This lighter weight version of the RQ iS Tour 1 offers improved maneuverability. The same spin friendly response as we found in the heavier version is taken up a level here. With its lighter weight, players will find easier access to the faster swing speeds required to generate heavy spin. The flexible and comfortable response is slightly down on power making this a good choice for players with long swings and developed technique. At net the racquet feels very maneuverable with lots of feel on volleys. As from the baseline, our TW testers found easy access to pace and spin on serve thanks to the racquet's maneuverable feel. The light weight also makes this an excellent platform racquet for players who like to customize the weight and balance of their racquets with lead tape. Best suited to 4.0+ level players.
