The Tempest has a patented Gripper Pro pocket and a radical sidewall design for improved ball control and enhanced pocket shape. Lower sidewall design with raised sidewall stringing holes creates a a deeper pocket. An improved ground attack angle on the the scoop offers better ground ball pick up. Flattened scoop increased the scoop-to-ground contact surface so you have a larger surface for ground pick up. Knotless shooting string adjusters allow for easy shooting string adjustment without tying knots. Lower curved ball stop lets the pocket wrap around the ball for increased retention and control. Runner Shock lessens pocket rebound for improved catching. 6.5 degree raised ball strop improves control, retention and catching.
