Excellent racket for a beginner/those without the strongest serve
on 16 July 2015
After getting into the sport using a borrowed (old) racket I decided to get my own. I shopped about looking for the lightest one before realising that my serve could only just hold out to the guys I was playing and that racket tipped the scales at over 200g. I borrowed a friend's 130g and it was just crazy light, could barely get any power behind serves or shots so opted for this at 160g with a head heavy balance.
First of all, off the back of other reviews I bought a grip at the same time, and replaced the grip the day it arrived. The grip that comes on the racket is about as thin as paper and didn't feel great in the hand. With a new grip it felt great to hold, and was just brilliant on the court. I was able to get a lot of the more delicate shots I was missing before with the cumbersome old racket.
The racket comes with a fairly cheap-looking head cover, but does the job just fine (I'll probably upgrade to a proper bag soon though.)
The racket is also supplied with 3 2-spot balls, which I've never played with before but really made a better game for me playing against friends who are much stronger but perhaps not as fast across the court.
All in I have no regrets, great racket, well worth the £25 I paid, it has definitely helped improve my game over the old and borrowed rackets I've been using up until now.
