Wilson updates the feel of one of their most solid spin machines. It’s called the Burn 100 S Countervail and it is ideal for the aggressive player looking to dominate the court with pace and spin. Compared to its predecessor this update offers an increase in flexibility as well as a more head light balance (see comfort and speed). Boasting an 18x16 Spin Effect string pattern, the Burn 100 S puts a tight grip on the ball, resulting in easier access to spin. There’s also some welcomed vibration dampening thanks to the introduction of Countervail - a material technology designed to soften the effects of ball impact and counter muscle fatigue. From the baseline this racquet is slightly easier on the arm than its predecessor. Although the 11.2 ounce weight is manageable for intermediates, the 325 swingweight gives it enough plow through for the more advanced player. The upshot is a racquet that rewards big strokes with a powerful, spin loaded ball that hops off the court. Players with two-handed backhands will appreciate the X2 Shaft, which provides a longer grip for more leverage. On serve the combination of spin, precision and pop will give you the ability to force some very weak replies. With a nice boost in comfort and maneuverability  Wilson has produced an impressive weapon for intermediate and advanced ball strikers. 

*This racquet is compatible with the Sony Smart Tennis Sensor.

Sony Sensor Technology

Spin Effect Technology (S.E.T.)
Using fewer cross strings than main strings, this technology allows the main strings to deflect more for maximum snapback. The result is massive spin punctuated by balls that dive very sharply. This is the first racquet system that actually increases ball RPM without players needing to radically change their swing speed.
