Thread: Babolat Racquets
05-15-2004, 07:53 PM #1
does anyone here has any experience with Babolat racquets? I live in New Zealand and its very hard and pricy to get top yonex racquets here. People here have been using the babolat racquets, I cant decide on 2 different model, the Comet and the Pulsar, can anyone help me out here?
according to the babolat website, the comet is more for offensive singles and the pulsar is for doubles. as they have 2g in weight difference and 5mm in balance point difference and comet is more stiff in its shaft...

I remember there were several old threads talking about babolat rackets, mainly on the satelite series. Maybe type babolat or babolat comet in "Search" can give u some help.

I own both the Comet and Pulsar.
I can hardly tell the difference between the two.
However I seem to be able to hit the sweetspot of the Pulsar more often that the Comet.
Both have same power level (but is low compared to Yonex MP series).
Babolat rackets seem to have good finish and cosmetics.
However, one thing I don't quite like about them is that there seem to be alot of "drag" when I swing the rackets.
Its like having alot of air resistance.
May be psychological though.
Control is tops.
Feel is a bit "muted". Too good vibration dampening...
Similar flex to Iso Tour 800.

I have tried the Pulsar and I find it is a very good doubles racquet. It has nice maneuvrability. I played with one that was strung with Ashaway Rally 22 at 23lbs. I found that it had good repulsion and smashed noticeablly harder than my Carlton Airblade 900. Probably more of my technique though, since I don't really have the swing speed to play with ultra stiff racquets anymore. I have to admit that it is shorter than most other racquets and the handle is quite round.
Hope this helps,

interesting comments, i guess i might just work on my technique to get more power out of my current yonex racquets then....
one thing i do notice when i tried the pulsar the other day is that it is abit shorter than my yonex. when i compare them side by side, yonex is about 2 cm longer....

I have a Comet and a Chrono. When I first got the Comet, I don't feel much power. However, the factory string broke and I restrung it using YY 65 at 22lb, I start feeling the power, and the control is always excellent. I think the Comet is very similiar to Carlton AS-TI in weight, power, control, balance point, .... On the other hand, with the factory string, my Chrono generate a lot of power mainly because it's head heavy. I really enjoy my 2 Babolat's and they are only 50 - 60% of the price of the top Yonex models.
