For the intermediate through advanced level player, the X-Red 99 from Donnay offers tremendous performance. Exceptional feel connects the player to the ball for ultimate control on every shot. An aggressive swing results in excellent access to spin. Our TW testers found they could control depth and direction of groundstrokes with ease. Perhaps the most impressive characteristic is the amount of feel that is offered from such a comfortable racquet. A healthy sweetspot and a smooth response inspire confidence, allowing the player to swing freely. At net, the racquet feels maneuverable thanks to its head light balance, yet remains surprisingly solid even during heavy hitting. Again, this racquet is all about feel and control. Our testers found it easy to both punch volleys deep as well as find their targets on touch volleys. There is ample mass for hitting big, penetrating serves. A high level of bite from the stringbed means kickers kick to new heights and control if further increased. All in all, a very impressive racquet that offers a high level of feel and performance for players with developed technique.
