The very popular and already considered to be classic JOOLA Rosskopf Emotion served as basis for the development of the Rosskopf Emotion PBO-c. Jörg Rosskopf, JOOLA legend and national men’s coach, again was involved in the product development. Especially when working out smallest nuances, the experience and enormous knowledge of materials were a decisive factor on the way to the final product.
The 7-ply Rosskopf Emotion PBO-c is fitted with the very popular JOOLA premium synthetic fibre PBO-c, directly positioned on the inner layer. Compared to the classic Rossi Emotion, the PBO-c veneer, for the first time located on the inside, provides significantly more speed and dynamic at highest precision. The high-quality Hinoki outer veneers combine fantastic touch with a considerably prolonged ball contact time.
The interplay of the inner PBO-c fibres and the Hinoki outer veneers the Emotion PBO-c obtains a completely new playing feel: maximum energy transfer from the inside and extraordinary controlled touch from the outside of the blade.
Using high-quality materials, elaborate design and excellent workmanship make the Rossi Emotion PBO-c an exciting experience.
... on the development of blade production in recent years:
In the past you played mostly with the so-called solid wood bats. Specific techno-logies were less important here. Today, manufacturers are much more meticulous about innovation in terms of development. Blades are not just „play equipment“, they are an expression of individuality and can therefore also be seen as a „state-ment“. Especially in terms of technology & design, the expectations of today‘s TT players have increased immensely.
... on the major innovations in the technology sector:
After developing the blade classic Rossi Emotion, I was involved in the creation of the latest premium blade, the Rossi Emotion PBO-c. Crucial in-novation of this blade is the processing of high-quality PBO fibre inter-woven with carbon fibres (PBO-c). In some tests we have found that this PBO-c compound leads to a softer touch feeling with maximum dynamics. many JOOLA players are excited about the new technology. Daniel habe-sohn (Energon Super PBO-c) and Petrissa Solja (Nobilis PBO-C) have al-ready achieved great success with their new blades in the recent past.
... on the difference between the classic Emotion and the new Emotion PBo-c:
The aim of the development was to design an offensive blade from the be-ginning, which is basically based on the popular Rossi Emotion veneer com-position. Due to my work as a national coach and the constant exchange with players, I was able to determine early on with the introduction of the plastic ball that the new ball led to a reduction in speed and rotation. So my approach to developing the Rossi Emotion PBO-C was to compensate for this disadvantage. Two main factors are leading the way in this direction: The extremely dynamic PBO-c fibre and the use of thick, very high-quality, soft kiso hinoki exterior veneers.
