Babolat Counter Vertuo is an excellent solution for players who are looking for a more price friendly racket that does not detract from quality. Babolat has made a very good racket for intermediate/beginners, where the sweatspot on the racket is bigger and more forgiving than in the more expensive and more professional rackets.
Babolat counter Vertuo has a carbon frame that makes the racket very durable and in combination with the fiberglass surface and the soft fibers used to produce the racket, you get a racket with a lot of power and a soft feel. Usually Babolat makes rackets with a harder feeling, but with the new Counter Vertuo they have changed the structure with their black EVA which gives a nice soft feeling when you hit the ball.
So if you want a racket that gives you a soft feel at ball contact and a good mix of speed and control, this racket is the one to choose. Due to the round head the rakcet has really good control but does not compromise on power.
