A solid playing racquet with a generous 102 square inch midplus headsize, this one rewards with a blend of comfort, power, feel and spin. From the baseline this racquet provides impressive stability considering it light and mobile feel. Finding either topspin or slice is easy thanks to the open string pattern and the easy access to fast racquet head speed. We found a high level of control with excellent feel on angles and drop shots. At net the comfort of this racquet continued to impress. Both touch and feel from the racquet are excellent with enough power to get the ball away on punch volleys. On serves this one offers ample power for hard, flat first serves. The spin-friendly response provides some nice kick and action on spin serves. This is a great option for 4.0+ players seeking great playability from all areas of the court.

Dual Core

The Dual-Core racquets have a second layer of Xenecore tubing on the inside of the hoop that futher fortifies the frame and eliminates the loss of energy on ball contact.

XeneCore

XeneCore is a new fiber technology that uses high-pressure solids to form and reinforce the graphite fiber composite to incredible levels of strength that has allowed Donnay designers to reduce the thickness of the racquet beam width to a dramatic 15 millimeters, the thinnest in tennis. The thin beams greatly reduce air resistance (the same reason that sleek sports cars outperform bulky SUVs in wind-tunnel tests) providing unparalleled levels of maneuverability. The high-tensile strength of XeneCore also dampens vibration and provides unexpected power, while reducing the "shadow effect" from the beam blocking a portion of the string bed on off-center hits resulting in "frame shots." The net result of XeneCore technology is a previously unachievable level of all-around performance.
Customized Weighting Technology System Kit

The Donnay customization kit that is sold separately allows users the option to adjust the weights and balances exactly to their liking to any Donnay racquet. There are three interchangeable buttcaps weighing two, seven and 12 grams, along with weighted slides that can be easily applied to the sides and top of the frame in the blink of a changeover. The combination of the slides and lightest buttcap tips the balance more to the head for more power; no slides and the heaviest buttcap increase control and further enhance maneuverability. There are 10 combinations in between.
