Piton 7.0 is a high-end intermediate racket made of 80% carbon. There are 3 layers of fiber glass and 1 layer of carbon 12K fibers. These layers combined with Soft Rubber EVA creates a racket full of power and great control. Due to the high quality of material in this racket the racket also lasts longer. That is also why the price is a bit higher than most intermediate rackets.
