Beginning to intermediate level players looking for forgiveness can find it without sacrificing power. Babolat's new Xtra Sweetspot technology provides a larger sweetspot with strategically placed Pebax plastic at 3 and 9 o'clock in the frame. This helps off-center hits maintain power and stay on line. At under 10 ounces strung, our testers found the XS easy to create racquet head speed from the baseline as well as serving, while being extremely maneuverable at net. The 105 square inch head offers a tremendous sweetspot, helping consistency from all areas of the court. The open string pattern provides good access to spin while providing plenty of pop. The Babolat XS 105 is a good option for the 3.0 to 4.5 level player, or the junior looking to make the transition to standard length racquets.

Note: Although Babolat states a tension range of only 50-55lbs for this racquet, we have confirmed that our range of 50-60lbs is perfectly suitable.
