Crisp, lively and very spin friendly, this update to the Juice 100 is well suited to the explosive mechanics of the modern power game. At a speedy 11.3 ounces, the Juice 100 gives a wide range of intermediate and advanced players the mobility to swing big and multiply the power inherent in this racquet's wide and stiff beam. Not only does this one give aggressive baseliners the ability to hit a heavy spin-loaded ball, it also allows grinders and counter punchers to keep the ball consistently deep. New to this version is Wilson's Parallel Drilling technology which reduces the friction between string and frame in key locations to make this admittedly firm stringbed a tad more comfortable. To reduce some of the harsher, off-center vibrations, Wilson upgrades the handle system to Amplifeel 360. From the baseline our TW playtesters reported very easy access to spin along with enough power for landing knock-out blows. At net this agile racquet comes loaded with put-away power along with slightly more solid feel than its predecessor. Advanced players looking for the genuine stability will find plenty of room for customization. As for serving, this, this one has enough power and spin to create some very weak returns. All in all this update to the Juice legend keeps the explosiveness of the previous version while also continuing to bestow big gifts to the those who can control the pop with spin.
