Okay STX sent us the the new Ultra Power a few weeks ago so here’s everything you need to know about the Ultra Power.
The biggest selling point of the ultra power is the new power ramp technology which is based off the game jai alai
Instead of STX’s traditional forward cant offset which is designed for a higher pocket. The offset on the Ultra Power angles upwards slightly to effectively and instantly increase your shot power.
Because of this, the folks over at STX told me to string the pocket a bit lower than you normally like.
Now several features from the Surgeon and Stallion 700 have made their way into this new model. The speed scoop which is as good as ever + endura form and channellock all of which are welcome features.
A few sidenotes with stringing – the head has 5 top string holes, the main 4 are big enough for leathers, 15 sidewall holes and 4 well sized bottom string holes
My Ultra Power is strung with semi soft memory mesh and an STX string kit. Mid Low pocket 2 straights and a stacked nylon with a medium amount of whip.
Faceshape wise i’d say it’s almost identical to the stallion 700, so bal control should be average but the head will be really easy to catch with
The head has 2 sidewall struts with a design that seems reversed from the Nike Vapor 2.0, the plastic is nice and thick and the head overall feels pretty rigid, so with regards to durability I think the head will do well in unfavourable weather conditions and temperatures
So that’s gonna be it for the introduction to the STX Ultra Power, stay tuned for more videos featuring this head in the near future and as always thanks for watching.
