I love this racket, strings are critical to the performance of this racket. Luxilon 4 GS is the only string I've found that plays well and gives you durability. This combo of racket and string is lethal !
strings break fast. Recommended Lux 4G, while more durable, is way too stiff and can hurt your arm. Wilson should have pointed out the limitations as part of their specs
It goes through strings fast. Sensation, Addiction, and now poly verticals with Addiction cross have lasted at most 10 hours of play. I am a 3.5-4.0 player who hits flat but is trying to develop more topspin. Disappointed at the wear...
I have played about 14 matches with only 1 loss since I bought this. I love the power and the spin. It has done wonders for my game. I just wish it was the same weight as the 99s.
Bought one after trying the demo. Played for the first time today.....I love it. Strung with 4GS @ 64 lbs. Lots of spin and slice, easy to kick serves, solid volleys. This is definitely a stick that will improve my game!
I purchased this racquet on the advice of the tennis techie who was working at the shop. He said this racquet would improve my game and I bought it on a whim. I'm an intermediate player with hard and fast shots that often go out or don't hit the spot that I am aiming. I still do all of that but it feels better in my hand and maybe I even make a few breathtaking shots!!!!
