Eric Ferrazzi of Ereca France has been in Florida for several days but not just for the sunshine! Eric is spending a lot of time working on diagnostic equipment designs. I have dozens of racquets that can be tested, re-tested, cut, and everything in between so a good sampling of data can be taken on [see more]

Wilson Ultra PWS (retro)

It is not often one of these shows up for work,especially in this super condition! I am not going into a lot of detail but it is interesting to see the specs for this racquet and be able to compare them to the current version.  

Wilson Ultra 108

Not only is this racquet a contraian in terms of graphics it holds on to the well known 16 x 19 string pattern.  The [see more]

Wilson Ultra 103S

This racquet, the Wilson Ultra 103S, offers the “traditionalist” the classic ProStaff cross section geometry but incorporates the “S” (Explosive Spin!) spin friendly open string pattern.  Sort of like a Chevy Nova with 6.2 litre ZO6 power plant!  You have to look really closley to see why you are loosing to it!

Wilson Ultra XP 100LS

Can you guess what the “L” means?  Correct!   A left-handed racquet! Actually, not!  This racquet can be used by any player wanting a slightly lighter (“L”) racquet than the Ultra XP 100S but with the open 16×15 pattern. Typical of the Ultra XP series this racquet is great to look at!  The pick-up feel [see more]
