I warmed up yesterday with someone hitting a Fox SAR racquet. He was putting some EXTREME spin on the ball. His slice backhand had action like I've not seen before. I asked where he got it and he said he ordered it online a month ago from Fox tennis. I can't find fox tennis. Has anyone heard of this company or the SAR racquet?

Fox folded years ago. I used to have a couple of the WB sticks bak in the late 80's. They were pretty nice and BERY flexable even back then.

They don't give very detailed specs about their racquets. I could never order or consider a demo them without more info.

Same here. I wish I had asked to hit it because I love Spinnnnnnnn.

I see all their tennis racquets are 50% off. Hmmmmmm.

Well I am pretty sure your opponent was causing the extreme spin not the racquet. You can get some extra spin with an open string pattern, but most of the spin is from your own technique.

Yeah I know that's true for the most part but I have a Yonex RQ 420 that I can't spin much at all. It's strung with the same string (prince synthetic gut) as my volkl catapult V1 mp but 4 lbs. tighter. I can spin the volkl much better than the Yon.
