A solid playing player's racquet, the Donnay Pro One 97 offers a crisp and clean response much like the original. Control is excellent from all areas of the court. With improvements in maneuverability and comfort, this new Pro One feels faster and more forgiving. From the baseline this racquet provides easy access to pace. The 327 swingweight (RDC) puts ample mass behind the ball yet maneuverability is not sacrificed thanks to a light 11.5-ounce strung weight and 4 points head light balance. Easy access to fast swing speeds results in solid pace and spin. At net the racquet impresses with a high level of precision and excellent feel. On serve our TW testers found it easy to snap the racquet through contact for lots of pace and spin. The control-oriented response allows aggressive serving without a loss in consistency. A very impressive racquet, this one makes a great choice for the 4.0+ level player.

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.
