Head Graphene 360 Speed Pro

Head is introducing their new Speed Series, and it is coming with some significant changes! The most obvious and dramatic is the move toward a minimalist “look.”  The graphics consist of black and white!  Gone are the days of multi-colored Speed racquets. As with many Head racquets, the graphics mimic the “SkiTip” angle as seen with [see more]

Wilson Burn 100 CV V2.0

I’ll admit that I’m going to be just a little bit biased on this review because this is my personal racquet of choice. I was previously using a 113 oversize Donnay frame that was quite comfortable but I just felt more comfortable with this Burn on my ground strokes. This updated version of the Burn [see more]

Wilson Ultra 110 V2.0

Rounding out the IART reviews of the Wilson Ultra line takes us to the Ultra 110 V2.0. What’s great about this oversize frame is that it’s nearly perfectly balanced at 13.58 in which is quite nice for an oversize frame like this Ultra. At 9.98 ounces strung and with that balance this racquet is quite maneuverable [see more]

Wilson Ultra 105S

Of the 6 Ultra frames from Wilson starting with the Ultra Tour and moving through 3 other base models with 100 square inch head sizes, we now we get into new territory with the 105S. This is a design that delivers additional potential for spin with a 16×15 stringing pattern and an added few extra [see more]

Wilson Ultra 100UL

There are a total of 6 frames in the new Wilson Ultra line and this one is the lightest. Our racquet weighed in at 9.63 oz (273g) making this a good candidate for beginners as well as juniors transitioning to a full length adult frame. This model also comes with Wilson’s Uncontaminated Design, which means it [see more]

Wilson Ultra 100L V2.0

The Ultra series is a unique collection of frames for the intermediate to advanced player. Starting with the base model, the Ultra 100 V2.0 that weighs 311g (10.97 oz), the Ultra 100L V2.0 reduces the base model down to 287g (10.12 oz) but maintains the balance at just over 4pts HL. However, the UL version [see more]

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 [see more]

Wilson Ultra Tour V2.0

The current Wilson line offers 6 models of their newly redesigned Ultra series frames with the Tour model definitely geared for advanced players. It starts with an 18×20 string pattern coupled with a nice narrow 21mm beam width. Our model tested out with a 6.90 HL balance and weighed a hefty 11.29 oz strung. Let’s [see more]

Yonex VCore Pro 97 – 330

Finally, we get to the VCore Pro 97 -330 which you can probably guess is the “playerest” of the new Yonex VCore Pro Series. This is one of those racquets you can just pick up and play!  No need to fuss around with weight, swing weight, and other stuff.  Just play. As noted before every [see more]

Yonex VCore Pro 97 – 310

Yonex continues their tiered performance racquet concept with the VCore Pro Series.  In this case, there is the VCore Pro 97 – 330, the VCore Pro 97 – 310, and the VCore Pro 100 – 300.  For racquets that look the same they each feel substantially different in a right way, I think!
