Re-Impact rackets provide sheer gaming fun for all table tennis players, regardless of whether they play professionally or casually. These rackets serve as effective learning tools for players with weaker techniques, while also being universally useful for pro players. Our vision of achieving a perfect feel for the ball and sheer gaming fun is reflected in the design of our rackets. They incorporate several beneficial features for modern competitive play, such as:
- Consistent lightweight design for competition rackets, which can be made heavier upon request,
- Asymmetric form of the grip and the head to alleviate pressure on the arm and shoulder joints,
- Exceptionally good feedback to your hand for an enhanced gaming experience,
- Transmission of perceptible and audible impulses to your thumb, index finger, and heel of the hand,
- Complete neutralization of the self-oscillation of the wood in the rest of your hand,
- Comfortable handles and rackets with beveled edges in the region of your fingers,
- Large sweet spot, with larger rackets offering larger ideal striking areas.
Rackets specifically designed for competitions are available at Re-Impact. These rackets have a high dynamic catapult characteristic with linear ball takeoff behavior. With softer hits, they create a noticeable delay in the takeoff behavior of the ball, while hard hits with short movements result in extreme speed acceleration that remains straightforward. The feel and feedback from the ball are excellent, even at high speeds, enabling players to improve their games significantly. This makes these rackets ideal learning tools that do not forgive mistakes, particularly for players with weaker techniques. This successful synthesis of attack and control behavior expands the game and technique range of the competition rackets from Re-Impact.
The special diagonal assembly of the balsa veneer creates two independent levels of play, likely a unique feature:
- Two independent speed and playing styles are incorporated into the racket,
- An indirect universal area 1 and a direct faster offensive area 2,
- These areas are distinct and can only be activated by turning the racket,
- These areas allow for balanced gameplay in any area of the game with a symmetrical racket when playing forehand or backhand,
- A combined racket with a faster forehand and a slower backhand introduces 2 additional areas,
- These areas can be played both indirectly and directly.
The KSLS system marks these areas through four one-sided notches on the handle. Speed option 1 represents the slower, more controlled game level (for right-handed players, the notches on the handle point upwards). Speed option 2 represents the faster, more direct game level (for right-handed players, the notches point downwards when the racket is turned around).
Other optional innovations include:
- The Ship's Propeller, a racket handle twisted like a screw, creating an open hand position of 135° for forehand play and a closed hand position of 45° for backhand play,
- The Cone Handle, a slim, extended, round handle designed to be held with your thumb and index finger, which can be reinforced evenly backwards to a handle circumference of 120mm,
- The Beaver Handle, a handle that tilts 45° downwards on the grip attachment in your inside hand, enabling hitting variations without attachment,
- The Ergonomic Grip, a replica of the James Haylord handle, with a grip attachment resembling a gun handle that holds anatomically perfect in your inside hand, facilitating a shake hand movement,
- The MCP system, a sophisticated handle-racket-tuning system, where balsa wood on the outside provides a comfortable grip and maintains high elasticity in the oscillation area of the racket head. This can greatly increase the spin elasticity of the racket and prevent self-oscillation of the racket from being transferred to the hand. The KSLS system can be adjusted to the individual measurements of the table tennis player after a change of the handle shell,
- The KSLS system can be adjusted to cater to individual player requirements after a change of the handle shell,
- All handle shapes can be customized considering the size of the hand, promoting the development of optimal racket control techniques. This can help compensate for uncomfortable forehand grip positions. Classical handle shapes - straight, concave, and anatomical - are, of course, also available.
