Intermediate players who are looking for a racquet with solid all-around performance should take a closer look at the YOUTEK Speed Elite. This one offers enough added zip off groundstrokes and mid-court shots to help put the point away, but maintains control with easy access to spin. The new d3o material placed in the frame's shaft is designed to react to each shot. This d3o is "smart" and softens the feel when touch is desired and stiffens up when more power is needed. Our TW playtesters found a solid feel from all areas of the court, offering plenty of power for some baseline bashing and lots of mobility up at net. We found the mobile feel lent itself to easy access to faster swing speeds, making topspin easy to generate. Our testers found plenty of consistency and control through spin. Overall, the Speed Elite is an impressive, solid hit and well worth a demo for 3.5+ NTRP players or juniors transitioning into an adult frame.
Note: This racquet does not come with a head cover
