process.
2. Control Phase - Receive Time: As the ball hits the string bed, the Catapult spring compresses and energizes or "loads" the catapult, thus creating a deeper string bed pocket. The increase in receive time (the Control Phase) results in 30% more control and a larger sweetspot.
3. Power Phase - Release Time: The explosive resetting of the Catapult shortens the release time (the Power Phase) by 30%, delivering more power. Power is further enhanced because the ball compresses less and retains more of its own energy.
