The Centric offers a solid blend of stability, power, comfort and maneuverability. This one is a solid choice for the intermediate level player seeking the best racquet for their game within the PowerAngle patented diagonally-strung family. The open string pattern (18/18) provides a lively response and offers easy access to spin. Being a diagonally strung racquet, it features equal length diagonal strings. PowerAngle claims this greatly increases comfort over the longer main strings, shorter cross strings of a traditional racquet. With equal length diagonal strings, PowerAngle claims string vibration is reduced by 40%. Our on court testing has shown the Centric to be a very comfortable feeling racquet with a plush feel offered at impact. A great option for club lever players, those with moderate swing speeds will find plenty of pace on serves and groundstrokes with this racquet. At net the racquet feels very mobile. We found enough pop to get high volleys away, while also enjoying good depth on shots when stretched wide or caught deep around the service line. The head heavy balances places plenty of mass behind the ball helping keep the racquet stable even when the pace picks up. With its generous sweetspot and comfort from all areas of the court, the Centric makes a great doubles stick and a solid choice for all court singles players. Players at the 3.5+ level looking for a maneuverable racquet with a solid feel, some nice pop and plenty of control from spin generation should definitely take this one for a demo.
