It's a Wilson, and it feels and plays like other similar Wilson racquets at half this price. So it makes you wonder why pay that price. I tried this with a similar or comparable racquet from Babolat and that one feels more solid on contact. This Wilson Pro Open just doesn't have that super solid feel when you try to rip a good forehand. It could be that it's sweet spot is not as big? Is this a good racquet - yes. Would I prefer a different racquet - unfortunately no.
