And there are of course many string reviews on the website to read if you are looking for a good string setup.
But for now, let’s focus on the most exciting racquets available right now. Let’s aim at racquets that can suit a wider demographic and player level.
The HEAD Speed MP Auxetic
The HEAD Speed MP is HEAD’s bestseller. Why? It brings a beautiful blend of qualities such as control, comfort, power, and spin, without any metric being extreme. It is also not a difficult racquet to use with a good-sized head size and a string pattern giving the player some forgiveness. Overall, it’s not hard to understand why this racquet is so popular and suits such a wide player demographic.
Yonex Ezone 100
The Yonex Ezone series is all about ease of use. Easy power, decent comfort, some spin but still control on flatter shots. This is our favorite power racquet right now and it does most things well. The Isometric head shape of Yonex racquets allows for more forgiveness but can detract some racquet traditionalists. If you want more control, you should check out the Yonex Percept 100 Review.
Babolat Pure Aero
This is an icon in the game, made an icon by an icon. The icon is Rafael Nadal and he now endorses the Pure Aero Rafa series. However, we prefer the regular Babolat Pure Aero, which offers good spin potential, despite the denser string pattern of this generation. Like the racquets above, it does most things well. Spin, power, decent comfort, and a fast feel.
Wilson Shift 99
This is a new line from Wilson and has impressed tennis racquet reviewers worldwide. It combines good spin generation with a slightly tighter 16×20 string pattern (compared to most similar racquets) and offers an excellent feel on impact. Overall, a very solid and likable racquet.
If you struggle with tennis elbow and want to try the best-in-class technology (using multifilament strings is also advised until you get rid of the problem) you should consider the ProKennex Ki 5, which is an arm-friendly racquet offering easy playability and power.
I hope you enjoy the list. Let me know what your racquet is and if you can recommend it to other players!
