The Belgian tennis manufacturer Snauwaert is back in business with new racquets, strings and balls and I’m ready to take both the Grinta 98 and the Vitas 100 tennis racquets to the court in a play-test. I will also be testing their strings, Black Beam, White Beam and Sunny Core to see if their products offer the same quality they did back in the 60s, when they were quite popular among professional players and had Mikael Pernfors, Vital Gerulaitis, and Brian Gottfried as sponsored pros.
This is how Snauwaert explains it in their press release:
Today we are bringing the legendary Snauwaert brand back to Belgium. No wooden rackets this time, but high quality carbon frames with the newest technologies. After 3 years of experimenting, developing and testing, Snauwaert can present 4 unique tennis frames with 2 different weights to conquer the world once again. In combination with ITF approved premium balls and 3 strings that cover every tennis player profile, Snauwaert brings a whole new product line.
Snauwaert will have Xavier Malisse as their brand ambassador and Alison Van Uytvanck, (former 1?4 finalist at the French Open 2015), will be playing with the new Grinta 100 Snauwaert racket!
I will keep my dear TennisNerd readers posted on how these racquets and strings perform. Here are a few more pics:
