its round head and 16*19 stringing pattern accelerate spin.
Its round head (640 cm²) provides more powerful strokes.
Its well-balanced grip enables you to put the ball where you want it
Its graphite composition absorbs vibrations incredibly well
The Stab system at the head provides excellent stability on impact.
Stab System technology
The Stab System is located on the head of the racket at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock. The added graphite provides more stability on impact. It enables you to remain extremely stable on impact with the ball.
High modulus graphite
The high modulus graphite efficiently dampens vibrations in the racket when hitting the ball. It therefore provides outstanding comfort thanks to the dampened vibrations.
Its neutral balance point (32.5 cm) makes the racket's head very easy to manoeuvre. This balance provides the TR890 with a great deal of versatility, whether hitting from the base line or approaching the net.
The stiffness rating of 69 greatly improves the racket's power, with little distortion on impact.
When choosing your racket, keep the following in mind:
Stiff frame: > 64 – 66 RA
Flexible frame: < 64 – 66 RA.
The stiffer the frame, the shorter the contact time: you lose control but gain power.
An inertia of 285 prevents the frame from distorting during fast acceleration, delivering power and precision. The higher the inertia, the harder the racket is to swing and manoeuvre, but the greater the power. The lower the inertia, the easier the racket is to swing and manoeuvre, providing more control but less power
The size of the TR890's head (640 cm²) provides power, forgiveness and powerful spin.
Its open 16 x 19 stringing pattern accentuates spin.
- Midsize – small head size: < 97 inch² or 625 cm²
- Mid plus (MP) – standard head size: 97-105 inch² or 626-677 cm²
- Oversize (OS) – large head size: 106-115 inch² or 678-742 cm²
- Super oversize – very large head size: > 116 inch² or 742 cm².
Its weight (285 g) provides a good combination of power and manoeuvrability.
For your information:
- Less than 260 g: lightweight rackets, for comfort and easy handling.
- 260 to 295 g: classic rackets (intermediate) for versatility.
- 300 to 315 g: rackets for players with good technique.
- > 315 g: rackets for high-level competitors with a strong game.
