This light, maneuverable racquet offers plenty of forgiveness with its 102 square inch headsize. There's plenty of power to be had while a headlight balance adds to the feel. The 16/19 string pattern offers good access to spin. The weight of this stick provides an ease of swing from both forehand and backhand sides when hitting groundstrokes. Our testers found the Raptor to respond especially well to higher swing speeds, tending to impart greater ball bite and spin. The large stringbed and high mobility help when at net, making volleys crisp and sharp. In stock form, the Raptor is a great choice for players seeking a lighter racquet that still offers good feel and control. Stronger players will find room for modification to their desire. Recommended for players at the 3.5-4.5 level looking for a light and maneuverable racquet.
Racquet comes with free set of Pacific Power Line 16L gauge. If you would like this to be strung in your racquet, please choose this string in the String Choices Menu on the next page. If you choose another string, the Pacific Power Line will be sent to you in its packaging.
