We are happy to announce a new addition to the “Incognito series”, the Crucible Incognito, set for release around mid January 2020.
The mold is exactly the same as the original Crucible which was released in 2018, but the construction is not.
All racquets in the “Incognito series” are made of 100% Toray Japan carbon fiber using prepreg technology.
Prepreg is a composite material in which a reinforcement fiber is pre-impregnated with resin in a specific ratio. This allows for direct laying into a mold without having to add resin. Every racquet has the same ratio of resin with no excess or dry spots. Uniform thickness allows for all racquets to be almost identical, with the same weight and balance as per advertised specifications.
The racquet shape has proven its success over the years and is still actively offered by many brands around the world. Some players call it “hybrid” as it's not exactly a “bridged” racquet like the Xamsa Obsidian, and it's not a teardrop racquet like the Xamsa PXT.
The original Crucible is considered an almost flawless racquet by many Xamsa supporters and, based on the feedback we received, the only room for improvement was the maneuverability.
The prepreg technology allows racquets to be made lighter and more powerful without compromising control. We made a few prototypes with different weights and balances, and had our supporters test them. A strung weight/balance of 145 g / 355 mm proved to be the winner and in September 2019 we placed a factory order for the first 300 Crucible Incognito racquets.
The Crucible Incognito is 10 g lighter and 10 mm more head light than the original Crucible.
