The Tour 100 16x18 updates the EXO3 Tour 16x18 with a sleek cosmetic. Like its predecessor, this one features EXO3 Ports which deliver a uniquely comfortable and lively feel on impact. This racquet also comes with a fairly high degree of flexibility, a fact that solidifies it as one of the most arm-friendly options in its class. From the baseline this one blends decent power with a soft and muted feel. The high comfort level should allow intermediate and advanced players to use a firm poly or higher tensions to boost control. The grippy 16x18 string pattern and high dwell time supply more than enough spin potential to bring the ball down effectively. At net this one feels comfortably solid with a fast response and plenty of put-away power. Doubles specialists and all-court singles players will have all the ingredients needed to attack the ball and finish points. On serve the fast feel and lively response translates into good pace and heavy action slices. This update keeps a good thing going. Best suited to 4.0+ players looking for a comfortable player's stick that rewards fast strokes with penetrating depth and good spin.
