Comments: I have been playing tennis casually since I was 17. I have taken several college "advanced" tennis
classes. I am decent at the sport but have never competed in an actual tournament or match. I am now 25. I demoed this
racquet and a Prince Response 97 at the same time. So I loved the power of the RZR 100 T. I normally use the Prince O3
Blue, the original one. I wanted to try a high powered racquet because I struggle to put the point away when it came time
to play against a fast runner who just made sure they got the ball back in play. The racquet weight wasn't a problem for
me. But the thing that took me a while to figure out why I didn't completely love the Gamma RZR 100 T was the smaller
head size and head shape -- the sweet spot of the racquet was actually right next to the base (start) of the head. I like the
sweet spot either in the middle or towards the outside of the head. I took a look at it and it almost looks like the head is
strung upside-down. I also didn't like using this racquet with the stock string tension -- it felt like I was making contact
with a baseball bat. However, when I did hit the ball near the center and base of the head it felt completely normal. The
power and spin that came from hitting here was ridiculous. The ball would be moving so fast with so much spin it would
literally pull my opponents racquet back as the swung and spin off the top of the racquet if they had even the slightest of
an open face. I liked the racquet in many ways. I just don't think I could get used to playing a racquet where the sweet spot
is so small and towards the handle. The power and spin from this racquet made my opponent literally ask me not to do a
flat serve cause they didn't want to get injured for work the next day. I think it would be a better racquet for me if it had a
larger head with a sweet spot further towards the tip of the racquet.

Comments: I got my racquet 3 days ago and have been trying it for 3 days. First of all, this is a very powerful
racquet and it is really hard to adapt to it. The most bothersome issue is serving with this racquet, it is really difficult to
control its power. In fact I'm a good at serves, but still can not get used to serving with it. Attacking with this racquet is
really hard; but defending at the baseline seems to be an advantage due to its power level. Slices are also easier with this
racquet. I give it 3 months for adaptation; if I cannot figure it our, I will continue with my old friends/racquets -- the Ai 100.

Comments: After demoing the 98T, I was really curious about the 100T. Had it strung with a full bed of Tour
strung at 57-58 lbs and just couldn't keep the ball in. Loved the power, but as others have mentioned, shots kept going
Stick with the 98T if you like these frames and want the plowthrough.

Comments: This racquet has the largest sweet zone (>30%) according to TW University that TW current
There are 3 other racquets with larger sweet zones but from what I can tell TW doesn't sell those racquets anymore. The
difference in sweet zone size really makes a huge difference for players like me who don't always hit the ball dead in the
the racquet's string bed. This was especially noticeable as I recently switched from a 2 handed BH into a one handed BH.
those who think the racquet weighs too much, start lifting some weights (e.g. forearm curls)! For those who say the
racquet is too
powerful, simply increase the tension of your strings. For those who say the stiffness of the frame will cause tennis-elbow,
lead tape will alleviate much of this, as it's simple physics. I customized mine so that it now weighs 14.6 oz with 4 layers
tape at 3 and 9 o'clock as well as several layers on the handle and at the top of the handle. Ashaway Kevlar on the mains
Crossfire II's on the cross strings, both at 85 lbs. The stick now is a total beast. Super stable (torsional stability), super
through. The only drawbacks are that due to the extreme stiffness, there is virtually no feedback to my hand or arm. This
purely a matter of preference and personally I only care about where the ball goes, not how the racquet feels. Keep in
ball has already left the stringbed by the time you "feel" the impact of the racquet to your hand.

Comments: The power and spin on this racquet are, frankly, ridiculous. That's not necessarily a good thing.
topspin was great, but the shots went way too deep. There was also absolutely no feel--no sound, either. Serving with it
certifiable nightmare. If someone could produce enough massive spin to get a handle on the excessive power, I could see
point of this, but at face value it seems a little imbalanced. And the stiffness won't be doing you any favors. My friend hit
for five minutes and his hand went numb.

Comments: Extremely open string pattern can produce loads of spin. However, this hinders control. This
seems to maximize power and spin without taking control into consideration. I like it because I tend to have very good
my skill set, so I used the extra power to drive my opponent off the court. It's great if your skills are similar. It's a great
my opinion, but I'd rather use like a real racquet. This thing almost feels like a toy! It's fun, but not ideal for match play.

Comments: I bought this racket without a play test... kinda risky, but
I did it and I am happy I did. This racket is a monster. Lots of
power and with the open string pattern, I gets plenty of topspin to
keep the ball in the court. I have lots of control and no bad
feedback to my arm. It is very solid, and I have no problem swinging
the weight. On serve it is very powerful, great for flat serves and I
can get plenty spin on my kick serve. At the net, just put the racquet
in front of the ball and you will get a solid strike. I have demoed
16 rackets, and some were good, others were bad, but this is the best
of the bunch. If you are a big swinger as I am, and you want to get
some pop to over power your opponent, this is the racket for you. It
may take you a little time to get use to the power as it did me, but
once you master it, this racket is a weapon in the right hands.

Comments: I have been playing with the RZR 100 T for the past couple of weeks and am more than
pleased with this frame. Yes the frame is powerful but it is also very easy to control. I love the heft of the racquet. The
even balance and high swing weight keeps my stroke in control. I can tend to get a little flippy on the forehand wing
which is simply something this frame will not allow! Serves are terrific with the added mass you don't need to work that
hard to put some serious juice on the ball. Maybe because I was expecting this to be a baseline beast but I have been
pleasantly surprised with volleys and half volleys. Get the racquet behind the ball and your putting some major hurt on
it. Normally on stock frames of this weight you would not find the 16x18 open string pattern that I have come to
prefer. With the open pattern the racquet is way easier on the arm than the stiffness would indicate. With all the
companies seemingly going lighter and lighter with the frames one tends to forget how much more stable against big
hitters a more substantial frame can be. I wold highly recommend giving this frame a try. Gamma should be
commended for thinking outside the typical and expected.

Comments: Tennis Warehouse had a demo day with these today. Knowing that the college tennis days
are over and
doubles is my future of tennis, the Gamma RZR 100 Hit better than the Babolat Pure Storm. It's weight was just right,
enough weight full the baseline to hit the ball through the court and solid returns yet still light enough to be able to
around quickly at the net. Added bonus the volleys were solid. It i could string it with poly/syn gut mix I think it would
just right. You need to demo this racket asap. I work at a Prince club but the rep knows my boss so I may be having
From: Allen, 3/12
Comments: As much as I'm not a taper beam fan, this racquet with its weight and balance should be the
anticipates demo of my life until I get to design my own racquet. The specs on this frame are a mix between today's
head size as well as heavy like a player's racquet. gamma's frames might be stiffer than the exo3 tours but don't like
the rda scare
you away, these gamma frames aren't stiff and hollow like a Babolat. I promise that this racquet will steal the power
crowns from the Aeropro and Pure Drive Roddicks. Get ready to see a new era in tweener sticks and make sure you
have a good
hybrid in this thing.
