The Tour 98 replaces the popular EXO3 Rebel 98, a spin-friendly player's racquet well suited to intermediate through advanced players. This update retains the EXO3 Ports which create a uniquely forgiving and lively stringbed. Big hitters should be able to install their favorite firm poly without having to worry about losing the sweetspot. From the baseline our TW playtesters found that full strokes were rewarded with a heavy combination of pace and spin. At net this racquet's forgiving stringbed delivers a lively and stable platform for blocking the ball back or punching it deep. As for serves, the Tour 98 offers decent pace and plenty of spin for those who like to hit big kickers or nasty slices. All in all, this is a great option for 4.0+ players looking for a great mix of comfort, stability, power and spin.
