The lightest and fastest feeling of the Prestige line up, this S version provides easier access to spin. Our TW testers were impressed with the blend of stability and maneuverability from this racquet. The precise Prestige feel remains, even if the weight doesn't. At the baseline this racquet feels very fast and easy to swing. Players who like to take a big cut at the ball and hit with a lot of topspin will find some added kick to their shots with this one. The feel from the stringbed is very comfortable and plush. The player feels connected to the ball, promoting confidence during aggressive hitting. At net the blend of stability and maneuverability makes this racquet feel solid, yet surprisingly easy to get into position. A great fit for those seeking a precise feel in a mid weight racquet, this one is a great option for those looking to step up to a Prestige for the first time as well as those who are starting to find the heavier Prestige racquets now too demanding. A versatile racquet that suits many playing styles, this one works best for players 4.0+ NTRP.
