In the line of Donnay racquets, the X-Dual Core Gold 99 offers a similar spec to the X-Red 99 but brings a tad more power and solidness to every shot. This is a perfect choice for the intermediate through advanced level player seeking just enough help to add pace and court penetration to shots without sacrificing the precision necessary to compete at the highest level. Compared with the X-Red 99 we noticed a little more kick on topspin groundstrokes and serves with this racquet. At net the racquet offers a pleasingly crisp and precise response. There is an excellent connection between player and ball with this racquet, plus some useful pop to help punch the ball away. The thin beam, head light balance and manageable weight make this a fast feeling racquet in the hands of a skilled player. Access to spin is generous, and pace is impressive. As its name suggests, we feel this one is the golden choice from the Donnay racquet line-up.
