Designed in conjunction with the legendary Jonathon Power, whose name adorns the shaft, the Harrow Vibe is designed with a slightly flexible shaft with an even balance to encourage ultimate control.
With a mid-balance point and relatively light all-round frame, the Harrow Jonathan Power Vibe automatically feels comfortable in your hand regardless of what kind of racket you’re used to playing with – immediately giving you that ‘I’‘m going to play better with this’ kind of feeling.
The 500cm2 head is one of the largest around, giving you plenty of space to target the ball with, and when you hit the sweet spot on this racket you know about it! The reverberation, similar to the response you get when you hit a perfect drive off the golf tee, is as satisfying feeling as you’ll ever get on court.
That said, if you are a wild swinger and tend to only hit the sweet spot once a season, the racket can be surprisingly unforgiving towards the frame.
The balance and string pattern create a racket that performs equally well when cutting through the ball, with plenty of feel, or when taking on the power game – meaning the play-ability is top class.
However the durability of the racket is a concern. The frame construction is fragile meaning that, and the SXtra team can testify, a mistimed connection on a wall-hugger opens you up to broken racket territory! We’ve gone through two models so far with the same kind of wall impact that many other rackets absorb without any issue.
