I have a few remaining reviews before I present my thoughts on the best racquets of 2020. The Wilson Blade Pro, the Blade 102 SW, and more.
The racquet that has generated the most interest among fellow tennis nerds is the Wilson Blade Pro from the Wilson Pro Labs line. Is it the famous H22 pro stock or something else? By all accounts, it is the H22 and that means a quite hefty racquet that is not for the faint of heart. Still, I like the H22, have owned a few of them and I’m keen to try the Blade Pro.
Besides the Blade Pro, I am also looking forward to testing the Serena Williams Autograph racquet, the Blade 102. As a shorter tennis player, I am curious about how the extended length will impact my game. For some, it’s a game-changer, other players find it too difficult to get around efficiently.
Talking about Wilson racquets, I will also review the new Wilson Burn 100 V4. The stiffness of 71 RA strung scares me a bit, especially since I have recently had some minor arm issues. I am therefore more excited to revisit my review of the Clash Tour, which is nowadays called the Clash Pro – around 18 months from my first review. Will I enjoy it as much as I did the first time around? I still believe that the Clash line was the strongest innovation in tennis racquets in a long time.
I always applaud the focus on arm comfort, so the Clash still gets a thumbs up from me, although, like all racquets, it has its pros and cons.
Not only Wilson racquets…
I will also finish my review of the Tenx Xstrike racquets. You can find my first impressions of the Xstrike 100 here. But I also have the heavier, XStrike 315 to test and review. I will create a joint review for these frames.
That should be it. Then I will finish my e-book/booklet about tennis racquets that will be published before the end of the year. It will cover some tennis racquet fundamentals and give you some ideas of the best racquets per category right now.
