    I shopped around for some time, trying out so many different models from so many different brands. When I finally hit with this frame, I knew that I could finally stop shopping. Its just a great all around racket that have plenty of easy power, yet quite good control and feel. I have lent it to a number of others who all have said how easy it was to play with stick... from 3.5 players to 5.0 players And at the price, its an outstanding deal!

    Hyper Hammer!

    I purchased this because, after about 40 years of playing, have had lots of arm issues and was looking for a stick that would give me a bit of pop without having to take a full swing. This stick did the trick. I get more pop on the ball without having to grind down and serves are really good. The generous sweet spot is nice. Volleys are really easy as are overheads. I demo'd the Fed racquet which was nice but way too heavy and my arm ached after using it --- did not have that problem with the Hammer. I think this is a great option for senior players that are looking for more zip and a racquet that is easy on the arm. Price was great too.

    I'm not a club player, just a weekend warrior who plays once a week in the summer with a few guys from the neighborhood. The Hammer is perfect for me. When I get better, I will explore a heavier stick with a smaller head size. Until then, the Hammer stays.

    I am a beginner who wants to start playing more. I had a Wal Mart racquet and it was just not very fun to play. This was so much better. I can swing more and still keep the ball in. It even goes over when I mostly miss! Nice racquet to start with.

    Amazing!

    As many of the other reviewers have said, this racquet is great! I am an older player and I recently switched from the Wilson Sledge Hammer. I loved the Hyper Hammer MUCH more! I have switched almost completely to doubles these days, and this racquet has been a great improvement for my net game. I have found that I am able to poach more with this and my volleys are crisp and well placed. The large sweet spot is perfect for me because at my age I need something that won’t require as much effort in swinging through the ball. This new hammer gives me more power and is lighter than the older Hammer. The frame is easy to swing and is very maneuverable on the court. Overall it is a very generous frame and I am extremely satisfied! I strung this racquet with Wilson Sensation at mid tension.

    Love this racquet!

    I am a 4.0 player who hits with a lot of spin. I also had gotten tennis elbow before I had purchased this racquet a few years ago. I was concerned that this model might be too head heavy but it did not aggravate my tennis elbow condition at all. It has a tremendous amount of power and is very light weight. I demoed 3 oversized racquets along with this one and the choice was very easy for me to make.

    Used a heavier Wilson for years but getting older, needed a change. Like the reviews indicated, the much lighter Hammer has improved my serve and volley game. More control on ground strokes but lost a little power.

    Need for a larger sweet spot

    I'm a 3.5 senior (80) playing doubles and found that I needed a larger racquet head to compensate for eyesight and age. I used a Wilson Hammer years ago before switching to a Head for lightness. The Wilson Hyper Hammer gives me a little more power and larger sweet spot and is lighter than the old Hammer. I am still adjusting to making drop shots and controlling the additional power but I like the racquet a lot.

    Great

    A friend has 2 of these and recommended it. I tried hers and ordered it. I received it quickly and it has improved my game as the ball comes off this racquet much quicker then my 8 year old Head .
