Wilson Ultra 100UL v3
Wilson adds another chapter to the lightest and fastest member of the Ultra franchise. Named the Ultra 100UL, this racquet is packed with speed, precision and power. At under 10 ounces strung and boasting a very low swing weight, the Ultra 100UL is a solid option for early intermediates, beginners, rising juniors or the recreational player who wants a racquet with a small learning curve. According to Wilson, this racquet's power comes from three strategic enhancements. It starts with less racquet twisting at impact (stability), which is achieved with a Power Rib construction in the shaft along with an integrated Perimeter Weight System in the head. These features are complemented nicely by Sweet spot Channels at 3/9 o'clock, which lengthen the cross strings for greater energy return. On groundstrokes this racquet moves through contact with explosive speed to deliver easy power and accurate targeting. Although it isn't as stable as the heavier Ultras, this racquet's quick handling and predictable response will give improving players more confidence when addressing the ball. At net, the Ultra 100UL moves into position with ease, assuring that you won't be caught off guard. This racquet also shines on serve where it whips powerfully through contact to deliver easy placement and effective power. Recommended to the dedicated beginner or early intermediate who wants to start hitting a more precise and powerful ball.
