Tennis Racquet Review: Babolat Aero Pro Lite

February 18th, 2013 by Greg C

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

The Babolat Aero Pro Lite is updated for 2013 with a new logo, graphics, and a physical design that creates an even quicker stroke. Continuing with Babolat’s high-visibility graphics and black/white/yellow scheme, the Babolat Aero Pro Lite is an attractive racquet.  One benefit that I like is the fact that as the racquet ages it’s rather busy design helps conceal “battle scars.”

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 98 (18 x 20)

February 11th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

After hitting with the new Wilson Blade 93 tennis racquet, I was understandably excited to hit with some of the other new frames in the Wilson line. I was thinking that the Blade 98 would be a nice frame for less experienced players. I cannot even begin to state how misplaced that youthful optimism was.

The new Volkl Organix 7 has two versions:  295g and 310g.  This play-test is with the 295g (labeled 10.4 oz) and is intended to be the choice of players who desire a medium-weight racquet that offers some power without any sacrifice of control.  It is a “tweener” racquet (between game improvement and a true “player’s” racquet).

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 93

January 28th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

For a long time now I have been off Wilson racquets. They have always made the best frames in my mind, in a historical sense, but the last few years a lot of their ‘player’ frames felt clunky and unwieldy. This was true even for someone who had played with Wilson racquets for much of his life and was therefore predisposed to give a new Wilson offering a favorable look.

Tennis Racquet Review: Dunlop Biomimetic MAX 200G

September 17th, 2012 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

They should just call this racquet the Dunlop John McEnroe model and be done with it. The simple reality of the thing is that only a gifted player with genius hands and feet is going to be able to maximize the design and features of this racquet. In my humble certainty; there is a very small main market for this racquet. I am sure that with that start, all will be surprised that, this is basically a rave review coming up.

Makin’ a Racket About My Tennis Racquet

September 10th, 2012 by Dee Adams

When I was a novice player taking lessons in college, my first racquet was actually a gift. Let me rephrase that; it was more of a hand-me-down. But hey, I thought it was so cool, my first tennis racquet. That was in 1998 and they have come a long way, even since then. I still have that ol’ thing and have used it as a benchmark when reviewing or shopping for others up until the latest and greatest left my little guy in the dust.

Volkl Tennis Racquets, Known as the the Tennis Elbow Racquets for Good Reason

August 15th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

Volkl tennis racquets feature some of the most advanced technology in tennis today, as well as a line of racquets that that covers all skill levels and other preferences.  Volkl’s have always been known as the “tennis elbow” racquets, because of their prevention in arm injuries due to technology that softens and dampens shock, vibration, and other feedback.  It begins with their DNX technology, which is a super-light as well as extremely strong carbon fiber material that you can find in all of their current racquets.  These fibers are created to withstand maximum force applied at all angles, giving every shot the same feel.  Having this feature in a tennis racquet means you’ll have a consistent touch with every shot, allowing your game to groove to whatever shots you’re hitting.  The DNX technology has recently been improved on, leading us to the current generation of racquets, the Volkl Organix line.

If you ask any player what their racquet brand of choice is, whether a pro or a beginner or weekend warrior, the odds are they will say Babolat. The competition isn’t very close, because Babolat currently produces the two best selling racquets on the market, which are the two racquets I will be focusing on for this article. The Babolat Pure Drive and the Babolat Aeropro Drive are incredibly balanced racquets, providing excellent control, power, maneuverability, and feel. Whether you prefer to play from ...

A Player’s Look at Dunlop Biomimetic Tennis Racquets

July 25th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

Anyone that knows Dunlop knows that the company has a history of producing technologically superior racquets for decades, and their newest line of racquets is no different. The Biomimetic series is their current line, and if you break down the word Biomimetic, then you`ll see the “bio” refers to things found in the natural world and “mimetic” is another way of saying mimic, so essentially, these racquets take the form of things found in nature…...
