Racket Review: Pacific BXT Raptor

PACIFIC BXT Raptor

It’s easy to use as it feels solid behind all of my shots

The Raptor will go easy on those tennis elbows while also looking good

In the second part of our 2017 racket reviews our testers put rackets aimed at club players through their paces.

At 24mm the beam of the Pacific BXT Raptor is wider than most of the other intermediate rackets offering players greater stability with a less stiff feel to the racket. If you’re prone to tennis elbow or arm issues, then this racket is more forgiving in terms of protection.

Howard and Jem were impressed with the modern matte look of the Raptor combined with its black and orange colour combination. In the playing stakes the mixture of control and power was evident for both players in their evaluation.

“It has loads of control – I even felt like I could never miss and it’s easy to use as it feels solid behind all of my shots,” said Howard. Jem agreed and admitted he was quite surprised how well the racket played and felt given it was a less well-known brand.
