Fast, stable, and comfortable, the Boris Becker NYC has an ideal blend of power and precision. Our testers discovered an even response from the stringbed, noting very little shock on off center hits. Given the low swingweight (304 RDC) and head light balance, big hitters will be able to whip this frame powerfully through the hitting zone. The mobility helps at net where our testers found it very easy to position the frame and execute a penetrating response. The open pattern provides extra pop and bite on slice and kick serves. Well suited to the aggressive singles or doubles player who want easy power and spin in a very maneuverable and comfortable package.
