Wilson Ultra Pro V4

The Wilson Ultra Pro V4 is available on the Wilson official website. At the moment only in Australia, but I’m sure they will add locations soon.

Wilson Ultra Pro V4

There is no question that the Wilson Ultra Pro V4 will captivate tennis nerds with its blue-to-purple color shifting, its traditional 20.6 mm beam, and the clean yet cool look. This is a control-focused racquet for players with full swings who can generate their own pace on the ball. I don’t think much has changed from the excellent Wilson Ultra Pro V3, which was well-received and reviewed here on Tennisnerd. But in this case, it’s a good thing. The Ultra Pro is a racquet for players who want maximum control and feel, often attributed to more old-school frames without bells and whistles.

You can purchase the Ultra Pro V4 at Wilson’s official website.

Specifications

The Ultra Pro is available in two string patterns, the more control-focused 18×20 and the slightly more spin-oriented and powerful 16×19.

The specs in other aspects are the same.

Cross Section : 20.6 FB

Head Size : 97 sq in / 626 sq cm

Length : 27 in / 68.58 cm

Series : Ultra

String Pattern : 18 x 20

Unstrung Balance : 8 pts HL / 31.5 cm

Unstrung Weight : 10.8 oz / 305 g

Tech

As I said, there is not much tech for the Ultra Pro. This racquet is for advanced players who don’t need help and want lots of feedback when they strike the ball.

This is how Wilson describes the Ultra Pro and its technology.

• Ultra model played by select Tour players
• Thinner beam augments ball dwell time on the string bed for enhanced control
• Uncontaminated design features a modern aesthetic with clean lines, bold color accents, and a smooth gloss finish

Review?

I am pretty sure this is the same racquet with a new cosmetic as the Wilson Ultra Pro V3 that I review here, but I haven’t yet tried the 16×19 version which would be interesting.

I will keep you posted on Instagram and this website, if I manage to get a hold of a new Ultra Pro in 16×19.

Are you excited about this racquet? Have you played previous versions? Let me know in the comments!

  • I had an original Ultra Tour 18x20 which I enjoyed but if I am honest it was a bit above my level on most days.

    If the pictures of the v4 are color accurate this is the most beautiful frame on the market IMHO.

  • Always love that you are keeping up to date with the racquets available out there! I was able to get a hold of the Ultra Pro V4 (16x19). Did it by ordering at Australia and bringing it to the US. I could not find anything different than the V3 I already have besides the paint job. The color looks amazing when it's outside being played. Everyone at the courts I play at loves the looks and keep asking where I got it from, which makes me feel great that I gotten it all the way from Australia. I also love the way 16x19 has a slightly rounder frame than the 18x20 one. It feels like it gives a little more pop and spin, but didn't sacrifice much on the control and feel, if any. I personally put a little weight on the handle and the head (3+9 o'clock) since it felt a little light. But, that didn't change much on the HL balance itself (maybe a little more on the head?) since I like the way it's balanced. I also use multifilament on the crosses and polyester on the main at 53lb and 51lb respectively in case anyone is wondering. I've played with D1 college players and former Challenger/satellite level pros, and they took a look at it and loved the way it looks and plays too

  • Do you think the grommets are the same? Wilson told me the V4 grommets will NOT fit the v3. I suspect Wilson is just wrong. But I haven't seen the V4 in person yet to know.

  • Actually, most of the workers that reply at Wilson website do not understand that you are asking about the Ultra Pro V4 grommets, they think it's regarding the regular Ultra V4. I had to specify and ask about the PRO lab version also since I was looking at the website and it said Ultra Pro V4 grommets. They have confirmed and I can confirm from experience in having been able to replace the grommets that they DO indeed fit. Also, they had a mix up in the website and I had to order 18x20 grommets for 16x19 and vice versa. I am not sure it's still that way tho, I bought the grommets around late October and they have told me they would try to fix that.
