Wilson released teaser versions of their Clash tennis racquet late last year with a “dazzle” inspired color scheme. The design was eye catching, and served as a great marketing piece to get players excited about the new racquet.Fast forward to Spring 2019, and Wilson has updated their product line with some BOLD black and white graphics, similar to the dazzle look from last year. The racquets included are the Pro Staff 97L, Blade 98S, Ultra 100L, and the Ultra Junior 26. The designs are completely monochrome, save for the Wilson text on the shaft. The new frames are outlined below.
Volkl has carved out a niche among tennis players with a consistent racquet line dedicated to comfort, feel, and performance. The company has also created a solid string selection for players who like the control offered by co-polyester mono-filament strings. Polyester strings have gotten much more user-friendly since they first came on the market and Volkl has helped pave the way by producing more comfortable and arm friendly co-polyester strings
Whereas the ASICS GEL-Resolution offers strong durability, and the Speed models are lightweight and quick around the court, the Court FF 2 promises the perfect blend of support, speed, and comfort.
Wilson updates their flagship, high-performance tennis shoe for 2019 with the Rush Pro 3.0. It is a daunting task to try and improve one of the most well-rounded shoes on the market, and having extensively reviewed the 2.5, I was curious to see the adjustments Wilson made. The most glaring change for me was on the scale. Wilson managed to cut nearly an ounce off the Rush Pro 3.0*, making the shoe faster and a touch more dynamic. The upper has been upgraded with Sensifeel 2.0, and features a lightweight mesh in contrast to the 2.5 with no noticeable loss in stability or comfort. The mesh upper also enhances the shoes breathability and initial fit.
SF or SuperFabric has been utilized in the redesign of the shoe. SuperFabric has been used for military applications and is known as a brutally tough armor technology, which is both lightweight and flexible. In a recent interview with Forbes Magazine’s Tim Newcomb, HEAD’s footwear manager Simon Brennais had this to say about the partnership with SuperFabric.
