With the V98 Tour Slazenger delivers speed, power and spin to intermediate and advanced level players. This versatile racquet has all the ingredients needed for aggressive tennis or consistent grinding. At a strung weight of 11.3 ounces there is enough maneuverability to crank up the pace and spin. The higher swingweight (333 RDC) helps steady the racquet at impact while also supplying the mass needed to hit a heavier ball. Factor in the tight 18x20 string pattern and you have the directional control needed for surgical placement. Our TW testers reported a crisp feel from the baseline along with a lively response that was very easily controlled. At net the Aero V98 Tour is not only quick, it offers a great blend of pop and precision. Doubles players will have everything they need to play with finesse or power. We found easy access to pace and spin on serves where slices and kickers came off the stringbed with great action. Best suited to intermediate and advanced players in search of a precise and powerful weapon that performs remarkably well from all areas of the court.
