HC2 stands for "Hot Core, 2 cylinders". HC2 incorporates PK's Core 1 technology using a balsa wood center box surrounded by dual cylinders, making it ultra-stiff (the stiffest racquet in PK's line to date) without compromising feel and eliminating shock and vibration.
When you strike a ball with a Core1 racquet each of the independent graphite cylinders creates a separate, opposing shock wave. When the two opposing shock waves meet at the wood spine they counteract and cancel out each other, eliminating the harsh negative impact shock and vibration. The wood spine then transmits only the remaining clean, responsive, organic feel in your hand. It's lightweight power with feel.
The Result: The player feels the ball on the strings because much of the disruptive initial shock is eliminated while the wood shapes the vibrations into information a player can use.
Benefits: Better feel of the ball on the strings, more focused energy transfer, better control, easier on the body.
