What Play Testers Are Saying About the Wilson Burn FST 95 & 99

The Wilson Burn FST is a low powered tennis racquet that is intended for big-hitters who have plenty of power behind their swing. While this racquet has great balance and feels good in the hand, it doesn’t generate much of its own power. It is being recommended as being easy on the arm with little noticeable vibration.

One play tester mentioned that the Burn FST 95 reminds him of the newer Yonex frames. So, if you play with a Yonex, this might be a great option for you.

While the large handle may be uncomfortable for some, and will take an adjustment period for others, one of the only racquets available on the market today that is optimized for the two-handed backhand. If that’s your backhand approach, this is the racquet for you.

For those who pay attention to the little details, Peter Fig, lead graphic designer at Wilson Sports, designed the graphics on the Burn FST racquets. When you get your hands on one of these sticks, take a close look between 3 and 9.
