Oh No – I need to buy a new tennis racket!
…it is difficult, but doesn’t need to be stressful
With new rackets from the major manufacturers come claims of new materials, new properties and fantastic performance characteristics. How can the normal player analyse and process these claims and make a purchase decision based on the information provided?
For example, so far in 2019 we have seen the launch of several new rackets such as:
Dunlop CX Series
Dunlop CX Series with the claim “exciting new technology – Sonic Core made with Infinergy®, by BASF – a super elastic material, with the benefit of being very light, the perfect match to meet the demands of the modern day player.”
Wilson Clash Series
Wilson CLASH series with the claim “worlds first racket intentionally engineered to bend with any swing style and allowing players to swing freely and confidently with maximum ball pocketing and ultimate control. Mix that with Stablesmart, which is a unique frame geometry, designed through digital simulation, provides the best in class stability and power for the most flexible frame in tennis.”
