A solid option for the 4.0+ level player, the Slazenger V100 Tour offers good control in a light and lively package. This fast swinging racquet is ideal for those looking to impose their will with power and spin. The firm response delivers excellent feedback so the player feels more plugged into the shot. Those who like to hit topspin will appreciate how swiftly this one whips through contact. They will also appreciate the 71 flex (RA) and open 16x19 string pattern which supply an optimally firm stringbed loaded with bite. Needless to say, from the baseline our TW playtesters found it very easy to shape the lively response with spin. At net the fast feel lends itself to quick reactions; and there is just enough mass to effectively redirect most levels of pace. The extra spin and pop available from the baseline are also there on serves where we found this one to whip very powerfully through contact. All in all this is a great option for the intermediate player in search of a responsive all-court weapon. It's also a solid choice for the advanced player who wants impressive precision and easy access to power without having to sacrifice maneuverability.
