Upcoming Racquet Reviews

by Jonas Eriksson

I wanted to give you an update on upcoming racquet reviews. There are many racquets in line here at the Tennisnerd HQ :)

So there are a bunch of sticks on the list of upcoming racquet reviews. Exciting stuff! If you want to read the reviews or first impressions before anyone else, please consider becoming a Tennisnerd patron.

Thanks to my new affiliate buddy All Things Tennis, I have finally managed to get a Babolat Pure Strike Tour and a Mantis Pro 310 III for testing. We have set up a deal where you can get 5% off and a free stringing if you use the code TENNISNERD.

Upcoming Racquet Reviews on Tennisnerd

The list is growing quite long, but I am obviously enjoying it. Let us look at what is coming.

HEAD Radical OS Ltd A.A edition – Agassi’s old racquet was re-released some time ago and I am really enjoying hitting with it, despite the fact that it has been around for 25+ years.

Diadem Nova – If you follow my Patreon page, you might have seen my first impressions review of this racquet. Perhaps the most impressive Pure Drive-like racquet released in a long time. So easy to use.

Babolat Pure Strike Tour – Long overdue and seems like a lot of racquet to swing. But many people are really enjoying this stick.

Prince Phantom 100X racquets – I have been testing both the 320g 18×20 version and the 305g 16×18 version. I do like them both, but there are some clear differences. I will create a joint video review about this one.

Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph customized by RingRoll – Racquet magicians RingRoll in Germany have created a lighter, custom RF97A with a TK82S pallet for me, and it really is easier to use than the retail version.

Diadem Elevate Tour – A proper tour racquet with 315g weight and 98 sq inch head size. This stick is foam-filled and solid!

HEAD Graphene 360+ Speed MP – I really liked the Pro version of this one, but the swing weight might be a bit high for many, so the easier to use Midplus version should be an interesting test.

Which review are you most excited about? Please let me know in the comments below.

Nice menu, but it’s the Pure Strike Tour for me :)

Broke the last of my trusted DR 98s last month, and the new model lacks the plow, control and stability I was hoping for. So I’m very much looking forward to the in-depth review of the Nova (does that foam cancel out the daunting RA?) and the Speed MP (with increased swingweight), as I need a new racquet quick and these two are on my shortlist. Playtested the new Ezone (feels flimsy, even with lead tape), the Dunlop SX300 Tour (closest to the DR, but a bit unwieldy and tough on the elbow after longer sessions), the Clash 98 (nice innovation, but the flex is too pronounced, giving it a toy-like quality), the Gravity Tour (lovely frame, but none of the DR’s addictive power), and the new Speed Pro (which I liked very much, even though I’m getting too old for 18x20s). Tack för råd, Jonas!
