PACIFIC INP2 – a new generation of tennis rackets made of basalt

The PACIFIC company, which acquired Fischer Racket Division in 2009, introduced a new series of tennis rackets produced of basalt fibers according to INP2 technology.

New rackets are stronger by 28% and they dampen vibration by 20% better than the previous generation of rackets, produced by the original technology BasaltX. But the material used for the rackets remained natural and environmentally friendly.

PACIFIC has been producing tennis rackets made of basalt fibers since 2010. ASA.TEC, specializing in the research and development of new raw materials, has become the research partner of PACIFIC since the same year. At that time, it was a truly revolutionary solution.

Continuous basalt fibers, used for the PACIFIC rackets, provides enhanced comfort and precise feedback during the game.  Among the first players, trying innovative rackets, were the winners of the Grand Slam Michael Stich and Yevgeny Kafelnikov. However, this great sports equipment is also affordable for ordinary tennis players, because the price for the non-professional models of Pacific BX2 series stands at about $ 200.
