- ISOMETRIC RACQUET SHAPE
For Enhanced Sweet Spot
A square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a 7% larger sweet spot for greater control without sacrificing power.
Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRIC™ design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRIC™ racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. ISOMETRIC™ technology delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
- QUAD FORCE GEAR
For a larger sweet spot and improved maneuverability
The four corner grommets are integrated within the frame structure to improve maneuverability and increase the cross-section height for increased frame stability and power.
- Ergo Power Grip
Added comfort and power
A tapered grip shape gradually thickens from the top of the grip to the butt cap for a greater contact area with the handle making it easier to grip the racquet
- Throat Trench
For a larger sweet spot
Grommets are sunk into frame at the yoke increasing the length of the main strings
- REACT RESIN
Lightweight and flexible
By incorporating a unique material, React Resin, into the graphite, the racquet becomes lighter and more flexible for a comfortable feel.
- Tri-Shut System
Less strain on the arm
A three-part technology system that reduces harsh vibrations:
1. Shockless Grommets – absorb harsh vibrations from the string bed and withstand re-strings
2. VIBSLAYER CARBON – increases shock absorption at the top of the frame while maintaining power
3. VDM (Vibration Dampening Mesh) – filters unwanted vibrations within the grip
- Liner Tech
For improved power and comfort
Straight hole grommets elongate the strings to optimize power and comfort on off-center shots.
