Comments: I am amending my former review containing glowing praise for this racquet. It ultimately was too
"clubby" and chewed up my arm. I unsuccessfully tried different lead and replacement grip combinations. My resolution was
switching to the Yonex VCore Tour 97 which was arm-friendly, with less pop than the Slaz but with ample power.
Comments: This stick is the bomb! I transitioned from the Dunlop Aerogel 400D 300 Tour and it was an excellent
upgrade. The Slaz has the highest swing weight (331) of any recent racquet for me. It feels both formidable and maneuverable at
the 11.3 oz strung weight. I added a 1/2 size grip buildup sleeve, changed to a Wilson Shock Shield replacement grip with gel,
and placed four 1/4 sections of a 4" Babolat tungsten balancing strips at 10 and 2 o'clock on both sides of the face. TW strung it
well at 49 lbs with Technifibre X1 Bi-phase 16g natural. The medium-range racquet weight, higher swing weight, soft multi-
filament strings at lower tension, and my racquet customization created a fab stick that performs well while feeling comfortable.
The Slaz enhanced my game due to its increased plow-through, stability, and power, while allowing me to be precise and
energized. I am very happy with the racquet and the complimentary bag was a great bonus. Thank you TW for offering Slazenger
racquets while pricing them competitively, particularly with the excellent comp bag incentive. And thank you, particularly to Chris
Edwards and the TW Playtester team, who provided me with your friendly feedback and suggestions for customization. TW &
Comments: Excellent stick, plays very similar to the Blade 18x20, but found it to be a bit more stable and precise.
Definitely the best racquet in this range along with the Blade. Very nice paint job. It does everything well, I will be getting a
second one soon.
