The Warrior 100 ESP is a great option for the intermediate player who wants a maneuverable racquet that grips the ball very effectively before snapping it out of the string bed with impressive precision. It's also not a bad option for the advanced player who wants a light and fast feeling stick. Like the Volkl V1 Classic, this is one of those user-friendly racquets that plays well from the very first hit. Featuring Prince's Extreme String Pattern (14x16), this Warrior comes preloaded with some serious spin potential. The result is a ball that comes down sharply and explodes off the court. From the baseline our TW playtesters noted a comfortable response with very impressive control on full swings, especially when applying spin. At net, the Warrior 100 ESP errs on the side of maneuverability, with a fast feel that is perfectly suited to reaction volleys or finishing points. There's also some very easy stroke speed to be had on serves which translates nicely into spin and placement (if not huge power). All in all, we think this a solid choice for intermediates in need of a speedy and comfortable racquet that delivers a precise response with as much spin as the situation demands. Advanced players can also join the party as they will find plenty of room to customize this stick for the heaviest exchanges.
