Wilson Ultra 100 CV V2.0

The V2.0 is the second generation of the Ultra 100. Our model came in with a static weight of 10.97 ounces (strung) and is a racquet that I believe would work well for intermediates players. Wilson's Countervail technology enhances the overall comfort of this frame and is a nice addition. There's a structural reinforcement in the shaft (called Power Rib) that enhances power and control. That technology also features Crush Zone grommets in the throat, which compress at impact for added dwell time, comfort and power. This is a great racquet for the pure baseline hog with a nice weight of nearly 11 ounces that should give the accomplished player plenty of power. The frame has a nice headlight balance at nearly 4.5 points HL, so if you prefer to approach you should feel quite comfortable at net.  This is a great choice that could find a huge audience with intermediate to advanced players.
