Rest of the Slazenger written reviews?
Hi TWers,

When are the rest of the written reviews up? I have unexpectedly really liked the V98 Team (thought it would be way too light but love it) and was going to add a third but want a V100 Tour or V100 Team instead. Andy kindly responded to a couple of question on YouTube. Also interested in Chris and Karly's views on the V100 Tour and Team as they were in both reviews (and Chris is all three). Views appreciated as are respective preferences of the reviewers.

Look for the rest of the reviews to be up in 1-2 weeks. With so many playtests happening in the last two months we have been a little backed up. I can have Karly and Chris give their thoughts on the racquets.

Thanks for the patience!

Hi Dgdavid,

Personally I thought the Slazenger V100's played extremely similar to each other; both had a stable and solid feel, produced a ton of power, and were extremely easy to maneuver (especially considering their mid swingweights). Overall really fun and easy racquets to play with.

I'd said the most noticeable difference for me was the amount of control. I had an easier time controlling my shots with the V100 Tour, as I thought the V100 Team generated a considerable amount of power compared to the Tour.

As for downsides, the thing that stood out the most to me was the stiffness of the frames. Both felt a little too firm for my taste, but I've also had wrist issues in the past. Apart from their stiff feel, the V100's were easily two of the more favorable racquets that I've tested just because of how easy they were to swing and produce pace.

I hope this helps!

Karly, TW

Thanks Karly, really appreciate it.

Going to try the Team first I think.
