Racquet of the line “ULTRA TOUR”, the mythical brand of tennis, WILSON, in its version of 2020. Composed of a carbon structure and face with double carbon cover. It has a high density EVA core. It’s diamond-shaped, not too aggressive. It has a rough surface and matt finish on the face, and glossy on the edge, which has a curvature contrary to the usual. The heart is full instead of open.
When you pick it up for the first time, you get the feeling of a well-finished, robust and lightweight racket. The swing tends slightly towards the head, and the filled heart helps pull the swing down.
By placing the overgrips, you will be able to slightly optimise the swing towards the handle. If you fail to place more than 1 overgrip the option also falls for putting the included weights to lower the paddle balance. On the contrary if you still want to add more power, put the weights included at the top of the racket at the spot indicated on the protector. This is a very viable option for when you like a lot of all the other features of a paddle, less the swing.
At stake is a racket with a medium-soft touch. Quite comfortable. The sweet spot is not bad for the more aggressive format. In terms of power, it leaves something to be desired, being a diamond racket, however what is lacking in power, definitely gains in control and comfort. It has a short output to tend to average.
IN THE NET:
In the net trays and volleys come out with enough fluidity, given the positive handling for the format. In the smash, a slightly higher power was expected, however, you will be able, with some of the right technique to draw by 3, by 4 or bring the ball back.
BACK OF THE COURT:
Control in the defensive zone is one of the positives of this racket, which at first seemed more focused on the attacking zone. The output is sufficient and allows the player to set the blow. The sweet spot is quite reasonable for the shape and positive handling helps within the possible, for a diamond shape, to respond to the most complicated balls. The lobs come out naturally whenever you hit the sweet spot, but you want a complete and technically correct hit.
The weight tested was 360gr.
The surface is rough with matt finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has a medium-low sound and with a medium timbre.
The safety cord is adjustable, which is always preferable.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a very solid racket. Well cared for, it can last a long time with good performance.
- Handleable to format
- Adjustable Safety Cord
- Some power is missing
In conclusion, this is a rather interesting racket on the part of the mythical Wilson brand. Very comfortable and easy for a typically aggressive format. It serves mostly left-wing players, but given the control characteristics it also has, it can also serve right-wing players who like this format.
The positive handling for the shape, coupled with an interesting sweet spot, make this racket a valid option for those who like diamond rackets and need control as well.
It Has a medium-soft knock. In defensive phase the control is above average, despite the output something short. On the net, i could be more aggressive, but you’ll be able to reach a good depth. It is possible, with the correct technique, and a good power printed by the player, draw by 3, by 4 and bring the ball back.
The visual part is minimalist, but very well achieved in our opinion, with the strong blue contrasting with black.
I felt virtually no vibration in the arm, and the filled heart helps minimize the transmission of unwanted vibrations to the player.
A good option for those players looking for a comfortable racket in an aggressive mold.
