Adidas Essnova Carbon Control Paddle: HD and LD
The adidas ESSNOVA paddles utilise a forgiving "Carbon 3K" face material and thicker-than-average 14.28mm (0.56") thick poly honeycomb core, resulting in wonderful control and feel. They come in a choice of CARBON CTRL HD (blue) or CARBON CTRL LD (green), The difference is subtle but the advanced player will notice the difference. HD stands for "high-density" which will inject a small measure of power to high speed shots, along with control and feel. LD stands for "low-density" and will suit players who have enough power already and are looking for a paddle with greater ball feel and higher comfort. HD paddles have a red butt cap and LD paddles have a black one.
Both the HD and LD paddles will give the player consistent ball response over nearly the entire paddle face. The result? A highly control-oriented paddle with enough power to get your ground strokes deep into your opponent's side of the court.
The adidas ESSNOVA CTRL paddles also feature "Spin Blade" technology for great ball movement on cuts and slices and carbon reinforcement in the frame for durability. It is a traditionally-shaped paddle and stays in the perfect 7.7 to 8.2 oz. weight range like adidas' other models.
This is an all-court paddle for those who prioritise finesse and touch shots over the power game.
