The manueverability of the Solinco Protocol 285 makes it a treat to swing from the baseline, especially for the strong beginner or intermediate player who doesn't want the burden of weight when going for more power and spin. On groundstrokes, the crisp and predictable response of the Protocol 285 is perfectly suited to clean contact and confident stroke production. Thanks to the lively 16x19 pattern and the stiff beam, power is definitely there when needed. On serves the Protocol 285 whips nicely through contact, providing some extra heat on slices and kickers. Finally, maneuverability shines on service returns where we found it easy to execute an effective response under pressure. While this is definitely a great option for the 3.5 - 4.5 player looking for easy access to power and spin, advanced players will have plenty of room to add weight in order to make it battle-worthy against heavy pace. All in all, this is a good option for anyone who wants a light and speedy racquet that performs well from all areas of the court.
