Bourne Hexagon 8.8
Varlion mid-level padel racket with a teardrop shape, which favors power over control. Ideal for players who like soft rackets.
It is made of a bi-directional tubular of fiberglass and carbon, reinforced by plain carbon fiber fabric at the heart.
Its core is made of 38mm Eva Hypersoft medium hardness and is laminated with 3 layers of plain fiberglass fabric, impregnated in Varlion's exclusive VAR-FLEX epoxy resin for maximum elasticity and resistance, and covered by a layer of dioxide titanium
Designed with Hexagon frame to make it more resistant and rigid. And finally, it is worth highlighting the Handlesafety technology, a new safety system for the handle. Normally, in all rackets the rope comes out from a centered hole which is attached to the handle frame by means of a pin, rivets, nails, etc. However, with this system, the rope goes through the two walls of the handle and comes out on both sides of the tip, thus giving 100% safety and comfort to the grip.
Lethal Weapon and Hexagon frame are brands and utility models registered in the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office, and therefore exclusively owned and used by Varlion.
Hexagonal frame whose shape provides greater rigidity and resistance to the racket, thanks to the creation of a rib in the frame, which has a straight part (edge) and a chamfered part (chamfer).
ADAPTED & GRADUAL HOLES
Gradual drilling technology adapted to the racket shape. It consists of using 3 different hole sizes, making them smaller in the central area (10 mm in diameter), medium in the middle area until we get close to the frame (11.5 mm) and large in the perimeter area or closest to the frame (13 mm). With this perforation we are able to compensate the excessive flexibility of the center of the racket with the low flexibility of the area of the core that joins the frame, thus allowing greater homogeneity to blows and increasing the resistance of the core.
This drilling technology has also been used with 2 diameters instead of 3 (13mm in the perimeter area and 11.5mm in the central area) in ranges of rackets not used by professional players as they turn out to be softer due to the fact that the drill in the central area it is 11.5mm instead of 10mm.
Medium soft foam core with spectacular hardness and rebound measures, which gives a very balanced control and power to the racket, in normal ambient temperatures between 10 and 25/30ºC.
