The Vanguard Hybrid Invikta racquet has developed its reputation as a racquet for players who require a little more power due to its slightly top-heavy weight and longer grip that allows players to hit the ball a little further away from the body. This allows for a larger swing arc and therefore higher hitting speeds.
This new Vanguard Hybrid Series racquet benefits from a number of new technological improvements, including a new grip, edge protection and a double layer of carbon fiber (graphite) surface. The "Geo-Grip" is highly cushioned and was introduced specifically for the Vanguard line. It has a high degree of moisture absorption and tackiness. The QuadCarbon fiber surface uses two layers of woven carbon fiber on each side of the paddle (four layers in total) to ensure even play and exceptional durability. Testers describe the changes to the sweetspot made by the new upper material as "amazing" and "transformative," giving the Vanguard Hybrid Invikta a much larger sweetspot that is further down the clubface than ever before. This gives you the extra range and power the Inviktas are known for, with more defensive blocking and ball control when the ball is hit closer to the grip. The edge protector is lightweight and has a slim profile, so your paddle stays safe but misses are minimized.
The Vanguard Hybrid Invikta Paddle is available in a light weight range of 210 - 220 grams and a medium weight range of 220 - 230 grams. It uses the thick X5 polymer core to create a soft, cushioned feel that improves short balls and controlled shots such as stop balls, while maintaining the power for butterflies.
The Vanguard Hybrid Invikta Paddle is for players who want to do everything with ease, comfort and speed.
