I just purchased one of these and had it strung up with NXT and 4G strung low at 52 and 50 lbs tocompensate for the stiffness. I'm coming from a Pretige so I expected to really feel the stiffness on the Burn 95, but to my pleasant surprise I didn't. The racquet is firm, but not too harsh. The racket pockets well and has great control, but of center shots pay he price. The balance makes for a very whippy frame with great net play. Rewarding players frame.

Took a chance downsizing to the 95 square inch frame & it really paid off. I am a 4.5 level player, been playing the game for over 15 years. When out on the court, I tend to play a control oriented game and have played with previous generations of Wilson racquets. When I took this racquet out for a spin, I really enjoyed the new octagon shape in frame. As advertised, the frame shape did help in terms of the weight distribution when swinging this hefty racquet. At 12 ounces strung, I thought that I would get fatigued due to the weight but I am actually able to get the head through a tad bit quicker due to the design. The 16x19 string pattern helps me produce much more spin than some of the 18x20 frame’s I’ve used in the past. Very stable at the net. All in all, good mixture of control, power and spin. 5 stars!

Likes: Weighted near 12 oz. yet easy too swing. Good sized sweet spot for mid size. Good power with reasonable control. Reasonably arm friendly. Nice matte paint. Nice handle grip. Aerodynamic. Feels like an arm-friendly Yonex Si with bigger sweet spot.
Dislikes: Needs to be strung on lower end of tension range. High cost at $219 unstrung. The carbon fiber is more of a gimmick than an actual technology advancement.
