Stringing information for Donnay Formula Lite 100 Racquet: Tension range 40 to 60 pounds, optimum 50 pounds. For best overall performance, we recommend stringing with a synthetic gut, multi-filament or natural gut string.

With its exceptional maneuverability, controlling the Donnay Formula Lite through impact is a cinch. Beginners, juniors, and developing intermediates will appreciate the ease of shot making. The head heavy balance puts weight behind the ball and limits racquet twisting, which is helpful for blocking pace or generating power from the backcourt. At net, the fast feel allows for quick positioning and easy put aways. Extra head speed can be had on serves, where our testers were able to crank up the heat on slices. Best suited to 3.0 - 4.5 level players in search of mobility and comfort.

Dual Core

The Dual-Core racquets have a second layer of Xenecore tubing on the inside of the hoop that futher fortifies the frame and eliminates the loss of energy on ball contact.

XeneCore

XeneCore is a new fiber technology that uses high-pressure solids to form and reinforce the graphite fiber composite to incredible levels of strength that has allowed Donnay designers to reduce the thickness of the racquet beam width to a dramatic 15 millimeters, the thinnest in tennis. The thin beams greatly reduce air resistance (the same reason that sleek sports cars outperform bulky SUVs in wind-tunnel tests) providing unparalleled levels of maneuverability. The high-tensile strength of XeneCore also dampens vibration and provides unexpected power, while reducing the "shadow effect" from the beam blocking a portion of the string bed on off-center hits resulting in "frame shots." The net result of XeneCore technology is a previously unachievable level of all-around performance.
