About BOLT Racquets
The fundamental principles of racquet design haven't changed since the days of wooden racquets. In order to absorb ball impact energy and reduce ball rebound speed, high-tech composite racquets are designed to flex like wood. While a flexible frame can control ball rebound speed and provide degrees of comfort, it's inherently less accurate and less powerful than a stronger, stiffer and more stable frame. Simply put, the selection of a racquet has always required a compromise in the balance of power and control, until now.
BOLT has revolutionized the racquet by shifting control of ball rebound speed away from the frame and into a patented design called a Zipstrip. A Zipstrip is a spring-like string support that absorbs ball impact energy. Instead of the frame flexing to control ball rebound speed, the Zipstrip flexes. It enables every BOLT racquet frame to be solid and stable - designed for precision, accuracy, and control - at any level of power.

US Patent: 6971964
Perfected through years of research, patented Zipstrips are the core engineering innovation of a BOLT racquet. Zipstrips cooperate with the strings at ball impact to improve every aspect of racquet performance.
