The latest masterpiece from Achim Rendler for 2021
The Hyperion combines two opposite sides for different playing techniques. The forehand offers a linear offensive playing side with the best control values, while the backhand also optimises the best control for all-round play to offensive with extreme disruptive effect for pimple out surfaces.
Each blade is hand made in Germany to perfection by Achim Rendler who also makes some blades for Dr Neubauer.
The new competition wood is now made up of nine layers and apart from the composite material between the glued wood layers that does not contain any foreign matter. The Hyperion has exactly the same racket structure as the Chevalier, even the order of the layers used is the same. The only thing that has changed now is the geometric course of the layers used, which are reversed in the diagonal course of the Hyperion in the backhand. Thus, compared to the Chevalier the Hyperion has now become a combination blade, because the backhand is now significantly slower and more sensitive under the use of pimple out surfaces. However, the fast, linear play of the forehand of the original Chevalier under professional playing techniques with 42-44 ° hard playing surfaces for the rubber (European hardness standard) should be guaranteed and the trajectory of the plastic ball should be kept extremely low so that the balls are more difficult to block or return back by the opponent and cant be attacked easily. However, sponges below the stated degree of hardness of 42 ° European hardness standard should not be used. You can use much harder sponges but this will compromise good ball control. Interestingly, the spin behaviour increases with the use of very hard elastic sponges. The backhand of the Hyperion which is now also very linear should get high spin reversal when used with long pimple rubber, a blockers dream and will work just as well with normal rubbers both sides if extra control is required to backhand.
